The legendary Grand Caravan was a household name in the world of minivans for a long time but things have changed. The last generation was present for a full 13 years and it was eventually discontinued last year. We didn’t see any replacement, though the new Chrysler Voyager is about to take its role. It is a stripped-down version of the Pacifica, which features a simplified design, less equipment and, most importantly, significantly lower price. Another interesting fact about this model is that it is sold as Chrysler Grand Caravan in Canada. So, many wonder if we could see the 2022 Dodge Grand Caravan as well.
At this point, we don’t know anything about this and the officials are still quiet. Therefore, we can only speculate about this comeback. If it happens, we presume that things won’t be much different compared to Chrysler’s version.
2022 Dodge Grand Caravan Design
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2022 Dodge Grand Caravan is just speculation at this point. Still, we think we may predict how it would look like, if FCA is actually willing to bring it back. We presume that it would feature the same design as the Chrylser, which in terms of mechanics means a more modern layout compared to the recently discontinued model, especially when it comes to powertrain, transmission, suspension setup etc.
In terms of the styling, we wouldn’t expect to see too many changes either. The stying would be pretty much the same as in Chrysler’s iteration, which practically means a pre-facelift version of Pacifica. Of course, there is always room for exclusive details. We presume this model would come with a different front fascia, as well as with a few more minor tweaks.
We wouldn’t expect to see bigger changes in terms of the 2022 Dodge Grand Caravan interior either. Therefore, the dashboard would remain the same, with a modern design and a decent amount of soft-touch surfaces. Besides solid build quality, this cabin would also offer plenty of space. You may count on a capacity of seven, while all three rows would be adult-friendly. Impressive cargo volume is another thing we expect to see. We would count on something like 32 cubic feet of space behind its third row, 87.5 cubic feet of space behind the second row and a total of 140.5 cubic feet behind the first. Also, the famous Stow ‘n Go seats should be standard.
The list of standard features probably won’t be too long. We count on things like a 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, a USB port, and a six-speaker stereo.
2022 Dodge Grand Caravan Engine
Once again, we would expect to see any surprises. The 2022 Dodge Grand Caravan would feature a well-known 3.6-liter V6, which puts out around 287 horsepower and comes in pair with a 9-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain is strong and refined, and you may count on a good overall driving experience. Unfortunately, AWD models won’t be available. That feature would remain exclusive to Pacifica.
When it comes to fuel economy, you may count on something like 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, which is pretty good for the class.
2022 Dodge Grand Caravan Release Date and Price
The 2022 Dodge Grand Caravan is just a rumor for now, so we can’t say if it’s coming or not. If it arrives, we presume it would hit the market sometime late in the year, eventually in the first half of 2022. The base price would go around 27.000 dollars, we believe. The competition in the segment is pretty familiar. Some of the key players are Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, Kia Carnival etc.
