Dodge has reduced their model lineups for 2018 to give consumers easier options to choose from based on their needs as well as their wants. With only three trims to choose from - SE, SE Plus, and SXT, consumers need not worry about the powertrain. Every trim is powered by a 283-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine optimized by variable valve training (VVT) technology for better performance and fuel efficiency. In addition to producing 283-horsepower, the 3.6L engine is able to produce 260 lb-ft of torque.
Driving and Handling
Each trim is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. Because the powertrains are all the same, every 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan has a fuel economy of 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. With 260 lb-ft of torque, consumers can tow up to 3,600 pounds with this minivan.
With three trims making up the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan lineup, exterior features vary among the trims. The standard features include a sliding driver and passenger-side door with fixed glass, heated exterior mirrors, and a rear window wiper. For adding extra cargo capability, side roof rails and integrated roof rail crossbars are optional for all three trims (cross bars standard on SXT). Convenient features like automatic headlamps can be found on the Grand Caravan SE Plus and SXT trims, along with the option to install door sill guards made by Mopar. Splash guards by Mopar are an option on all trims for those of you who like to get a little dirty. All trims ride on a variety of 17-inch wheels.
The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan is known for its various seating options and arrangements. Standard in all trims is a stow ‘n go third-row; a 60/40 split bench can be found in the Grand Caravan SE and SE Plus trims, whereas a third-row tailgate seat can be found in the Grand Caravan SXT trim. Some standard convenient features include triple-zone manual temperature control, sunscreen glass, and easy clean floor mats. The option to get second-row bucket fold-in-floor seating is optional on the Grand Caravan SE and SE Plus trims, standard on the Grand Caravan SXT trim; this opens up more cargo storage options, with the third row still open for seating.
Standard on the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan is a six-speaker sound system, a 6.5-inch touchscreen display powering Radio 430, and steering wheel-mounted controls. Bluetooth streaming audio and Uconnect voice command with Bluetooth are optional on the Grand Caravan SE, standard on the Grand Caravan SE Plus and SXT trims. Additional entertainment options are available for all trims, including a second-row overhead 90-inch VGA video screen, a second-row overhead DVD console, or single DVD entertainment center - all with the option of wireless headphones.
