A new Voyager is on its way

by David Zatz on

The first Chrysler minivan ever made was, depending on the source, a Plymouth Voyager or a Dodge Caravan. In Europe, for most of the time you could buy a Chrysler minivan, it was the Voyager.

Now, Web sites from AutoBison to Car & Driver are saying that the Voyager is officially back.  The move expands Chrysler’s product line from two cars to three, sort of. (Four, if you count Pacifica Hybrid as a separate model.)

The new Voyager is essentially a Pacifica with a lower price, meant to either replace the Dodge Grand Caravan (which some believe will be exiting next year) or to test the waters—would customers buy a Chrysler Voyager, or indeed any Chrysler-branded minivan, if the price was lower? Is it the nameplate or the price that sustains the Caravan in the United States and Canada?

Styling changes are minimal; the cheaper front fascia was already used by the base Pacifica. A fleet-specific LXi (a 1990s Chrysler trim designation) will have leatherette seats, Stow ’n’ Go for both second and third row, remote start, an automatic rear view mirror, and a roof rack. Retail and fleets alike can get the L and LX trims; these have a small digital gauge screen and seven-inch UConnect center stack touch-screen, with cloth-covered seats and Stow ’n’ Go only in the third row. The L has a second row bench seat; the LX adds second-row bucket seats and a power driver’s seat. What’s more, options such as parking sensors and the blind spot monitor only become available with the LX.

The Pacifica is also coming back for 2020. Still, if buyers flock to the Voyager, will the Pacifica name remain—or will it become the Grand Voyager?

Update: Chrysler has now officially posted the news.
