2015 Dodge Grand Caravan Review

2015 is going to be the last year that the Grand Caravan will be featured in the Dodge lineup, which is a shame since it’s been a staple of the minivan class almost since its invention. It still is one of the best values in minivans as far as space and features go, and is one of the more affordable minivans out there. If you want to find a good deal on a Grand Caravan, head to Las Vegas Dodge.

Changes to the 2015 Grand Caravan are not significant from the previous year’s model, with the exception of the Super Stow ‘N Go Seating and Storage System, which allows the second- and third-row seats to fold completely flat in a matter of seconds.  Another cool seating feature is Tailgate Seating. When parked, the third-row 60/40 split bench seat can flip completely backward, allowing the seats to face outward. The 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan is a great van for anyone looking to transport their family.

The first benefit of the Grand Caravan is that it is one of the best minivans as far as utility goes. It can carry more cargo and people than any other van in its class, with up to eight passengers and quite a bit of stuff. The storage system under the seats is made possible by making the seats thinner, which has had little, if any, impact on seat comfort. And if the inside of this stalwart people-hauler is filled, the Stow N’ Place Roof Rack System can carry up to 150 pounds of luggage.

Another nice element of the Grand Caravan is the single drivetrain configuration as well as the 3.6 liter, V-6 engine that provides plenty of horsepower in order to move around quite a bit of weight. In fact, 283 horsepower and a 6 speed automatic transmission makes this particular vehicle capable of handling a number of different situations while still being loaded down. The All-Speed Traction Control monitors wheel spin to give maximum traction, while the Electronic Stability Control monitors steering input and vehicle motion. Both provide a standard of safety and control regardless of road conditions.

Dodge plans to go out with the traditional boxy design that has always marked the Grand Caravan from its competitors that switched to smoother, more aerodynamic-looking frames. This design provides extra room and a much more open feel than many of its more rounded competitors. Dodge has always prided itself on value and more hauling and towing capability for the money, and the Grand Caravan provides it in spades.

The 2015 Grand Caravan also does an excellent job of continuing to produce infotainment and electronic feature packages. They have stuffed this van to the gills with electronics that make it easier to drive, safer, and more entertaining for passengers. Many of these are available on the base model which has gone down in price this year in order to make room for a higher feature package at the top of the line, letting more people take advantage of these well designed configurations.

It’ll be sad to see the Grand Caravan go, especially since 2015 looks like the best one so far. It’s still one of the top minivans available and will continue to be for several years after it’s gone.
