2019 Dodge Grand Caravan
The 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan keeps up with the newer and more sophisticated minivans such as the Chrysler Pacifica, Honda Odyssey, Kia Sedona, and the Toyota Sienna. Dodge’s Grand Caravan has a powerful V6 engine and nifty Stow ‘n Go seats. The Grand Caravan remains a best-seller, and there’s a reason: the starting price undersells rivals by thousands of dollars.
Avail. Engine Type
The 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan has a 3.6-liter V6 engine with a 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Known as the Pentastar, it’s a commendable engine, which delivers smooth power and a pretty good fuel economy. The engine has a 6-speed automatic transmission which has smooth shift action. Finally, the V6 is E85-compatible so that it can operate on blends of ethanol and gasoline. The Grand Caravan is a front-wheel drive, just like its rivals except for the Toyota Sienna, which offers an all-wheel-drive.
The ride quality and handling are harmless. The Grand Caravan feels relaxed when cruising and poised through corners. Well-weighted steering also gives the driver a sense of engagement as well. The brake pedal feels firm, its 180-foot stopping distance from 70 mph puts the vehicle in the middle of the pack.
Drive your loved ones in a new and roomy vehicle, and this Dodge Caravan can get the job done. Basic models include manual-sliding side doors and tailgate, but it can all be power-operated if you’re willing to spend extra on the top-line SXT model. No matter which trims you go with, the only wheel size available is 17 inches.
The Dodge Grand Caravan has seating for seven passengers. The bench seat is in the second row, where there is room for two, just like with the optional bucket seats. With either setup that buyers choose, the third row is a bench that accommodates up to three passengers. Highlights in the vehicle are its standard Stow n’ Go 2nd-row seats that fold into the floor to create a flat load space. Upfront is the necessary controls for climate and a standard 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system. As for interior colors, there is black or gray that you could choose.
The Dodge Grand Caravan has three different levels of interactivity—two of them come with touchscreens—which gives you precisely what you want. The Radio 430 includes a CD/DVD player and a high-resolution 6.5-inch touchscreen. SiriusXM is available with a one year service added.
The Radio 430 NAV, included in the vehicle, has a high-resolution 6.5-inch touchscreen. There is also SiriusXM with a one year service and a SiriusXM Travel Link with a five year of service included and Garmin GPS Navigation. The cutting-edge connectivity has convenience in mind, as they’ve stepped up their tech to make each trip an upgrade for the whole family.
The Uconnect Voice Command and Hands-Free Calling, allows passengers to operate their radio, phone, and the available Navigation system hands-free for an exceptional driver convenience experience. The 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan gives you the option of no more arguing who gets the control over what music to play. There are wireless headphones which are included with the available Single DVD Entertainment System which ensures that your passengers will hear what they want to.
The USB Port hooks up virtually to any music player, including most cell phones, by plugging it directly into the USB port. To help keep the driver’s hands on the wheel, they can even control the music directly from their steering wheel. Everyone who rides on the Dodge Grand Caravan will feel comfortable with the available Three-Zone Automatic Temperature Control. It allows the driver, the front passenger, and the rear passengers, to set their ideal temperature levels.
Safety Features and Warranty
From the parking lot to the driveway, Dodge got your back. The Parkview Rear Back-Up Camera shifts into reverse, and it also offers a wide-angle view with on-screen gridlines of the area on the Uconnect Touchscreen. The all-speed traction control monitors for wheel slip. If wheel spin happens while driving, it will apply brake pressure to the slipping wheel(s), reducing the engine power to help maintain traction and vehicle stability.
The Dodge Grand Caravan has a lot of safety and security features to help protect the driver and their passengers. The foundation for the steel safety frame’s construction is built with high-strength steel, which contributes to the overall vehicle-impact performance.
The active front-seat head restraints move if the vehicle is in an accident to lessen the space and impact between the headrest and head to help reduce the risk of neck, head, or spine injuries. Seven advanced airbags come standards, such as driver-side knee blocker airbag, supplemental front, rear side-curtain airbags, and front seat-mounted side airbags. The Crumple Zone helps absorb the impact energy, and it redirects it away from the passengers to reduce the risk of injury.
Dodge comes with a 5-year/ 60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty for gas engines, transmission, and drive systems. The Basic Limited Warranty provides bumper-to-bumper coverage for 3-year/ 36,000-Miles. It’s also transferable, and it also includes towing. Most vehicles come with roadside assistance service with the 5-year/100,000-Mile. Service contracts are backed up by FCA US LLC. Also included are Mopar Parts & Accessories Limited Warranties which provide for a different time and mileage limitations and warranty coverage that is not covered in the Basic Limited Warranty.
