Main Differences Between the 2019 Dodge Caravan and the 2019 Toyota Sienna
The 2019 Grand Caravan rated better than the 2019 Sienna in a series of crash tests from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In the event of a frontal collision, the organization’s crash tests show passengers in Grand Caravan experience less neck stress (143 lbs. vs 218 lbs.) and neck compression (20 lbs. vs 80 lbs.) and are less likely to suffer from head injury.
Grand Caravan offers Stow ‘n Go second- and third-row seats, which fold seamlessly into the cabin floor for an empty, unobstructed cargo area. The Sienna does offer a Split & Stow third-row seat that folds into the floor, but the model's stocky second-row seats must be removed from the cabin manually to maximize cargo space.
Having all that space doesn’t mean much without the strength to move your cargo haul down the road. The Dodge Grand Caravan offers a standard 1,540-lb. payload capacity. The Toyota Sienna falls behind with a standard payload rating of 1,210 lbs. Even the Sienna’s max. payload capacity falls short at just 1,380 lbs.
