The Dodge Grand Caravan is indisputably America’s favorite minivan. Dodge sold 141,648 Grand Caravans in 2012, representing a 28 percent increase over 2011. Add in 111,744 sales for the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country, the Grand Caravan’s mechanically similar but decidedly up-market cousin, and the resulting quarter-million minivans account for nearly half the entire U.S. minivan market. The Chrysler Group minivans have left Nissan, Toyota, Honda and some other bit players scrambling for the half that’s left over, perhaps appropriate given Chrysler popularized the minivan.
Grand Caravan rides lower and more firmly than minivans did a few years ago, making it more responsive to driver inputs. Long gone are the annoying wallow and float once characteristic of the breed. Yet ride quality is quite smooth. Like all modern minivans, the Grand Caravan is big, so it can be a beast to handle in tight quarters. The Grand Caravan, Toyota Sienna, Nissan Quest and Honda Odyssey are all roughly the same size: extra large. We should call these vehicles midi-vans or, simply, vans because there is nothing mini about them.
Grand Caravan SXT adds a power liftgate, power sliding doors, power adjustable pedals, six-speaker audio, a more elaborate Super Console, power rear and rear quarter windows, a black roof rack with side rails, and 225/65R17 all-season tires on 17-inch alloy wheels.
