Exterior styling gets lots of attention, but most of us spend more time sitting inside our vehicles than admiring them from the outside. Great interior design is what really counts and what influences a great driving experience. And that helps to explain why year in and year out, the Dodge Grand Caravan is the acknowledged industry leader in the minivan category.
Key to the Grand Caravan cabin is the ultra-flexible Stow ’n Go seating system, which allows you to tailor the whopping 143 cubic feet of interior volume to your unique, constantly changing needs. In seconds, the 2nd and 3rd rows can be folded down to provide a perfectly flat cargo floor. Or the seats can be individually folded up/down to provide 81 different custom seating configurations—all with one hand. The Grand Caravan after all is the most versatile vehicle in its class. Every other minivan requires the cumbersome process of physically removing the 2nd row seats from the vehicle or folding them down onto the floor instead of into it to create a flat load floor.
Additionally, when the vehicle is parked, the rear 60/40 seats can be fully flipped-over to face backward in a tailgate position, individually or in unison, or lowered into a reclining position, and it easily folds into the floor behind it with a few easy pulls on the conveniently numbers straps. Meanwhile, the rear liftgate in its open position can serve as a rain canopy or sunshade—it’s the perfect setup for tailgate parties.
Grand Caravan is even versatile at Entertaining. It offers entertainment features for the whole family. It has a dual screen entertainment system with an industry exclusive Blu-ray player to ensure you can watch the latest movies in high-definition quality. The system plays both Blu-ray and DVD formats and is viewable in the 2nd and 3rd all-new VGA screens. Passengers can opt to connect their gaming system while others enjoy the ride. USB and AUX ports are also built in, providing full compatibility with personal music devices. There’s even available Web+ by Mopar®, which transforms the Grand Caravan into a mobile hotspot with multiple device connectivity. Driver and passengers can access email and websites from a range of up to 150 feet.
Up front, the driver is treated to a state-of-the-art instrument display with large, readable gauges and careful ergonomics. The three-spoke steering wheel includes integrated controls for the audio, navigation, and speed control systems—and an available class-exclusive, heated steering wheel option. Pilot and co-pilot share an available integrated Super Console with a novel pass-through feature to safely deliver drinks, toys, and other family items to the second seating row.
From most every angle, the Grand Caravan provides the ultimate in comfort and function. It’s no wonder at all that Dodge calls this vehicle “the end of ‘Are we there yet?’”
“Industry exclusive” features exclude other vehicles built by Chrysler (e.g. the Blu-ray DVD player) and some of the photos show optional equipment.
