2017 Dodge Grand Caravan vs 2017 Kia Sedona
Crossovers and SUVs may be all the rage these days, but when it comes to driving a family-hauler that simply meets any vehicle need you could possibly think of for your family, it's still tough to beat a minivan. Models like the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan are equipped with all the latest technologies and amenities your family needs, but is Dodge's minivan option really your best option? Well, read on to find out for yourself as we match up the Grand Caravan vs the 2017 Kia Sedona.
A minivan is the type of vehicle you buy to last. You're going to keep this vehicle around for a long time, which means you're going to want to make sure it won't cost you in the long haul. Only the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan earned first place in KBB's 5-Year Cost to Own Award ranking for the minivan segment. The 2017 Sedona didn't even place, despite the fact that it actually has a higher starting MSRP than the Grand Caravan

Differences Between the 2017 Grand Caravan and 2017 Sedona
Let's talk for a second about that starting MSRP, though. The Sedona starts at an MSRP of nearly $1,000 more than the Grand Caravan. Surely it must come with some pretty incredible standard features not found on the Grand Caravan, right? Well, not exactly. In fact, the Grand Caravan comes standard with a number of things that are not standard on the Sedona. These include driver and passenger front armrests, a total of four 12-volt DC power outlets, a tire mobility kit, driver-side knee protection airbags, LED brake lights, an ignition disabling security system and heated side mirrors.
More features for less cost is great, but so is more power. More power is exactly what you'll get with the Grand Caravan. Its engine pumps out more horsepower and more torque than the engine under the Sedona's hood, plain and simple. The Grand Caravan also has superior cargo space.
As you can see, the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan is superior in a number of key areas when comparing it against the 2017 Kia Sedona, but be sure to reach out to us at Parks Motors to learn more.
