Illustration for article titled Whats The Greatest Minivan Of All Time?

It was on a cold November morning 25 years ago the first Dodge Caravan rolled off the assembly line in Fenton, Missouri, officially launching the minivan. Although our maximum day of coverage in honor of 25 years of minivanning will shove off tomorrow, we decided to start the fun today. Though crossovers and MPVs are more frequent these days, they all owe a debt of gratitude to that first tall wagon. Given the multiple not-so-large vans of the last 25 years, which is your favorite? What is the best minivan of all-time? There's something to be said for the 1989 Turbo Dodge Caravan SE, with woodgrain or without, which combines the comfort of a van with the fun of forced induction. The turbocharged Caravan was only available for two years and is now considered a collectors item. Even rarer, you can get a 1990 Caravan with the 150 hp turbo 2.5-liter fourbanger and a five-speed transmission. Anyone in Vegas can pick up this one for just $400.
