Bought a minivan for my puppy dogs
People think I'm crazy for purchasing a minivan to tote my dogs around, but it was the best of all options. Low enough that they can get in and out as they grow older. Room enough that my German Shepherd is not slouching, or crammed in the back set. it's perfect. I put the 2nd row of Stow & Go seating down, dog beds on the floor, and we are ready to go.
Love it after 5000 mile camper trip
These vans do what they are meant to do, carry lots of stuff or people. We just finished 5000 mile trip in the Rocky Mountains and our 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT was great. It pulled a pop up camper up and down mountains without a complaint and got great mileage doing it. We had hoped for 20 mpg and got 24mpg(actually 23.7) traveling with the traffic at highway speeds. Now without the trailer mileage approaches/exceeds 30mpg at highway speeds. And our two dogs love it too. We buy and keep our cars for long periods and have always had great performance from Dodge grand caravans.
Style, Storage and Squeal
We rented this model last year for a trip that required lots of storage room for the trip home. We were instantly converted to a minivan household! Due to an unfortunate accident (not our fault) in November, it did provide us with the opportunity to buy a new car. We didn’t even have to discuss it. We already knew what we wanted. I searched online for a 2017nmodel, and bought it over the phone in less than an hour. When my husband’s workday ended, he dropped off our other car to have the brakes relined, and got a lift from a friend straight to Landmark in Athens. He drove our new car home after signing the paperwork. Great financing, great customer service! I am handicapped which makes entering and exiting a car difficult. But because the Grand Caravan sits lower than our crossover, it’s much easier for me know. Plus there is room for my wheelchair if needed. And the power out;ets allow me to use my medical while in transit so I can withstand longer road trips. So much storage space with all seats in position. If we stow all the seats, we can slide a queen size mattress and box springs in the back with room left over! Love the separate temperatur controls in the front and rear. Rides like a car, storage room of a pickup and that v6 squeals the wheels when you have to go NOW. We weren’t picky...this was the last 2017 model left on the lot so we had no hcoice in color of van, carpet or rest of interior. Missing s power package we would like to have (seats, doors, tailgate), but otherwise it’s fabulous. And have you ever heard of getting 25mpg on surface streets? And we get 31mpg on the expressway. The economy fuel setting helps us achieve that. LOVE the Dodge Grand Caravan! And our rapidly growing teenager finally has room for his super long legs! Cant say enough nice things about the car or Landmark Dodge. Just a great experience all the way around.

2017 Dodge Grand Caravan video

JOSH SADLIER: This is Edmunds editor Josh Sadlier, and here's an expert rundown of the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan. We had to check our sources on this one, because with the debut of the new Chrysler Pacifica minivan, we figured the Grand Caravan was toast. But here it is alive and kicking for 2017, same Grand Caravan we've come to know and respect, if not necessarily love, over the years for its many practical virtues. Corporate 3.6 liter pentastar V6 sits under the hood. Six speed automatic is an outdated transmission relative to the eight and nine speed units being used in more recent price of products, but you get plenty of practicality with the Grand Caravan, as you might expect. Every minivan's got a lot of versatility, but the Grand Caravan excels in this area. It's got a ton of cargo space inside and innovative storage solutions. Step inside the grand caravan and you'll see more of that versatility. There the stow and go second row seats that dodge is justly renowned for, plenty of space in the third row for kids or even adults. That's what makes these minivans great. Again, if you're looking for versatility on some kind of a budget, the Grand Caravan continues to be a great option. In terms of features, the Grand Caravan does lag behind. You can see that touchscreens a 6.5 inch unit, instead of the 8.4 inch unit you get in the Pacifica. We're not stoked about the materials either. In terms of quality, you're taking a step down, relative to other vehicles in the class. The bottom line with the Grand Caravan is that this is a value play. If you're looking for a lot of space, and you don't want to spend a lot of money, it's an easy decision. But if you want more features or luxury for what you're spending, best to look elsewhere.

2017 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

They say you get what you pay for, and few vehicles illustrate that better than the Dodge Grand Caravan. If you're looking to transport the maximum number of people for the minimum amount of cost, the Grand Caravan is the way to go. It undercuts the next-cheapest seven-passenger competitor by a lot of money, even with tons of options piled on.

So where does the Grand Caravan belie its bargain price? Certainly not in the level of equipment: Even the most basic model comes well equipped with features like tri-zone climate control and a rearview camera. Chrysler's exclusive Stow 'n Go seats, which fold down into storage compartments in the floor, remain a star attraction.

No, the low price is reflected in two key areas. First is interior design: This iteration of the Grand Caravan was designed about a decade ago, and the interior was last updated in 2011. Materials quality, surprisingly, is fine — 2011 was the year Chrysler aimed to eliminate the cheap feel of its cabins — but the look and feel is yesterday's news. The Grand Caravan's touchscreen doesn't get the wonderful UConnect interface found in other Chrysler products, and the interface it does get feels like it comes from the Stone Age. (A larger screen with a slightly better interface is due late in the model year.)

Second is the lack of refinement in the driving experience. The engine is pretty good: It's Chrysler's 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, here tuned for 283 horsepower. But the six-speed automatic transmission to which it is tied is guilty of the occasional rough shift, and the whole powertrain is noisy under full power. The EPA estimates the Grand Caravan's fuel economy at 20 mpg combined (17 city/25 highway). The ride is smooth enough, though the suspension doesn't deal with bad pavement as well as the competition. Other vans do a better job of soaking up the bumps, and they also steer and handle better, instilling more confidence in the van's ability to swerve out of harm's way than does the Grand Caravan. Crash-test scores, while still very respectable, also aren't quite as good as most other vans.

In terms of value for money, though, the Grand Caravan is difficult to beat. Dodge offers four trim levels: SE, SE Plus, SXT and GT. The SE is lavishly equipped, while the SE Plus adds a few items of interest to private owners (as opposed to the rental fleets that will buy the SE). The SXT adds more appearance and comfort features, while the GT is intended to deliver a sportier driving experience. It's the only trim level to offer advanced safety features, though such features are not nearly as advanced as those offered by competing minivans. Which one is best suited for your needs? Edmunds can help find the perfect 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan for you.
