2016 Grand Caravan is the new Dodge in Toronto and this new minivan has outperformed its rivals. Superior seating system for up to eight passengers and ample cargo space with second-and-third-row seats folding are highlights of the Grand Caravan.

 

Interior styling

 

Since the Caravan wears the traditional look of boxy design, there are not many changes on the exterior side. But the slab sided design makes way for air and roomy interior. Folded seats are accommodated in the floor and space is used as cargo bins when the seats are in use. Third-row-seats have power option that makes seat folding a breeze. Interior design with plastic and seat upholstery is satisfactory and so is the electronics especially the Uconnect 6.5 inch touch screen infotainment interface.

 

Power/Performance

 

All Grand Caravans come with a 3.6L V6 engine. Engine power is rated at 283 hp and it is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in only 8 seconds and its economy is 20 mpg combined and 17/25 on city/highway driving. Here it is necessary to mention that DGC comes in front-wheel-drive only.

 

Minivans are all about utility for carrying passengers and cargo but if it’s only cargo then a 2016 Ram 1500 that is one of the new Ram trucks in Toronto is the best choice. Another reason that makes Ram 1500 a better choice than Grand Caravan is price. Ram 1500 is only a few hundred dollars more than the Grand Caravan. And you won’t regret paying some extra dollars for buying a full-size pickup that is good for off-road journeys and also for daily grind.

 

2016 Ram 1500 isn’t the only choice in full-size pickup trucks as there are others as well but Ram’s performance makes it distinct. A powerful 305 hp and 3.6L gasoline V6 engine is used as base engine and a rotary knob is used instead of traditional shift lever to shift power from 8-speed auto transmission to front wheels that is the standard.

 

Ram has another engine for higher models. It is a 5.7L V8 engine and it boasts 395 hp and builds an impressive torque of 410 lb-ft. V8 is hooked to 6-speed auto transmission but buyers can also choose 8-speed auto transmission.

 

An EcoDiesel turbocharged engine is also kept as an option for cost conscious buyers. It is a 240 hp and 3L V6 engine. Eight-speed auto transmission is mandatory for this engine. And it’s the most fuel-efficient full-size pickup with mileage of 24 mpg combined and 21/29 on city/highway driving.

 

Body sizes

 

Multiple body sizes for individual needs. The regular cab comes with a cabin for three passengers and a large up to 8 foot bed for cargo. The extended cab can accommodate six passengers and take heavy load on its 6 foot bed. The crew cab that can also work as a family vehicle has more legroom for rear seats and it comes in 5.7 foot and 6.4 foot bed sizes.

 

A Ram 1500 V6 gas truck can carry up to 7,610 pounds and diesel version of V6 has the capacity to tow more than 9000 pounds. And the powerful V8 engine can take more than 10,000 pounds on its bed.
