2021 Chrysler Voyager
When it comes to Chrysler, family passenger vehicles have become a large commodity and the major focus of the automaker. The Pacifica minivan and Pacifica Hybrid minivan are two large examples, but the most recent and out reaching is the Chrysler Voyager. Made for families of all types and ages, this minivan comes with more accessibility options so everyone can go for a ride. See how the Chrysler Voyager is different from other minivans.
Avail. Engine Type
When Chrysler designed the Voyager, the automaker basically broke up the Pacifica lineup and modified two of the trims into new vehicles – the Voyager L and Voyager LX. Following many Chrysler standards, both trims come with a 3.6-liter V6 under the hood. Optimized with variable valve timing (VVT) for better performance and fuel efficiency, this engine is able to generate 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Paired with an Electric Start-Stop system, fuel economy is even better with an engine that turns off when idling, such as in traffic.
Driving and Handling
With only two trims, the powertrain and engineering don’t require many differences. Both trims come with a 9-speed automatic transmission tied to the engine. The fuel economy for both is an EPA of 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
Because this is a family vehicle, the Chrysler Voyager comes with some nice standard features for a comfortable, enjoyable, and safe ride. This starts with heated exterior mirrors, a rear window wiper/washer, splash guards in the front and bear, sliding doors, sunscreen glass, protective clear film, and running boards. Other features not listed in the specs consist of BraunAbility rear- and side-entry conversions, a wider entryway, and an enhanced ramp securement system. The Voyager LX gets a little extra with automatic headlamps, front and rear LED lamps, and a black Stow ‘n Place roof rack. Both trims ride on 17-inch wheels.
The cabin of the Voyager is also pretty nice. Because this is a family vehicle and not a luxury vehicle, cloth upholstery is the only option for the seat trims, but the additional features and amenities pick up the slack, starting with multiple storage compartments for games, sporting equipment, wheelchairs, and more. The Voyager comes with a third row Stow ‘n Go 60/40 bench seat, an automatic climate control system with three zones, rear air-conditioning, push button start, and remote proximity for the driver door. Of course, the LX trim has a few differences, such as a power 8-way adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, second-row in-floor storage bins, a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, and easy to slide second-row bucket seats for giving the third-row easier access.
Both trims of the 2021 Chrysler Voyager come with Uconnect 4 on a 7-inch touchscreen with a six-speaker system, integrated voice command with Bluetooth, and Google Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The LX trim also gets SiriusXM Satellite Radio, steering-wheel mounted audio controls, and a single overhead DVD system by Mopar. A little more simple than the Pacifica, but this vehicle is more focused on all-accessibility.
Safety Features and Warranty
The 2021 Chrysler Voyager doesn’t skimp on safety, with many standard features including advanced multistage front airbags, a drivers knee airbag, supplemental front seat-mounted and side-curtain airbags (in all rows), a ParkView rear back-up camera, a sliding door alert warning that sounds when the sliding door is opening and closing, a LATCH-ready child seat anchor system, and an occupant classification system that turns off the passenger seat airbag if no passenger is detected. Advanced safety features that also come on both Voyager trims are blind spot and cross path detection, full speed forward collision warning plus, and ParkSense rear park assist with stop.
All Chrysler vehicles are covered by a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty, 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, and a 5-year/unlimited-mile rust-through warranty.
