1989 Dodge Caravan Overview

The 1989 Dodge Caravan is a popular year for car collectors because of a rare turbocharged 2.5-liter, 150-horsepower engine option. It was available in the 5-speed manual and 3-speed automatic versions. Because Chrysler sold very few, the manual turbo version is extremely rare and has achieved a certain cult status.

The turbo engine certainly gave the 1989 Dodge Caravan more speed and pick-up, and is often modified by car enthusiasts who want to see just how fast they can get it to go. There is a claimed record out there of a quarter mile in 12.6 seconds.

Also new for 1989 is an electronically controlled 4-speed "Ultradrive" automatic, which proved disastrous. The Mini Ram Van had its named changed to Caravan C/V. The Dodge Caravan offers seven trims -- base, SE, LE, the Grand Caravan SE and LE, and the C/V standard and extended. Fuel economy averages about 21/23 across all models.

Praised mostly for its durability,solid, comfortable ride, and cargo capacity, the Dodge Caravan does receive complaints about engine and transmission problems.
