2014 stylish model Dodge Grand Caravan scored five out of seven in the public reviews of Minivans. The aspects taken into considerations were drivability, reliability and safety and the Dodge Grand Caravan also makes into the heart of the customer with its attractive price and versatile cabin capabilities. But in terms of space, refinement and comfort the competition score over the Dodge.


The Dodge Grand Caravan has been offered with a V6 and a standard six-speed auto transmission for all models and the surveys show that the engine though powerful is relatively a little coarse. Regarding the transmission there are positive reviews with some sources saying that it is smooth and responsive where as other quoted that it fails to respond when more power is needed. Other subject of criticism is the fuel economy which is a EPA rated 17/25mpg for city and highway and that according to reviews is low for a minivan. Some reviews also say that the Grand Caravan is stiff and uncomfortable while riding on uneven roads and the test driving showed that braking and handling during corners were quite decent.

Automotive journalists say that the interior of the Grand Caravan minivan is decently built with functional interior using high quality material. Drivers who drove the Caravan also say that the front seats would be uncomfortable for tall people experiencing difficulty in stretching their legs and the second row will be inadequate to seat grown up adults.  The minivan has a sizable cargo area and according to the test teams the Stow ‘n Go system for optional seating is quite handy as it folds the second and the third row. This would certainly compensate for the discomforts experienced by the tall passengers.

Some inputs from the automobile critics point out that even the simplest of the acts are complicated by the Uconnect infotainment TS, for an example the act of adjusting the volume of your audio system could be quite tough while you are driving. Some other standard luxury features include remote controlled keyless entry, heated side mirrors, power sliding doors offered as an option and also the 4-speaker  audio setup with aux ports, navigation, powered operated liftgate and of course the above mentioned Uconnect. For second row you have entertainment in the form of Blu-ray, dual screen and also a 9-speaker audio system.  Optional features also offer Bluetooth connectivity through phone, 2 USB ports of plug-n-play variety and, audio streaming, blind spot monitoring and rear view camera.

A V-6 and a 6-speed automatic transmission is standard for all the Grand Caravans of 2014. The minivan drives front wheel and is able to seat 7 passengers inside its cabin. There are six trim levels offered for the Caravan. The trims include American Value Package (AVP), upcoming SXT 30th Anniversary Edition, R/T, SXT, SE and edition SE30. Since its last redesigning in the 2011, the Grand Caravan has not received many changes. The 2014 model is a typical American minivan with sharp driving abilities and the 3.6 L engine connected to a 6-speed auto makes it a top vehicle for riding.
