1992 Dodge Grand Caravan Trims

3 Dr ES AWD Passenger Van Extended

Travel in luxury through the snow and mud in a 1992 Grand Caravan ES AWD. If you live in a snowy climate, or have the urge to rough it in a not-so-rough way, the ES performance model combines luxury with power and stability.

Driven by a 3.3-liter, 150-hp V6 engine, perched on 15-inch alloy wheels, with fog lights and power heated mirrors, the ES AWD is ready for anything that gets thrown in its way. It features all the comforts of the regular ES, but with the added benefit and cost of AWD.

The performance model and top of the line Grand Caravan is the ES. Like, the LE, it offers teh 3.3-liter, 150-hp V6 engine paired with a 4-speed automatic, and such standard features as driver's front airbag, power windows and locks, trip computer, overhead console, air conditioning, and cruise control. But in addition to these, it offers a more sporty package, including fog lights and alloy wheels.

Also standard in 1992 are power heated mirrors, intermittent wipers, remote trunk release, and lighted entry. For options, you can get captain's chairs for the front and second row, ABS, leather upholstery, and a roof rack. If your main reason for buying a minivan is to be pampered while you ride in comfort, the performance model Grand Caravan ES fills those needs. As with all Grand Caravans, owners warn about lengthy repair records.

It seats seven people in three rows. The third row is removable. Cupholders everywhere. An overhead console, tinted windows, power locks, mirrors, and windows, cruise control, a clock, air conditioning -- why would you ever want to get out of this minivan? The LE offers amenities that make long rides comfortable, and the Grand Caravan LE AWD makes sure you get to wherever you're going no matter what the road and weather conditions.

The 1992 Grand Caravan AWD is powered by the 3.3, 150-hp V6 and is a bit more expensive than the regular LE. Probably not the best choice if most of your driving is city driving, but for rugged roads and inclement weather, drivers love their powerhorse.

If you're looking for a little more luxury and creature comforts while you're transporting kids in the family minivan, the 1992 Grand Caravan LE is a good place to start. Carrying the same 3.3-liter, 150-hp V6 engine as the SE, its main differences are the standard features.

Building on the SE, it adds a trip computer, power windows and locks, an overhead console, air conditioning, a clock, tilt steering wheel, and cruise control. Leather seats and ABS brakes are optional.

Drivers love their LEs for their comfortable seating, large storage space, engine power capable of hauling big loads, and many keep their Grand Caravans for years, despite frequent visits to the repair shop.

The 1992 Grand Caravan SE AWD offers the same engine and standard features as the SE, but, of course, with all-wheel drive, so the pricetag is a bit higher and the fuel economy a bit worse (15/20 mpg). Paired with the 3.3-liter, 150-hp V6 and 4-speed automatic, the AWD gives the Grand Caravan a lot of power to get up hills and over rough terrain, and many drivers compliment it on its ability to handle snowy conditions well.

As with most Dodge Grand Caravans, the two main drawbacks to this sturdy family car that seats seven are early transmission failures and peeling paint.

The 1992 Grand Caravan SE is the next step up from the STD trim. It comes with the same standard features -- power side mirrors, power steering and brakes, driver's front airbag, 15-inch wheels. But inside, it has a larger engine, a 3.3-liter, 150-hp V6 coupled with a 4-speed automatic transmission. Air conditioning and power locks and windows are still optional.

Comfort is the key here, and the Grand Caravan SE provides it in spades. At 192 inches long, with a 119.3-inch wheelbase, there is a lot of cargo room to hold anything from light groceries, to a load of plywood. Drivers love the power and acceleration that comes with the 3.3 V6, and think it makes a great family car. Most mention problems with the transmission.

A standard 2.5-liter, 150-hp I4 engine may not be enough to satisfactorily power the Grand Caravan C/V AWD, so you may want to spend a little extra and get either the optional 3.0 V6 or the 3.3 V6.

The AWD C/V is spacious, with 160-cubic feet of storage area, and a seat for two up front. Less concerned with creature comforts than functionality, its standard features are the same as the regular C/V, with an offered optional tow package. Drivers love the interior room and how the AWD handles in the snow, but complain about its wide turn radius.

The 1992 Grand Caravan Cargo Van (C/V) is a van in every sense of the word. Its purpose is to get stuff from one point to another, with nothing fancy to get in the way. Only seating two, it comes standard with a 2.5-liter, 150-hp I4 and 5-speed manual transmission. Power brakes and steering, bucket seats, and tinted windows, and 14-inch wheels are also standard. A special tow package is available.

The Grand Caravan C/V has a lot of room, about 160-cubic feet of it for all of your hauling needs. And if you spend more to get one of the V6 engines, you'll have enough power to feel confident behind the wheel.

A three-door minivan that seats seven comfortably, with plenty of cargo space, the 1992 Grand Caravan STD is rated at 19/24 mpg despite its size and the 3.0-liter, 142-hp V6 engine it's carrying. The STD is offered with a 3-speed automatic transmission. Standard features in the base model include driver's front airbag, power side mirrors, 15-inch wheels, cloth seats, power mirrors and bucket seats. Air conditioning, cruise control, and power locks all come optional. It is the only Grand Caravan to not offer AWD.

The Grand Caravan STD is the least expensive of the various trims, with the least interior luxuries, but its affordability as a family car is a big selling point for owners, who also love its cargo space. They don't love the cost of frequent repairs and the paint wearing off.
