Dodge Grand Caravan Report #05: Yellowstone or Bust
By KBB.com Editors on September 17, 2008 2:16 PMFlying in the face of gas prices, KBB's video road test editor Micah Muzio recently enjoyed the greatest of American traditions; a family road trip. With his wife, mom and dad along for the ride, Micah traveled some 3,400 roundtrip miles between Southern California and Wyoming's Yellowstone National Park in KBB's 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan long-term tester. The journey revealed a number of interesting facts about the Grand Caravan. First, its smooth highway ride is balanced by confidence-inspiring handling on mountain roads, making it an ideal cross-country people hauler. Second, the Grand Caravan's dual rear video screens, DVD player and Sirius Satellite TV can even keep bona fide adults like Micah's father entertained for hours. Third, the 180-degree rotating Swivel 'n Go second-row seats aren't just a gimmick. With the second row swiveled, side doors open and stowable table in place, the Grand Caravan proved an ideal place to enjoy lunch at Colorado's stunning Lizard Head Pass. The humble minivan may still come up short in the cool department, but for family vacations our Dodge Grand Caravan is hard to beat.
