2016 Dodge Grand Caravan Exterior

While the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan has the distinct look of a minivan, its exterior styling is more sophisticated than you would expect. Standard 17-inch steel wheels, accent body side molding, and Daytime Running Lights give the Grand Caravan a touch of class, while this minivan’s sculpted body lines reflect Dodge’s traditional standard. Dodge has even brought its usual cross-shaped grille to give its minivan a slightly aggressive look.
