2018 Dodge Caravan Redesign, Price and Review

Sponsored Links

Reluctant to say goodbye to its family-hauling icon, Dodge has decided to continue offering the Grand Caravan for 2018 even though it is badly outclassed by both its rivals and its corporate sibling, the Chrysler Pacifica. As the least expensive new minivan on the market, the Grand Caravan has a single selling point: thrift. Its low-rent interior offers space for seven or eight passengers, and its cargo capacity is good, but buyers in the market for a high-tech infotainment package or a suite of active safety features should look elsewhere. You get what you pay for, and the Grand Caravan is a clearance-rack stalwart.

What’s New for 2018?

The only change to Dodge’s venerable Grand Caravan for 2018 is the introduction of a new color. Much to the delight of the Wolverine fans here at C/D’s offices in Ann Arbor, Michigan, it’s named IndiGo Blue.

What Was New for 2017?

Few things changed for the Grand Caravan for 2017. The biggest revision was a reduction in trim levels, from six to four: SE, SE Plus, SXT, and GT. All trim levels were enhanced with a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a backup camera, while SE Plus models got Dodge’s popular Blacktop appearance package (17-inch aluminum wheels, black exterior detailing, and an all-black interior) as standard fare.

Trims and Options We Chose for 2017

While other minivans focus on luxury—Chrysler’s Pacifica can crest the $49,000 mark when fully equipped—the Grand Caravan sells on value. A fully spec’d GT model will struggle to hit $40,000 with every conceivable accessory included. It’s the value van, and as such we’d take it a step further and select the midrange SE Plus trim. It adds plenty of features versus the base SE, among them:

• Second-row captain’s chairs
• Bluetooth phone and streaming audio
• Aluminum wheels

Our selected Grand Caravan starts at $29,790, saving us $20,000 compared with a loaded Pacifica. That extra cash might be better allocated to college savings plans for the occupants of the second and third rows.

The 2018 Dodge Caravan offers outstanding style and technology both inside and out.
