Exterior, style, and performance
Grand Caravan stays true to the theme of the boxy styling that is worn for most of his life, save the model years 1996-2007. We loved the egg-shaped Van, but a line of space-saving, the functional car today pays dividends in the bright, airy interior. This slab-sided and relatively plain compared to the Odyssey and Sienna nosed lightning streaked low, but Grand Caravan emphasizes upper glass sheet metal, affording an excellent outside visibility.

Our main complaint is that Dodge upper limit per series of small bumps; damping really should and can do better. Grand Caravan earns EPA rating of 17 mpg city, 25 highway, and 20 are combined, which is on pace with offerings from Toyota and Nissan but behind the Honda Odyssey.
