Dodge Grand Caravan Review
Sometimes life can be unpredictable, and you need an adaptable and versatile vehicle to help you conquer it all. At Hillview Motors, we think the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan has what it takes for Greensburg, Jeannette, and Delmont area drivers, so we explored some of our favorite features in this car review.
2018 Dodge Grand Caravan Safety
One thing that’s very important to drivers carrying precious cargo is safety, which the Grand Caravan certainly puts first.
This van comes equipped with seven advanced multistage airbags that line the car from front to back, including side-curtain airbags to protect passengers’ heads. The specially designed front and rear crumple zones also help to absorb energy from an impact, while a high-strength steel frame improves overall impact performance.
To try to prevent collisions from happening in the first place, this van also makes a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Path Detection available, so you’re aware of other cars in your side and rear blind spots when merging on the highway or backing out of parking spot.
Drivers can also safely monitor backseat activity through the standard observation mirror, so they can see what’s happening behind them without having to turn around—this is especially helpful when there are energetic kids in the backseat.
Grand Caravan Infotainment Technology
The Dodge Grand Caravan offers many ways for everyone in the car to stay connected and entertained. Drivers can enjoy the available Uconnect® Voice Command System with Hands-Free Calling, for example.
This system allows you to connect your smartphone with Bluetooth®, so you can operate your phone, radio, or navigation, all without taking your hands off the wheel or your eyes off the road. With this available infotainment system, you can stay safe while also staying connected.
For those in the backseat, there’s a single DVD entertainment system to keep them entertained on long road trips. Passengers can enjoy their favorite movies or use the HDMI port to connect gaming consoles. They can listen to movies or games through the van’s sound system, or through wireless headphones.
The screen folds down from the ceiling when you want to watch, and folds back up when not in use, to keep it damage-free.
Dodge Grand Caravan Interior Features
Whether you’re traveling with sporting equipment, dance bags, or an entire little league team, you’ll have plenty of space for everything you need in the highly versatile Dodge Grand Caravan interior.
With all seats upright, the van can seat seven in total, leaving 33 cubic feet of cargo space. If you need more room, fold down the third and second rows to open to a 143.8 ft3 cargo area. With the available Super Stow ’n Go® second-row bucket seats, you can fold the second row down flat into the floor to create a level loading area.
This feature is especially neat because, when the seats are upright, the underfloor compartment converts into 12 cubic feet of hidden storage space for small items.
The Grand Caravan also has an available tailgate feature that allows you to flip the third-row seats back completely, creating a perfect tailgate, where you can sit comfortably with the rear liftgate open.
