Chrysler Brings Back the Voyager
Turns out the rumors were true, the Voyager nameplate is officially making a return to the Chrysler lineup. The Voyager will return as a rebadged and cost-conscious variant of the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica. It’s slated to share the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) minivan segment space with the existing Dodge Grand Caravan as well. Slated to replace the Pacifica L and LX trims, the 2020 Voyager will also offer buyers a top-tier (and fleet only) LXi trim. The interior will be similar to the interior of the Pacifica in terms of design, but budget-conscious materials such as cloth and leatherette seats will be the priority. The model was intentionally designed to become a fleet alternative for rental car companies, this way the vehicle will be introduced to parents (key demographic) and other consumers alike.
Standard features of the 2020 Voyager include seven-passenger seating, Android Auto smartphone and Apple CarPlay capabilities. Additionally, the Voyager will offer innovative mobility solutions with superior maneuverability complete with ease of entry and exit for wheelchair users. The goal of the Voyager is to be a bonafide competitor in the minivan segment with its no-compromise approach at an unbeatable value. If there’s any specialist when it comes to minivans, Chrysler is definitely it as it’s the first automaker to introduce the minivan. Throughout six generations of the vehicle, FCA is responsible for innovating 115 minivan firsts. With over 14.6 million minivans sold globally by FCA, twice as many other automaker over the past 35 years – it’s safe to say Chrysler has perfected the minivan.
