Dodge Grand Caravan might be discontinued for the next year. From what we heard, the 2021 Dodge Grand Caravan could be the last model from this manufacturer. If you didn’t know, the first generation of this famous minivan was launched in the year 1983, and it has been on the market for almost three decades now.
The new Dodge Grand Caravan looks robust and it provides plenty of equipment. Besides, its cabin is spacious and it includes plenty of soft touches. Unfortunately, like the current model, we heard that the new one would provide the same engine options. The current model uses a 3.6-liter V6, which is assembled in Trenton, Michigan.
2021 Dodge Grand Caravan Design and Trims
The exterior of Dodge Grand Caravan has always been stylish and far more unadorned than Pacifica and Voyager siblings. This minivan has recognized on the road thanks to its familiar cross-hair grille. The side profile is somehow refreshed and the new Grand Caravan wears more stylish 17-inch wheels.
There are plenty of customization options. For example, going for trims like SE and SE Plus, buyers will get a manual-sliding side door and a manual tailgate. However, going for upper trim SXT, side doors are power-operated. The Blacktop Package is also available and is optional on the SE Plus and SXT. This package makes this model more aggressive with black wheels and other dark styling elements.
The cabin of 2021 Dodge Grand Caravan will pretty remain the same as before. Of course, some small notable refreshments are visible. This minivan is equipped with either a 2-seat middle-row bench or a pair of optional Stow ’n Go bucket seats. Generally, Dodge Grand Caravan, throughout three rows of seats, can comfortably place seven occupants. However, many rivals in the same segment provide seating for eight. A big plus of Grand Caravan is that cargo room behind the rear seat is one of the specious. Basically, one can 60/40-split rear bench that folds into the floor, opening a huge cargo room.
This Dodge minivan’s interior includes on the base SE a brand-new 6.5-inch touch screen and a 6-speaker stereo. However, buyers who choose an SEL Plus trim will benefit from an upgraded interior fabric. As for the interior colors, the only options is black or gray.
