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.
