Sadly, it isn't a Plymouth.
Chrysler has finally added a new model to its lineup. That is an opening line we've been waiting to use for a long time, but with it, sadly, a somewhat disappointing reveal. In order to title the new model, Chrysler pulled out a name from its history, back when Plymouth was still around, and placed it on an already existing model to make the 2020 Chrysler Voyager, a low-priced replacement for the Pacifica L and LX trims.
The Pacifica name will still stick around on Touring L and Limited Trims of Chrysler's minivan, as will the Dodge Grand Caravan, which is still being sold as a budget minivan option. This new model will sit below the Pacifica and looks nearly identical both inside and out (trust us, there is a Voyager badge in the back).
Chrysler says the Voyager is targeting value-minded minivan shoppers, which is why both the L and LX trims include a 3.5-inch display in the gauge cluster and a Uconnect infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen (not the larger 8.4-inch screen found on higher trims). While the screen is smaller, it still includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and satellite radio. L trims include a bench in the second row while the LX adds captain's chairs, but neither includes Chrysler's practical Stow 'n' Go seats.
The Voyager will also have an available safety package with rear parking sensors and blind spot monitoring while the LX trim comes with heated seats and a heated steering wheel as optional equipment. Both trims will include cloth seats and no option to upgrade to leather. As with the Pacifica, the Voyager is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 producing 287 horsepower.
Private customers won't be able to purchase it, but Chrysler will also sell a cheaper LXi trim for fleets such as rental lots and taxi services. In addition to all of the standard and optional equipment found in the LX trim, the LXi trim adds leatherette seats, remote start, a roof rack, second-row sunshades, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and Stow 'n' Go seats. Pricing has yet to be announced but we wouldn't be surprised if the Voyager is priced similarly to the outgoing Pacifica L and LX, which start out at $27,235 and $30,045 respectively.
