The Voyager name is closely associated with Plymouth, but it’s making a return and this time it isn’t on an ill-fated Lancia.
Unveiled earlier today, the 2020 Chrysler Voyager is a value-priced Pacifica with a different name. It effectively replaces the Pacifica L and LX, and is designed to appeal to budget conscious families and fleet customers.
Styling changes are minor, but the Voyager has a relatively plain front fascia which is largely devoid of chrome trim. The model also has a new liftgate with Voyager badging.
Detailed specifications weren’t announced, but the Voyager will be offered in three different trims called L, LX and LXi. All come standard with seven-passenger seating and a 3.5-inch digital display in the instrument cluster. Buyers will also find a six speaker audio system, active noise cancellation technology and a 7-inch Uconnect infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
An assortment of options will be available including the SafetyTec Group which adds blind-spot monitoring, rear cross path detection and ParkSense rear parking assist. Customers can also order the Cold Weather Group, a Stow ‘n Place roof rack and a rear seat entertainment system with an overhead DVD player.
The fleet-only Voyager LXi comes nicely equipped with leatherette seats, Stow ‘n Go second row seats and a Stow ‘n Place roof rack. The model also has an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage door opener and a security alarm. Rounding out the highlights are a remote starting system and retractable sunshades in the second row.
All Voyagers will be powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that produces 287 hp (214 kW / 291 PS) and 262 lb-ft (355 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Chrysler didn’t mention pricing, but the model should start around $27,000.
