2015 Dodge Grand Caravan Preview

Pros: The 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan boasts a powerful V6, while its highly versatile and spacious cabin offers tons of storage and innovative seating. And what about the extremely competitive prices (dealer rebates included)? For all these reasons and more, the Dodge Grand Caravan is by far the best-selling minivan in Canada. 

Cons: Interior materials are often cheaper than the competition's, the ride is somewhat bouncy, and handling is mediocre. The Grand Caravan also suffers from sub-par reliability.

2015 Dodge Grand Caravan Price: The Grand Caravan comes in eight different trim levels ranging from the base Canada Value Package at $27,995 to the fully loaded R/T at $41,895. Standard features include third-row Stow N' Go seats, dual-zone air conditioning, and a Uconnect multimedia interface.

2015 Dodge Grand Caravan Fuel Economy: Based on Natural Resources Canada's new 5-cycle testing procedure, the Grand Caravan now burns 13.7L/100km in the city and 9.4L/100km on the highway.

Improvements and Changes: Only slight packaging changes and a revised colour menu.

Powertrain: The award-winning 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine, delivering best-in-class 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, helps ensure the Dodge Grand Caravan is up to any task. It teams up with a 6-speed automatic transmission, as well as innovations like a segment-exclusive fuel economizer mode. With the proper equipment, you can tow up to 1,633kg.

Cargo Capacity: The Grand Caravan's trunk can swallow 934 litres of gear. Folding all the rear seats increases the amount of cargo room to 4,072 litres.

Safety: The 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan keeps occupants safe with seven airbags, ABS, brake assist, electronic stability control with traction control, and trailer sway control. Advanced systems like a blind spot monitor, rear cross traffic alert, back-up assist, and rain-sensing wipers are available.

Comparing the 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan: There are very few traditional minivans left on the market. The short list also includes the Chrysler Town & Country, Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, and Kia Sedona.
