Minivans segment is shrinking but still there is a decent number of buyers that are interested in vehicles like 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan. There are many strong competitors in this market and among those are the Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey, Mazda 5 and Kia Sedona.
Since currently available model of Grand Caravan is on the market since the 2011th it is time for a redesign and changes. Still many details about this vehicle is not offered officially but we will have to wait for it little longer. We do have information’s about changes that will be delivered and those details will be shared here.
Like with previous models we will be most likely getting only one engine option, this is where we would like to see improvements and more efficient and different units to be offered. Only engine is the 3.5 liter V6 powerplant that offers 283 hp at 6400 and 260 lb-ft of torque at 4400 rpm. This engine transfers power to the wheels through a six speed automatic transmission to fron wheels and we do expect to see all wheel drive option again offered to buyers.
Redesigned Dodge Grand Caravan
One of the things that we really like about 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan is that its base price is set to $ 20.000 which represents one of the best offers on the market, especially when we add equipment to the equation. Drivers that want to add additional features and more tech gadgets will be still under $ 30.000. Things like Blu-Ray DVD entertainmnt, satelite radio, USB ports are optional.
Main advantage of minivans and what most drivers are looking for with these vehicle is their possibility to transport large number of passengers and their laguage. Utility is the main factor here and this vehicle is capable to transport up to eight passengers. When time comes and you need more cargo space you will be able to fold both second and third row of seats maximizing trunk space.
Another segment where we need to commend the 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan is the safety. There is no doubt that minivans needs to deliver highest level of safety and according to crash tests that were conducted by IIHS sorts it out to the Top Safety Pick. This is important for every brand since safety is one of the most important features for U.S. drivers that are buying new vehicles.
2015 Dodge Grand Caravan Release Date
Even we still do not have any details about the looks and no images have been released we are pretty sure that Dodge will stay true to the looks of previous models. It will come with a boxy design but we certainly do hope that changes will make it slightly more modern on the both interior and exterior. When it comes to release date we are still waiting to see and hear details but we do expect that the official presentation of production ready model happen during summer of this year and that it will be offered in dealerships before the end of 2014th.
