The 2016 Dodge Caravan in Toronto is an exceptional value among minivans. Its superior seating system and Stow ‘n Go feature makes it the most flexible minivan on the market. The Grand Caravan is an inexpensive alternative to the well-mannered Honda Odyssey and the all-weather capable Toyota Sienna.


It can beat any three-row crossover SUV in seating comfort and cargo bay configurations. Also it offers more value for money. DGC comes in six trims and the first trim is Canadian Value package (CVP). Others are SE, SE Plus, SXT, SXT Plus and R/T. CVP needs special mention as it is an affordable way to get into a minivan.


The bargain-priced CVP features 17-inch steel wheels and it comes with reclining/folding/removable second row seat. It is so because the Stow ‘n Go is made optional for the base model. It has telescoping steering wheel and it boasts an advance entertainment system that is a four-speaker audio with CD player and an auxiliary audio jack. Like Stow ‘n Go feature, you can also order Uconnect Hands-free Group package.


Other trims of new Dodge Caravan Toronto also have optional packages and standalone features. The SE has second row captain’s chairs with Stow ‘n Go feature and the options available are Uconnect and Power Window Group package. SE Plus has 17-inch alloy wheels, special cloth upholstery and Power Window and Uconnecte packages. SXT has power sliding doors, power lift gate, large floor console, SE packages and roof rails. SXT Plus has more chrome on the exterior side and it is finished with leather upholstery with suede inserts.


Range topping R/T model boasts a performance tuned suspension and smart features like remote engine start and tri-zone automatic climatic control. You’ll get a 115-volt power outlet and a rearview camera. Also there is a large 6.5-inch touchscreen display and a nine-speaker audio system.


Different trims can be ordered with different packages. A DVD entertainment system with advance features that include 9-inch second-row display screen, an HDMI input and two USB charging parts is available with SE and SXT trims. These trims can also be ordered with the Blacktop appearance package that includes leather interior accents. SXT Plus and R/T trims have the advantage of Driver Convenience Group and an advance DVD/Blur-ray Entertainment System. R/T has an exclusive Safety Sphere group that adds rear parking sensors and other safety features to the minivan.


New Dodge Caravan Toronto has plenty of trims and customization opportunities but one drivetrain for all the trims. It packs a 3.6L V6 engine that cranks 283 hp and 260 pound-feet torque. A six-speed automatic is the sole transmission available and also front-wheel-drive is the standard across all the trims.


Safety won’t be a problem with DGC as is evident from the Safety Sphere Group package. But there are no worries even if you are buying any other trim as DGC performed well on every safety test. It scored four out of five stars on government crash testing and good on Insurance Institute for Highway Safety testing.
