According to the latest reports, new 2021 Chrysler Voyager won’t look like many of us thought. Not so long ago, Chrysler made a strange move with the new Voyager. This model should replace the entry-level Pacifica minivan. Many reliable sources said that the Voyager would look almost the same as the current Pacifica. However, that will not happen.
Whatsoever, the new Pacifica will get a significant facelift and those changes won’t be available on Voyager. Most likely, the interior will also depart from what everyone expected. The powertrain options are still a mystery. New Voyager will go on sale this summer.
2021 Voyager Won’t Wear Pacifica’s Styling
Chrysler basically confirmed that the Pacifica and Voyager would wear different faces. New 2021 Chrysler Voyager will keep its current design while Pacifica minivan will get a more dramatic facelift. On top of that, Voyager won’t offer any of Pacifica’s novelties. Some people think this is a crazy idea.
On the other hand, this is a good way to separate your premium minivan from something more affordable. Furthermore, Pacifica’s buyers will be more eager to open their pockets. Generally, the arriving 2021 Voyager will replace the Pacifica LX trim level and it will represent a more affordable variant.
Voyager vs. Pacifica – Interior
The story goes beyond the exterior design. The upcoming 2021 Chrysler Voyager will also depart from Pacifica in terms of interior and tech. The arriving Pacifica will also gain additional tech and further interior improvements. On the other hand, 2021 Voyager won’t be anywhere near that. To compare, Pacifica will get a 10.1-inch infotainment screen and upper trim levels a premium Nappa leather upholstery.
Moreover, you can expect a redesign of the center console. As for the Voyager, a 7-inch touchscreen will be in the offer, along with the basic cloth upholstery. Whatsoever, most of the premium features are available as made, exclusively. That also includes tech features and driver-assistance aids.
At least something will be the same as on the Pacifica model. The 2021 Chrysler Voyager will deploy the same and reliable 3.6-liter V6 engine. This potent unit is producing 287 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. A 9-speed automatic transmission is available, and Voyager will surely provide a very pleasant ride. On top of that, Pacifica’s new torque-vectoring AWD system will be available on Voyager.
Thanks to that, new setup will shuffle power to all four wheels, if needed. Moreover, all the power can be sent only to the rear wheels as well. New Voyager minivan will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 7.6 seconds. It can tow almost 3,600 pounds and it will use a 9-speed automatic gearbox.
