Minivans have come a long way in recent years, with many modern options offering the perfect combination of performance, versatility, capability, and refinement. Two of the best examples of the new age of minivans are the 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan and the 2019 Toyota Sienna, but there are some differences to consider in choosing between them.

Drivers in South Burlington, St. Albans, and Chittenden County can find out the key differences between these two minivans with our 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan vs. 2019 Toyota Sienna comparison.

Dodge Grand Caravan vs Toyota Sienna: Performance

The Grand Caravan is equipped with a 283-horsepower 3.6L V6 engine that mates to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Sienna comes with a 296-horsepower 3.5L V6 engine with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Though both engines are capable of moving these large vehicles well, the Grand Caravan engine is more refined and quieter.

The driving dynamics of the two differ as well. While the Grand Caravan has a smooth ride quality, remarkable composure, and plenty of accessible power, the Sienna struggles to find its gears and bounces over road imperfections.

Dodge Grand Caravan vs Toyota Sienna: Interior Space

Both the Grand Caravan and the Sienna have well-appointed cabins with three rows of comfortable, supportive seats. They also share cloth upholstery standard and offer optional comfort upgrades, such as leather upholstery, heated seating, and a heated steering wheel. The Grand Caravan has the most passenger space of the two, however, with the third row spacious enough to accommodate large or tall adults. The second and third rows of the Sienna are a bit cramped, so they're better suited for children.

Though both vehicles offer comparable cargo space, the additional cargo options make all the difference. The Dodge Grand Caravan offers overhead storage bins for the cabin and comes standard with third-row Stow 'n Go seating, which is also optional for the second row. With these features, you have even more cargo space and configuration options, unlike the Sienna, which requires removing the second- and third-row seats to get similar space.

Dodge Grand Caravan vs Toyota Sienna: Technology

The Grand Caravan comes standard with 3-zone climate control, power accessories, and a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The Sienna has few features at base level, though it does include a 6.1-inch infotainment system. Beyond these, features like navigation, automatic headlights, and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system are included throughout the lineup.

Though they both include infotainment, the systems are quite different. The Dodge Grand Caravan has an intuitive system with a responsive touch screen that features large, easy-to-read icons that make navigating the menu exceptionally easy. The Sienna's system is competent enough, though it lacks the same usability and practicality.
