The Grand Caravan minivan will face a discount in the next year or two. However, the 2021 Dodge Grand Caravan will continue with its sales outside the United States. We’ve already written about the possible discount of this iconic van. The first speculations suggested the 2019 model will be the last one.
However, the 2020 Grand Caravan is here, which raises a couple of questions. Now, the latest reports are saying the 2021 Grand Caravan will hit the markets. This time, outside the U.S. Moreover, the 2021 model won’t introduce any significant changes and upgrades.
2021 Grand Caravan Changes
Just like the Ford and some other automakers, FCA also plans to kill most of its car and minivan lineup. Basically, everything that isn’t a crossover-SUV or a pickup truck will be gone soon. The same destiny awaits the new 2021 Dodge Grand Caravan. Luckily, we are talking exclusively about the North American market. This minivan won’t introduce so many changes once it arrives.
The current model already looks sharp and good-looking. On the other hand, few visual tweaks would be more than welcome. Front part sports large headlamps, and the fog lights are almost as brand-new. The grille hosts beautiful chrome finishes, and it looks genuinely modern. The rear section is also intact, just like the side profile and wheel options.
Like its predecessor, the 2021 Dodge Grand Caravan will also offer a room for seven passengers. The number of upgrades is minimal. Whatsoever, the minivan will only get a couple of updates, such as a new infotainment system. Furthermore, we could see two optional driver-assistance features. The cabin layout and overall design are intact.
Grand Caravan offers the right level of comfort and an ample interior room. It is a perfect vehicle for larger families and longer trips. Upper trim levels are providing high-end materials and additional chrome accents. Leather upholstery is optional on the base model and standard on the range-topping trim level.
Reliable Engine Option
The approaching 2021 Dodge Grand Caravan is offering the same 3.6-liter V6. However, this isn’t a bad thing at all. It is one of the most reliable engines the FCA could offer at the moment. The Pentastar V6 is producing 284 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. This unit powers most of the Jeep’s latest vehicles, as well.
It provides superb ride quality, and it is fuel-efficient. 17 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway are reasonable figures for the minivan segment. A 3.6-liter comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission and optional 4WD setup.
2021 Dodge Grand Caravan Price and Release Date
The price of the all-new 2021 Dodge Grand Caravan starts at $27,500. Upper trim levels will cost over $30,000 and up to $42,000. This minivan will go on sale in the second half of 2020. Interestingly, 2021 Grand Caravan will arrive in Canada.
However, its journey inside the U.S. is over. We don’t know for how long will Grand Caravan live. After all, Chrysler is introducing a new “Voyager” minivan, besides its Pacifica model.
