The Dodge Grand Caravan has held its place as a popular family minivan since its 1987 debut, but the Dodge Caravan SXT trim level didn’t come out until 2004. It replaced the high-end ES trim level and continued as the model’s top trim until its discontinuation after the 2020 model year.
You’re right that the SXT has a lot to offer over the Grand Caravan’s other trim levels. If you’re looking to save by buying an older model—and you’re willing to go as far as 18 years back—you can find the 2004 SXT priced anywhere between $2,200 and $4,000.
The 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT included the following features:
  • 215-hp, 3.8-Liter V6 engine
  • Power mirrors
  • Sound insulation
  • Power sliding doors
  • HomeLink garage door opener
  • 16-inch alloy wheels
