2010 Dodge Grand Caravan Review

Family minivan with interior versatility but not fit and finish

Reviewed by Automotive on

In a Nutshell
The 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan is a family-oriented minivan that comes in a host of configurations: Cargo Passenger Minivan, Crew Passenger Minivan, Hero Passenger Minivan, SE Passenger Minivan, and SXT Passenger Minivan. Powered by a 3.3-liter V-6, 3.8-liter V-6, or a 4.0-liter V-6, the Dodge Grand Caravan is equipped with a four- or six-speed automatic transmission.

With loads of desirable features, such as Swivel-n-Go and Stow-n-Go seats, the Dodge Grand Caravan also provides a child-friendly entertainment system for the rear seats as well as in-vehicle wireless Internet. Great safety scores round out the list of desirables in the Dodge Grand Caravan. However, fuel economy is in the below average range with 12 mpg city / 17 mpg highway.

New for 2010

Because the design of the Dodge Grand Caravan was still fairly new, the 2010 model received only a few minor tweaks: standard active head restraints for front-row occupants, standard three-zone climate control for the SE, 3.16 axle ratio for the SXT 4.0, and rear obstacle detection display for the Security Group package.

Essentials

Engines: 3.3L V-6, 3.8L V-6, 4.0L V-6
Transmissions: 6-speed automatic, 4-speed automatic
Body Style: Minivan
Trims: Cargo Passenger Minivan, Crew Passenger Minivan, Hero Passenger Minivan, SE Passenger Minivan, SXT Passenger Minivan

On the Outside

While the Dodge Grand Caravan has a boxy design that maximizes interior space, the minivan is nowhere near stylish.

From the Inside

The Dodge Grand Caravan's interior is loaded with cup holders and storage cubbyholes, while the Stow-N-Go second-row seats and power third row can fold flat.

Driving Performance

The Dodge Grand Caravan SXT powered by the 4.0-liter V-6 engine generates a respectable 251 horsepower and 259 pound-feet of torque while also achieving the best fuel economy of the line. On the other hand, the SE's 3.3-liter V-6 engine pushes out just 175 horsepower and 205 pound-feet of torque and the SXT's base 3.8-liter V-6 engine outputs 197 horsepower and 230 pound-feet.

Safety Equipment

Standard safety features on the Dodge Grand Caravan include side curtain airbags for all three rows, dual-front airbags, and stability control. Optional feature include a rear-backup camera and a rear-park assist system.

Gas Mileage

SE: 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway
SXT 3.8L: 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway
SXT 4.0L: 17 mpg city/25 mpg highway

Plusses

  • Stow-n-Go versatility
  • 4.0-liter's gas mileage

Minuses

  • Base engine's power
  • Lack of interior fit and finish
