2015 Caravan: most affordable 3-row

The Dodge Caravan will remain the most affordable three-row minivan in America for 2015, with a starting price of $21,890 (including destination charge).  That’s for the American Value Package, a setup derived from the popular Canadian Value Package.

The “normal base” SE starts at around $3,000 more, with the well-equipped SXT coming in at $27,990.  The sport Dodge Caravan R/T, set up for better cornering and a snazzier look, tops the charts at $30,990.

The Grand Caravan is both the best selling minivan in America so far this year, and the fastest-growing, with sales up by 12%. For 2015, the R/T will get standard 17-inch polished aluminum wheels with gloss black pockets, all minivans will have standard daytime running lights, and there will be two new packages on SE and SXT. Both include Blacktop and UConnect Hands-Free; one adds a power driver’s seat ($995) and the other, the power window group ($1,195).

Timing for the new “RU” series minivans is uncertain, with a factory closure late in 2014 indicating an early 2015 launch, but Sergio Marchionne most recently projecting new minivans for early 2016.  Some sources have said that the current Caravan will continue for one or two years afterwards, while a full-size crossover is being designed and tested.

Chrysler Town & Country starts where Dodge Caravan ends, with the base LX at $30,990.

New Platinum, LX minivans

For 2015, Chrysler will add new minivans to both the top and the bottom of the price charts.

A new Limited Platinum actually lowers the top starting price of Chrysler minivans to $40,990, including destination. It includes everything in the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country Limited, but adds a power folding third row seat and the power sunroof — at less than the price of the 2014 Limited.

At the bottom end, the LX (late availability) will match the Caravan R/T’s starting price of $30,990. The Touring, S, and Touring-L continue essentially unchanged, at $31,760, $33,990, and $35,460, respectively (including destination).

Dodge Caravan starts at $21,890. The Chrysler models come with many features standard, and more elaborate interior and exterior styling. Both share a six-speed automatic and 3.6 liter V6 gasoline engine.
