The 2009 Ford Flex is a different take on the traditional minivan.
With its MINI-esque styling and seven-passenger interior, this might be a Ford worth considering if you don't fall in love with the Grand Caravan.
If value is your biggest attractor, check out the Hyundai Entourage.
It does not offer everything the Dodge does, but the Entourage may have enough for you.
If you're not sure you need all the room found in the 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan, check out the Mazda5.
It's sportier and more fun to drive than the Dodge.
Don't even think of asking for Stow 'n Go seats or Sirius TV at a Honda or Toyota dealership.
Dodge's price point is significantly lower than either the Honda's or Toyota's, and the Grand Caravan offers more variety in terms of powertrains and available features than either competitor.
And if you drive the 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan back to back with a Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna, you'll likely feel some differences in refinement; the Dodge doesn't quite have the level of polish that the Honda and Toyota do.
