The Dodge Grand Caravan has been Canada’s favourite minivan for over 31 years, and drivers from Maple Creek and Brooks continue to trust it over competitors like the 2016 Honda Odyssey. That isn’t just down to brand loyalty; with Best-in-Class power, Class-Exclusive features, and close to a $10,000 difference in starting prices, the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan more than earns its immense popularity. Keep reading to see how the 2016 Grand Caravan compares to the 2016 Honda Odyssey.

Confident Drive

Whether you have the whole family in the vehicle with you or a whole heap of cargo, you’ll need to know that stepping on the gas will make your minivan respond as you want it to. That’s why the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan offers a 3.6L Pentastar VVT V6 engine that is capable of putting up to a Best-in-Class output of 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque at your disposal, plus a Best-in-Class maximum tow rating of 1633 kg.

Put simply, your minivan will behave more like a sedan thanks to its healthy output. Unfortunately, that just won’t be the case with the 2016 Honda Odyssey; its own V6 makes just 248 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque, and that makes a big difference.

Family-Friendly Versatility

Of course, the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan isn’t all about power. Once you slip inside, you’ll find one of the most flexible cabins around, so you’ll be able to fit your interior around your own changing needs using the following amenities:

  • Industry-Exclusive 2nd-row Super Stow ‘n Go Seats: A one-touch fold-down operation pulls down the headrests, flips the backrests forwards, and then unhinges the rear seat anchor. You’ll be able to have them stowed down in next to no time.
  • 3rd-row Stow ‘n Go Seats with Class-Exclusive Tailgate Seating: The 3rd row comes with Stow ‘n Go functionality as standard to let Maple Creek and Brooks drivers stow added cargo when necessary. There’s also tailgate seating to ensure that you have a place to perch when taking in the outdoors or simply watching a Little League match.

Such features mean that you’ll enjoy up to 81 possible interior seating and cargo configurations, but you won’t find them with competitors like the 2016 Honda Odyssey.

Lower Price, Stronger Features

Maple Creek and Brooks drivers are also drawn to the Grand Caravan by its low price-tag; it starts at just $23,495. The 2016 Honda Odyssey, on the other hand, demands at least $30,790.

You could pick up a top-of-the-line Grand Caravan Crew model, which offers amenities such as tri-zone automatic temperature control (ATC), Chrome Stow ‘n Place roof rack and the System Super Console, and you’d still be paying less.

The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is in a League of its Own
