Considering a 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan for the Entire Family?

While minivans may not be as stylish as an SUV, they still remain one of the most convenient vehicles for carrying the family, groceries, or anything else you might happen to pick up around town. One of the options you will likely encounter is the 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan, which is outfitted with a wide range of features such as:

  • A powerful 3.6L V6 engine
  • Versatile seating options
  • A vast array of entertainment features

Without question the 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan is an adequate choice for the entire family, but it doesn’t stand up to the fuel efficiency, interior space, or high-tech safety features of the 2014 Honda Odyssey.

Both the 2014 Honda Odyssey and Grand Caravan come powered by V6 engines, however, you’ll get better fuel economy with the Odyssey. The 2014 Odyssey delivers an EPA estimated 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway fuel efficiency* rating compared to the 2014 Grand Caravan’s 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. The Odyssey is also safer than the Grand Caravan, offering safety features such as a collision warning system, daytime running lights, and a lane departure warning system, none of which are available on the Dodge model.

You’ll get more passenger and cargo room with the 2014 Honda Odyssey, as it delivers 148.5 cubic feet of maximum cargo space and can seat up to eight passengers, while the 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan offers maximum cargo room of 143.8 cubic feet and can only seat up to seven passengers.
