2019 Dodge Grand Caravan: Which Trim Level Is Best for You?
Posted on July 31, 2020
For buyers who need a vehicle to ferry around up to seven people and all their cargo in some comfort, but without breaking the bank, the 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan is a great option. Let's take a look at this latest version of the vehicle that effectively invented the minivan segment 35 years ago has to offer today.
2019 Dodge Grand Caravan Trim levels
There doesn't tend to be a massive amount of trim level options for buyers to choose from in the family minivan segment as a whole, but here in Canada Dodge spoils us with no less than eight different versions of the Dodge Grand Caravan. The aptly named Canada Value Package (CVP) kicks off the range with an attractive starting price of just $25,195. After the CVP, the range then progresses through SE Plus, SXT, SXT Plus, SXT Premium Plus, Crew and Crew Plus until the range tops out with the impressive Grand Caravan GT.
Under the hood
A vehicle designed to carry seven people and their belongings isn't going to get away with a tiny engine, and Dodge is a brand which knows a thing or two about powerful powerplants. Under the hood of every version of the Grand Caravan is a tried and tested FCA 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 developing 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. This considerable amount of power is sent to the Grand Caravan's rear wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission, and it propels this versatile vehicle with some authority and it's also impressively quiet too.
2019 Dodge Grand Caravan Interior Features
Regardless of how a minivan looks on the outside or how much power it has under the hood, it's the interior which really matters to its majority of buyers. Despite being the originator all those years ago, the Grand Caravan is still one of the most flexible and capable of all family haulers. In the front there's a pleasingly high seating position for excellent outward visibility, and seats with plenty of adjustment. Throughout the cabin there's a good amount of leg, head and cargo room, lots of storage and cubbies, and the flexibility of the seating is amazing for anyone unfamiliar with the minivan format. There are more luxurious minivans out there, but not at anywhere near as affordable a price as the Dodge.
Features and equipment
Even the attractively priced Grand Caravan CVP comes with standard air conditioning, power front windows, 3rd-row Stow 'n Go seating and class-exclusive tailgate seating. The SE Plus then adds 17-inch alloy wheels, all-round power windows and deep-tint sunscreen glass, and then the SXT further adds Stow 'n Go seats in the 2nd and 3rd-rows and a Stow 'n Place roof rack system. At the top of the trim level spectrum, the Grand Caravan GT gets such luxuries as a 9-speaker 506-watt audio system, automatic headlamps, a performance suspension setup, heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, tri-zone climate control and plenty more besides.
