2011-2012 dodge grand caravan
Dodge Grand Caravan has had major revisions for the 2011 model year, these include better styling, a new more powerful and better fuel economy engine, also a newly upgraded suspension, and a reworked soft touch interior. We know that buyers will really appreciate the better fuel economy, better driving feel and the new interior with great materials, better seats, and redesigned gauges.
Up front, it has a sportier fascia with mesh inserts, a revised version of the Dodge crosshair grille, a slightly reshaped hood and quad headlights. At the rear there is a body color roof spoiler, the fascia is new, there a step plate with chrome trim, and the taillights add LEDs. Sixteen-inch wheels are standard.
A great array of entertainment features will help keep members of the family occupied. They include three types of hard-drive radio, Sirius satellite radio, rear DVD entertainment, a wireless cell phone link, and more. An optional new console provides fantastic functionality and storage, as well easy driver and passenger access with a pass-through storage space for bigger items, like purses. Pieces in the console glow an ambient blue/green, which allows passengers to locate items they are looking for in the dark.
The new 3.6-liter V6 is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, You can definitely feel the power in the Pentastar engine, however, drive normally and the engine will rarely pass 2,000 rpm, except perhaps when merging onto an expressway; shifting is barely perceptible. Push your foot down hard however, especially with the "Eco" button off, and the transmission will quickly get you to the power band of the Pentastar. This gives the 2011 Caravan a far sportier feel than it's predecessors.
Fuel Economy is much better than most other minivans in its class. One of the major changes to the Caravan has been the "Fuel Economizer Switch," which is a button on the dash that lets drivers change the transmission shift points in order to better economize fuel.
Standard safety and security includes front-seat mounted side air bags, driver side knee-blocker air bag, supplemental three-row side-curtain air bags, electronic stability control, and tire pressure monitoring, as well as remote keyless-entry. Optional Safety Sphere package of features includes a rear back-up camera, blind spot monitoring, ParkSense® rear park assist system and rear cross path detection system, and rain-sensitive wipers, as well as automatic headlamps.
The significant changes made in both mechanical and design to the 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan are all for the better. It has a much more pleasant feel inside, handles much better, is also quieter and has more engine power with better fuel economy. This Grand Caravan offers amazing versatility with one of the most convenient cabins ever. The flexible seating, major abundance of storage, and fantastic entertainment options can make life easier for everyone who ever thought they would benefit from a van.
