While the 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan still has the Stow 'n Go seats, this time they are larger and offer more comfort. There is also a fold-down function that can be activated with just a touch. It also now uses new premium seating materials plus the new door trim that are clearly soft to the touch.
The new steering wheel has speed control, navigation, and audio integrated to it. It even features a heated steering wheel option, the first for this minivan. Rounding out that interior is its offer of having the best storage for its class. To make sure that families continue to feel safe and stay connected, the 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan has more than 40 technology, security, and safety features.
These include the side air bags that are mounted on the front seat, the three-row side-curtain air bags, and the driver-side knee blocker air bag. Also equipped are the remote keyless entry, tire pressure monitoring, and electronic stability control.

Meanwhile, the Dodge Grand Caravan R/T is an example of performance and attitude mixed with versatility. Both the interior and the exterior have a distinct design. The R/T shows that even when they already have a family, drivers have no need to give up their identity or to refrain from having a spirited driving experience.
This vehicle also challenges other vehicles when it comes to driving families. The style is athletic and smooth with cutting-edge and smart entertainment features included. Flexible seating is offered as well as cool storage options.
