Accident Prevention

The Grand Caravan is offered with a variety of sophisticated safety technologies that help avoid accidents before they happen, including:

  • Blind Spot Monitoring: This important feature helps make lane changes safer by monitoring your blind spots and warning you if there is an obstacle or other vehicle in the way when you try to signal a lane change.
  • Rear Cross Path Detection: This sophisticated feature uses radar to detect vehicles in your path when you’re moving in reverse.
  • Parkview Rear Backup Camera: Every time you shift into reverse in a Grand Caravan equipped with this feature, you see a wide angle unobstructed view out the back via a camera displayed on the in-car screen. There are even gridlines to help you navigate into small spaces.
  • ParkSense Rear Park Assist: This feature provides a warning if you move to closely to an object behind you.

Passenger Protection

The 2016 Grand Caravan is equipped with a variety of important injury prevention features that help prevent or reduce the chances of injury, even in the event of a collision:

  • Air Bags: Seven airbags are arrayed around the cabin in an effort to eliminate injuries during an accident. These include front, front side, side curtain, and rear airbags, all of which are standard.
  • Active Head Restraints: Active Head Restraints in the front seats can help prevent neck or spinal injuries caused by a rear end collision.
  • Crumple Zones: The Grand Caravan is engineered with crumple zones that help prevent injuries in an accident by absorbing and distributing crash forces, and directing them away from the passenger compartment.
  • High-strength Steel: The passenger compartment is crafted from high strength steel to endure even serious crash forces intact, in order to protect all occupants from harm.
