by David Zatz on

The 2014 Chrysler Town & Country 30th Anniversary Edition includes black Alcantara seat inserts with Nappa seat bolsters, glossy black steering wheel bezels and interior trim, third-row power folding seats, power folding mirrors, light gray lower instrument panel, Super Center Console, and logos in the gauge cluster, radio splash screen, and key fob.

Standard on these cars is the Driver’s Convenience Group, with heated first- and second-row seating, a heated steering wheel, adjustable pedals, keyless entry/starter, and bright door handles.

The Town & Country S has revised trim with a monotone black interior with leather-and-cloth seats and glossy black appliqués and a standard dual-screen Blu-Ray system with HDMI input, two USB recharging ports, a 12- volt outlet and a 115v two-prong outlet. The screens are higher-definition than in past years. The van has a performance suspension.

The 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan 30th Anniversary Edition is available on both the SE and SXT. It adds unique 17-inch polished satin carbon aluminum wheels, body-color heated mirrors, and 30th Anniversary badging on the front fenders.

Inside, it has silver accent stitching and glossy black accents, black cloth seats, a black leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, black headliner and overhead console, chrome trim bezels, and anniversary logos in the gauge cluster and key fob. The SXT version adds bright chrome window trim moldings and roof rack, fog lamps, automatic headlamps, Black Torino Leatherette seats with suede inserts and silver accent stitching, and a 10-way power driver’s seat.

The biggest value in minivans may be the 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan American Value Package, at $19,995 plus destination. It has the usual V6 and six-speed automatic, with air conditioning, anti-lock four-wheel disc brakes, stability control, seven airbags, third-row Stow ’n Go seats, power windows, locks, and mirrors, tilt-and- telescoping steering column, cruise, and more. New for 2014 on AVP are easy-clean floor mats with the optional second-row Stow ’n Go seats.

New for the 2014 Grand Caravan R/T are automatic headlamps with black bezels and the Security Group, along with new black wheels. (For photos of the Dodge Caravan 30th Anniversary, see our 2014 page.)
