2014 Dodge Grand Caravan Overview

Is the 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan a Good Used Minivan?

The 2014 Grand Caravan may not be the best minivan, but it could be a smart purchase depending on your priorities. If you're on a tight budget, you can get a Grand Caravan with few standard features for less than any other van. If an upscale cabin or a plush ride is important, there are better choices in the class.

Used 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan Performance and Interior

Under the hood of the 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan is a Pentastar V6 engine that puts out 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, making it the most powerful engine available among 2014 minivans. It gets the Grand Caravan moving with gumption, though noise is a problem when accelerating hard. The standard six-speed automatic transmission also delivers uneven shifts. Fuel economy estimates are slightly below-average for the class, at 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.

The Grand Caravan also has a harsh ride. When driving around town, you can feel most bumps and shocks in the road, but that settles down on long highway trips. Steering and handling is decent for a minivan, with poise around turns and strong brakes.

The 3-row Dodge Grand Caravan seats seven. Cloth upholstery is standard, but leather seats are available. Other upgrades you may find include a power-adjustable driver's seat and heated first- and second-row seats. There are three complete sets of LATCH connectors for securing child seats. The Grand Caravan sticks out for its versatile cabin – available Stow 'n Go seating allows all the rear seats to fold flat into the floor, and the last row can also be turned around completely to face backward. Passenger space and comfort is good in all seating positions, though taller drivers may not have enough legroom.

The Grand Caravan comes with few standard features, apart from manual air conditioning and a basic stereo setup with an audio jack. Available equipment includes tri-zone automatic climate control, rain-sensing windshield wipers, satellite radio, HD Radio, a nine-speaker sound system, a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, a 6.5-inch touch-screen infotainment system, navigation, two USB ports, Bluetooth, a rear-seat DVD or Blu-Ray entertainment system, a power liftgate, remote start, and voice command activation. Physical dashboard controls are laid out intuitively, but the available touch-screen system makes it cumbersome to perform some audio commands.

How Safe Is the Grand Caravan?

The 2014 Grand Caravan received four out of five stars overall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with four stars in the frontal crash and rollover tests and five stars in the side crash. At the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Grand Caravan earned the highest rating of Good in four individual evaluations. However, it received the lowest possible rating in the small overlap front test, which simulates the driver's-side front corner of a vehicle colliding with a tall, skinny object like a telephone pole.

There are no standard driver assistance or advanced safety features, but some models may have a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, and/or rear cross traffic alert.

Should I Consider Another Used Grand Caravan?

The 2014 Grand Caravan is part of the vehicle's fifth generation, which began with the 2008 model year. Aside from some minor shuffling of equipment, the Grand Caravan saw no major changes in the couple of model years prior to 2014. You can likely save money and get a similar vehicle by shopping for an older model.

Which Used Dodge Grand Caravan Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Grand Caravan is available in four trim levels: SE/American Value Package (AVP), SE, SXT, and R/T. Skip the base American Value Package model, as it offers almost no modern features. The best value for your money will probably be an SXT model; it comes with a power liftgate, power-sliding doors, and the Stow 'n Go seats, but you'll still have to search around for features like leather seats, a touch-screen system, navigation, or a rearview camera. Features like satellite radio, heated seats, and parking sensors are only optional even in the top R/T trim.  

Because of the Grand Caravan's below-average reliability, you may want to consider a certified pre-owned model. For certified pre-owned Dodge vehicles, the original new-car powertrain warranty is extended to seven years or 100,000 miles. Dodge CPO vehicles also get a three-month/3,000-mile Maximum Coverage Care warranty. There are restrictions related to mileage and models, so read the Dodge warranty page carefully.

2014 Dodge Grand Caravan and Other Minivans to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan or 2014 Chrysler Town & Country?

The 2014 Chrysler Town & Country is a corporate cousin of the Grand Caravan, so there are a few similarities. Both vans share the same powerful V6 engine but suffer meager performance due to their stiff rides. The Chrysler, though, should be the better overall buy. It has average reliability (compared to the Dodge's below-average score), and it’s more upscale in its interior and features. The Chrysler comes standard with amenities like leather seats, an infotainment system, satellite radio, and a rearview camera. That all comes at a cost, though, as the Town & Country's average prices and predicted ownership expenses are thousands more than the Grand Caravan.

Which Is Better: 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan or 2014 Toyota Sienna?

The 2014 Toyota Sienna performs well in almost every area. It has above-average reliability and good safety scores, even though its cost of ownership and average prices are higher than most rivals. The Sienna delivers commendable performance courtesy of a strong V6 engine and smooth transmission. It also rides comfortably over most surfaces and is the only minivan available with all-wheel drive. Inside, the Sienna features seating for eight, with an extremely comfortable third-row and available reclining second-row lounge seats. It's hard to beat the Sienna if you're looking for a spacious and well-rounded family vehicle.

Which Is Better: 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan or 2014 Kia Sedona?

There are few reasons to consider a 2014 Kia Sedona over the Grand Caravan – or any other minivan in the class, for that matter. The Kia gets the lowest possible rating for reliability, and it has an outdated cabin with unimpressive materials. The van does feature a decently powered V6 engine, but that's the norm for the class. Otherwise, the Sedona delivers mundane handling and fails to stick out in most areas.
