2020 Hampton Roads International Auto Show
Dodge Grand Caravan
STATUS: Unchanged for 2020 - When Chrysler announced it was applying the Voyager to base-model Pacificas, it was assumed that the move would spell the demise of Dodge's long-serving minivan. Such is not the case - at least not yet - as the Grand Caravan returns for yet another season. Huge interior space, decent performance and an attractive price make the GC popular with budget-minded (and smart) buyers. There are easy-to-read gauges and soft-touch dashboard and door-panel surfaces give the cabin an upscale vibe. Then there are the dozen or so cupholders plus a variety of small-item bins and pockets (including dual glove boxes) that speak to the vehicle's utility. The standard third-row split-folding bench seat can be optionally power folded to create a flat load floor. The available Stow 'n Go feature hides the second-row seat beneath the floor, but when the seat is left in its upright position, the floor space is available for storage. Note that the Grand Caravan is devoid of the latest active-safety tech.
