The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.3
4.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan has a fantastically flexible interior, but crash-test scores are a major concern. The 2017 Dodge Journey is a minivan in every way except its doors. Families will be tempted by the price, but there are better, safer picks out there.
