2008 Dodge Grand Caravan Overview

The Dodge Grand Caravan van gets a redesign and an available 4.0-liter, 251-hp V6 engine for 2008. This model comes in 2 trims. The SE has a standard 4-speed automatic transmission, and the SXT has a standard 6-speed automatic.

Gas mileage comes out to 16 mpg in the city and 23 on the highway. Both trims have 4 doors and seat 7 passengers. Maximum cargo capacity is 144 cubic feet, and max towing capacity hits 2,000 pounds. The SE features a 3.3-liter, 175-hp V6, while the SXT offers a 3.8-liter, 197-hp V6, along with the aforementioned optional 4.0-liter model.

Dodge has stuck by the minivan through thick and thin, and the critics like the result. In addition, the Grand Caravan's technical and safety features have taken a step forward. On the other hand, this minivan doesn't have quite the style that its predecessors had. Regardless, even as other carmakers jump ship in the shrinking minivan market, the Dodge Grand Caravan has still earned its spot at the top.
