Manhattan Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram has the latest scoop on these two models that break the minivan mold with their bold looks and convenient features. Interested van shoppers in Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens can consult the comparison below to discover which ride better suits their travel needs.

Grand Caravan vs. Sedona: Vans with Versatility

Standardly seating seven passengers in three rows, both the Dodge Grand Caravan and the Kia Sedona wear their people mover statuses proudly.

However, available cargo room and cabin flexibility is a huge consideration for many minivan seekers. Luckily, both the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan and the 2017 Kia Sedona give you the capability to customize your minivan interior.

The Grand Caravan's Stow 'n Go� and the Sedona's Slide-N-Stow� both come equipped on the second and third row benches, allowing parents to fold full-seating rows away into the van floor with a few simple steps. When you do so, the 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan offers up a cavernous cargo hold of 143.8 cubic feet while the Kia Sedona offers slightly less at 142 cubic feet.

2017 V6 Engines Compete

The Dodge Grand Caravan and the Kia Sedona both run on six-cylinder engines that have plenty of pedal power for city travel. However, if you should need to hop onto the highway, you'll find that the Grand Caravan's 3.6-liter V6 engine is primed to travel in the left lane with ease while the Sedona's smaller 3.3-liter V6 is best kept to the right lane.

And yet, when you're toting the whole family, the feel of a smooth ride is just as important as a powerful one. Where the Grand Caravan minimizes the feeling of lumps and bumps in the pavement, auto critics report that the Kia Sedona's set-up more so amplifies them, especially the farther back you sit in the cabin.

Dodge vs. Kia: Standard Features

The 2017 Grand Caravan and the 2017 Sedona also come equipped with safety and connectivity essentials that help give you peace of mind every time you're behind the wheel. For example, both models have a standard rearview camera, which is a must for maneuvering a minivan in the big city.

Each van, too, has an infotainment suite that grants drivers access to a variety of media options and enhanced capabilities. The entry-level Grand Caravan gets Dodge's heralded Uconnect� system, which is operated from a 6.5-inch touchscreen at the center of the dashboard.

The Kia Sedona's starting system uses a 4.3-inch touchscreen, which compared to Uconnect�, is a bit more challenging to use due to its smaller screen size. ��

2017 Dodge Grand Caravan vs. 2017 Kia Sedona

The 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan and the 2017 Kia Sedona both earn praise for their spacious seven seat cabins. Still, for minivan buyers seeking highway-ready acceleration and tech-forward features, the Dodge Grand Caravan comes out on top.

A confident city ride with the power and flexibility you need for streamlining everyday travel, families in in the Manhattan, Bronx, and Queens area after a capable minivan will instantly take to the 2017 Grand Caravan.
