The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

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. The Toyota Highlander gets a stronger, more responsive powertrain for 2017, but the main strengths are the ride quality, the cabin refinement, and the space for eight.
