The Chrysler Voyager is the latest edition to the FCA family. The decision was made to create a budget friendly line out of the Chrysler Pacifica’s lower trim levels. The new Voyager will start at $28,925 offering a less expensive option in 2020, starting production in August. The Voyager is a recycled name from back in the day of Plymouth.
Chrysler has given their lower trim L and LX trims to the new namesake: Voyager. The 2020 Chrysler Voyager will be mechanically identical to the Pacifica with the 287-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine and nine-speed automatic transmission. The Voyager L trim level is fairly basic with manual climate control, cloth seats, and a second-row bench seat that makes it a seven-passenger capacity. Stepping up to the LX features captain seats in the second-row, power driver’s seat, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and SiriusXM satellite radio. Pricing for the LX starts at $31,290. They didn’t leave out the fleet vehicles and have a LXi trim meant for rental duty. The LXi features leatherette seats, second-row Stow ‘n Go seats, a roof rack and remote start. The fleet van is priced starting at $34,490.
Rumors lean towards the new Voyager being the conduit to phase out the Dodge Grand Caravan. The Grand Caravan has been the FCA’s lowest priced minivan offered for several years, and with the new Voyager it doesn’t really have a purpose or place in the market. Announcements will start being announced as the International Car Shows start approaching.
