From 2001 to 2007, the Dodge Caravan represented a significant evolution in the minivan segment. Building on its established reputation for practicality, Dodge introduced a more modern and refined design. The exterior showcased a sleeker and aerodynamic appearance, moving away from the boxy styling of its predecessor. The Caravan continued offering spacious seating for up to seven passengers and versatile cargo capacity, making it a popular choice for families and businesses. Safety features, including standard front-seat side airbags and available stability control systems, received significant attention during this era. Dodge also introduced innovations like Stow ‘n Go seating, allowing the rear seats to be easily folded into the floor for a flat load floor. These improvements, combined with various available entertainment and convenience features, cemented the 2001-2007 Dodge Caravan as a competitive and practical choice in the minivan market, appealing to a broad spectrum of buyers.
