Why the Dodge Grand Caravan is Perfect as a Rideshare Car
Carpooling is _ so _ old school, amiright? Wrong. For over 30 years, the Dodge Grand Caravan has made carpooling easier and better with every new generation. From soccer games to family outings, the Dodge Grand Caravan continues to be the perfect rideshare car. Let us explore why.
Let’s start with the obvious. The 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan seats up to seven people comfortably. The inside is roomy and versatile. Take a look at this picture, and tell us it doesn’t look spacious.
Versatility is a big selling point for the Grand Caravan; returning with available Stow ‘n Go seating, cargo space and storage are available in a number of configurations.
Then comes technology. The 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan is filled with wireless connectivity and multimedia systems. An available single DVD Entertainment System is a nice option and can turn any long trip into a quiet one with wireless headphones. Speaking of headphones, the Grand Caravan comes with selective hearing capability so passengers can pick the music they listen to. With over 130 channels on SiriusXM there are plenty of choices.
Under the hood of the Dodge Grand Caravan is a 283-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar engine. Drivers can get up to 25 mpg on the highway, and with 260 lb-ft of torque, they can put the minivan to work and tow up to 2,600 pounds. Plus with trailer sway control, don’t worry about your cargo swinging into other lanes.
Lastly, how does the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan protect all of its passengers? Upon impact in the event of a crash, the first line of defense is the Grand Caravan’s high-strength steel frame, designed with front and rear crumple zones to absorb impact energy and redirect it away from passengers. Past that, active head restraints reduce head, neck, and spine injuries, and seven advanced multistage airbags located around the vehicle will deploy to reduce the chance of fatal injury. Along with available advanced safety systems such as rear cross path detection, blind spot monitoring, the ParkView rear back up camera, and ParkSense rear park assist, you can also play your part in keeping your passengers safe.
