If you’re searching for a new minivan for your family, then you’ll want to consider the Caravan — it offers a compelling blend of versatility, efficiency, performance, and safety. Find out more about the performance specs of the Grand Caravan below.

Dodge Caravan Performance

Every Dodge Grand Caravan comes standard with a sophisticated 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine. Using a dual overhead cam, high flow intake, and Variable Valve Timing and Electronic Throttle control, this engine creates a best-in-class 283 hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine teams up with a six-speed Auto/Stick™ transmission that can conveniently operate in either manual or automatic modes depending on your preference.

This powertrain is also exceptional when it comes to fuel economy. In the newest government 5-cycle test, which even accounts for cold weather operation, air-conditioning use, and high speed driving, the Grand Caravan achieved up to 9.4L/100km on the highway or up to 13.7L/100km in the city. The Grand Caravan even comes standard with a driver selectable fuel economizer mode that lets you maximize fuel economy with the push of a button by altering powertrain characteristics to squeeze every last kilometer out of every liter of fuel. To top it all off, the Grand Caravan is able to tow up to 1,633 kg, which puts it among the best in the minivan class when it comes to towing capability.

Other Highlights

Powertrain performance isn’t the only appeal of the Grand Caravan. It can also seat up to eight passengers in comfort, and pack plenty of cargo. It can be equipped with the latest uConnect infotainment systems with smartphone integration. It can even be equipped with sophisticated safety features such as a blind spot monitoring system, and a wide-angle rearview camera.
