The Dodge Grand Caravan didn’t earn the moniker of “Canada’s best-selling minivan” for the past 35 years by being a slouch. After all, if you’re looking for a minivan, you’re looking for space, safety and comfort—all features the Grand Caravan has in spades. But don’t just take our word for it! Let’s pit our Grand Caravan against the Honda Odyssey, and see how it stands up.

Ain’t Life Grand?
Breaking down the numbers, you can see the Dodge Grand Caravan has the edge in most categories. Sure, the 2019 Honda Odyssey has us beat a bit on fuel economy, due to their 9-speed transmission—we’re not too proud to admit it. But we’ve got them beat on overall speed and strength, with the edge in horsepower thanks to our 3.6L Pentastar™ VVT V6 engine. Add in almost 100 extra litres of total cargo space, and a huge difference in towing capacity, and the 2019 Grand Caravan has that most important element of a minivan; the ability to carry more. More family, more cargo, a heavier trailer. You name it. Plus, there’s just no comparison in price.
