Dodge built the first minivans back in 1984 and continues the series in 2005 with new concepts. Versions this year include the Caravan regular-length wheelbase trimmed as SE and SXT or long-wheelbase Grand Caravan in SE and the SXT with front-wheel-drive (FWD) or AWD formats.

The entry edition Caravan has a 2.4-liter in-line four-pack engine rated at 150-hp, but there are two V6 engines available at 3.3-liters for 180-hp or 3.8-liters with 215-hp.

Safety gear increases with an inflatable air bag positioned forward of the driver's knees and a tire pressure monitor. And Chrysler's inventive Stow 'n Go seat plan works on this line with second and third tier seats folding into the floor and storage bins located below each chair when it's upright.
