The Dodge Grand Caravan is a family minivan most of us will be familiar with because we have so many of them on our roads, and there's a good reason why it's as popular as it is, which is because it's such a great value minivan. What you may not be aware of is the fact this model is particularly great value for money here in Canada, and that's because we have our very own Dodge Grand Caravan Canada Value Package (CVP) trim level. If you're in the market for a new minivan for your family, here's what you get for very little money with the 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan Canada Value Package.
Just because this is the entry point to the Grand Caravan range here in Canada it doesn't mean you have to put up with some sort of small, underpowered engine that's not quite up to the job of hauling up to seven people and all their cargo. The CVP version of the Grand Caravan gets the same powerful engine as the rest of the lineup, which is an impressive 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 that develops 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. As well as having all the power you need, this excellent powerplant is also smooth and quiet while it sends its power to the front wheels through a standard six-speed automatic transmission.
As well as being affordable to purchase, the Dodge minivan is pretty good on gas too for a large vehicle with a powerful V-6 that's designed to carry a lot of weight. The Grand Caravan is rated at 13.7L/100 km in the city and 9.4L/100 km on the highway, which is good for this package.
Features and equipment
Obviously, as a value-focused entry model, the CVP isn't going to get you Nappa leather upholstery and a premium infotainment system with navigation, but it certainly delivers the basics you need and expect from a versatile family vehicle. Standard features include a luxury steering wheel with audio and cruise controls, Radio 130 multimedia centre with four speakers, air conditioning with front dual-zone manual temperature control and air filtering, power front windows, power locks, and three 12-volt auxiliary power outlets.
Safety features will be an area of interest for every family on the move, and the Grand Caravan has more than just the basics. Standard safety features include advanced multistage driver and front passenger, driver's knee blocker, supplemental front-seat-mounted side and all-row side curtain airbags; Electronic Stability Control with All-Speed Traction Control and Trailer Sway Control; ABS brakes with Brake Assist; remote keyless entry and a ParkView Rear Backup Camera.
Front seat passengers get plenty of legroom and headroom, a high seating position, and good levels out outward visibility and seat adjustment. The second-row is a bench seat that easily accommodates three people, and the two seats in the third-row fold away completely to make more room for cargo when not in use.
