If there's a family minivan out there that most of us will be familiar with, it's probably going to be the Dodge Grand Caravan. The reason we see as many of them on our roads as we do and why it's continually popular is probably because it's such a great value minivan. Here in Canada, we're especially lucky because we have our very own Dodge Grand Caravan Canada Value Package (CVP) trim level, and it's a great choice for large families buying on a budget. If that sounds like you, here's what you get with the 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan Canada ValuePackage.





Despite this model being the entry point to the Grand Caravan range here in Canada, buyers are not getting short-changed in any way in the engine department with this great value model. The Canada Value Package, or CVP, comes standard with the same powerful engine as the rest of the Grand Caravan lineup. The powerplant in question is a tried and tested 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 producing 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, which sends its power to the front wheels through a solid six-speed automatic transmission. As well as plenty of power, this impressive engine also turns out to be smooth, quiet and very refined.


Fuel economy

We've established the Grand Caravan CVP is affordable to buy, in fact, it currently costs from just $25,445, but it's also reasonably good on gas too for such a large, capable and versatile vehicle with a V-6 under the hood. The Grand Caravan is rated by the EPA at 13.7L/100 km in the city and 9.4L/100 km on the highway, perfect for a seven-seat family hauler.


Features and equipment

Nobody is going to expect perforated leather upholstery, a premium infotainment system with navigation, and air-conditioned seats in such a value-focused model as the CVP, but it certainly delivers the basics and more. Included with the CVP in its standard form are a luxury steering wheel with controls for the audio and cruise control, a four-speaker Radio 130 multimedia centre, dual-zone air conditioning, power locks and front windows, three 12-volt auxiliary power outlets, and class-exclusive tailgate seating.



Safety features are definitely an important factor for a family vehicle like this, and the Grand Caravan comes with a good level of standard safety features. The CVP trim level comes standard with advanced multistage driver, front passenger, driver's knee blocker, supplemental front-seat-mounted side, and all-row side curtain airbags; Electronic Stability Control, Speed Traction Control and Trailer Sway Control. The CVP also features ABS brakes with Brake Assist all around, remote keyless entry, and even a ParkView Rear Backup Camera.



There's plenty of legroom and headroom for those in the front, as well as a high seating position, good levels out outward visibility, and a decent amount of seat adjustment. The second-row bench comfortably accommodates up to three people, and the third-row's two seats fold away for extra cargo space when they're not required.
