The Dodge Grand Caravan is a seven-passenger minivan which comes in six trim levels: American Value Package (AVP), SE, SE Plus, SXT, SXT Plus and R/T. Standard features on the base AVP trim include heated mirrors, dual-zone air-conditioning, a second-row reclining/folding/removable bench seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, power locks, mirrors and front windows. Standard safety features include stability control, antilock disc brakes, active front head restraints, a driver knee airbag, front seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. It is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

“The original minivan, the Dodge Grand Caravan, remains the champ in 5-Year Cost to Own by essentially running the table on the key ownership cost attributes,” said Jack Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst. “It costs less to buy; it is less costly to maintain, and it depreciates less rapidly than its minivan competitors. Plus, it offers a variety of creature comforts unmatched by others in its segment.”
