The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan puts its money on its flexible interior and entertaining features, but its performance is matched and styling bettered by newer competition. The 2009 Ford Flex is one of the most stylish new crossovers, with great passenger room and more features than some minivans.
