Since the Dodge Grand Caravan’s birth 25 years ago, 65 minivan-firsts have led to more than 12 million Chrysler and Dodge minivans sold throughout the world, solidifying Chrysler’s leadership in the segment. For 2009, the Dodge Grand Caravan continues to set the mark in minivan value adding more standard features and offering new minivan-first safety and security features to the minivan that started it all. With more than 40 new or improved features from the previous generation, Dodge Grand Caravan is the best all-around vehicle for young families.
The Dodge Grand Caravan now includes more of the features customers want and expect in the competitive minivan segment. Standard on the Dodge Grand Caravan SE for 2009 is the industry-exclusive Stow ‘n Go® seating and storage system with Stain Repel Seat Fabric, power second- and third-row windows, sunscreen glass, electroluminescent gauge cluster with tachometer, cruise control and floor mats.
The Dodge Grand Caravan is first in the minivan segment to feature the all-new Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path advance safety systems.
The all-new Blind Spot Monitoring System (BSM) detects a possible unseen vehicle when changing lanes. The Rear Cross Path System (RCP) aids the driver any time the vehicle is in Reverse and warns if any traffic is moving toward the vehicle. Both systems utilize dual ultra-wideband radar sensors that notify the driver via an audible chime and a visible icon on outside mirrors.
Chrysler continues to be the minivan leader, a core segment it relentlessly improves upon year after year. Innovative features including the segment’s only Swivel ‘n GoTM seating with center table and dual nine-inch screen DVD system with a minivan-first swiveling third-row monitor (late availability) and available uconnect studios SIRIUS Satellite Radio and SIRIUS Backseat TVTM, take mobile entertainment to a new level. With comfortable second-row captain’s chairs that rotate 180 degrees to face the third row and a removable table that installs between, friends and family may play games and have conversations; face-to-face dinner on-the-go just became more meaningful.
With two distinct seating options, three efficient powertrain options, advanced safety features, including the new Blind Spot Monitoring accident avoidance system, EVIC with premium steering wheel controls, uconnect gps with a 30-gigabyte hard drive and real-time traffic monitoring, a premium center console that slides rearward to reach second-row passengers, vast storage solutions compiled with industry-leading functionality, the Dodge Grand Caravan truly is the perfect family room on wheels.
