Auburn Hills, Mich. August 31, 2009 -

Dodge Grand Caravan continues to set the mark in the vibrant minivan segment. With more than 25 years of minivan-first innovations including the segment’s only Stow ‘n Go® and Swivel ’n Go™ seating and storage systems, SIRIUS Backseat TV™ with Nickelodeon, Disney Channel and Cartoon Network Mobile and rear-seat dual-DVD entertainment—the 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan is a family room on wheels.

A minivan-first innovation, and an exclusive in the segment is the Swivel ’n Go™ seating and storage system. Swivel ’n Go features second-row seats that swivel 180 degrees to face the third row, a removable table that installs between the two rows, in-floor covered storage bins and fold-in-the-floor third-row seating. Integrated child booster seats and a minivan-first dual nine-inch rear DVD entertainment system with swiveling third-row monitor and SIRIUS Backseat TV™ are also available with Swivel ’n Go.

Dodge Grand Caravan continues to be the only vehicle in the segment to feature Blind-spot Monitoring (BSM) and Rear Cross Path (RCP) accident-avoidance safety systems. BSM detects a possible unseen vehicle when changing lanes. RCP aids the driver any time the vehicle is in Reverse and warns if any traffic is moving toward the vehicle. Both systems utilize dual ultra-wideband radar sensors that notify the driver via an audible chime and a visible icon on exterior mirrors.

Best-in-class aerodynamics and a minivan-first six-speed automatic transmission provide 2010 Dodge minivans with efficient dynamics. A 4.0-liter V-6 aluminum engine offers unsurpassed fuel economy and the minivan-segment’s best combination of horsepower (251 hp / 189 kW) and torque (259 ft.-lb. / 350 N•m). With an EPA fuel economy rating of 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway, the powerful 4.0-liter engine gives customers the fuel economy they want and the power they expect. Paired with 17-inch aluminum wheels and a sport-tuned suspension, the 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan offers a spirited driving experience.
