2020 Dodge Grand Caravan Performance Review


Performance: 5.6

The 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan has a potent V6 engine and a fairly composed ride, but many of its rivals are more refined. Also, competitors are easier to maneuver than this Dodge.

  • "While the six-speed transmission suffers a little gear envy with the eight-, nine-, and 10-speed automatics offered by competitors, it shifts smoothly and rarely makes a fuss, the exception being its reluctance to downshift during passing maneuvers." -- Car and Driver
  • "Still, every other minivan is more refined and comfortable to drive, usually handling better, as well." -- Autotrader (2019)
  • "The Dodge Grand Caravan isn't exactly exciting to drive, but that shouldn't be a surprise considering the segment it's in. … These vehicles are for ferrying family and friends, not tempting fate or testing the local authorities. Those caveats out of the way, we can at least attest to the Grand Caravan minivan's power. Its standard V6 provides good straight-line acceleration, so you needn't fear that freeway onramp." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)

Acceleration and Power

With a 283-horsepower 3.6-liter V6, the Grand Caravan has one of the most powerful engines in the minivan class. That said, this Dodge doesn't accelerate as quickly as several other minivans, and its engine is noisy at higher speeds. It comes with a six-speed automatic transmission that occasionally has to hunt for the appropriate gear.

The Grand Caravan delivers 17 mpg in city and 25 mpg on the highway, which is a little low for a minivan.

  • "Although of pedestrian pedigree, the Grand Caravan's engine emits a surprisingly baritone growl when the driver is deep into the throttle. Sadly, the exhaust note doesn't translate into surprising performance, as the Grand Caravan returned the slowest zero-to-60-mph time of all the recent minivans we've tested." -- Car and Driver
  • "With a strong horsepower rating, it also has more than enough power to get out of its own way." -- Autotrader (2019)
  • "The Grand Caravan is adequate from a performance perspective, which is all you really need from a minivan. Though it does little truly wrong from behind the wheel, it lacks refinement in both its powertrain and suspension tuning relative to its competition." -- Edmunds (2019)

Handling and Braking

The Grand Caravan delivers a solid ride with little body lean, and its suspension mitigates bumps when driving over uneven pavement. Yet most class rivals have softer rides and are easier to park. Front-wheel drive is standard.

  • "Body roll is managed admirably for a top-heavy vehicle, and the Grand Caravan feels poised through corners and relaxed when cruising." -- Car and Driver
  • "… every other minivan is more refined and comfortable to drive, usually handling better, as well." -- Autotrader (2019)
  • "One area the Grand Caravan isn't so grand is maneuverability. Its massive size and wide turning radius don't make for graceful parking-lot maneuvers." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
