The Dodge Grand Caravan is a classic vehicle that is a familiar sight on the roads due to its versatility and comfort.

There have been other updates for the new year, including a revised lineup that now includes the SE, SE Plus, SXT, and GT. Customers will be happy to know that even more standard features will be found in each trim, and perhaps the most exciting addition is the now standard rearview camera and 6.5-inch touchscreen display.
Under the Grand Caravan's Hood
Dodge will offer a great driving experience with the Grand Caravan, due to its powerful yet efficient engine, excellent steering response, and comfortable ride quality. The Grand Caravan is powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, which is particularly impressive with its 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The Pentastar engine is linked to a dynamic six-speed automatic transmission. There is an optional towing package that can be equipped, and this will allow for a maximum towing rating of 3,600 pounds. The Grand Caravan has been tested to provide 17 miles per gallon in the city and 25 miles per gallon on the highway.

The entertainment features will include a six-speaker audio system, a CD player, an auxiliary audio jack, and a 6.5-inch touchscreen display.
