Over the years, minivans have garnered a reputation for being practical people-movers ideal for families with lots of kids and cargo. That perception is well-deserved and is embodied in the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan. Dodge’s acclaimed minivan shows why it’s a leader in its segment with its unrivaled level of utility.
Selecting the version for you
The 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan is offered at four different trim levels: SE, SE Plus, SXT and GT. Each configuration adds an array of useful exterior and interior features that improve the driving and riding experience.
Each of the four variants comes with a hefty 3.6-liter V6 engine designed to handle the weight of your family and their gear. It outputs up to 283 horsepower when needed while maintaining an average 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.* You can travel quite far at that rate thanks to the vehicle’s 20-gallon fuel tank.
All the space you need
Being a minivan, the 2017 Grand Caravan boasts a spacious interior that can be configured to your family’s needs. This seven-passenger vehicle includes second-row bench seating and third-row Stow ‘n Go® seating in its entry-level form, but that can be upgraded to second- and third-row Stow ‘n Go® with third-row tailgate seats.
Those three rows of seats are quite spacious, with leg room extending 32.7 inches in the back seat and shoulder room measuring 62 inches. That seating area can be converted to extra storage room if needed, expanding cargo volume from 33 square feet to a whopping 143.8 square feet.
Features here, there and everywhere
Utility is more than just size and strength, so Dodge equipped the 2017 Grand Caravan with an array of tools to assist in your travels. In addition to tech features like the ParkView™ rear back-up camera and keyless entry, this minivan is filled with smart enhancements like storage bins, grocery bag hooks, front and rear power outlets and optional adjustable reading lamps. The roof can even be equipped with supportive rails and crossbars.
For a versatile, reliable family vehicle, there’s no better choice than the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan.
