The Chrysler Voyager comes into the 2021 model year with a more important role than ever before. Chrysler announced the relaunch of the Voyager nameplate in the U.S. marketplace, as a way to separate its more premium offerings from its award-winning Chrysler Pacifica lineup and its more value-based option. With the production of the iconic Dodge Grand Caravan coming to an end, the Chrysler Voyager will step up to the plate to ultimately replace the Dodge variant.
The 2021 Chrysler Voyager now holds the title as America’s most affordable minivan, designed with the budget-friendly family and fleet customer in mind, it carries a unique look and feel from the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica and delivers exceptional driving experience at a pocketbook-friendly price.
Under the hood, the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 is paired with a segment-exclusive 9-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission and delivers 287 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. The value-based Chrysler Voyager is only available in a front-wheel-drive configuration, those who want all-wheel-drive (AWD) will have to step up to the much more luxurious 2021 Chrysler Pacifica.
There is a ton of standard features that highlight Voyager’s versatility, capacity, and utility, including seven-passenger seating with third-row Stow ‘n Go and 7-inch Uconnect touchscreen radio with integrated voice command with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto smartphone compatibility. Voyager also comes standard with a long list of safety features, including seven airbags, daytime running lights, electronic stability control, Brake Assist, Child Seat Anchor System (LATCH), ParkView rear backup camera, and more.
Mobility innovations include available rear and side-entry conversions that create a wider entryway and more interior space compared to a standard Voyager, as well as an enhanced ramp securement system, helping to ensure superior maneuverability and improved ease of entry and exit for wheelchair users.
After it debuted last year, the Voyager received a five-star overall safety rating from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
