It reaches its end in the US and in Canada, it is only available in the middle of 2017. It was replaced by the Chrysler Pacifica officially. But, it seems that it still has a life. Some strong rumors mentioned about the new model that will be presented soon and it will be the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan. We only found a little information about the car, but surely it has more different look compared to the previous model. It will be a unique minivan for the future market.
Do you know the Durango? It seems that the new 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan will be similar to that car, especially for the 7 or 8 seats. Before, the Grand Caravan was known well as a minivan, but its new design will make it different with the crossover-liked design that will remind you to Durango. The difference is the company still keeps its chassis with the front wheel drive for standard and transverse engine. It will be a cheap crossover that can support eight people in its base design. As we know that the previous style has a simple and utilitarian look, but it wouldn’t be the highlight for this futuristic minivan. It will have larger bodywork without sliding rear doors, and it has more muscular shape. The front has few design traits borrowed from Charger to make it more interesting. It is also expected to have a larger footprint.
The demand for minivans and seven-seat crossovers are not too high, but still good. Many people choose the new 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan because of the spacious cabin design and the affordable price. It should be much more different from before because the strong rival is quite familiar too, the Honda Pilot.
