2016 Dodge Grand Caravan: Which Trim Level Is Best For You?

2016 Dodge Grand Caravan: Which Trim Level Is Best For You?

The 2016 Dodge Caravan inherits the title of best-selling minivan in Canada. There are many editions and several packages, making it fun for families to find the one that will serve them best. If you have a favorite model, but it is missing a favorite option, you may find that it is offered in a package or a standalone feature at your local Dodge Dealer.


2016 Dodge Caravan: Canada Value Package

If your family needs a minivan, but your budget is tight, the Canada Value Package is a great way to economize and still get what you need. Truly packing value, the CVP starts you out right with power-heated mirrors and quad halogen headlamps. Five colour choices come dressed with a black grille with bright crosshairs. Sliding doors make it easy to enter from either side. The interior has a second-row bench seat and a third-row Stow 'n Go seat. This split-fold bench also offers tailgate seating. Storage includes a dual-level glove compartment. Safety is assured by seven airbags and active front head restraints. Many seats are equipped with the LATCH child seat anchor system. The engine is a powerful Pentastar V-6. This 3.6-liter powertrain cranks out 383 horsepower. It can tow 1,632 kg, and yet it earns 9.4L/100KM on the highway.


2016 Dodge Caravan: SXT


If you haul cargo as much as you haul the kids, you'll want to try out the SXT model. The Super Stow 'n Go seating adds a simple second-row device that lets you fold the centre chairs into the floor. When they aren't folded, there are deep storage bins. There are 81 configurations to allow you to organize and transport your family's gear as well as your family. This edition adds a Stow N Place Roof Rack, a great way to take extra items including your skis. When you aren't using the rack, the crossbars can be stowed in the side rails. This reduces wind resistance and wind noise. This, in turn, improves fuel efficiency. Other SXT features include easy-clean floor mats and deep sunscreen glass.

2016 Dodge Caravan: SXT Plus

If you like the SXT, but you want a bit more, the SXT Plus is a logical pick. Moving up to this edition allows you to choose the dash multimedia centre for your entertainment. It also lets you option a DVD player with a single screen for the children's entertainment. Parents and kids will appreciate power windows on the second row and quarter-vented power windows on the third row. There's a helpful floor console with cup holders and a luxury steering wheel with duplicate audio controls. Adding some pizazz to the exterior, the SRT Plus sports 17-inch Granite Crystal aluminum wheels and a body-colour sill applique.


2016 Dodge Caravan: SXT Premium Plus

Fashionistas may be looking for a special look that defies minivan conventions. For that, the Premium Plus may be the answer. The leatherette seats are Black Torino with suede inserts. These are complemented by a black headliner and black piano accents. Storage includes the Caravan's Super Console and an overhead console. The driver enjoys a 10-way power seat. The exterior is dressed with chrome belt mouldings, and it has the Stow n Place roof rails. This edition also makes it possible for you to get a power liftgate and power sliding doors.

2016 Dodge Caravan: Blacktop Appearance Package

If the Premium Plus doesn't suit your fashion sense, then the Blacktop Appearance Package might. With an emphasis on black enhancements, this takes the SXT in yet another direction. There are gloss black pockets on the aluminum wheels. The grille is gloss black, and the headlamps sport a black surround. Other elements include the rear fascia scuff pad and a body-colour sill applique. The interior also goes black but adds silver stitching and brushed aluminum trim.

2016 Dodge Caravan: Crew

The Crew strikes a nice balance for the typical Canadian family. To beat the cold, the Crew adds a tri-zone automatic temperature control system and heated front seats. Drivers also will appreciate an electronic vehicle information centre. This edition includes the super console and illuminated front-door storage. The available Safety Sphere package adds automatic headlights and rain-sensing windshield wipers. It also comes with a blind spot monitor that doubles as a rear cross-path warning system. For a dressier exterior look, the Stow N Place Roof Rack and mouldings are dressed in chrome.

2016 Dodge Caravan: Crew Plus

The Crew Plus is a favorite choice of families with young children. It's just so easy to access with its power liftgate and its dual power-slide doors. Even the youngest kids can open the doors themselves, and you can assess the hold while holding your baby in your arms. For long winter nights, there's ambient lighting to soothe troubled children. The front seats are heated, and all seats are covered in leather. Standard dash tech includes the Radio 430 multimedia centre and a one-year subscription to SiriusXM. The ParkView back-up camera makes it easier to handle reverse maneuvers. The Crew Plus also lets shoppers choose a DVD/Blu-ray player with two rear entertainment screens.

2016 Dodge Caravan: R/T

For the absolute maximum in luxurious features, the R/T may be for you. The 506-watt audio system boasts nine amplified speakers. Not only are the front seats heated, but the steering wheel and second row cushions are heated as well. The R/T Safety Sphere package includes Park-Sense Rear Park Assist. The R/T also offers a choice of single- or dual-screen back-row entertainment centres.
