The Dodge Caravan minivan, first introduced in 1984, has established a tradition of offering customers style, versatility and added features at an outstanding value. With the introduction of the upmarket Grand Caravan in 1987, the model has introduced over 75 new features to the category.
That continues to this day as the 2019 Grand Caravan is equipped with more than 55 available safety, security and technology features. One innovation that continues is the Grand Caravan’s industry-exclusive Super Stow ‘n Go seating, which can be easily operated with one hand, allowing users to convert from carrying seven to hauling cargo in a matter of seconds.
