With several of the Dodge Grand Caravan's main rivals completely redesigned for 2011, Chrysler is barely keeping up in a class where it used to be the clear leader.
The Honda Odyssey has been completely redesigned for 2011, with a new seating layout that allows adult-size comfort in back, along with a new class-leading wide-screen entertainment system; it's also class-leading for fuel economy.
Also, the 2011 Toyota Sienna is all-new and while it feels heavier and more ponderous than the model it replaces it's so refined that it might as well have a Lexus badge.
For value, there's the Kia Sedona, which is due to be replaced but could be quite a bargain.
Also, Nissan's Quest will be all-new as a late entry for 2011, while the 2011 Ford Flex remains a wild-card alternative.
With MINI-esque styling and a seven-passenger interior, it would be called a minivan if it didn't have hinged doors.
