Top Fuel-Efficiency: Dodge Dart

The Dodge Dart is available 3 various trims, all of which offer an excellent fuel economy in the city and on the highway. The most affordable Dart trim is the Dart SXT and it is equipped with a 2-liter Tigershark MultiAir2 160-horsepower engine. The SXT trim gets an average of 24 MPG when driving in the city and 36 MPG when driving on the highway.

To help maximize comfort when on a long road trip, the Dart offers plenty of interior space for passengers, plenty of trunk space and covered storage tucked away in the floor. Additionally, the Dart SXT features great entertainment features like a USB port and an auxiliary jack, so drivers and passengers can bring along their own tunes on the journey.  

Family or Group Road Trip: Dodge Grand Caravan

A Dodge Grand Caravan is the ultimate road trip vehicle for families or a large group of friends who love to camp and explore. Powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar engine, drivers will enjoy a smooth and powerful ride and the minivan’s average fuel economy of 25 MPG when on the highway. Built for up to seven people, the Grand Caravan offers tons of really easy storage options like Dodge’s signature Stow ‘N Go seating and additional 143 cubic feet of cargo space.
