Finding the perfect minivan for you and your family can be a daunting challenge. You want a vehicle that combines performance, comfort, safety, and the latest technology. At North York Chrysler, we are always looking for new ways to put our loyal customers in the perfect vehicle. In order to help you make the right choice, we thought it would be helpful to compare the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan with one of its competitors the 2018 Toyota Sienna. We hope this blog will make it easier to pick the right minivan to fit your lifestyle.


2018 Dodge Grand Caravan

This dynamic minivan from Dodge is available in four trim levels and six bold exterior colours, including IndiGo Blue which is new for 2018. The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan offers a great deal of performance thanks to the standard award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that produces 283 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 260 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,400 rpm. When combined with a 6-speed Autostick transmission you can expect as low as 9.4 L/100 km.

When it comes to safety, the Dodge Grand Caravan offers more than 55 available safety and security features including standard front seat-mounted side airbags, a driver-side knee blocker airbag, three-row side-curtain airbags, electronic stability control, tire-pressure monitoring, daytime running lights, ABS brakes, and remote keyless entry. You can also add the Safety Sphere Package, which includes ParkSense rear park assist, Blind-spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross Path detection system.

In order to keep you and your up to seven passengers comfortable and connected, the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan is packed with the latest standard and available features including:

  • 6.5-inch touchscreen radio with navigation
  • Leather upholstery
  • Heated front seats and second-row seats
  • Second-row Stow 'n Go bucket seats
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Nine-speaker audio system with SiriusXM satellite radio
  • Rear-seat entertainment system with DVD

Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan is that you get all these amazing benefits at an outstanding starting price around $24,000.


2018 Toyota Sienna

Available in six trim levels, the 2018 Toyota Sienna comes standard with a 3.5-liter V6 Engine, 8-speed automatic transmission, and seating for up to seven. You can expect as low as 12.5 L/100 km city and 8.9 L/100 km highway in fuel economy. This minivan comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense, eight airbags, and a four-speaker Entune Audio 3.0 with 7-inch touchscreen display. Other benefits of the Toyota Sienna include:

  • Bluetooth capability
  • Fabric seats
  • 60/40 fold down rear seat
  • All-season floor mats
  • Keyless entry
The starting price for the 2018 Toyota Sienna is around $35,000 and the top trim level comes in at over $50,000.


While each minivan offers some unique benefits, they have roughly the same engine power, safety features, seating, and fuel efficiency. The biggest difference between the two is price. The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan offers a whole lot more for a much lower price.
