Dodge Caravan Summary

The Dodge Caravan has a long history of affordability and easy maneuvering. While it continues to be a popular name in cost-friendly minivans, it passed the baton to the Dodge Grand Caravan in 2007, its final manufacturing year. Despite its size, the Dodge Caravan is a relatively smooth and easy ride, and with five back seats that deliver tons of extra space when stowed, this minivan doubles as a dependable transport vehicle. For both its versatility and thrifty price tag, the Dodge Caravan is a great vehicle.
