Looking to carry lots of passengers? The 2018 Honda Odyssey and the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan are both popular options among large families in the Frankfort area. If you’re shopping in this class, you probably want to know which model offers better fuel economy and standard features. That’s why Community Honda is here to help. Explore this comparison before you decide which minivan to buy.

Save Money on Fuel Costs

It’s simple: better fuel economy means savings at the pump over the life of the vehicle. If you’re planning to keep your next minivan for years to come, that difference will really add up. The Odyssey and the Grand Caravan base trims offer the following fuel economy numbers:

  • The 2018 Honda Odyssey LX uses a nine-speed transmission and standard front-wheel drive to deliver 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway/22 mpg combined* in EPA estimates.

  • The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan SE is equipped with a six-speed transmission and standard front-wheel drive. With 17 mpg city/25 mpg highway/20 mpg combined in EPA estimates, it can’t match the efficiency of the Odyssey LX.

For better efficiency in the base trim, the Odyssey is the stronger choice.

Standard Features and Systems

The Honda brand has long been associated with premium features, and the Odyssey LX is packed with important systems:

  • Automatic Climate Control

  • Illuminated Vanity Mirror

  • Power Driver Seat

  • Auto On/Off Headlights

None of these are included in the base trim Grand Caravan. On top of that, there’s one more feature that’s exclusive to the Odyssey LX. It’s equipped with a rearview camera, one of many essential safety features included in the Odyssey. To add one to the Grand Caravan, you’ll need to pay more.

Which Minivan Will You Choose?

When it comes to standard features and savings on fuel, the Odyssey simply offers more than the Grand Caravan. You can even take it for a 24-Hour Test Drive to make sure it’s up to the task of transporting your family.
