Aren’t tailgating parties fun? And no, for those that were previously unaware, it’s not a party where a bunch of cars tailgate one another like ants. A tailgate party is actually a social event that takes place usually before or after a game of sports, like football, in or around the stadium or arena where the game takes place. Many people will park in one location, usually around a main center area where people will set up grills for barbecue, provide alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and whatever else to add to the good times. Most consumers may think a truck or an SUV is the perfect solution, especially with the RamBox Cargo Management System, but when it comes to big parties, minivans might work just as well.
Tailgating With the Dodge Grand Caravan
Yes, it’s a minivan, but the Dodge Grand Caravan was practically made for tailgating. Mainly, we’re talking about the Grand Caravan SXT trim, with a starting MSRP of $31,750* that has the third row Stow ‘n Go tailgate seats. Yeah, that’s right – the second row and third row Stow ‘n Go seats may be standard across the lineup, but the 60/40 Stow ‘n Go split-bench double as tailgate seats in the Grand Caravan SXT. Simply flip the seats back, and that’s two front-row seats to the tailgate party.
Then there’s food, beverages, and party favors. Where can we keep all of this stuff? Depending on the party guests, thanks to the Stow ‘n Go seats that also double as split-benches, we can load up one or both sides of the Dodge Grand Caravan. With the second and third-rows stowed away, a total of 140 cubic-feet of free space opens up. That’s enough for a cooler or two, some sports gear and party favors, even a stereo for sick beats if looking to provide some music without draining the car battery.
There are also several bins to store items in the front seat as well as Super Stow ‘n Go bins throughout the cabin. These class-exclusive features are an ingenious option consumers can utilize when the second and/or third-row seats are in-use. If the seats are up, the bins they use when stowed away in the floor are still available, able to store items in 12 cubic-feet of hidden storage space. Keep items secure, or fill the bin with some bagged ice to act as a cooler.
If worried about keeping younger passengers entertained, the Dodge Grand Caravan also comes with many technology options to keep unoccupied minds busy. Consumers can opt-in for Bluetooth streaming audio, a high definition multimedia interface that allows for the connection of gaming devices, a second-row overhead 9-inch VGA video screen, a second-row overhead DVD console, a single DVD entertainment system, and wireless headphones are all available features found throughout the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan lineup.
What more could a tailgate party goer want? And this is just a tailgate party we’re talking about. Think of all the good use the above features can do if used for school, work, excursions to the beach, long road trips, etc. You can find your own Dodge Grand Caravan or other tailgate party vehicle at Miami Lakes Automall today.
