The 2020 Chrysler Voyager Revives A Dead Name – Think Of It As ‘Pacifica Lite’

This will replace the lower-end Pacifica models in the lineup

Remember the Plymouth Voyager? Odds are you grew up in or around this cousin to the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country, and now Chrysler has revived the old name in a new model. Well, sort of — this time around, the 2020 Chrysler Voyager looks a heck of a lot like a Pacifica, and that’s not by accident.

Essentially, the 2020 Chrysler Voyager is the Pacifica, but it replaces the lower Pacifica L and LX trims. Higher trims like the Limited will still be sold as the Pacifica. Confused yet? More or less, the Voyager is just the budget-friendly version of the Pacifica with a different, nostalgia-friendly name.

Same L and LX trims

The 2020 Chrysler Voyager will be available in three trims: L, LX, and the fleet-only LXi. The LXi, in particular, offers leatherette seats, second-row Stow ‘n Go seating, remote start, a security alarm, retractable second-row sunshades and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Other than that, the only real difference between the Voyager L/LX and its Pacifica predecessors is a badge on the tailgate.

Since this is the less expensive model, the Voyager will stick solely with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. The engine still puts out 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, but the Hybrid version will stay in the Pacifica camp.

While the new Voyager model — or sub-model, if you want to be pedantic about it — touts itself as a budget alternative to the Pacifica, it will not replace the Dodge Grand Caravan. However, more information on changes for the 2020 Grand Caravan are restricted until September.

FCA has not announced pricing for the 2020 Chrysler Voyager just yet. The current Pacifica L starts around $28,730, so we don’t expect the Voyager to move much off that figure. Again, the Voyager will be on the cheaper end, while the Pacifica will represent the more expensive, more luxurious models.
