2018 Dodge Grand Caravan
Why Buy the Dodge Grand Caravan?
With its best-in-class pricing, the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan represents an excellent value. More than that, though, it prioritizes family-friendly comfort and convenience. When you add the second-row Stow ‘n Go seats, it’s easy to expand the cargo hold. Both the second- and third rows fold flat into the floor, creating the space you need for your thrift store finds and flat-screen TV splurges.
Is the Grand Caravan Front-Wheel or All-Wheel Drive?
The 2018 Grand Caravan uses a six-speed automatic transmission to send power to the front wheels. Its V6 engine straddles the line between highway-friendly power and fuel economy, earning up to 17 city/25 highway mpg.
How Many Can the Grand Caravan Seat?
The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan seats up to seven passengers in three roomy rows. All but the base model come standard with the second-row Stow ‘n Go captain’s chairs (though you can add them as an option on the base model), which help set the Caravan apart from competitors. Unlike in other minivans, the Stow ‘n Go seats fold neatly into the floor, creating a flat loading space for large items like bicycles. When you fold both the second and third rows flat into the floor, you can fill up to 143.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo space with all the cargo you could want.
Which Grand Caravan Is Best?
The 2018 Grand Caravan minivan is available as four different trim models: the SE, SE Plus, SXT, and GT. The SE comes with the thriftiest price tag, but we recommend starting with the SE Plus, which comes standard with the Grand Caravan’s famous Stow ‘n Go second-row seats. These, along with the third-row seats, fold securely into the floor so you can transport a stroller or other sizeable items with ease.
As you climb higher up the trim levels, you’ll find increasing luxury and convenience. At the SXT level, people will see you coming, thanks to this model’s chrome exterior trim. Its power-sliding rear doors help you load up the entire family with time to spare. In the top-trim GT, you’re never short on luxury, with full leather seating and an upgraded nine-speaker audio system. Luckily, all models can be had with an optional rear-seat entertainment system, so you can pop in a movie and keep your kids happily occupied, no matter how much traffic you’re facing.
