While the 2019 Grand Caravan is considered a minivan and the 2019 Journey is a midsize crossover SUV respectively, they both possess mighty features for vehicles in their class.The Dodge Grand Caravan boasts a bigger engine size with more horsepower and torque similar to that of the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While the Dodge Journey doesn’t share the same sort of power in its base model, its SE V6 Value Package trim model does meet the Grand Caravan’s specifications at each point. Each vehicle has different trailer capacities also:

  • Maximum Trailer Weight
    • 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan – 3,600 lbs
    • 2018 Dodge Journey – 1,000 lbs

Trailing with the Grand Caravan has its perks over the Journey. While each can haul your larger belongings to and from Milwaukee, the Grand Caravan gives you more weight to work with.

Special Highlights and MSRP Pricing

Both the Journey and Grand Caravan offer three-row seating and up to 7 passengers which means you and your entire family will ride comfortably as you take on the Beloit commute. While the legroom, hip room, and headroom aren’t vastly different between the two vehicles, the Journey only provides 124 cu.ft. of passenger volume over the Grand Caravan’s 163 cu.ft. You and your guests will have the space you’ll need with comfort in the 2019 Grand Caravan.

Each vehicle has different technological features that enhance the overall driving experience, but share amazing features like Uconnect® 3 with beautiful display screens and Bluetooth connectivity. Heated front seats and leather upgrades are available options in both models at certain trim levels. There are also safety packages available to further secure your drive with the latest technology.

The base price for the minivan and crossover vehicles play up the difference between the two:

  • 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan – Starting MSRP $26,650
  • 2018 Dodge Journey – Starting MSRP $22,995

The Grand Caravan may boost more power at the base model and great interior features, but its almost $4,000 price tag difference may be the defining factor for drivers in Whitewater.
