The major Dodge Grand Caravan news for 2014 is the availability of an optional 30th Anniversary model, which includes numerous luxury, convenience and trim features that are otherwise, for the most part, either parts of packages or stand-alone options.
The 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan American Value Package (AVP) is made even better this year, with a lower price and more features that make it the most affordable 7-passenger minivan in America. A rear-seat entertainment package with Blu-Ray-compatible DVD player is offered on R/T and Crew models.
The 2012 Dodge Caravan minivan carries over largely unchanged for 2012. A new American Value Package (AVP) is offered creating the lowest-priced minivan in the segment. The AVP package has a host of features including second- and third-row Stow 'n Go seating, cruise control, and a V6 engine.
The SE trim receives more standard equipment including Stow 'n Go seating, cruise control, power second-row window and third-row vents and body color door handles. SXT trims now offer Dodge's Blind Spot Monitoring System, Rear Cross Path Warning System and rain-sensing wipers.
Beneath the surface of its boxier, more masculine styling, the fifth-generation Grand Caravan offers improved powertrains, more contemporary interior styling and class-exclusive options like satellite TV (offering three family channels) and clever second-row seating options. The shorter-wheelbase Caravan model is no longer.
The 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan remains as a leader on the list when a family starts shopping for a minivan, and with good reason. Going head-to-head with segment leaders like the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna, the Grand Caravan features a smooth and powerful V6 engine that deals well with full loads and freeway merges, a nicely-finished interior that includes attractive ambient lighting and the thoughtful features Stow `n Go system (allows folding the 2nd-row seats into the floor), and a very affordable price. It might be somewhat plain on the outside, but where you need it to work is on the inside, and the Dodge Grand Caravan does that very, very well.

"Almost a year into our 2012 Grand Caravan and it's been treating us well. Gets decent MPG on the long hauls and you can't beat the stow-n-go seating. Starting in 2011 the Grand Caravan got a much needed styling update on the exterior and interior and it's a good looking van. The 3.6L V6 mated to the 6-speed auto has tons of power too. My complaints are that there are often interior rattles over bumps from unknown areas which get annoying (we also have a 2010 Sienna and it's silent over the same terrain). The 6-speed can also be annoying going up hills or slight grades... it seems to get confused. Aside from the few nuances it's a good rig for how much cheaper it is than the competition."

"I love this van so far 2012 SE Grand Caravan. I get 25 mpg on hwy. and 21 mpg city. I have 8500 miles on so far with no problems. I have purchased a 7 year/70k bumper to bumper extended with vehicle with a $100.00 deduct. For peace of mind. I have owed a 1985,1989,1998 and this 2012 Dodge Caravans. I also owned a 2004,2008 Kia sedona van. also a 1997 ford aerostar van. For the price on new Dodge Caravans it is the same as Kia why spend $3000.00 more for Kia with same options."

"I HATE this car! My van has 30,324 miles on it (2.5 years old) and we have put FOUR, yes four, sets of new brakes and rotors on the vehicle! There is a sqealing in the fan motor that no one can seem to diagnose and dodge service at two different dealerships has been absolutely horrible. I will NEVER, EVER own a Dodge again!!"
