For three decades, Chrysler Dodge Jeep Rams Caravan line has been the icon of the minivan class, giving owners more flexibility, reliability, and passenger/cargo room than any other. It is no different in 2018 with the new Grand Caravan. This is the perfect vehicle for a large family or for anyone who constantly finds themselves with a little extra cargo or some unexpected passengers. If you have been searching for a minivan that can take some of the hassle out of your hectic lifestyle, look no further – we here at Eide Chrysler have got you covered with the 2018 Grand Caravan.
While most people do not look at a minivan and immediately wonder what is under the hood, it is important to know what kind of mileage you will get out of the engine. The Grand Caravan’s 3.6 liter (L) V6 engine (mated with a six-speed automatic transmission) can get you 283 horsepower (hp). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimated fuel mileage for the 2018 version is 17 miles per gallon (mpg) while driving on Bismarck streets, 25 miles per gallon on Bismarck ND highways, and 20 mpg combined.
The minivan has always been the go-to vehicle when people need enough room for both people and cargo, and that is why Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram has designed the 2018 Grand Caravan to exceed everyone’s expectations. Capable of seating seven, the third and second row in this minivan fold down to fit into compartments in the floor with the Stow ‘n Go technology, effectively tripling your cargo space to over 140 cubic feet. This is a far more flexible feature than offered in some others in the minivan class, particularly those when the seats have to be physically removed to make extra room. In addition, there are a number of cubby storage compartments throughout the vehicle, like an in-floor storage compartment right behind the third row of seats. Front seat compartments let you store your phone, sunglasses, or wallet, and an overhead bin for passengers lets them safely stow away their small items as well. While you can fold up the second row of seats into bins if you need the room, you can also use those bins when the seats are up to hide away any valuables when you are away from your vehicle for long periods of time. One of the most innovative configurations of seating in the 2018 Grand Caravan is the 60/40 split rear row of seats which can be flipped around entirely into a tailgate position, giving you the perfect spectator seats to watch a game of pick-up or a street performance.
”Infotainment” has become one of the hallmarks of every new vehicle, and in that area this minivan has got you covered. The 6.5-inch color touchscreen is standard and comes complete with Uconnect software. Bluetooth compatibility is also available, ensuring that you can drive with hands-free technology. You can take advantage of real time navigation, weather, and traffic notification features, as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio. If you are often charging your mobile device on the go, the option of having a USB drive in the front will be a must-have feature.
Safety is paramount no matter what you are going to be driving, and Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram has ensure that the newest Grand Caravan is up to snuff. The All-Speed Traction Control system detects any wheel slippage and automatically applies brake pressure and/or lowers engine output in order to maintain vehicular stability. The Parkview Rear Back Up Camera and the Parksense Rear Park Assist help to view and detect anything that might be in your path while you are in reverse, and also assist you in backing up into a parking spot to position the minivan perfectly.
There is a reason that the Grand Caravan has been such a staple among North American drivers for as long it has. It is the perfect blend of versatility, reliability, and convenience, making it the minivan to beat in 2018.
