Is the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan Right for You?

The 2017 Dodge Journey offers comfort at a reasonable price for anyone looking with a large family or a lot of friends along for the ride. Lovers of the automaker will love the classic styling and be satisfied with the overall quality of the vehicle.

 

 

The Dodge Journey made its debut in 2009 and unlike many other vehicles, it hasn’t undergone a whole lot of design changes through its different model years. That’s because the Dodge model of this particular vehicle was carefully thought out, so why alter something that was already great to begin with?

 

Some of the features that make the Journey and its predecessors great are the room and the capacity. The 2017 Dodge Journey is meant for long trips with lots of people.

The 2016 Dodge Durango

The 2016 Dodge Durango isn’t a carlike crossover, and it isn’t an off-road-focused SUV. Instead it’s somewhere in between—a longer, three-row vehicle closely related to the Jeep Grand Cherokee and built from the architecture that brought us the Mercedes GL-Class and M-Class

The Durango, to distill it down to the essence, is a utility vehicle with considerable rugged capabilities and exceptionally nice road manners. With handsome, sauve styling, a refined cabin feel, and superb performance, it’s one of the best ways to go if you have a growing family…and a boat to tow on the weekends.

Whether your idea of what a utility vehicle should be is soft and organic, or whether you’re a fan of boxy SUVs with brush guards and roof carriers, you’ll probably come to an agreement that the Durango is one of the better-looking three-row SUVs on the market. It combines some of the traditional, with a good dose of contemporary sculpting. The classic SUV stance is set up by the big crosshair grill, as well as a silhouette that doesn’t arch too much in any way—or taper. It’s just boxy enough without looking slab-sized. LED racetrack lighting, one of the latest Dodge family traits, forms a ribbon of light across the tail.

Inside, almost none of the truck-like heritage has been carried over. The soft, flowing dash has thin metallic rings framing the major controls and a large touchscreen to rule the infotainment world. With leather upholstery, woven red inserts and red stitching, and white trim rings on the dials, the Durango feels less like an on-a-budget utility vehicle and more like a luxury SUV, done right.

Last year marked the debut of a red Nappa leather interior for the R/T model; this year all models get new wheel finishes, four new exterior colors, and a few new appearance packages thecombine gloss black and body-color details—aesthetically building a bit more on the Mopar motorsports and muscle-car cues elsewhere in the Dodge lineup.

Dodge Durango performance

The Durango includes the same, excellent new eight-speed automatic transmission that’s used in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and other Chrysler products. It’s controlled via a stylish rotary shifter like the one used in the Ram 1500 and Chrysler 200, as well as paddle-shifters for all models. A pair of strong engines is available: the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 making 290 horsepower (or 295 hp) and 260 pound-feet, and a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 making 360 hp and 390 lb-ft. Both are helped by the eight-speed auto to achieve acceptable fuel-economy numbers. HEMI feature so-called Fuel Saver Technology (cylinder deactivation), while V-6 models now include engine stop-start technology (ESS), and all models have a selectable Eco Mode that changes throttle sensitivity and transmission shift points to maximize fuel savings.

All that said, the Durango is still especially thirsty in V-8 guise. Ratings slide to 14/23 mpg, or 17 mpg combined. And with all-wheel drive, it’s pegged at 14/22 mpg or 16 mpg combined.

It may be worth it if you tow or need just an added amount of ruggedness, though. The Durango also offers a choice between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, depending on the model. Two different AWD systems are used; V-8 models get a low-range transfer case, while V-6 models use a simpler a single-speed unit. Towing capability tops out at 7,400 pounds with the V-8.

Seating for up to seven (or optional seating for six, with available second-row dual captain’s chairs) is one of the Durango’s top selling points. Its third-row seat is quite usable compared to other models this size, and it’s split 50/50, able to be folded flat into the floor. The standard second-row layout folds forward, too, to greatly expand cargo space. Dodge says there’s room for a six-foot couch and a coffee table, or to carry 10-foot 2x4s.

Dodge Durango safety and features

The Durango scores well in crash tests and comes with a very impressive set of safety features, including seven standard airbags, full-length three-row side-curtain bags, and active front headrests. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross path detection are available, as are adaptive cruise control with stop, and Uconnect Access, which includes some emergency and roadside-assistance services.

The smooth instrument panel resembles the one in Dodge’s Charger sedan, and can house either a five-inch or 8.4-inch Uconnect touch screen in the center stack. As in other Dodges, the gauges are made up of a seven-inch reconfigurable TFT screen.

