Dodge Grand Caravan: Getting Your First Car

Caravan is a minivan developed by Chrysler Group LLC and the vehicle was retailed under the Dodge brand. The vehicle was released in the year 1984 along with the nameplate variant- Plymouth Voyager. It was the most space efficient vehicle in 1984.

The long wheelbase version was released in the year 1987, and it was sold along with the short-wheelbase model. Later on, the short-wheelbase model was discontinued after 2007. Right from 2007, the minivan was under Grand Caravan videos. After 1987, the Grand Caravan received a major overhaul in the year 1991.

Other nameplate variants under the Caravan category include the Voyager,VW Routan, and Chrysler Town & Country. Chrysler manufactures the minivans in markets all over the world. Combining all the variants, minivans from Chrysler rank in 13th place worldwide.

For the current generation, Voyager and Chrysler Town and Country are treated as separate vehicles. However, there are speculations that all these vehicles will soon be sold under a single nameplate. You can see several standalone options available for the current generation.

The first and second generation models have exhibited reliability issues and they are especially upsetting with auto transmission, though the manual version works just fine.
