The minivan becomes a fleet-only vehicle for 2022.
When you think of desirable brands, Chrysler likely isn't even in your top 10. Heck, it might struggle to make your top 50, and even if it did, the Chrysler Voyager would almost certainly not be the car you'd be lusting after. It's not a bad vehicle, it's just a little bland, and lacks many of the features of the similar Pacifica.
The Chrysler brand is in dire need of revitalization, and a recent EV concept looks set to do just that, but in the meantime, there are some changes happening. For the Voyager, the change is that the minivan will no longer be sold to the public and will become a fleet-only vehicle.
In a recent press release revealing 2022 updates, we see that the Voyager will only be available in one trim called the LX. It will be well-specced, however, featuring a seven-inch touchscreen with Uconnect 5 infotainment, second-row Stow 'n Go seats, power-sliding side doors, a heated front row, and a heated steering wheel. The 2022 Voyager will also gain a new air filtration system from the Pacifica, while options will include blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, full-speed frontal collision assist with automatic emergency braking, and a 10.1-inch infotainment upgrade with navigation. Since this will be a fleet vehicle likely to be sold mostly to rental agencies, luxuries like a Harman Kardon sound system and leather upholstery won't be offered.
Under the skin, the Voyager retains the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. A nine-speed automatic will handle shifts to the front wheels, with all-wheel drive not on offer. The body sees no physical changes either, retaining the looks of the pre-facelift Pacifica, but buyers can choose from five launch colors: Silver Mist (which is new for 2022), Brilliant Black, Bright White, Granite Crystal, and Velvet Red.
For the public, you now have no choice but to upgrade to the Chrysler Pacifica, but this was inevitable. Perhaps decades from now the Voyager name will return to showrooms as a stylish electric family vehicle - assuming that Chrysler itself survives that long.
