1997 Dodge Caravan Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 9 reviews
Chrysler is trying to snazz them up, trying to make them less boring appearance-wise, but let's face it, people aren't buying minivans to impress their friends and neighbors. The minivan is a utility vehicle for hauling work, kids, pets, and the kitchen sink. And in this respect, the Dodge Caravan is still the highest-rated minivan among experts and car owners.
The 1997 Dodge Caravan brings back the all-wheel drive option, but only in the Grand Caravans, SE and higher. All other models continue to have front-wheel drive. Anti-lock brakes are available in all models, and low-speed traction control comes with the LE models. Experts give it above average ratings in reliability, safety, and handling, with the 3.8-liter V6 engine obviously offering the smoothest, most powerful ride of the four engine options. All the other engines offer the most power in the engine class however.
Owners say they are reliable, handle like a car, and are quiet and stable. The Caravans are the best selling, most award winning minivan on the market. Typically, with each model revision come features that are innovative, often setting the bar for other minivans.
