If I could buy a base model Grand Caravan with the GT body/suspension/wheels I would buy it today?
Well, today ended up being Friday afternoon:
This little 2018 Grand Caravan SE was bought brand new at Russ Darrow. The guy that bought it walked in, bought the only black SE with a 2nd row bench on their lot, then walked into their parts department and ordered all the GT exterior parts to be installed before he took delivery.
Apparently, he only keeps vehicles around 50k, so he just walked back in and did the same thing, trading off this van in the process.
Needless to say, I put my money where my mouth is, and we are now the proud owners of this wonderful 2018 Grand Caravan SE.
Complete with the 2nd row bench:
And despite all the hate Chrysler gets for their interiors, this has amazing seats, a well laid out dash with nice materials, nice door panels complete with leather arm rests, and quite a few options for a stripper SE:
Here she is settling in with the other girls:
Sorry for all the potato pics, I didn’t have the camera, I’ll grab some better pics in the next couple days.
So far we’ve driven it 3 days and we love it. It’s smooth, quiet, comfortable while being powerful, with nice handling, and returns respectable mileage (clocked over 30 mpg cruising at 60 mph).
