Tsk, tsk, Edmund's pans the Grand Caravan as outdated. Give me a break! It was so cutting edge when it was released others are still catching up. Stow n'Go? The game changer. Sure, you could pay nearly twice as much for a Sienna or Odyssey, (and Edmund's thinks you should?) but why? We upgraded our 2008 Town and Country for a 2019 Grand Caravan SXT and found the updates refreshing and intuitive. Almost a full 1/3 more horsepower, and yet better gas mileage. And our SXT has beautiful leather seats, bluetooth, auto sliding doors, remote start, and plenty of other features for a no-brainer low price. You know, you can't please everyone, but oh, how this pleases us.

Rented this van for a road trip from Orange County California to the Grand Canyon, Zion, and Bryce National Parks, a road trip coming in at 1450 miles total. There were three adult passengers plus myself along with our luggage. Didn't expect to enjoy the 2019 Grand Caravan much, just wanted a vehicle that would be comfortable on an extended trip and accept all of our assorted baggage. Ended up enjoying just about everything about it. It was a good driver with an assuring road feel including nice taut steering and capable brakes. Myself and my passengers were all very comfortable on the entire journey in the four bucket seats provided. Found the center mounted video controls easy to use, including navigation and Sirius satellite radio, even though I've never owned a car with this feature. Averaged a very respectable 28 mpg through most of the trip. On that note, about the only thing I found to be a little lacking was the tall gearing (I'm sure to yield the good gas mileage). As a result, on steep grades you definitely have to put your foot into it (step on the gas) to get it to downshift when it needs to. Overall though, it's a very capable ride. I've been a foreign car owner for my entire life including British, Japanese, and German makes, never an American made one. Whenever I've driven domestic vehicles I've always felt they came up short against their foreign competition. The Grand Caravan was a surprisingly good experience, one that has shifted my attitude toward the better for cars built in the good old USA.

Minivans aren't just for soccer moms with kids

Aging individuals are finding that the minivan is invaluable if you need to travel with adaptive medical equipment such as a wheelchair and oxygen tanks. After a large search of the minivan market, the Stow n Go seats plus the reliable 6 speed automatic 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT beat out the Chrysler Pacifica, Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna. The finishes in the SXT delivered a heated steering wheel, heated seats as well as leather upholstery -- all very desirable features in our search. All in all, the 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan has exceeded our expectation after one week of ownership. With the passing of my husband recently, I now find myself with 2 vehicles, a beloved Honda CR-V and the 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan. In spite of my attachment and loyalty to the SUV, I have found myself driving the van almost exclusively over the last month and I love it! I like to haul "stuff" and the van is perfect! The stow n go seats are easy to use. More importantly, I LOVE driving the van! It's never too late to discover what you've been missing!

Dodge Grand Caravan vs Toyota Seina

First of all, we reserved a Chrysler Pacifica and Budget failed to provide. They offered a price cut for a Dodge Grand Caravan. We were OK with that.....We were pleasantly surprised. My wife took her family from Memphis, TN to Phoenix, AZ with low stress/drama. The car is so intuitive and easy to drive she actually liked it better than the car she has driven since 2011. I flew to Arizona to meet up with her and take over the wheel. I was amazed at the overall functionality of the vehicle. Visibility is 100%!!! We averaged over 27 mpg over 4,000 miles of traveling (5 passengers with luggage). The only problem was the transmission which for me wasn't an issue at all. It has a severe tendency to NOT downshift to maintain speed when the cruise control is on so it loses up to 10mph before it downshifts. However, the 6 speed auto has a manual shift mode. On our long I-40 stretch from Arizona to Tennessee I used the cruise control (of course). The PCM seamed reluctant to downshift to maintain speed (saving gas). The dash mounted shifter is 2" from your right hand and with a flick of your finger you can downshift a gear to maintain your cruise control speed flawlessly/seaminglessly. It was so smooth all my passengers fell asleep......Fast forward 2 weeks we went on another trip and PURPOSELY reserved another Dodge Caravan. We ended up with a Toyota Siena. I was actually excited about this, but was horribly disappointed. The Toyota has electric steering assist compared to the Dodge's old school hydraulic. The Dodge's steering was WAY better!! The Dodge we rented came with leather and navigation for less money than the Toyota. The Yota only had 1 USB port!! Really??? It had cloth seats, no navigation, and a HORRIBLE 8 speed that was constantly hunting/changing gears. The Yota had no easily manual shift mode to cancel out the vehicle's inadequate PCM to select the right gear. It was total driving misery! Even worse was the throttle. It is no linear. The light turns green and you give normal throttle input to accelerate and you barely move. Everyone is blowing your doors off at this point so you increase throttle input. That's when all the sudden all hell breaks looks and this Yota becomes RACE CAR and anyone drinking a cappuccino or latte s wearing it in their lap There's no in between. You are either getting your doors blown off or you are off to the races. The Dodge Grand Caravan had very linear throttle inputs and you could easily predict the upshifts and downshifts. If you are driving to provide comfort to your passengers by not throwing them around in their seats the Dodge Grand Caravan blows the Toyota Siena out of the water for less money/

This is our second caravan and trust me, at ten grand or more below the competition, it’s a great value. Plenty of power for a mini van, plenty of room for the family, plenty of storage below and behind the seats, plenty of room for those of us who aren’t tiny, and plenty of savings overall.
