The current generation of this minivan has been around for a way too long time, so it’s no wonder that rumors about its redesign have been circulating around for years. Unfortunately, things remained unchanged for a very long time. The current generation came in 2007, which seems way too long for today’s industry standards, even though we are talking about a minivan.
Latest reports suggest that the 2019 year model will be the last one of the current generation. So, expect a lot of novelties with the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan. It looks like it will be a completely new vehicle, with a little bit different characteristics, compared to the current version.
- Completely redesigned
- Good ride quality
- Efficient engines
- Possible hybrid option
- Could be smaller than before
- Tough competition
It’s no secret that the company prepares a new minivan. According to our reliable sources, the new model will be ready pretty soon. So, there rumors about the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan sound quite likely. Without any doubt, the new model will share a lot of parts with the fresher Chrysler Pacifica. Two models will ride on the same platform and feature many identical mechanical parts.
Still, some reports suggest that the other vehicle will be smaller. If this happens, the company may leave out the “Grand” in its name, sources say. In any case, count on a modern vehicle, with far better driving characteristics and comfort.
Much of the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan’s interior depends on the size. As we already mentioned, there is a possibility to see a new generation smaller than before. In that case, we would probably see just two rows of seats. In case the new model keeps a similar size, count on a typical three-row configuration.
Anyway, the cabin will be completely new. First of all, count on the much better quality of materials. Also, the dashboard will come with much more style and plenty of the latest tech goodies. This includes advanced safety systems as well. After all, this minivan will compete with pretty advanced models like Honda Oddysey and Toyota Sienna.
Once again, it all depends on the size of the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan. If we are about to see a smaller vehicle, a standard four-cylinder unit would be a good fit. Some reports suggest a possibility to see a new 2.0-liter turbo-four, which would be tuned to around 260 horsepower.
On the other side, large size would require bigger displacement. So, count on a familiar 3.6-liter V6, probably with around 300 horsepower. Also, it won’t be a surprise if the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan borrows a hybrid powertrain from Pacifica as well.
2020 Dodge Grand Caravan Release Date and Price
Despite various reports about the new model, we are actually still waiting to hear something more specific from the officials. In any case, we are pretty sure that starting price won’t go over $30,000.
