The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan is a high-functioning box on wheels—with the old penalty-box trim neatly excised, and a new powertrain spliced into place. A singular look, along with top-shelf turbo power and features, earns the 2011 Ford Flex our top score among utility vehicles. The 2011 Toyota Sienna adds room and adult-duty second-row seats, but leaves ultimate flexibility and entertainment to the competition.
