2021 Sienna vs. 2020 Grand Caravan Comparison

It's no secret that the Sienna and the Grand Caravan are great vehicles with ample space and tons of safety features fit for the whole family.

For all they can do, their price points don’t break the bank either. Looking at the 2021 Toyota Sienna and 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan, the Grand Caravan SE, starting at $27,530, has a lower starting MSRP than the Sienna LE FWD which starts at $34,460. However, the Grand Caravan lacks many standard features that the Sienna includes even when you compare base models. That's why the Sienna won the KBB Minivan Best Buy of 2021, while the Grand Caravan did not.

Not only that, the Sienna has more standard active safety features no matter the model you choose with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 (TSS 2.0), plus available AWD. As you'll see, the Grand Caravan doesn't offer many active safety feature technologies and does not offer AWD.

You can also look forward to more interior room and standard interior feature advantages in the 2021 Sienna.

While the Grand Caravan is a budget-friendly option, it comes with significantly fewer standard features in most categories than the 2021 Sienna. Read on to see just how these two minivans differ when it comes to safety, performance, and interior offerings.
