Be that as it may, this thing is ruler of significant worth in family transportation thanks in vast part to a section level Canada Value Package that rundowns for just shy of $29,000 however regularly offers for not as much as that because of motivating forces.
Hence, the Grand Caravan keeps on driving the route in minivan deals in Canada, yet its future is in danger. While it helpfully surpasses the Pacifica (nee Town and Country) in Canada, the Grand Caravan appreciates far less prevalence in the U.S., and that is the reason there’s a gleaming new Chrysler van, yet no Dodge model to coordinate.
So for 2019, all that is in reality new is a GT trim to supplant a year ago’s R/T demonstrate, which picks up a monochromatic outside treatment and all-dark inside with red sewing all the while.

2019 Dodge Grand Caravan – Design
Presently in its fifth era, the Caravan has seen a lot of changes, however none modify its center mission of transporting individuals and their stuff—and a great deal of each. Avoid rearranged the accessible trim levels for 2019, dispensing with the R/T display and the American Value bundle, so the lineup now stacks up as SE, SE Plus, SXT, and GT, in rising request. Our test illustration was a GT.
The 2019 Grand Caravan has three columns of seats to suit seven individuals. Material upholstery and a moment push seat and third-push Stow ‘n Go seats are standard. The driver and front traveler have a high seating position, giving them a charging perspective of the street ahead.

Inquisitively, the $1495 Safety Sphere Group (blind side cautioning, raise cross-way identification, and back stopping help) isn’t moved into the GT bundle—considering the Caravan’s family mission, we’d feel that each conceivable wellbeing highlight would be prepared in from the begin.
A 6.5-inch touch-screen infotainment framework is recently standard for 2017, yet it’s not another framework general.
