The data presented in the following tables are drawn from Chrysler-issued data books and sales brochures. There is some variability in what is reported in different sources for the same model year. I have tried to note the differences in the footnotes. Engine and transaxle options were highly dependent on trim levels and option packages, especially in the post-1995 models.

For several model years, beginning in 1995, a CNG-fueled version of the 3.3L V6 was available on certain Voyagers and Caravans. This was a mainly a fleet-only optionm so I don't list it in the regular powertrain tables; they had much lower power and torque.

A FFV (Flexible Fuel) version of the 3.3L V6 was available beginning in the 1998 model year. Horsepower and Torque ratings were the same as the gasoline version. The FFV engines were available in most states except CA, NY, MA and VT.

All engines listed in the following tables are Chrysler-designed and -built, except for the 2.6L 4-cylinder and the 3.0L V6 engines, which were sourced from Mitsubishi Motors Corporation.

NOTES: Some sources show horsepower rating of 2.2L engine as 96 @ 5200 RPM, and 2.6L engine as 99 @ 4800 RPM for 1984 models. The 2.6 is a Mitsubishi engine.

1985 and 1986 Plymouth Voyager/Dodge Caravan Powertrains

Engine/Transmission Base, SE & LE Bore X Stroke Compression Horsepower Torque (lbs./ft.)

2.6L 4-cyl + 3-spd auto Opt 3.59" X 3.86" 8.7:1 104 @ 4800 RPM 142 @ 2800 RPM

Automatic transaxles feature lock-up torque convertor for reduced engine RPM at cruising speeds.

These powertrains were available on 1987 minivans at the beginning of the model year. Mid-year in 1987, new powertrains were introduced and the powertrains listed above were discontinued.

(2) I have seen one 1989 Grand Caravan SE equipped with the 2.5L Turbo Engine and 3-spd auto trans from the factory.

2.5 turbo engines look attractive from the horsepower rating, but unless they are tweaked to run much higher boost (or given intercoolers), they are fairly sluggish with the automatic. The ideal combination is the turbo with five-speed, a rare and sought after combination today. Gus Mahon made a name for himself by running 13-second quarter-miles with a turbovan that he modified at fairly low cost.
