Dodge Grand Caravan Models and Grand Caravan History

Introduced as one of Chrysler Corporations influential minivan line during the 1984 model year, the Grand Caravan was a long wheelbase variant of the base Caravan. For the 2006 model year, the Dodge Grand Caravan was reaching the end of its fourth styling incarnation.


The minivan was freshened in 2005 with a revised front-end appearance. Providing only SE and SXT trim levels choices, the 2006 Grand Caravan was equipped to comfortably move up to seven passengers or as much as 167.9 cubic feet of cargo room.



Stow n Go second and third row seating (standard on the Grand Caravan SXT and optional on the SE model) allowed the rear passenger area to fold flat with the floor. Equipped with standard four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock braking system and air conditioning, the 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan SE model was standard equipped with a 3.3-liter V-6 engine generating 180 horsepower.



The base engine was also offered as a flex fuel compatible version. Featuring a richer assortment of standard features such as multi-zone air conditioning, keyless entry, power windows and 16-inch aluminum wheels, the Grand Caravan SXT was powered by a 210-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 engine. A modernized version of the Dodge Grand Caravan debuted in 2008 adding the choice of a 251-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 powerplant and a six-speed automatic transmission. Featuring up to 256 possible seating and storage options inside, the 2008 Grand Caravan included optional Swivel n Go seating. With the introduction of the fifth-generation design of Dodges minivan, the brand eliminated the smaller wheelbase Caravan leaving the Grand Caravan as the only body length.



Starting in 2011, the Dodge Grand Caravans propulsion came exclusively a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine. The 2015 model year is set to be the final year of production for the Dodge Grand Caravan.