The Durango is offered in SXT, Rallye, Limited, R/T, and Citadel models, with all but the SXT and Rallye getting the 8.4-inch Uconnect system that wraps together audio, climate controls, calling functions, and in some cases navigation. Turn instructions, audio info, or trip info can be displayed on the gauge cluster as well.

In recent years, Dodge has been pushing the Durango up the luxury ladder, first with a Limited model—leather upholstery, heated seats, a heated steering wheel, and the 8.4-inch Uconnect system—and now with a Citadel model that piles on even more like the Beats by Dr. Dre audio system (10 speakers and a subwoofer). There’s an available HDMI and Blu-ray rear entertainment system, with screens integrated in the back of front headrests and a remote. And Uconnect Access Via Mobile also has voice-command capability (including to read text messages) and enables media apps for streaming audio like Pandora or Slacker.

2015 Ram 1500 Outdoorsman Quad Cab 4X4 EcoDiesel

The 2015 Ram 1500 Outdoorsman Quad Cab 4X4 EcoDiesel. (FCA)

The Canadian new-vehicle market is expected to hit a new record when the numbers for 2015 are tallied.

Minivans and cars are falling from favour, replaced by SUVs and CUVs. But one thing remains constant — Canadians love pickup trucks.

During the past year I have tested seven pickups: Canyon, Colorado, F150, Ram, Sierra, Silverado and Tundra. They were powered by four-, six- or eight-cylinder engines and prices ranged from $30,000 to more than $70,000.

One stood out. The Ram EcoDiesel.

Like many Canadians, I understand and appreciate pickups. I own one (not a Ram). They have tremendous versatility, are able to carry or tow big and heavy items while providing spacious accommodation for five full-sized adults.

The trend is toward more attention forward of the cargo box, with comfort, convenience and features that rival luxury cars — combined with more people space than any car.

One thing pickups cannot provide is decent fuel economy. Until now. The average fuel consumption of those seven pickups tested last year was in the mid to low teens, (11.7-17.2 litres/100 km) on a combination of city and highway driving.

I am talking real-world numbers, not those generated in a laboratory or on long level stretches of road with a steady throttle opening. Here in the Maritimes we see very little of that type of road as ours are more likely to have hills and curves — conditions that require constant throttle adjustment.

Combine that with a heavy right foot and my numbers are always going to be well below that claimed by the manufacturers and proud owners who are always quick to remind me that they have done far better.

But my boat was rocked this year by the Ram EcoDiesel. Over my usual 350-km test route, it used slightly more than half as much fuel as the others.

During a subsequent four-province journey of more than 2,500 km, the big (5,700 lb) Ram EcoDiesel returned a stunning average of 9.6 litres/100 km at an average speed of 93 km/h.

That number may not impress if you have no experience with pickups. As indicated above, under similar conditions, the competition ranged from 11.7 to 17.2 litres/100 km.

The EcoDiesel numbers are even more impressive given that the vast majority of those miles were at 110 km/hr. At 100 km/h, the mileage was in the 8s!

This from a loaded ($54,000), luxurious, big four-door pickup that tipped the scales at almost three tons on the road.

2015 Ram EcoDieselI won’t go into the usual description of the amenities, comfort, etc., of a pickup at this price point. Suffice it to say the big rig was a wonderful companion during those 27 hours on the road.

The lofty perch proved an excellent platform and provided great visibility whether in the freezing rain and light snow of an early morning in northern Quebec or driving rain in PEI that same evening.

The excellent ride, comfy seats, excellent climate control system, easily deciphered infotainment system and relatively quiet cabin helped pass the time.

Those same features are readily available in other pickups.

The full-sized ones all offer diesel engines — but these big and extremely powerful units are workhorses, designed to allow the truck to carry or tow massive amounts.

The EcoDiesel is what I would call a light-duty diesel, a 3.0-litre V6 from VM Motori, an Italian company with a relationship to Chrysler, sorry FCA, dating back to 1992. Fiat bought the company in 2013.

The EcoDiesel offers more torque than the vaunted Hemi V8 and paired with the ZF eight-speed automatic, better fuel economy. Much better.

BUT — and here is the flip side of the coin — the EcoDiesel is expensive and you have to rely on high mileage and reasonable diesel fuel prices to recoup that extra cost. Driven with even a slightly lighter right foot, the Ram EcoDiesel will easily match the Natural Resources Canada rating of 8.8 litres/100 km.

