2008 Dodge Grand Caravan: Interior Lighting
November 11, 2008
Here's one nice touch on our 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT: interior LED lighting. It might be a little hard to tell in the above photo, but the interior white LEDs do give off a brighter and much classier-looking light temperature than incandescent bulbs. (Think of a regular flashlight versus an LED flashlight.) LEDs are used for general illumination plus the reading lights in all of the Dodge's three rows of seating.
Dodge placed LEDs on the Caravan SXT's front doors, too, and those illuminate the door pockets as well as the ground when you open the door. Though I've yet to thoroughly test them out, they seem like they'd give a better view of a dark curb than traditional side-view-mirror "puddle lamps."
There's even a Starship Enterprise-esque green illumination band along the top of the overhead console. The LEDs didn't make it all the way to the back, though, as you can see the rear of the van has regular incandescent illumination.
