There are a lot of family cars on the market but most of these can only accommodate up to 5 passengers in good comfort or 7 without so much comfort. The 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan will address that issue by offering enough space for seven people or more and their luggage in perfect comfort.
Review of new 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan
The car is bigger than the normal family hatchback but this is the main reason why it is able to carry so much.
It has been around for quite some time already so it had enough time to solve any issues that could had surfaced throughout its production.
The current model is going to be a slightly bigger version with more room inside, better looks thanks to improvements to the front and rear of the car. These include new headlights with LED for the daytime running lights, BiXenon as standard on the mid-range model and a totally new grille that gives it a certain appeal.
The back of the car also has been changed to further increase its appeal. It now features a dual exhaust system, LED tail lights and also a new bumper that is more inline with the car.
Engine wise it will boast the same 3.6 liter V6 that is found on other Dodge models. This can provide up to 260 lb-ft of torque and as much as 283 horsepower which is quite good but when you take into account that the car weighs quite a lot this engines doesn’t seem as powerful. Rumors say that it will probably get a new 3 liter diesel in the near future that should solve some of its problems with the fuel consumption and the insufficient torque.
Unfortunately there is only a single transmission available for this model and that is a 6 speed automatic gearbox that is coupled to the front wheels. There might be a chance that in the near future the car will also get four wheel drive and a different 8 speed gearbox that should be much smoother and also easier to use.
On the inside of the 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan you will see minor improvements done to the general feel of the interior. The car has now better materials that fall in line with the rest of its competitors and also more equipment as standard. For example it now comes with climate control, satellite navigation and a premium audio system as standard features on the mid-range model. The top of the range also gets a fully leather interior, electric seats and rear view camera.
Price for this new model will be around 22.000$ for the base car which is quite good considering what you get and as much as 34.000$ for the top of the range model. It is expected to be available for sale starting with the end of this year!