No other full-size pickup can even approach that number. This engine, paired with the mandatory eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, adds $5,700 to the cost of the Ram truck.

That would buy an awful lot of gasoline.

If you plan on keeping the truck for years and/or accumulating high mileage, the EcoDiesel will make up that difference — while providing effortless real-world power and the ability to go more than 900 km on a tank of fuel.

More than most bladders!

Canadian Chrysler dealers eagerly await redesigned minivans

Source: Globe and Mail

Sales of minivans are dwindling in North America, but they’re still a big deal at Pothier Motors Ltd. – and an even bigger deal at the auto maker that supplies the Falmouth, N.S., dealership.

Minivans are a key franchise for FCA Canada Inc. (Chrysler), which ships Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country models from its Windsor, Ont., assembly plant to Pothier. So dealership president John Pothier understands the importance of the $2-billion (U.S.) investment FCA Canada’s parent company is making to redesign the people haulers.

The redesigned model will be introduced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Jan. 11.

“It’s going to be huge for them,” said Mr. Pothier, who is president of the Chrysler Dodge Jeep dealership. His store sells about 100 to 125 new Dodge Grand Caravans and Chrysler Town & Country models annually, representing about 20 per cent of Pothier’s annual new vehicle sales.

That’s the same share of new vehicle sales the minivans represent for FCA Canada. The Town & Country and Grand Caravan outsell the entire lineup of Chrysler, Dodge and Fiat passenger cars by almost two to one.

The Grand Caravan on its own is the second-best-selling vehicle in the auto maker’s lineup after the Ram pickup, even though the company’s minivan sales have fallen 10 per cent this year.

Spending $2-billion to upgrade a vehicle whose sales have fallen in a segment that has also slumped might normally be considered folly, but minivans have been one of the flagship vehicles for Chrysler since Lee Iacocca, the legendary chief executive officer of Chrysler Corp. at the time, drove the first one off the line of the Windsor Assembly Plant in 1984.

A decade later, the auto maker added a third shift to the Windsor plant and the factory has been rolling at full tilt since then – with the exception of a temporary shutdown when Chrysler LLC was in Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2009.

Chrysler has held the lead in the segment by continually offering features that kept it ahead of the competition, notably the first driver’s side sliding door on a minivan in 1996.

Industry sources said one of the innovations on the 2017 model will be foot-activated sliding doors and rear liftgate.

The auto maker has said there will also be a hybrid version of the vehicle.

The Chrysler twins combined lead the minivan segment in both the U.S. and Canadian markets, but the numbers are working against them. Minivans grabbed 7.4 per cent of the U.S. market in 2000 and nearly double that at 14.5 per cent in Canada, where the vehicles have always been more popular.

In 2015, minivan market share slumped to 2.8 per cent in the United States and 4.5 per cent in Canada amid soaring sales of crossovers, which have some of the utility of minivans, but none of the stigma.

That steady decline from 2000, when auto makers sold more than 1.5 million minivans, led several companies to abandon the market, including Chrysler’s Detroit-based rivals Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Co. and South Korea-based Hyundai Motor Co., whose Entourage model was discontinued after just four years in the market.

Nonetheless, industry analyst Joe Phillippi, who heads AutoTrends Consulting Inc., said he believes the segment has stabilized and should grow modestly as more millennials start having children.

“There’s a demographic cohort that really do view minivans as a great value, as a people mover for the family,” Mr. Phillippi said.

He points to his own daughter, a mother of three children, whose family owns a Honda Odyssey minivan and a Ford Explorer crossover.

“There’s a soccer game or tournament for each kid virtually every weekend fall and spring,” he said. “Being able to haul all their stuff, coolers, it’s a lot easier in the Odyssey than in the very trendy-looking Ford Explorer.”

The original plan for the redesign of the Chrysler minivans was to replace both of them with a single model, the Town & Country. But the Canadian and U.S. markets differ.

Sales of the models are about even in the U.S. market, but Canadians bought 46,927 Grand Caravans last year, compared with 9,001 Town & Country models.

Mr. Pothier said he keeps just one or two Town & Country minivans in stock in Falmouth, compared with about 30 Grand Caravans.

So Canadian dealers have urged the auto maker to retain the Dodge Caravan name and the less expensive version of the vehicle in Canada.

“I do not sell a lot of Town & Country [models],” said one Chrysler dealer in Western Canada. “The customer profile we sell Caravans to are not going from the yacht club to the private golf club.
