2018 Dodge Grand Caravan vs 2018 Honda Odyssey
Posted on March 10, 2020
At Caledon Chrysler, we know that an educated consumer is our best customer. That's why we work so hard to not only highlight the benefits of the vehicles we offer but why they are better than other brands on the market. This time around we thought we'd put our groundbreaking 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan minivan up against the 2018 Honda Odyssey. Let's take a closer look at why we believe you should be driving around the Greater Toronto Area in a Dodge Grand Caravan.
2018 Dodge Grand Caravan
This one-of-a-kind Dodge minivan from Caledon Chrysler is available in six bold exterior colours and four trim levels. The Dodge Grand Caravan is quite powerful thanks to the standard award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that produces 283 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 260 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,400 rpm. When combined with a six-speed Autostick transmission, drivers will be thrilled with fuel economy as low as 9.4 L/100 km.
To keep you and your family protected, the Dodge Grand Caravan offers more than 55 available safety and security features include standard front seat-mounted side airbags, a driver-side knee blocker airbag, three-row side-curtain airbags, electronic stability control, tire-pressure monitoring, daytime running lights, ABS brakes, and remote keyless entry. Depending on the trim, you can also add the Dodge Safety Sphere Package that features ParkSense rear park assist, Blind-spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross Path detection system.
Since it can be difficult to keep seven passengers comfortable and connected, the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan takes technology to the next level thanks to a whole host of the latest standard and available features including:
- 6.5-inch touchscreen radio with navigation
- Leather upholstery
- Heated front seats and second-row seats
- Second-row Stow 'n Go bucket seats
- Tri-zone automatic climate control
- Nine-speaker audio system with SiriusXM satellite radio
- Rear-seat entertainment system with DVD
The real surprise about the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan is its outstanding starting price of around $24,000! Once again Caledon Chrysler is giving you a lot more for your money.
2018 Honda Odyssey
The 2018 Honda Odyssey is without a doubt a popular and advanced minivan. Available in six trim levels and front wheel drive, it comes with a standard 3.5-litre 24-valve Direct Injection SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine that puts out 280 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 262 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,700 rpm. There is a nine-speed automatic transmission, which can help drivers 10.7 L/100 km combined. Other benefits of the 2018 Honda Odyssey include:
- Centre console storage with utility tray
- HandsFreeLink-bilingual Bluetooth wireless mobile phone interface
- 18-inch alloy wheels
- Four-wheel Anti-lock Braking System
- Lane Keeping Assist System
Perhaps the biggest drawback when it comes to the 2018 Honda Odyssey is its high starting price of $34,890. While it does have few extra bells and whistles, the $10,000 higher starting price does not help this minivan in a competition with the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan.
