Overview Information

Chrysler has methodically improved their minivans to ensure that they remain competitive with popular alternatives from Honda and Toyota. All Grand Caravan models now equip a 3.6l V-6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission, which has greatly simplified the model lineup. The Grand Caravan lineup starts with the AVP (American Value Package) budget model, ranging up to the top R/T trim level.

While the storage bins are handy, the seats are undersized and lack the flexibility of 2 and 3 passenger second row seating options from Toyota and Honda. The third row seat folds flat in the rear storage well, but also features an intermediate rear-facing tailgating position. The EPA estimates fuel economy at 17 / 25 (city / highway) which is a bit low for the segment.

This makes the Town & Country a much better value.
