Dodge eliminated the SE Plus trim level, folding its content into the new SE 35th Anniversary Edition with 17-in aluminum wheels, a bright grille and special badging, and a few upgrades like second-row Stow 'N Go seating. SXT also adds a 35th Anniversary Edition that includes navigation plus all the features of the Driver Convenience Group with heated front seats, a heated steering wheel and second-row window shades.

2019 Chrysler Pacifica-- The Grand Caravan's biggest competitor is just across the showroom wearing a Chrysler badge. It has all the latest safety features and high-tech gadgets, though it'll be more expensive. It's worth it.
2019 Honda Odyssey-- The Odyssey boasts comfy accommodations and an impressive technology suite, including an optional vacuum in the rear cargo area. But the Odyssey suffers from dull dynamics and styling that some will find questionable.
2019 Kia Sedona -- The Sedona touts handsome styling, a lot of equipment for the money and an impressive array of features and gadgets. It also comes with Kia's excellent 10-year powertrain warranty. Realistically, it's the smarter budget buy.
2019 Toyota Sienna -- The Sienna offers a powerful V6, two different driving flavors (comfort and sport), an especially comfortable and versatile second row and the unique availability of all-wheel drive.
Used version of any of the above minivans -- If one of those new minivan rivals are too expensive, finding a used or certified pre-owned version will still represent a better overall minivan than a new Grand Caravan.
