The 2017 Grand Caravan has great lines - meaning it's a direct descendant of the Town & Country minivan that established the category back in the 1980s. The new Grand Caravan carries on in the tradition of delivering powerful, people-moving performance with an interior cabin area that is extraordinarily flexible and spacious. On top of that, the Grand Caravan is the most affordable minivan in its class, and offers a lot of convenient features for the money.
If you're going to be driving with as many as seven passengers and all their gear, you need a minivan with serious power. The new 2017 Grand Caravan delivers, on the strength of a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that makes 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. It's paired with a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic and delivers a very respectable (for its size), EPA-rated 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
The 2017 Grand Caravan comes in a relatively straight-forward four trim levels: the SE, SE Plux, SXT and GT. Cargo flexibility, as noted earlier, is exceptional, largely thanks to Dodge's innovative Stow 'n Go second-row seating. Instead of having to pull them out to make room for extra-large cargo pieces, the second row quickly and easily folds right into the Grand Caravan's floor. It's remarkably convenient, and makes the prospect of using the Grand Caravan for more than carrying passengers far more attractive.
The base Grand Caravan SE is pretty well equipped, especially for its price. Features include tri-zone climate control (including air conditioning for the rear area), a rearview camera, the Stow 'n Go second row seating and cruise control and heated side mirrors. It also includes a 6.5-inch touchscreen display along with a six-speaker audio system. Available options for the SE include the UConnect Hands-Free package, with adds Bluetooth connectivity, and power-operated second- and third-row windowns. The Grand Caravan SE also replaces the second row bench with captain's chairs (great for keeping kids divided!).
When you step up to the Grand Caravan SXT you get some great additional comfort and convenience features, including power-sliding rear doors, leather upholstery, a power liftgate, remote engine start and automatic headlights. Opting for the SXT's Driver Convenience package is a worthwhile investment for its heated front and second-row seats along. It also give you a heated steering wheel and automatic climate control and an overhead storage bin. If you want sportier, driver-oriented performance, the Grand Caravan GT adds a performance-tuned suspension and a driver information center, along with a nicer nine-speaker sound system.
