2012 Dodge Grand Caravan- Good Looks, Great Price
Published October 10, 2012
There is a lot to be said about the appeal of minivans, or their lack thereof. Sure they’re convenient when transporting a large number of people without having to load them into larger modes of mass transit such as a bus, but for the most part they are unattractive. They serve their purpose wonderfully but let’s face it, who in their right mind would want to drive one all the time. That might be why a lot of people lean towards SUVs a lot more than minivans. However, there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel for those that simply cannot escape a minivan purchase.
That is where the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan comes to the rescue, and after all the oohs and aahs we can get down to what makes this minivan a great choice over its rivals. First off, Dodge makes some very tough looking cars and thankfully they did not tone it down with their minivan. Actually, it is the strong, tough design that saves it from mingling in oblivion with its competitors. Viewed from the side, its exterior is not that of a minivan, but closer to the boxy design of a sports utility vehicle. It is the tale of the minivan that did not want to be one, but since it is what it is it decided to be the best looking one on the market. The front grille paired with the fog lights do a lot to heighten the van’s awesome quotient.
Getting What You Paid for.
The 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan starts off around $21,000 for the base AVP model which comes sufficiently equipped to not upgrade to a more expensive trim.Everything from remote keyless entry, to audio controls on the steering wheel, and great storage capacity can be found on the AVP model. It appears that Dodge in no way shortchanged the consumer when designing this vehicle.
However if you are looking for additional features you have four other models to choose from. Reaching mid-price at $26,500 for the SXT trim you get added features such as power sliding doors and liftgate as well as a 9-inch screen to entertain passengers in the back seat.
For the ultimate minivan driving experience you can opt for the 2012 Dodge Caravan
With black leather seating for the first and second rows and an 11-channel amplifier pumping out 506 watts this sportier, amped up version is sure to convert even the most obstinate minivan loather into a believer. This fully equipped model is priced close to $30,000 which is a lot less than you would pay for a full size SUV. The added features already included in the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan
would inevitably add to the price tag
on a pricier sports utility vehicle. Ultimately, this is a great minivan. In fact, since I once found this type of car so hideous I never really considered it for purchase. Comparing features and pricing though, the 2012 Dodge Caravan
makes a lot of sense.
