The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan Is Here - So Get It While You Can

 

 

Call it impressive, call it stylish, heck, call it a minivan - just don't call it boring.

The 2016 Dodge Caravan is nothing like the minivan we all remember taking to soccer practice as kids. Say goodbye to the bulky, unattractive mini-monster synonymous with stress and mess, and say hello to a whole new breed of family-friendly, fun-to-drive, versatile minivans.

If you're heading a growing family and are looking for the right vehicle to meet your needs but don't necessarily want to completely give up style to do so, the 2016 Dodge Caravan at Dodge dealerships in Miami now might just be the model for you.

 

This Doesn't Look Like Your Average Minivan

 

To say this year's Grand Caravan is "stylish" is a bit of an understatement - it's positively gorgeous. With a bold, muscular sculpted hood and a sleek front crosshair grille, this minivan has an intimidating presence on the road that's definitely unexpected for its class. Sleek 17-inch aluminum wheels and available power side and rear doors give this model a distinctively modern feel that is only complimented by its wide array of bright, colored paint options.

Quad halogen headlamps and LED brake lights give the Grand Caravan a defined profile for night driving while the standard tinted back windows keep the harsh sun out during the day. And for those really looking to step it up the Grand Caravan also comes in a special Blacktop appearance package, which includes premium black accents on the grille and headlamps, plus an updated all-black interior with silver accents and leather stitching. In that much style, you'll be turning heads as you drive down the street - for all the right reasons.

 

Ultimate Interior Comfort

 

As comfortable as you'll be knowing that your Grand Caravan is impressive on the outside, you'll be hard pressed not to notice how well-suited the interior is to luxurious driving on long and short trips.

First and foremost, this thing is seriously roomy - both in front and in back, with three rows of seating able to comfortably fit up to seven passengers. These feature standard cloth or available premium leather upholstery and plenty of personal amenities, like available personal LED reading lights or window sun screens. And for the driver, it's easy to keep an eye on everyone in back with a handily available observation mirror.

This model features a mind-boggling amount of storage space as well, from the super-useful driver's console with an available overhead personal storage bin and illuminated cup holders to the second- and third-row in-floor storage bins. These storage bins can also hold the rear seats, which stow easily in the floor, to open up an astounding total of 143 cubic feet of available storage space. The back row can also flip to face out the hatch for the perfect tailgate spot on the go.

Plus, you'll be able to control everything from opening the sliding doors to controlling the cabin climate with the push of a button from the dash. Plus, available Three-Zone Automatic Temperature Control for both front and rear seat passengers allows everyone to pick the setting that's right for them.

 

Enough Tech To Maintain Order Anywhere

 

We know how hard it can be getting the whole family from place to place - it's a delicate balancing act of keeping everybody entertained long enough to avoid those boredom tantrums and back-seat fights. Luckily, that's no problem whatsoever for the Grand Caravan to handle.

Most notably are the available entertainment systems, including the available single-screened DVD-based system or the dual-screened Blu-Ray system, a class-exclusive premium feature. These each come with wireless infrared headphones (two pairs!), a remote control, and plenty of USB ports to keep even the fiercest gamers powered for long trips. With these available systems, you can be sure everybody will be plenty entertained for the duration of the ride.

That means you'll be free to listen to your own music in peace through the available Sirius XM Satellite Radio without disturbing anyone else. Passengers can also connect to the available high-resolution 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system through a USB connection to play and stream music through mobile devices, and can access hands-free phone, radio, and navigation functions through the available Bluetooth connectivity feature.

With the available UConnect Navigation system, you can be sure you'll never be lost again - unless you want to be, in which case you can rely on UConect to get you back home safely at the end of the day. And since you can either type or voice-command this system, you can be as safe as possible on the road and still get to where you have to go.

 

Powerful Enough To Bring Where You Have To Go

 

Just because this model is spacious enough to haul a small house doesn't mean it isn't still a Dodge, with all of the performance and power you'd expect from a luxury performance brand. In fact, this minivan drives more like an SUV, with plenty of power to go around at your command.

With an amazing standard 3.6L Pentastar V6 Flex-Fuel engine, the 2016 Grand Caravan is able to achieve a best-in-class 283 horsepower and best-in-class 260 lb-ft of torque. This impressive block features dual Variable Valve Timing, which can monitor and adjust intake and exhaust valve timing to enhance combustion and bring a whopping 25 miles per gallon to this mighty minivan.

Although you might not expect it, this minivan has some serious towing power as well, boasting a towing capacity of 3,600 lbs and includes all-speed traction control and advanced trailer sway control to get you and your load to your destination safely.

And, with safety features like seven standard airbags through the cabin and available safety technology like blind spot monitoring, rear park assist, rear cross traffic alert, and a rear backup camera make getting in and out of tight or crowded spots a breeze - especially for a minivan.

This year's Grand Caravan is an amazing model - and we never thought we'd be saying that about a minivan. It's got everything a growing family could need to stay happy and organized while also keeping what the driver needs to feel comfortable and in control in his or her new vehicle.
