2014 Dodge Grand Caravan
The 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan is Coming Soon
Pat McGrath Dodge Country, located just ten minutes west of Marion at 4610 Center Point Road in Cedar Rapids, is excited to say that the 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan is coming soon. The original minivan is still going strong after 30 years of service, and we’re sure that it will come with some new tricks for 2014. Here’s what we expect when this model arrives at our dealership in Cedar Rapids.
Big Changes or Small Changes?
It looked like the Grand Caravan might be in danger of ending its long run when the Town & Country, its upscale Chrysler sibling, got the axe this year — but the Grand Caravan will continue on. It’s about ready for a generational refresh, which would mean major changes, including the use of a new platform, new engine, new transmission, and probably a whole lot more.
It is uncertain whether or not 2014 will be the year for a generation change in the Caravan. Chrysler is rolling out a lot of new and radically revised cars for this model year already, and no announcement has been made about the 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan. On the other hand, with Dodge’s parent company in a transition to new models, it might be the perfect time for the Caravan to switch over. We think it’s a toss-up. Either way, the 2014 Grand Caravan probably won’t be available until the end of the 2013 calendar year.
Whatever happens, here are some of the biggest changes we’re expecting in the next edition of the Grand Caravan:
- An eight- or nine-speed automatic transmission will probably be standard equipment on the 2014 Grand Caravan.
- With consumers increasingly concerned with fuel economy, we expect that, when the Caravan does get a generation change, it will probably lose some weight and some girth.
- Neat features like adaptive cruise control and an advanced collision warning system will probably be available — or even standard — in all models.
