1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Overview

The minivan never claimed to be anything but a family hauler, falling somewhere between a truck and a station wagon. Handling like a car, loaded with interior creature comforts, but with lots of cargo room, the 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan has earned many faithful owners and many grateful moms.

In addition to the 3.0-liter, 141-hp V6 or a 3.3-liter, 158-hp V6 engine, the 3.8-liter V6 raised its horsepower to 180 (from 162) in the 1998 Grand Caravan. Base model Grand Caravans housed the 3.0 V6, while all others came standard with the 3.3 V6. AWD Grand Caravans were equipped with the 3.8 V6. On SE models, a Sport Package with enhanced suspension gives the minivan a more energetic feel on the road, though it is not available with the 3.8 V6.

What's the number one function of a minivan? Of course it's hauling groceries, and new in the 1998 Grand Caravan are hooks on the backs of the rear seats to hold groceries more securely. For extra storage, the rear seats can be fairly easily rolled out for removal.
