A few years ago, FCA did a pretty smart thing. As the Dodge Grand Caravan was ready for retirement, they needed a new affordable minivan. Instead of making a new one, they decided to bring back the Voyager, which came with the same look as the pre-facelifted Pacifica. The lack of changes and a pretty basic list of standard equipment made it affordable, but also fresh enough to be considered a modern and relevant player on the market. Considering that it’s been around for less than two years, we are pretty sure that the 2022 Chrysler Voyager won’t feature too many changes. Instead, it should carry on in the same way.
This means you may count on the same characteristics, on a budget-friendly Pacifica, which doesn’t look as fancy but offers the same ride quality and the same amount of interior space. Furthermore, it uses the same V6 engine, which provides more than decent driving dynamics. Practically, the only complaint goes to a short list of standard equipment, but that’s what makes this minivan cheap, which is the whole point of its existence.
Since there are no significant changes to come, we presume that the 2022 Chrysler Voyager release date will be scheduled for the last quarter of the year.
2022 Chrysler Voyager Design
In terms of base design characteristics, this model definitely won’t change. Despite it’s been around for a couple of years, it actually features the same design as the initial Pacifica, which appeared in 2016. This refers both to mechanics and aesthetics.
Mechanically, this model rides on a familiar Compact Wide platform and shares most of the parts with the discontinue Chrysler 200. With 121.6 inches in wheelbase, it features a quite typical size for the class, while the suspension setup is fine. All in all, the ride quality is good, pretty much on par with Pacifica, considering the same suspension parts.
Styling-wise, the 2022 Chrysler Voyager will continue in the same way. It features the look of pre-facelifted Pacifica. We could say it’s not the most attractive minivan on the market, but it definitely looks nice enough to attract buyers who want to save a few thousand and buy this instead of models like Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey etc.
The best way to reduce production costs is to save on interior materials. Therefore, it’s no wonder that the Voyager features some pretty cheap plastic surfaces on the inside. Still, this cabin is far from looking bad and the 2022 Chrysler Voyager will certainly continue in the same way. The dashboard looks fine, though definitely not as upscale as rivals.
More importantly, this cabin is spacious and comfortable. There is a little bit more road noise compared to Pacifica, but the seats are pretty much the same. All three rows are comfortable and offer enough space to accommodate adults with ease.
The cargo area is also pretty generous. You may count on about 32.3 cubic feet behind the third row, 87.5 cubic feet of space behind the second row and a total of 140.5 cubic feet behind the first. That’s a pretty decent amount of space for a minivan.
This is a pretty basic minivan, so the list of standard equipment isn’t particularly long. Of course, the 2022 Chrysler Voyager will continue in the same way, without any notable change in this aspect. So, the list of standard equipment should include goodies like a 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, a USB port, and a six-speaker stereo. Among options, you should find goodies like remote start, a DVD player and satellite radio.
When it comes to safety features, the current model comes standard with a rearview camera only. Additionally, you can get options like blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and rear parking sensors.
2022 Chrysler Voyager Engine
Things under the hood will definitely remain the same. You may count on a familiar 3.6-liter V6 engine, which puts out around 287 horsepower. That’s enough for good driving dynamics, even when fully loaded. The engine comes in pair with a 9-speed automatic transmission, which is smooth and generally does a pretty fine job. All-wheel drive is not available in Voyager.
When it comes to fuel economy, you may count on about 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, which quite decent for a minivan. The max towing capacity goes up to 3.600 pounds.
2022 Chrysler Voyager Release Date and Price
As there are no bigger changes to come, we expect that the next year’s model will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year. When it comes to the 2022 Chrysler Voyager price, base models should go around 28.000 dollars.
