Auburn Hills, Mich. Sep 1, 2015  -  For 2016, the Dodge Grand Caravan – the best-selling, most awarded minivan ever and the most affordable minivan in the United States – continues its tradition of offering customers style, versatility and added features at an outstanding value.
 
The Plus Packages, available on Dodge Grand Caravan SE and SXT models, introduced for the 2015 model year, continue for the 2016 model year to deliver the most popular features and options at a considerable value for customers.
 
The Dodge Grand Caravan SE Plus features unique 17-inch Satin Carbon aluminum wheels and body-color heated exterior mirrors. Unique interior appointments include silver accent stitching and piano black accents throughout, black cloth seats, a black leather-wrapped steering wheel, black leather-wrapped shift knob, black headliner and overhead console, bright heating and air conditioning trim bezels, power second- and third-row windows, and the Uconnect Handsfree Group, which features SiriusXM Radio with a one-year subscription, Bluetooth streaming audio and voice command, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
 
The Dodge Grand Caravan SXT Plus builds on the SXT model and includes standard power sliding doors, power liftgate, super center console and much more. The SXT Plus adds premium appointments, including unique 17-inch polished aluminum wheels with Granite Crystal pockets, bright chrome roof rack, bright window trim moldings, fog lamps and automatic headlamps.
 
On the inside, families are treated to all of the ingenious versatility of the Grand Caravan. Details include black Torino leatherette seats with premium suede inserts and silver accent stitching, power 10-way driver’s seat, piano black accent trim bezels, bright chrome accents, Uconnect handsfree voice command with Bluetooth streaming audio, SiriusXM Radio with a one-year subscription and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
 
The Blacktop Package, an exclusive customized blacked-out appearance first introduced in 2014, continues to be available on the Grand Caravan SE Plus, SXT and SXT Plus models for 2016. The Blacktop Package includes 17-inch polished aluminum wheels with Gloss Black pockets, a Gloss Black grille, black headlamp bezels, an all-black interior, including headliner, door panels and console, unique black cloth seats and door trim panels with silver accent stitching, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with silver accent stitching and a leather shift knob. Grand Caravan SXT models with the Blacktop Package also include fog lamps. Models equipped with the Blacktop Package are available in Granite Crystal, Billet Silver, Brilliant Black, Redline, Red Pearl (late availability) and Bright White.
 
The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is available in four models that fit almost any lifestyle and budget – the AVP, SE, SXT and R/T – with innovative design and features inherent in every model.
 
Unmatched versatility
Available on the AVP and standard on the SE, SXT and R/T is the industry-exclusive Super Stow ’n Go seating with easy one-touch operation and more comfortable seats. The second-row Stow ’n Go seats in the Dodge Grand Caravan can be effortlessly stowed in less than five seconds with just one hand. And when not stowed, only Dodge Grand Caravan allows secure storage in the second-row in-floor bins. Standard on all Grand Caravan models is the 60/40 split-folding third-row Stow ’n Go seating. Only Grand Caravan can so effortlessly be transformed from hauling seven passengers to hauling cargo in a matter of seconds.
 
Award-winning engine
At the heart of the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transaxle. This engine was named one of “Ward’s 10 Best Engines” three years in a row. In the Grand Caravan, the Pentastar V-6 delivers a best-in-class 283 horsepower, 260 lb.-ft. of torque and best-in-class 3,600-lbs. towing.

Dodge Grand Caravan also features a driver-selectable fuel economizer mode. Drivers can change the transaxle shift schedule with the push of a button to maximize their fuel economy. In addition, lower-rolling resistance tires, a spoiler and reduced mechanical drag all contribute to Dodge Grand Caravan’s class-leading aerodynamics and efficient fuel economy. Even with the potent V-6 powertrain, Grand Caravan still manages to deliver a generous fuel economy rating of 25 miles per gallon (mpg) on the highway, which translates to 500 miles on a single tank of fuel.
 
Dodge Grand Caravan R/T is where versatility meets performance and attitude. Uniquely designed both inside and out, the R/T features a suspension tuned for sporty handling, while still providing a comfortable ride. The shocks were re-tuned to work in conjunction with the higher rate springs at all four corners. These changes allow for quicker responses to driver input and tighter handling characteristics.
 
Exterior details
Grand Caravan’s design is intended to convey the dynamic driving nature of the vehicle. A front fascia sports the Dodge signature “split crosshair” grille and quad headlamps, which combine to give the face of the 2016 Grand Caravan a sporty feel. A sculpted rear fascia and liftgate and rear “ring of fire” LED tail lamps complete the look from front to back.
 
Another innovation from the minivan leader is the Stow ‘n Place roof rack system that lets owners stow the roof bows in the side rails when they’re not using them and snap them easily into place when needed. The ability to stow the roof bows when they’re not being used means less aerodynamic drag and wind buffeting and better overall efficiency.
 
Premium interior
Dodge Grand Caravan owners will step inside to a world-class interior. A modern, one-piece instrument panel is intuitive for the customer with instinctive ergonomics and large gauges, with premium bright accents and soft-touches throughout. An available “super” center console provides clever functionality and storage for the active commuter as well as easy driver/passenger access with a pass-through storage space for larger items, like a purse.
 
A three-spoke steering wheel with integrated controls for audio, navigation and speed control also offers a minivan-first heated steering wheel option. The best storage in the segment rounds out the improved interior.
 
More than 55 available safety, security and technology features keep families safe and connected
Available safety and security features include standard front seat-mounted side air bags, a driver-side knee blocker air bag, three-row side-curtain air bags, electronic stability control (ESC), tire-pressure monitoring, daytime running lights (DRLs) and remote keyless entry. The available Safety Sphere Package of features includes ParkSense rear park assist system, Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection system and rain-sensitive wipers.
 
With class-leading cargo capacity, best-in-class power and segment-exclusive Super Stow ’n Go, the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan truly is the industry’s most affordable and most versatile cargo and passenger vehicle.
