Dodge Introduces the "Man Van"
The Grand Caravan R/T

Chrysler hopes to get rid of the stigma of minivans as something only soccer moms drive with a new trim level on the 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan. Though it's not named "the man van", the R/T package is clearly aimed at the XY chromosome crowd. The R/T has a unique exterior package with arrest-me red paint, special wheels and blacked-out trim. On the inside it has black seats with red trim and all the electronic goodies. To back it up, it has the new Pentastar V6 engine, good for 283 horsepower, almost double the power of my first minivan a decade and a half ago. If you absolutely need all-wheel-drive or can't abide 4 doors, you can get the same trim package on the Dodge Journey for a little less money. I'm not sure if the B-25 is part of the package.

Now it's time for the marginally relevant video of the day. This one comes courtesy of comedian Sean Morey.
