SAFETY | 8 out of 10
Both agencies have changed their scoring standards, so we'll have to wait for more information before pronouncing the Chrysler vans' grades. Last year's Grand Caravan earned top 'good' models from the frontal offset The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) hasn't yet specified whether those test results extend to the 2011 model, which has a significantly altered interior compared to the 2010. Federal NHTSA safety ratings have been restructured for 2011, too, so the previous year's results surely don't carry over; overall, the 2010 Grand Caravan earned top five-star results in frontal and side impacts.
Thanks to the boxy design and vast greenhouse, outward visibility in the 2011 Dodge Caravan is impressive.
The 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan looks to continue its reputation for top-notch safety, though with a lack of updated crash-test results it's too early to declare it a top pick.
