2005 Dodge Caravan

For years, Chrysler heard complaints from drivers about how cumbersome it was to remove the heavy rear seats from its Dodge Caravan minivan.  It took them a while, but in 2005, the Dodge Caravan introduced Stow 'n Go seating, a fast and easy way to reconfigure the second and third rows of this minivan.  Where Honda Odyssey had been doing this for a while, the Caravan is the first minivan to offer it in the second row as well as the third row.

The setup allows for a multitude of seating configurations.  Seats fold absolutely flat into the floor, or can be split where one is down and another is up.  The third row seats can be turned to face the rear.  When the seats are up, the floor compartments act as alternative storage.  Stow 'n Go is a big hit with owners and earns high ratings from experts, but is available only in the Grand Caravan models.

Also new in the 2005 Caravan are minor surface changes to the grille, fog lights, and new back seats.  Inside are optional side airbags for all seating, more cushiony seats, and reclining seats in the second and third row.  And if you could possibly need any more storage options, an overhead rail allows you to attach a DVD screen and removable storage bins.  Pretty soon they'll find a way to put storage bins in the steering wheel as well. The optional UConnect, attached to the audio system, is a hands-free wireless connection to your cell phone.

People buy minivans for their storage capacity, and this probably explains why the Dodge Caravan has maintained its top position for 20 years despite complaints of an underpowered engine and constant repairs.
