The 2021 Chrysler Voyageur is a popular choice in this automaker's lineup, due to its passenger capacity and unique design. Once manufactured under the Plymouth brand, the Chrysler Voyageur become one with the Chrysler namesake in 2000. Spanning three generations, this minivan maintained its same features for this model year. Yet, it did widen its range of safety technology. Maintaining its budget-friendly price tag, the 2021 Chrysler Voyageur also held on to its third-row seating, spacious interior, and refined driving. The 2021 Chrysler Voyageur is one of the few minivans left in the standard market, and drivers can learn more about all it has to offer below.
What's New for 2021?
This year's Voyageur is rather simplistic with availability in only two trim levels: the L and the LX. Both are relatively clean and economical with the LX trim offering a bit more of an upgrade. Neither trim level is overtly accommodating or complex, which is perfect for families in search of a traditional minivan option for their expanding family or spatial requirements. This year's Voyageur is much like last year's model, without any significant changes occurring.
Though neither trim offers any amenities that are overtly impressive, buyers who are in the mood for a bit more than ordinary should go with the LX trim. Better suspension is accompanied by upgraded automatic headlamps and an upgrade from aluminum wheels to steel. A heated steering wheel and satellite radio also make an appearance in the LX trim level.
The Styling of the Chrysler Voyageur
The look of the 2021 Chrysler Voyageur is traditional through and through. Mimicking its previous model years, the Voyageur is one of the few remaining value minivans on the market. Maintaining its signature look, the hood lines of the Voyageur have faded into a smooth silhouette. Many of the harsh contours have been buffered into a sleek cascade that travels down the side of this minivan. Giving it a more modern look, you can still see the underlying design of what used to be in this well-known minivan model.
Voyageurs come standard with many amenities that its sibling Pacifica offers. Rear bench seats that accommodate this brand's Stow 'N Go capability make more room for storage giving buyers exactly what they are looking for in a minivan layout. Underfloor cubbies create even more space for stowing personal items, and captain's chairs in the middle make it easy to access the rear seats.
The 2021 Chrysler Voyageur has the same interior configuration as last year’s model. Complete with a 7.0-inch infotainment system that sits in the dash and a 3.5-inch garage cluster, buyers can control their performance and passenger entertainment with the touch of a fingertip. Families with little ones in the back can also be kept entertained by a DVD player upgrade for a small fee in the LX trim.
The 2021 Voyageur relies on the same powertrain as the one utilized by the Chrysler Pacifica. It is 3.6-liter V6 is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission that relies on front-wheel drive to get you where you need to go. Its V6 can put out 287 horsepower.
The Voyageur's lighter weight than its Pacifica relative leads us to believe it can be rather peppy for a minivan. Since the heavier Pacifica only takes 7.3 seconds to go from 0-60 MPH, we think the Voyageur can beat that with ease. For those looking for a more economically-conscious hybrid model, this will not be found in the Chrysler Voyageur anytime soon. Yet, the fuel efficiency of this model is a logical trade-off.
Quality and Comfort Amenities
The Chrysler Voyageur's layout as a minivan is a foreshadowing of the space and comfort inherent to this specific model. Up to 32 feet of cargo space within this minivan ensures you will always have enough room to travel and stow passenger items, as needed. Accommodating 12 carry-on suitcases with the rear seats in an upright position seems a bit impressive, even for a seven-passenger minivan like the Voyageur.
It is in the LX trim that you will find the best comfort amenities and convenient features, like a power-adjustable driver's seat that is heated and a heated steering wheel. Keeping it simple, yet innovative, the 2021 Chrysler Voyageur sporadically incorporates comfort-enhancing interior features throughout the cabin of this minivan model.
The ability to transport many passengers necessitates adequate safety enhancements in the 2021 Chrysler Voyageur. Receiving high safety rankings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Voyageur is commended on its crashworthiness thanks to high-strength steel body components. While drivers and passengers will enjoy a few standard safety features, this vehicle has not yet been tested by the Insurance Institutes for Highway Safety. So, the verdict is still out on its crash-testing durability.
Barely falling short of comparable hybrid models, the fuel economy of the Voyageur is impressive. If you are looking for a vehicle to help you get up to 28 MPG combined fuel efficiency, the 2021 Chrysler Voyageur is it. Scoring better than its main rivals, this minivan has an edge over others with its efficiency engine and lightweight style.
The 2021 Chrysler Voyageur is one of few traditional minivan models still available on the market. Offering all the features you once fell in love with, the Voyageur sticks to design and technology that has proven useful over the years.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Chrysler Voyager MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
