2016 Dodge Grand Caravan Walk Around


Although curves aren’t absent from its body, the Grand Caravan is essentially a big, space-efficient box on wheels. Just a glance at the relatively plain shape proclaims exactly what this vehicle provides. Namely, storage space, coupled with abundant room for passengers.

Other minivans may display more curves and decorative touches, but the clean, no-fuss, wholly practical profile of a Grand Caravan has held up nicely for a long while now. Few details differentiate the Grand Caravan from the closely related Chrysler Town & Country, apart from the Dodge crosshair grille. LED taillamps are shared with several sporty models, elsewhere in the Dodge lineup. Power sliding doors (if installed) close gently, rebounding when sensing an obstruction.

Interior

Like the exterior, the cabin of a Grand Caravan is both functional and attractive. The slim, relatively low-sitting dashboard helps produce a pleasantly airy feeling. Textures are appealing, imparting a sense of quality, though grainy plastic components can be found in the rear.

With the cleverly devised, fold-away Stow ‘n Go seats installed, the Chrysler/Dodge minivans outrank all the competition in flexibility and cargo space. With seats folded, a 4×8-foot plywood can fit inside.

Front seats could stand more firm support, as they’re somewhat spongy, but passengers enjoy abundant space all around. Second-row bucket seats are quite firm, thinly padded and less plush than seats in some rival minivans. Base SE models have a second-row bench instead. Outward visibility is quite good, courtesy of a huge greenhouse.

As in most minivans, the third row best for youngsters, though at least possible for smaller grown-ups. That row folds away manually, or via the optional power-fold system. Adding a movable/removable super console yields handy covered space between the seats.
