2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Overview

As the minivan was saddled with a suburban soccer mom image, and box-like appearance, sales began to slow. The Dodge Grand Caravan was still on top, but was trying to figure out ways to appeal to a broader base of economically minded families.

In 2002, the Grand Caravan offered two "value" trims, the eX and eL. The eX, was similar to an ES, with its 3.8-liter, 210-hp V6 engine and many of the same standard features, but it offered less options and a cheaper price tag. The eL was also more affordable, and came with the 3.3-liter, 180-hp V6. AWD was only offered in the Sport and ES trims, and was coupled with the 3.8 V6 for better handling, more power, and better traction in bad weather and rough roads.

New for 2002 was a dealer-installed DVD system, and a slightly redesigned front fascia for the ES. While SE now came standard with air conditioning, all higher models offere three-zone temperature control for each row of seats and adjustable pedals and brakes.

The 2002 Grand Caravan gets good driving marks from experts and owners, with its car-like feel and handling, its quick acceleration and sure-footedness, and the smooth and easy AutoStick transmission, available in ES models. While the rear seats do not fold into the floor and are bulky to remove, the Grand Caravan scores high on ride comfort, cargo space, and seat configuration. It scores low for reliability and repair record.
