Voyager to get power boost

by David Zatz on

The Chrysler and Lancia Voyager’s R428 diesel engine (from VM) is, according to our source, getting a power boost from 120 kW to 133 kW (torque appears unchanged at 420 Nm). 420 Nm corresponds to 310 lb-ft while 133 kW translates to around 178 horsepower. The diesel Voyager is slower 0-60 than the gasoline-powered Town & Country, but uses less fuel per mile.

The Maximum Steel color will replace Carbon Gray; a 2%-4% price increase is expected to accompany these changes.

Jeep also uses a 2.8 diesel, which currently produces 147 kW and 460 Nm. Chrysler will be using a 3-liter VM diesel engine in the United States and Canada, due to its ability to meet stricter emissions rules. Some expect the R428 to be phased out as European standards also increase in severity.
