Dodge Celebrates 30 Years of Groovy Minivans

Dodge Grand Caravan

2013 Dodge Grand Caravan

A minivan will never be the sexiest car on the market. Nor will it ever be “cool”—not even hipsters have been able to fully wrap their ironic minds around the car of the soccer mom. But in business—as well as in family—sustained success and security are actually pretty cool. So, after thirty dependable years, it’s safe to say that the Dodge Grand Caravan is one of the coolest cars on the market.

Dodge introduced the Caravan in 1983 and now celebrates three whole decades of manufacturing minivans. Dodge even renamed the Caravan to the Grand Caravan back in 2008, rewarding the van for its longevity and dependability.

This year, Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep Dodge, in Rochester Hills, MI, releases the 2014 Grand Caravan, building on that rich thirty-year history to provide families with the best possible product. The 2014 edition of the Grand Caravan comes with tons of storage space, seats seven passengers very comfortably, achieves 283 horsepower, and nets 25 mpg on the highway.

Maybe the 2014 Dodge Caravan won’t win any awards for its sense of style and fashion. But thirty years of best-selling success speaks for itself. Come test drive the groovy Grand Caravan at Rochester Hills CJDR today.
