The Grand Caravan: The Ultimate Family Vehicle

Minivans are a vehicle built for hauling—perfect for those who have young children, or personal belongings like sports equipment or large items to haul. Minivans are perfect when taking road trips and daily treks around town. 

For their ability to move people and things, minivans have long been praised as the best cars for families. However, the vehicles have also caught the eyes of retirees for some of the same reasons: easy access, high seating positions, and lots of passenger and cargo space.

Buyers looking for a new car should consider the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan at Melloy Dodge. It's not only one of the best cars for families, but its capabilities are attracting others.

Seating and capacity
The minivan can seat up to seven passengers. Its cargo area measures 33 cubic feet but increases to 143.8 when all of the seats are lowered into the floor using the Stow ‘n Go system.

All 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan come with a 3.6-liter V6 engine. It kicks out 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque and works with an automatic transmission.
