The Original Soldiers On
The Dodge Grand Caravan is the minivan that started it all, way back in 1983. It continues to offer the lowest starting price in the minivan segment. The current-generation Grand Caravan dates back to the 2008 model year and its resale values are below the category average, things to keep in mind when weighing Dodge's people-mover against some of the others.
"Although the Honda Odyssey and Nissan Quest are better drivers, it’s not by much, and the Grand Caravan has a softer ride that actually is quite comfortable. The V6’s ample power is much appreciated both when passing and merging, as well as when pulling a loaded van up steep grades." Find out more in our 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan full review.
Available Stow 'n Go seats in the second row can be folded flat into the floor with one hand in less than five seconds. When the seats are up, you can use those same bins to store smaller items that will be hidden from view. The third row folds flat as well, allowing for a cargo area akin to that of a moving van.
