2020 Dodge Grand Caravan Overview
Is the 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan a Good Used Minivan?
The 2020 Grand Caravan is not a very good used minivan. Though it has a powerful engine and convenient folding Stow’ n Go seats, this Dodge lags rivals in most areas. It has a stiff ride, an outdated infotainment system, and a low-rent cabin. If you want advanced safety features, look elsewhere because the Grand Caravan has a rearview camera, and that’s it. It’s also lacking popular infotainment features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and basics like Bluetooth and USB ports do not come standard.
For a minivan with a classier interior and more safety features, check out the 2020 Honda Odyssey. Another rival worth looking into is the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica, which offers all-wheel drive and has a more enjoyable ride than the Grand Caravan.

Which Used Dodge Grand Caravan Trim Is Right for Me?
The 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan is available in three trims: SE, SE Plus, and SXT. All come with a 3.6-liter V6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. We don’t recommend the Grand Caravan, but if you’re going to get one, skip the bare-bones base trim and look for an SE Plus, which gains second-row Stow’ n Go seats, Bluetooth, and a USB port.
- Dodge Grand Caravan SE: Standard features in the SE trim include third-row Stow’ n Go seats, cloth upholstery, tri-zone manual climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, remote keyless entry, a rearview camera, a 6.5-inch touch screen, and a six-speaker stereo.
- Dodge Grand Caravan SE Plus: The SE Plus trim adds second-row Stow’ n Go seats, premium cloth upholstery, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, satellite radio, Bluetooth, a USB port, voice command, and fog lights.
- Dodge Grand Caravan SXT: The top-of-the-line SXT trim gains leather upholstery with suede inserts, a power liftgate, and power-sliding rear doors. It’s available with heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

For its certified pre-owned cars, Dodge extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years from the original sale date or 100,000 miles. CPO vehicles also get a three-month/3,000-mile Maximum Coverage Care warranty. Additional benefits include:

2020 Dodge Grand Caravan Versus the Competition
2020 Dodge Grand Caravan vs. 2020 Honda Odyssey
The 2020 Honda Odyssey blows the Grand Caravan out of the water in pretty much all aspects. The Odyssey has more cargo space than the Grand Caravan, a more luxurious and comfortable cabin, and an impressive number of available safety and infotainment features, including blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The Odyssey also has a smooth ride and responsive handling for a minivan, and it gets better fuel economy than the Grand Caravan. The Honda will likely cost more than the Dodge, but it’s the ideal vehicle.

2020 Dodge Grand Caravan vs. 2020 Chrysler Pacifica
The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica is a much better minivan than the Grand Caravan. It offers a smoother ride, a much nicer cabin, available all-wheel drive, and a good variety of safety and technology features. Both minivans have seats that can fold into the floor to access the maximum cargo space, and both vans have similar mpg ratings. Like the Odyssey, the Pacifica will probably cost you more to purchase and maintain, but it’s the better minivan.

How Many People Does the 2020 Grand Caravan Seat?
The 2020 Grand Caravan seats seven people in three rows. The front-row seats are comfortable, but the second-and third-row Stow’ n Go seats could use more support and can become cumbersome to sit on for long rides.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this LATCH system the second-highest rating of Acceptable for its ease of use.
2020 Dodge Grand Caravan Features
The Grand Caravan doesn’t offer many infotainment features, and what it does have are unimpressive. The touch screen is small compared to rivals, its graphics are dated, and it’s slow to respond to inputs. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are unavailable, and there’s no USB port or Bluetooth in the base model, meaning smartphone integration options are limited. If you want a minivan with more tech features, check out the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica.
- Standard infotainment features: a 6.5-inch touch screen and a six-speaker stereo
- Available infotainment features: navigation, satellite radio, Bluetooth, a USB port, a rear-seat entertainment system, and DVD player, and wireless headphones
