2006 Dodge Caravan Overview

The 2006 Dodge Caravan isn't much different than its 2005 predecessor, which introduced the Stow 'n Go option in the Grand Caravans. This feature earned high marks from reviewers and drivers for its ease of operation and versatility.

Trims are unchanged from 2005, with SE and SXT and the C/V available as either regular shorter wheelbase models, or the larger Grand Caravans. What comes as standard on the Grand Caravans (leather seats, anti-lock brakes, power windows) are all options for the regular models. Regular SE models come with a 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder 150-horsepower engine, while SXT and the Grand Caravans come in either a 3.3-liter or 3.8 liter V6, with 180 and 215-horsepower engines respectively.

Drivers still rate the 2006 Dodge Caravan highly for its comfortable ride, hauling capacity, and value for the money, but expert ratings have dropped a bit, particularly in areas of reliability. Generally a quiet ride, more so in the V6 rather than the 4-cylinder engines, use of Stow 'n Go increases outside noise.
