2016 Dodge Grand Caravan review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan?

The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is a three-row, seven-seat minivan that competes with the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna. It has three trim levels, including the AVP/SE, SXT and R/T.

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.

Very excited for our first large family car!

My kids are so excited for all the space and how shiny and like new the car is. There are only 56000 mi. on the van and so we are happy that it will be a part of the family for many years to come!

5.0

Stylish and practical...perfect!

I love the style of the outside including the running boards that Dodge installed. The stow and go seating folds into the floor to make it literally a cargo van in addition to being a 7-passenger van. The vehicle is a great value for the money. The cool blue lighting on the ceiling, the instrument cluster and console is outstanding in style and use. The seats are very comfortable even for long trips.

3.3

Reliable and I own it

This car meet all my needs. It has plenty of legroom in the front and back. It has enough USB ports which is very helpful during long trips.
