There is no shortage of features available for the 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan, not the least of which are “a removable, cordless, rechargeable flashlight in the cargo area, power sliding doors and rear hatch, adjustable pedals and overhead LED reading lights for all three rows of seating,” Autoblog reports.
The most innovative option, available only on Chrysler products, is Sirius Backseat TV. Cars.com describes it in mild terms as a "new way to keep the kids entertained." With this option, you get the three most popular kids channels free for the first year on two separate overhead LCD screens, each of which can broadcast a different channel. “Sirius TV only gets three channels: Nickelodeon, Disney, and Cartoon Network,” though, CNet observes.
Parents in the front are not forgotten. There’s an available MyGIG entertainment option that stores up to 20GB of music and video, which can be uploaded via anything with USB capability. “MyGIG lets you access music by artist, song, album, genre, and year, among others," CNet says. “It's a full-featured music player, and we found that it worked very well.”
Finally, for all the real "soccer moms" who cannot be without their cell phones, the 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan can be equipped with Bluetooth wireless capability. There’s also an available navigation system that offers Sirius’s Travel Link service, which pipes information on traffic, weather, movie listings, and sports scores into the car’s screen. The Washington Post calls it a “navigation, telecommunications, and an audiovisual entertainment system that will ignite your senses more than a stay in a $1,000-a-night room in the MGM Grand Detroit Hotel and Casino."
The 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan has all the features you expect in a minivan—and many more, including in-car satellite TV.
