The 2016 Dodge Caravan is an all-around fantastic vehicle for families that hosts a variety of features that make both everyday and long-distance driving smooth and painless. Its biggest highlight is storage capacity – with STOW’N GO seats enabling you to fold down the second and third row of seats in seconds and effectively tripling your available cargo space to more than 143 cubic feet. Likewise, the dynamic Uconnect infotainment and navigational system is the perfect driving companion that both aids and engages in a way that is seamless and familiar. Available across three trims with four-wheel drive, the AVP/SE, SXT and R/T models benefit from improved performance and fuel efficiency thanks to the latest 2.0-litre V6 engine.
The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is as multi-functional as it is attractive, making it the best overall minivan for family households. Seating seven passengers across three rows of seats, the vehicle offers a multitude of features sure to please everyone. Up against strong market competitors like the Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey, Mazda5 and Kia Sedona, the new Grand Caravan is definitely among the best with incredible storage capability, attractive interiors and modern technical features that will keep both driver and passengers engaged and comfortable. This award-winning minivan may be the best out there and for a good reason too, meeting every need and desire of its inhabitants and looking good doing so.
As largely a carry-over model, the new Dodge has kept its traditional look with a bulkier and flatter exterior profile that retains its attractive and imposing presence on the road. This flat design allows better space for interior storage and a visible balance among exterior elements that makes the Grand Caravan so quintessentially classic. This is the traditionally-perfect family minivan that holds outward attraction almost as valuable as interior comfort and space. The vehicle offers a variety of exterior features, such as power sliding doors, a power liftgate, quad halogen head lamps, LED taillights, crosshair grille, heated mirrors and sunscreen glass – all in the name of bringing ultimate comfort to your family.
Slightly revamped from the previous model, the 2016 Grand Caravan seats seven passengers and boasts a better interior made with premium materials (either cloth or available leather) for a stylish and more comfortable feel throughout the vehicle’s cabin. The highlight of this award-winning vehicle, however, is the STOW’N GO seats, which enable you to fold the second- and third-row seats into the floor within seconds, revealing tons of available space for storage. From a useability and competitive standpoint – it doesn’t get much better than this in the realm of minivans. Additional interior features include adjustable LED overhead reading lamps, soft-touch armrests and door panels, and an observation mirror for maximum visibility throughout the vehicle’s core. Dodge has clearly spared no expense by offering the most convenience for the entire family in both everyday and long-distance driving.
What Dodge does incredibly well, perhaps, is keeping pace with technological advancements and features that not only aid the driver, but also engage passengers during long commutes. The Grand Caravan is the first and only minivan to offer a dual-screen Blu-ray and DVD Entertainment System, which comes with two wireless infrared headphones, a remote control, HDMI connection and two rear USB ports for charging game consoles. WiFi hotspot connectivity is also offered, enabling you to stay online and updated even when travelling. The driver’s ultimate luxury, however, is the available touchscreen Uconnect infotainment and navigation system, offered with a high-resolution 6.5-inch display. This high-quality system combines CD, DVD and MP3 capability, SiriusXM satellite radio, Garmin GPS navigation, detailed traffic updates and an internal hard drive for storage into one impressive multimedia system. If you’re looking for a technically-loaded, modern minivan – look no further than the new Grand Caravan.
The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan receives improved performance with the latest 2.0-litre V6 engine, presented with hybrid enhancements for the eco-friendly household. With the help of an Ecoboost engine, the updated minivan receives better fuel efficiency without removing its high engine specification. Safety is a huge concern for Dodge family vehicles, so the Grand Caravan is equipped with traction control, stability control and anti-lock brakes with brake assist for maximum protection against collision or unsafe driving conditions.
This award-winning vehicle is packed with features that make it extra appealing to large households that aren’t afraid to take advantage of its numerous storage, technological and power features. Look no further than the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan to meet all of your family’s travelling needs, while working overtime to give you what you want as well.
