2008 Dodge Grand Caravan Van
Benefits of Driving a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan Van
As before, the Dodge Grand Caravan--along with the mechanically identical but cosmetically different Chrysler Town & Country--continues to have some of the most innovative features, and the all-new 2008 model stands out for its rethought interior and the new Swivel 'n Go arrangement. Chrysler claims that its minivans are still the only ones to offer a seating system like its Stow 'n Go, which allows both the second- and third-row seats to fold fully into the floor. The automaker also says that the available DVD entertainment system, which can play different media at the same time, is a minivan first. Many of the other features now available on the Grand Caravan, including ambient lighting, heated second-row seats, and sunshades, are yet unavailable on much of the competition.
What's new for 2008?
For 2008, the shorter-length Dodge Caravan has been dropped from the lineup, leaving the longer Grand Caravan model, which has been completely redesigned for 2008. The Grand Caravan has an all-new look inside and out, more powerful engines, an innovative Swivel 'n Go seating system, and new entertainment features.
