2018 Dodge Grand Caravan vs. Its Competition

2018 Dodge Grand Caravan
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

If you’re in the market for a minivan, the Chrysler Pacifica and Honda Odyssey should be at the top of your list.

They’re thoroughly modern vehicles and both boast an exceptional attention to detail.

Value pricing may steer you toward the Toyota Sienna, which is incidentally the only minivan available with all-wheel drive.

If it’s a Dodge you’re after, the automaker’s Durango three-row SUV offers room for a gaggle of adults and kids while delivering a far more upmarket experience than the Grand Caravan.

Quick Specs
4.5
The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan may boast a storied nameplate, but this minivan is way behind the times.
8.2
The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is a winner, combining our favorite minivan with a fuel-efficient plug-in hybrid powertrain and useful 33-mile electric range
6.5
The 2018 Dodge Durango prioritizes fun over practicality, but we’re fine with that.
7.8
The redesigned 2018 Honda Odyssey is exceptionally well thought out, brimming with cool tech, spacious, comfortable, and well controlled on the road. Add in plenty of safety features, and it's a smart way to carry the family.
6.3
The 2018 Toyota Sienna separates itself further from the pack with standard active safety features (great), available all-wheel drive (good), and a new face (uh).
