Chrysler Repositions Its 2022 Chrysler Voyager Minivan Lineup:

New Infotainment, New Standard, & Now Offered Only For Fleets...

While the Chrysler Pacifica tends to get most of the attention in the brand’s minivan lineup, the Chrysler Voyager returns for the 2022 model year. However, in a bold move, the Chrysler brand is making the Voyager a fleet-only model. Gone are the various L, LX, and LXi (the LXi being last year’s fleet model) in a favor of a single LX model. So with that being said, let’s take a deeper look into the 2022 Chrysler Voyager LX that might just be your next rental vehicle.

Yes, the 2022 Chrysler Voyager LX looks identical to last year’s model inside and out, it is the content that should be appreciated for the new model year. Starting with the addition of the Uconnect 5 software in a standard 7-inch touchscreen display. The new Uconnect 5 system brings the Voyager over-the-air (OTA) update capability, the ability to connect two phones simultaneously with Bluetooth, Amazon Alexa voice control, Uconnect Market, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with voice recognition to the fleet oriented offering. Something we would have loved to see in last year’s consumer-focused lineup.

The 2022 Chrysler Voyager LX also comes standard with second-row Stow ‘n Go seats, power sliding doors and liftgate, inflatable spare tire kit, and heated front-row seats with a heated steering wheel. The second-row Stow ‘n Go seats were not available on last year’s consumer-focused models but did come standard on the fleet-only LXi, as did the power-sliding doors and liftgate option.

There is also a new Safety and Premium Group that offers Blind-Spot Monitoring, ParkSense Rear-Park Assist, and Rear Cross Path Detection from last year’s SafetyTec Group, but adds Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus with Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Uconnect 5 Navigation with a 10.1-inch display, GPS Navigation, Sirius XM 360L, and Sirius XM Guardian.

The Voyager LX, like its Pacifica sibling, now comes standard with a new high-efficiency cabin air filter. The system cleans 95% of air particulates and separates out pollen, allergens, and bacteria for the cleanest cabin air ever in a Chrysler minivan.

Under the hood of the Voyager LX, is the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine paired with a segment-exclusive TorqueFlite nine-speed automatic transmission, Voyager delivers 287 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque.

When it comes to color options, the fleet customers will be able to choose from 5 different colors including the all-new Silver Mist (PSE) paint color. The other four colors consist of Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl Coat (PXR), Bright White Clear Coat (PW7), Granite Crystal Metallic Coat (PAU), and Velvet Red Pearl Coat (PRV).

The 2022 Chrysler Voyager is built at the Windsor Assembly Plant in Windsor, Ontario. Pricing has yet to be released to fleet accounts.

I certainly will be seeing a lot of them, if they can be delivered. The last batch of minivans we received were Pacifica hybrids. We are trying to "green the fleet" as per the dictates of big brother. Stellantis better get on the ball and offer the eFlite hybrid system in this fleet only Voyager as well.

Doesn't anybody in Auburn Hills remember the VW Routan? Of course maybe they are trying to forget. VW basically showed the old Chrysler company how to produce something different from the same vehicle. It was better than its Dodge and Chrysler production line siblings, IMO. Back before Stow-n-Go the Dodge grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country vans had different personalities, but absorbing the Plymouth trims under the Chrysler brand messed up things. Dodge had the Grand Caravan with ES trim which did set it apart from the other minivans. It was a performance flavor with the big V6 and much better suspension and tires. The Chrysler T&C offered the same motor, but has different suspension tuning.

Today the Pentastar V6 is no slouch, whether standard or with the hybrid or AWD options. A properly done Grand Caravan would not hurt Dodge's performance image.

I thought the point last year when the Voyager was introduced, it was meant to be the cheap replacement for the out going Dodge Grand Caravan (US)? Now it will only be a fleet vehicle, so a “family” on a tight budget not only no longer has the Dodge to purchase, it doesn’t have the Voyager either. I saw your recent article on the Pacifica pricing and really didn’t find their “bottom” line version (Touring @ $36,245) to cheap. What are they doing to Chrysler and the original mini van they created? OMG!

If the roads around my part of the world are any indication, Kia is mopping the floor with Chrysler in the minivan market. This new Carnival is everywhere I look. And I see Zero, zero new Pacificas out and about. What a shame . But not surprising . Don’t worry though , right? Those growing families can buy into the six figure Grand Wagoneer market if they want a Mopar .

I don't believe that's true, unless I missed something?
