The ride quality and handling are harmless. When driving the Grand Caravan feels relaxed, and it’s poised through corners when it’s driven. Well-weighted steering also gives the driver a sense of engagement. The 180-foot stopping distance from 70 mph puts the vehicle in the middle of the pack, and its brake pedal feels firm.

Safety Features and Warranty
From the parking lot to the driveway, Dodge got your back. The Parkview Rear Back-Up Camera shifts into reverse, and it also offers a wide-angle view with on-screen gridlines of the area on the Uconnect Touchscreen. The all-speed traction power monitors for wheel slip. If wheel spin happens while driving, it will apply brake pressure to the slipping wheel(s), reducing the engine power to help maintain traction and vehicle stability.
The Dodge Grand Caravan has a lot of safety and security features which helps protect the driver and passengers. The foundation for the steel safety frame’s construction is built with high-strength steel, which contributes to the overall vehicle-impact performance.
The active front-seat head restraints move if the vehicle is in an accident to lessen the space and impact between the headrest and head to help reduce the risk of neck, head, or spine injuries. Seven advanced airbags come standards, such as driver-side knee blocker airbag, supplemental front, rear side-curtain airbags, and front seat-mounted side airbags. The Crumple Zone helps grasp the impact energy, and it redirects it away from the passengers to reduce the risk of injury.

The Basic Limited Warranty provides bumper-to-bumper coverage for 3-year/ 36,000-Miles. It’s also transferable, and it also includes towing. Most vehicles come with roadside assistance service with the 5-year/100,000-Mile. Service contracts are backed up by FCA US LLC.
