The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan has some innovative features and seating options, but it's no longer at the head of the class in performance or refinement. You'll find the 2008 Hyundai Entourage at the intersection of Practical St. and Value Ave.
