2017 Dodge Grand Caravan
The 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan has a legacy of being one of the most flexible and affordable ways of ferrying around up to eight people around town, with a seating system superior to almost anything else in its class. Friendly to a tight budget and capable of offering you nearly anything you need, you can’t go wrong with this smart workhorse of a minivan.

No minivan is going to truly be judged on its exterior styling. A minivan is made to be judged on its interior space, flexibility and seating capacity and the Grand Caravan scores highly in these all-important areas. Eight seats is an impressive start, but the way those seats can be moved and folded through the Stow ‘N Go seating system (standard on all but the base trim) is what makes the Dodge so appealing to families.
When you’re hauling eight people, you’re hauling quite a hefty payload–and you need an engine that can handle such a sizeable load without a hiccup. The 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan steps up to the plate, no problem, with all versions of the Dodge coming standard with a 3.6-liter V-6. You’ll get plenty of low- and mid-range power, and this powerful unit handles a full load of passengers and cargo with consummate ease.
The 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan lineup is pretty straightforward with just four trim levels: SE, SE Plus, SXT and GT. Entry level SE models come standard with a fold-down third-row seat, power locks and mirrors, cruise control and keyless entry, while the SE Plus adds that second-row Stow ‘n Go fold-away seats and Bluetooth with audio streaming. If you don’t want to go up a trim, the Stow ‘n Go seating system is available as an option for the SE. The Grand Caravan SXT will get buyers satellite radio, a power 8-way driver seat, power sliding side doors, and a power tailgate, which at still less than $30,000 represents excellent value. If you want the super tricked out minivan life, the top-of-the-line GT model offers upscale features like a rear view camera, a leather interior and remote start standard, among others.
Grand Caravan Quality
Even though the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan remains accessible even to those on a tight budget, the quality has not been compromised. In the cabin, you’ll get a real feeling of quality, especially in higher trims, and will enjoy the clean, contemporary look of the slim, low dash. The entire cabin feels airy and expansive, while remaining comfortable–and that’s a testament to both the styling and the materials.
The 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan fills a need in the minivan market: an affordable, powerful, and smartly designed minivan that doesn’t try to be anything that it’s not. When you’re looking for a terrific vehicle for hauling a large family around, it’s hard to find a better option than the charming 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan.
