The 2022 Chrysler Voyager doesn’t pretend to be a luxury vehicle; in fact, it seems to almost take pride in the fact that it is a no-nonsense people carrier. The LX represents the only version of the Voyager and is only available as a fleet purchase.

The LX offers foldable Stow ‘n Go rear seating and an acceptable luxury spec that includes heated front seats, a power driver’s seat, power sliding doors, and a power liftgate.

The infotainment system is right up to date but the screen is a little small and there is a serious lack of driver-assistance features. The last two problems can be solved by opting for the Safety and Premium Group – a must-have extra.

The 2022 Chrysler Voyager minivan is a less expensive alternative to the brand’s other minivan, the Pacifica, and is aimed at fleet buyers. The front-wheel-drive Voyager is powered by a 287-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that works with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Chrysler’s Uconnect 5 multimedia system is now standard. Uconnect 5 includes over-the-air update capability, dual-phone Bluetooth connectivity, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

Other new standard features include heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, second-row Stow ’n Go seats, power-sliding side doors, and a power liftgate. A new air-filtration system is also standard.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

Mechanically, the 2022 Chrysler Voyager is identical to the Pacifica, using the same 287-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine and nine-speed automatic transmission to drive the front wheels. In our testing, the Pacifica managed a 7.3-second sprint to 60 mph.

Given this van forgoes some of the features that weigh down its brother, the 2022 Chrysler Voyager likely weighs less than the Pacifica and thus has the potential to beat that time. Don’t hold your breath for a hybrid. Chrysler will reserve that powertrain for the pricier minivan in its lineup.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

We haven’t had the opportunity to test the 2022 Chrysler Voyager on our 75-mph highway fuel economy loop, but for reference, the last nonhybrid Pacifica we tested achieved 31 mpg. The Chrysler vans both earn EPA estimates of 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.

The 2022 Chrysler Voyager’s 22 mpg combined score matches that of the Carnival and Odyssey, both chief competitors. For more information about the Voyager’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

As with the exterior styling, powertrain, and chassis, the 2022 Chrysler Voyager‘s interior mimics that of the Pacifica, albeit with fewer creature comforts.

You won’t find leather seats, automatic climate control, or rear-seat entertainment here, but the Voyager provides the same Stow ‘n Go capability that makes the Pacifica so versatile. Behind the third row, the Voyager boasts the same 32 cubic feet of cargo volume as the Pacifica.

So, while we have yet to put this van through our practical space tests, we feel safe saying that the Voyager will be able accommodate what its brother could (i.e., 12 carry-on suitcases with the rear seats up).

Infotainment and Connectivity

Chrysler provides a 3.5-inch digital display in the gauge cluster, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system in the center stack, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and a six-speaker audio system with active noise cancellation.

Bluetooth streaming and integrated voice control are also included but in-dash navigation, a larger 10.1-inch infotainment display, and SiriusXM radio are optional.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

Looking for driver-assistance features? You won’t find many in the 2022 Chrysler Voyager and nothing of the like is offered as standard.
