Minivan vs. SUV

When you’re deciding between the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan and the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse, there’s one important difference—the former is a minivan, while the Chevy is considered to be in the large crossover SUV segment. A Dodge minivan is tremendously more versatile and family friendly thanks to 81 different seating configurations for your passenger and cargo needs. All seats can also be folded flat to the ground to open up the entire rear for storage. The 2017 Traverse is similar in that its seats can be flattened to accommodate cargo, but it hardly has the versatility of the Grand Caravan, with limited seating setups.

Performance and Fuel Efficiency

Despite its minivan classification, large diameter, and spacious dimensions, the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan still proves extremely efficient. In fact, its standard 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine promises up to 13.7 L/100km in the city and 9.4L/100km on the highway, which are highly impressive figures for a vehicle of this stature. The Grand Caravan also promises significant power at 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. The 2017 Chevrolet Traverse, on the other hand, musters only 10.6 L/100km on the highway, while generating a lesser 281 hp. All things considered, the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan ensures you get the best of both worlds on the road.
