2008 Dodge Grand Caravan

Arriving the fall of 2007, but on review during the Chicago Auto Show in February, is the 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan. This is the 5th-generation of Chrysler Group minivans, and for ’08, receives updated exterior and interior design. Dodge presents two models: the Grand Caravan SE and Grand Caravan SXT, and a total of 3 aluminum V-6 engines. These include a new 240 horsepower, 4.0-liter, a 3.8-liter that produces 198 horses or a 3.3-liter flex-fuel-capable (FFV) that develops 170 horsepower. The first two engines come with a 6-speed transaxle, and the flex-fuel V-6 connects to a 4-speed transaxle. Chrysler Group has sold more than 1,330,000 flex-fuel minivans since 1998. Three distinct seating configurations are available for ’08. First, a 2nd-row bench seat with 2nd-row covered storage bins; next, a 3rd-row fold-in-the-floor seating, and new for ’08, Swivel ’n Go 2nd-row seats. Swivel ‘n Go allows the 2nd-row seats to revolve 180 degrees and face the 3rd-row, plus, includes a removable table that installs between the two rows.
