Before you read about the 2006 Dodge Caravan, let's find out more about the company that manufactures this wonder vehicle. Dodge automobiles came into existence in the year 1914 as the Dodge Brothers Motor Vehicle Company. Later this company merged with Chrysler Corporation in 1998 and it became a part of the Daimler Chrysler group.

It was in the year 2007 that the Dodge was bought by a private company and Dodge cars are manufactured under the name of Chrysler Holding LLC. Dodge is legendary mainly for its trucks that come handy in homes at all times. Dodge has brought out many models, like the 2006 Dodge Caravan, Dodge Dart, Dodge Mini Ram Van, the Dodge Caliber, Dodge Dakota, Dodge Raider, Dodge Town Wagon, Dodge Viper, Dodge Raider, Dodge Challenger, and many more. Some of these models are no longer under production, while others are still legends in their specs. The latest Dodge makes are the Viper SRT 10, the Ram and the Caliber. However, true Dodge enthusiasts swear by the 2006 Dodge Caravan.

The Dodge Viper or the SRT 10 had been launched in 1992. It is a two-seater super car with an FR layout. The Viper had many variants in its brand and the SRT10 has been added to its popularity, being included in many car racing video games, movies, music videos, and TV shows. The Dodge Ram was first announced into the Dodge brand in 1981 and was under production till 1998. Nonetheless, the Daimler Chrysler found the manufacture of such full sized pickup trucks being into the favour of the company, so they re-launched the model again. The Ram was awarded the truck of the year two times by the Motor Trend magazine and this has added to the reputation of this tough truck. The Ram was redesigned and given a new uplift in the year 2009.

The 2006 Dodge Caravan is the one of the last entry into the Dodge family and was launched in 2006. Basically, the 2006 Dodge Caravan was brought to replace the Neon. The people who bought the 2006 Dodge Caravan in the introductory year were extremely pleased with their purchase. Besides the 2006 Dodge Caravan, there are other Dodge cars that have entered the market and are equally successful.

The Caliber is a compact car segment with four wheel drive and a 5 door hatchback body style. The Dodge Caliber was considered the smallest and the least expensive vehicle of the brand in the US and Canada. The Caliber has many variants into production like the SE, the SXT, the R/T and the SRT - 4. The new models which were added to the Dodge family were the Dodge Challenger in 2008; the Nitro was introduced in the year 2007. The Nitro is a 4-door compact SUV and also a 4-wheel drive. The Avenger which was an older model manufactured between the years 1995 and 2000 was a mid-sized car. In 2008, Dodge re-released the Avenger as a 4-door sedan as the second generation Avengers. The Dodge Avenger is classed in the intermediate cars segment with its sibling, Chrysler Sebring. The Challenger is the latest in the Dodge family with a retro design.

While there are many models of Dodge cars to choose from, the 2006 Dodge Caravan is perhaps the most preferred choice among vehicle drivers. The 2006 Dodge Caravan looks great and offers a fantastic mileage.
