What is the Best Family Van Model to Buy Near Tacoma?

The Dodge Caravan has been around for the last 35 years and has remained virtually unchanged.  The reason for this is obvious – because it works. If you are looking for the perfect family minivan option, then the Dodge Caravan is it.

The minivan’s features such as the Stow ‘n Go seating, fuel economizer, airbag options around the vehicle, and electronic stability control make this a great family vehicle.  The 2018 Dodge Caravan SXT carries all the security and safety features that have made this car so popular. This vehicle offers owners versatility and safety.


The V6, 3.6-liter engine packs enough horsepower to haul, tow and drives your most precious possession around town.  The engine drives on unleaded fuel and is incredibly powerful but safe. It will not throw you back in your seat when you drive off, but it does give you a smooth and comfortable ride on the road.

Road-tripping and family road trips are made easy with a towing capacity of 1 500 pounds.  With the Dodge Caravan, you can easily and safely tow anything from a camper, boat or snowmobiles.  The added safety feature of this vehicle is the Trailer Sway Control. Each model of the Dodge Grand Caravan comes standard with the Trailer Sway Control to help keep your goods secure and safe.  The system automatically takes corrective steps when it senses an extremely swaying trailer.

The all-speed traction control checks for wheel slip and provides the necessary traction for safe driving on road surfaces.  The traction control safety feature uses brake pressure and reduced engine power to help gain traction and stability.

Safety and security

What makes the Dodge Caravan the family vehicle of choice, is the standard safety and security features that come with all models of the Caravan.

The park view assist gives you a wide-angle look at the park area behind your vehicle.  Reverse parking is made safe and easy with the ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera 7 and uses gridlines on the screen to guide you perfectly into a parking space.

As the perfect family minivan, child safety is key.  The Dodge Caravan offers drivers an observation mirror to ensure that all rear passengers are safe and secure. The LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) makes sure the children’s seats are secure and easy to fit every time.  Also, the child protection door locks stop curious little hands from opening up the sliding door.

The Dodge Caravan ensure that everyone is safe with front and side airbags.  There is no less than seven airbags. The airbag system consists of front airbags for the driver and passenger, rear and front side-curtain airbags, front seat-mounted airbags and a driver’s airbag for the knee area.  High strength steel makes the frame of this vehicle rugged and sturdy.

The Dodge Caravan has long held the reputation as the safest and the best family van option.  The 2018 model maintains that reputation. A well-designed frame and safety features will ensure that your family is comfortable, safe and secure on all road trips – long or short.
