The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

4.5
3.8

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan may boast a storied nameplate, but this minivan is way behind the times. The 2018 Dodge Journey should be available at big discounts, which is the only way we’d consider it over far more polished rivals.
