What's new on the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan?
There are no significant new features on the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan.
How does the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan compare to other vans?
The Grand Caravan has a much lower starting price than other minivans, at $24,590 – more than $4,000 less than the Odyssey and Sienna — but you don't get much for that low cost. You can add options or step up to higher trim levels to get some modern family conveniences – such as Bluetooth, power rear windows and rear air conditioning – at a still comparatively affordable price, though.
What features in the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan are most important?
The Grand Caravan is powered by a 283-horsepower V-6 teamed with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. Standard features include a 60/40-split folding third row with tailgate-seating mode, a CD stereo, heated side mirrors, air conditioning and keyless entry.
Available safety features include a blind spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert and a backup camera. Also available are power sliding doors, Stow 'n Go fold-into-floor second-row seats, a power liftgate, a dual-screen Blu-ray rear entertainment system, a navigation system, remote start, rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated front- and second-row seats and a heated steering wheel.
As is the case with all new vehicles, the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan comes standard with front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system.
Should I buy the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan?
The interior quality is great for its price at higher trim levels and configurations, especially with the one-touch Stow 'n Go second-row seats. The Grand Caravan also has appealing, assertive styling. If price is a major factor for you, the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT or R/T is worth a test drive.
Do know, however, that the Stow 'n Go seats are lacking for comfort, and there isn't much backward room to adjust the front seats. In general, while the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan has a low starting price, the tradoff is that it doesn't have the same standard features as competitors like the Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey.
