2006 Dodge Grand Caravan

Still reeling from the success of the Stow 'N Go seating in 2005, the 2006 Grand Caravan made few changes to its reinvigorated line of minivans, still number one in sales.  At 200 inches long, the Grand Caravan could be customized to fit whatever amount of passengers or cargo you were carrying, from the utilitarian Cargo Van to the luxurious feel of the top-of-the-line SXT.

The SE Plus was dropped, leaving the base SE, SXT, and C/V Cargo Van.  A 3.3-liter, 180-hp V6 came standard in the C/V and SE, with the SXT being powered by a 3.8-liter, 205-hp V6.  ABS was standard across all models, as were curtain side airbags for all rows and a driver's knee airbag.  The SXT came standard with the now-famous Stow 'N Go seating which offered seat and cargo configurability.  

Aside from the success of Stow 'N Go, the power sliding doors and power liftgate (standard on SXT) are big hits with drivers, along with the comfortable seating, and agile handling.  The ride is generally quiet, although with the seats folded down, road noise does increase slightly.  Most owner complaints involve a cheap-looking plastic interior and reliability.
