What You Need to Know About the New Dodge Grand Caravan
How do you improve on the best-selling, most awarded minivan ever? Here’s the scoop on the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan.
Introducing the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan
The Dodge Grand Caravan has always delivered incredible bang-for-buck-one of the major reasons it’s earned its reputation as a best-seller and critical darling. That legacy of good value continues in 2016 with “Plus Packages” that combine popular options in affordable bundles. Here are five more buzzworthy features of the new Dodge Grand Caravan.
1. The award-winning engine.
The 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 engine at the heart of the Dodge Grand Caravan was named one of “Ward’s 10 Best Engines” three years in a row. No surprise, considering it delivers a best-in-class 283 horsepower, 260 lb.-ft. of torque, and best-in-class 3,600-lbs. towing. What’s more, it gives drivers the option to save at the pumps by driving in “fuel economizer” mode with the push of a button.
2. The new roof rack system.
The Grand Caravan’s new Stow ‘n Place roof rack is proof-should any be needed-that all roof racks are not made equal. Giving car owners the option to stow roof bows in the side rails when they’re not in use, it’s a super-aerodynamic design that cuts down on wind buffeting, and results in greater efficiency.
3. Black is back.
If you like your accent colours on the edgy side, you’ll love the Dodge Grand Caravan’s interior. The cloth seats? Black. The leather-wrapped steering wheel? Black. The headliner and overhead console? Black. It’s sleek and sexy, and-thanks to contrasting elements like silver accent stitching on the car seat covers-never dreary.
4. An easily convertible cabin.
The second- and third-row seats provide plenty of passenger room, but it’s not human cargo you’re carting around, the rear of the cabin easily converts into a class-leading storage space. Thanks to Dodge’s Stow ‘n Go technology, the second-row seats can fold away in under five seconds -with just one hand, to boot.
5. It’s made in Canada.
The 2016 Grand Caravan is proudly made at Dodge’s Windsor Assembly Plant in Windsor, Ontario!
