ATS Mobility Vans: Dodge Grand Caravan Features and Benefits
The Dodge Grand Caravan excels as a van in general, but it stands out even more as an ATS mobility van. If you haven’t yet considered this vehicle for your next mobility van, you might want to. With an ATS mobility van conversion, the Dodge Grand Caravan allows for versatile configurations and a safe, secure entrance, exit, and transport of passengers with wheelchairs.
Dodge Grand Caravan ATS Mobility Van Features
The Dodge Grand Caravan ATS mobility van offers a lot for drivers in need of a wheelchair-accessible van. The following are a few stand-out features in this van:
Four adults can comfortably sit in the front and second-row bucket seats of the Dodge Grand Caravan when equipped with an ATS mobility conversion. Wheelchair access sits behind the second-row seats, giving the wheelchair user plenty of space to enter and exit comfortably.
The rear of the ATS mobility Dodge Grand Caravan has enough area to hold up to two standard wheelchairs comfortably, depending on configuration.
An ATS mobility conversion creates a ramp in the rear of the Dodge Grand Caravan rather than the side, as is on traditional accessibility conversions. This allows a wider ramp for the wheelchair to use for entering and exiting the van without interfering with interior space.
The ATS mobility conversion for the Dodge Grand Caravan offers a 34-inch-wide non-skid ramp, which is one of the widest in the industry, allowing space for large wheelchairs. Additionally, the height clearance exceeds ADA standards for simple and comfortable wheelchair movement.
The lightweight ramp is easy to fold up and back out when you need it. With its powder-coated finish, you can expect it to remain durable and rust-free throughout its lifetime.
ATS ensures a secure and safe ride for wheelchair users with its wheelchair locking system that keeps chairs in place during transport. The system is known as Q-straint, and it allows you to lock wheelchairs in place with a few quick clicks.
The Dodge Grand Caravan allows for a few configurations to cater to your seating and wheelchair needs. First, the second row is optional. If you don’t need the bucket seats, you can opt to leave them out, allowing more space for wheelchair users in the rear.
You can also choose from three different rear entry channel sizes: 60 inches, 94 inches, and 101 inches. The 60-inch channel can accommodate one wheelchair, while the 94-inch and 101-inch channels are best for two larger wheelchairs or a stretcher.
The Dodge Grand Caravan is also available in a side-entry mobility configuration. What makes it different from an ATS mobility van configuration?
The key difference is that ATS creates rear-entry accessibility rather than side-entry. The rear configuration often allows for larger wheelchairs because of more available interior space. With an ATS mobility Dodge Grand Caravan, you can have a wheelchair in the back while still having room for up to four other passengers.
Another perk of ATS mobility vans is parking flexibility. With side-entry vans, you’re more limited as to where you can park while still allowing wheelchair access. With rear-entry accessibility, you can move a wheelchair in and out of the van freely.
