2012 Dodge Grand Caravan vs. 2012 Honda Odyssey

2012 Dodge Grand CaravanAny fun-loving family in the province of Alberta would adore a 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan. Whether you’re coming over all the way from Lethbridge, Warner, Swift Current, or Brooks, Canadians everywhere are in for a treat. When you bring your kids along for the ride to see this generously spacious, eight-passenger van glimmering beneath the Albertan sun, you’ll wonder why you even vaguely considered the competition. But as a smart comparative shopper, we respect your need to know why the Caravan is the way to go. Here are some of the reasons why the latest Dodge Grand Caravan outstrips its rival, the Honda Odyssey.

Similar Outsides, Different Insides

Although the exteriors of the two vehicles are very similar in their general structure and features, their respective interiors differ strongly. Both vans boast liftgates, 16 or 17 inch steel wheels, clearcoat monotone paint application, and heated mirrors with power remotes.

However, let us not judge books by their covers. The Odyssey has a few tricks up its sleeve that are enviable features in the eyes of many. But you would be missing out on all of the following luxuries specific to the Dodge:

  • Mechanical fuel flap release
  • Two seatback storage areas
  • Exterior temperature sensors
  • 3 power outlets instead of only 2
  • Simulated wood instrument panel
  • Dual Front Zone air conditioning
  • Steering wheel audio controls

Drivers should also keep in mind that the Grand Caravan is a stronger and more powerful van than the Odyssey, sporting more torque, horsepower, and towing capacity.
