Advanced, Powerful, and fuel-efficient performance

2016 Dodge Grand Caravan Edmonton

One of the biggest strengths of the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is that despite the relatively poor performance of some of the other minivans in the market, it has continued to sustain and sometimes even grow its user-base. It might not be the best-looking vehicle money can buy but what it does, better than any other vehicle in its price range, is that it delivers on everything families actually care about and want from a minivan. This is, and has always been, the reason behind the success of the Dodge Grand Caravan. Edmonton citizens love the Grand Caravan for this particular reason.

The brilliance of the Grand Caravan can be seen, not in the abstracts, but in some of the specific features it offers. And that includes the exceptionally modest price which can sometimes be thousands of dollars cheaper than some of its competitors. It includes the mighty 3.6-liter, 283-horsepower, six-cylinder, V6 engine which is not just one of but the best engine in its class. It also includes the magnificent Stow ‘N Go seating arrangement which makes it a beloved choice for families across Canada.

But these features are just the tip of the iceberg. Let’s dig in deep to analyze what the Dodge Grand Caravan is actually packing underneath. Here’s an overview of some of its best features.

The Engine

Much of the Grand Caravan’s strength comes from its incredibly powerful six-cylindered glorious V6. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine can take care of all your hauling needs, whether it’s passengers or cargo, without so much as a hiccup. It delivers instant, rip-roaring energy, an exceptionally smooth drive, and a commendable fuel economy compared to some of the other vehicles in its price range.

You can feel the power and performance ability of the V6 engine in your hands as you hold the steering wheel and in your feet as you push down hard on the accelerator. And this is a minivan we’re talking about, the kind of vehicle which is notorious for its somewhat bland driving experience. Whatever your issues with a minivan’s driving ability might be, you can easily overcome them with the Dodge Caravan’s powerful pickup, smooth drive, and strong brakes.

And it is due to the strength of the engine that you can haul not just a vehicle full of passengers and their stuff, but also an additional 3,600 pounds. Now that’s what we call power. The suspension does a good job of ensuring a comfortable journey no matter what the haul is.

The V6 engine is seamlessly paired with a 6-speed auto transmission. And the winning combination is responsible for an enjoyable ride. The engine’s power is augmented by the 6-speeds incredibly smooth shift action. The engine is also E85-compatible which means you can run it on high-level ethanol-gasoline blends.

The Exterior

With the 2016 models, Dodge has done what many previous Grand Caravan models do best. It has kept it simple. Instead of experimenting with the exterior elements and tinkering with the look too much, they have let the superior functionality of the vehicle do the most of the talking.

The most notable feature in any minivans—the sliding doors—are now presented with power-sliding mechanisms. With five available wheel types, you have plenty of options to choose from. Whether its steel rims or aluminum, you can make sure your vehicle looks its best at all times.

In addition to the Stow ‘N Go seating system, you also have the Stow ‘N Place roof rack. This means that, if you don’t want it, you can simply fold the crossbars into the side rails. It’s not only incredibly convenient, but it also helps make the vehicle much more aerodynamic. And who can forget the iconic Dodge crosshair grille that displays the vehicle’s identity front and center?

The interior

Without a doubt, the most stellar feature of the Grand Caravan’s interior is its second-row Stow ‘N Go seats. Want to carry some luggage? Need some space in the van? With the Stow ‘N Go feature, you don’t even have to remove the heavy seats. All you need to do is to fold the seats into the floor. And when you don’t stow away the seats in the floor space, you can fit in other luggage in there.

Apart from the Stow ‘N Go feature, the seats themselves are extremely comfortable with lots of legroom. The entertainment system is par excellence with not one but two rear video screens. It’s some of these features that set the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan apart from some of its competition.

The Equipment

When the top feature of a family-friendly vehicle is practicality, you can expect a lot of awesome features and options to go with it. And the Dodge Grand Caravan absolutely doesn’t disappoint. Some of the standard features on the basic trim—the Grand Caravan AVP—include 17-inch wheels and a tilt/telescope steering wheel to control those. Apart from that, you have the power locks, power windows, front/back air conditioning, and keyless entry. The controls for the audio system are mounted on the steering wheel for convenience and you can find storage bins underneath the second-row seats that can come in extremely handy. For safety, you have front and side seat airbags.

The amazing thing with the Grand Caravan is that even as you move towards higher trim levels, it’s still affordable. So, you can get many of the amazing optional features without a major hit on your wallet. These are features like the 3-zone auto climate control and the Uconnect infotainment system’s Bluetooth voice command. You can also get the tinted glasses, second-row power windows, power sliding doors, and a power liftgate.
