The 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan seven-passenger minivan received several updates, including larger wheels, standard daytime running lights, two new trim levels and new exterior paint colors. The Grand Caravan and the closely related Chrysler Town & Country compete against the Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey, Nissan Quest and Kia Sedona.
Priced from $21,395 as of April 2015, the Grand Caravan features the lowest base price among all minivans for sale in the United States. Seating for seven features Dodge's patented Stow'n'Go second-row seats, which fold flat into the floor while also allowing for extra out-of-sight storage while in the raised position. All models now come with 17-inch wheels instead of the 2014 model's 16-inch wheels.
Dodge introduced two new trim levels for the 2015 model year: the SE Plus and the SXT Plus. Based on the mid-level SE and upscale SXT, each features the options most often chosen by buyers of that trim level and visual accents grouped together in one package with an added cost of $1,000.
The SE Plus gets 17-inch, satin-finish aluminum wheels, body-color heated side mirrors, black cloth interior seating and trim with contrasting silver stitch work, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The package also adds piano-black interior accents, power windows for the second and third rows, Bluetooth streaming audio, voice controls and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
SXT Plus buyers gain most of the features from the SE Plus as well as polished aluminum 17-inch wheels, automatic headlights, foglamps, and chrome exterior and interior trim. Leatherette-and-suede seats replace the cloth seats found at lower trim levels, and the driver's seat gains 10-way power adjustability.
