2008 Chevrolet Uplander vs. Its Competition

2008 Chevrolet Uplander 4-door Reg WB LS Open Doors
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The minivan market is shrinking, and only the best competitors are still standing.

The perennial favorites in the class are the Chrysler and Honda vans.

The Chrysler minivans for 2008 have much more angular styling, and they're laden with features such as in-car satellite television.

The Honda Odyssey still feels the slickest of all, while the Toyota Sienna is a reliable second choice.

The Kia Sedona and Hyundai Entourage are fraternal twins and good performers, though not the great bargains they used to be.

Quick Specs
6.2
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.
8.2
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.
8.4
The 2008 Honda Odyssey melds everyday practicality with fun-to-drive.
7.6
The 2008 Toyota Sienna minivan does almost everything right for the family, with a roomy, functional interior and great ride comfort, but there’s not a lot of personality.
