The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Chevrolet Uplander has been put out of its misery, but if you can find one cheap, it’s not a bad cargo carrier. The 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan is loaded with practical features that families on the go will use and appreciate, but it’s not the most luxurious minivan out there.
