Grand Caravan: Style, Function, Driveability

Style meets functionality, with appeal for all ages too. The new 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan at Melloy Dodge has everything that’s wanted in a family vehicle, without sacrificing what both parents want; a reliable form of transportation with the spice of Dodge!

The 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan gets an estimated 17 MPG in the city and a whopping 25 MPG on the highway, all while having a powerful V6 engine with 283 horsepower. Its 17-inch wheels make for a comfortable ride, will help gas mileage and improve traction, and can still take a bump or two along the way! Not to mention its halogen lamps for better and more clear vision during night driving, and it’s heated side mirrors to help prevent frost in the winter, always a plus when transporting your precious cargo.

Inside our new 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan, you will find room for 7 passengers, so those soccer game hauls will be a breeze! Plus, when you aren’t hauling the whole team, you have super store n’ go seats, which fold into the floorboard to allow you tons of cargo space, more than 143 cubic feet to be exact! The rear doors and tailgate have open assist technology, allowing for easy opening and closing of your doors with little effort! Those super store n’ go seats and power assist doors are also a great and easy way to turn this family van into an excellent vehicle for handicapped drivers!

With all family vehicles, safety is always important too, and the 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan does not sacrifice safety! With 7 airbags, including front multistage airbags, that deploy on impact and its 8 crush zones, the force and impact of the crash are directed away from the passengers. Add in the rear-camera view when backing up, roll-resistance tires, active front head suspension, and electronic stability control, and you have the peace of mind that your family will be safer then they have ever been.

All in all, the 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan has something for everyone with its unique versatility. It can be utilized to the fullest of its abilities, and it has the horsepower and style every buyer wants!
