Voyager gets power boost

by David Zatz on

Lancia Voyager

Lancia announced at the Geneva Auto Show that the Chrysler-Lancia Voyager, equipped with the 2.8 liter VM diesel engine, will gain 15 horsepower to hit 178 hp. Torque is still rated at 360 Nm, or 265 lb-ft. Fuel usage with the diesel is currently 7.9 l/100km in a mixed cycle — around 30 mpg (with US gallons); 0-62 mph comes in 11.5 seconds. The 287-horsepower gasoline engine is also available in some markets.  A new trailer damping system was also announced.

Voyager, based on the Chrysler Town & Country minivans, is a premium vehicle in Europe; it is sold as a Lancia except in the United Kingdom, where it remains a Chrysler. The Voyager name has always been used for Chrysler’s minivans sold in Europe, and is derived from the original Plymouth Voyager minivan.  (Thanks, pabbloz).

Fiat also announced numerous new trim lines for European models.
