New 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan at URSE Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM of Fairmont for Fairmont, WV
The Grand Caravan SXT has all the standards that last year's SXT Plus trim had but adds convenience with a remote starter and a security alarm. Also, the Grand Caravan GT model retains all the features of the previous year's R/T trim, then puts in the 'Driver Convenience Group & Navigation' package. The best-selling minivan in history is the Dodge Grand Caravan, never mind that it is also Dodge's most-awarded. The 2017 incarnation continues that legacy and keeps upping the ante with features like industry-exclusive Super Stow 'n Go seating, which functions to transform the interior from occupant seating to cargo space in seconds! There is a standard 6.5-inch touchscreen radio as standard and a ParkView rear backup camera on all 2017 trims.
Under the Grand Caravan's Hood
The 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan's 3.6-liter V6 engine has 283 horsepower @ 6,400 rpm to get to 260 pound-feet of torque @ 4,400 rpm, for all 4 trims. Power to the front wheels is overseen by a standard 6-speed automatic transmission, and all four wheels get ABS brakes. In Edmunds testing, a 2017 Grand Caravan went from motionless to 60 mph in 8 seconds. The fuel economy estimated by the EPA is 20 mpg combined (17 city/25 highway). An obtainable item on all trims is an engine block heater to assist in colder climates, and it also helps preserve the engine's life. A touring-tuned suspension, heavy-duty engine cooling, and an always-on fuel optimizer calibration setting are all installed as standard. On the front end, there are independent MacPherson struts, coil over gas-charged shock absorbers, and a stabilizer bar with an isolated suspension cradle. On the back end, the suspension is supported by a rear twist-beam axle with coil springs, a track bar, gas-charged shock absorbers (optional self-leveling shock absorbers). So, what we're getting to here with all of this mechanical information is that the 2017 Grand Caravan can also tow up to 3,600-lbs when the optional Trailer-tow Prep Package is added on.
Design of Dodge Grand Caravan
There are four Grand Caravan models for 2017: the GT, SE Plus, SE, and the SXT. The SE Plus expands on the features of the SE trim, then helps fuel economy with lighter alloy wheels. The SE Plus trim also has second-row captain's chairs, a supplemental floor console, rear-glass tinting, and strengthened upholstery. The SXT trim has roof rails, power sliding rear doors, a power liftgate, leather upholstery, fog-lights, a remote engine start, chrome exterior trim, and a power 8-way driver seat. The GT is ready to get in the game with performance-tuning as standard and builds onto the SXT trim items with a rearview camera, an 8-way power passenger seat, a single 115-volt household-esque outlet, leather seating, a 6.5-inch touchscreen display, and a nine-speaker sound system. The SE trim has a 6-speaker audio system (with a CD unit & an aux jack), power locks, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, 17-inch steel wheels, tri-zone climate control (with AC to the backseats too), power front-windows and mirrors, cruise control, heated mirrors, and a second-row bench seat with the Stow 'n Go.
