2005 Dodge Grand Caravan Overview

It must be the same feeling man experienced when they first discovered fire. Or the wheel. The 2005 Grand Caravan's innovative Stow 'N Go seating has been a revelation for minivan owners everywhere. How did they ever cope without it?

All hail Stow 'N Go seating, a feature that allows for a multitude of configurations of seating and cargo space in the second and third row. For the first time in a Grand Caravan, the second and third row seats fold flat into the floor. When upright, the floor compartments add more storage. The rear seats split 60/40 and can be turned to face the tailgate. They fold out into a king-size bed with adjustable mattress numbers and can microwave meals in 30 seconds! (Well, the last two I made up) The feature has made storage and seat removal a lot easier for drivers who complained about the heaviness and bulk of the third row seats.

The 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan lost the eX trim and added an SE Plus instead. New features for 2005 are more safety-oriented, including curtain side airbags for all rows and a driver's knee airbag. Traction control is standard on SXT. For the first time, AWD is not offered on any Grand Caravan to make room for Stow 'N Go. A new optional ceiling rail lets you attach storage bins or other items. Second and third-row seats can recline back, and the seats themselves are more cushiony.

Not a surprise, the Stow 'N Go is a huge hit, in addition to already much-loved features, like cargo space, quiet ride, car-like handling, good acceleration, and a well-thought out interior. Repair record is still a problem, with a focus on bad brakes. Some drivers hope for better gas mileage and a longer shelf-life for the Grand Caravan, to rival its competitors.
