The Chrysler Voyager was formerly a minivan that was available to both fleet managers and private buyers alike. Now, it seems that the brand has moved the Voyager to a more business-oriented market. The minivan is now only available through the brand’s fleet program, with everyday drivers having to choose between the higher-end models sold by Chrysler. This review on the 2022 Chrysler Voyager will go into the new standard features, performance specs, and other additions that will help fleet managers make their choice as to whether this car is the right one for them.
Instead of being available to private buyers, the 2022 Chrysler Voyager is now being sold as a fleet vehicle option. The company has also dropped many of the usual trims available to it. Other new features that come included with the Voyager include a new infotainment suite, a new safety package, and other interior additions. In terms of exterior colors, Silver Mist is now an option.
In order to be able to buy a Chrysler Voyager from the brand, you need to be a member of the company’s fleet program. The one model available to fleet managers, the LX, is filled with a variety of features and equipment that come standard to it. The 2022 Chrysler Voyager’s LX trim doesn’t have a recorded price on Chrysler’s website, but estimates have placed it at an estimated cost of $33,000. There will likely be no lease deals available either for the 2022 Chrysler Voyager. Since it’s now a fleet-only model, it’s likely that it will either be done through different financing methods or through bulk sales of these minivans.
This iteration of the Chrysler Voyager makes use of a 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 which comes standard as a gasoline model. It is capable of about 287 horsepower and a torque output of 262 pounds-feet. It comes in tandem with a 948TE nine-speed automatic transmission. This is mounted on a front-wheel drive system, with no option for any upgrades to an all-wheel drive system. Stop/Start technology helps it to operate smoothly, shutting down the engine when the vehicle is on a prolonged standstill. It also restarts the engine as soon the brake pedal is released. Tests on the Chrysler Voyager rates it sprint time at about 7.3 seconds, reaching a speed of 60mph in the process. It sports an Electric Rack and Pinion steering system, capable of a turning diameter of about 39.7 ft. A set of Disc brakes with single-piston floating calipers are used to provide the minivan with ample braking power. It rides on 17-inch Cast-Aluminum wheels with a set of Yokohama Avid S34 wheels.
FUEL EFFICIENT & ACTUAL MPG
With there being only one engine option available, the Voyager scores a combined MPG score that more or less matches the ratings of its rivals. For context, the Chrysler Voyager has a fuel capacity of about 19 gallons. The car’s fuel economy should be enough for fleet managers to handle, especially with how fuel prices are constantly in a state of flux. Below is the MPG of the 2022 Chrysler Voyager:

INTERIOR, SOLACE & BAGGAGE
The interior of the 2022 Chrysler Voyager is spacious, though the design of the cabin isn’t really anything to write home about. It does bear similarities to Chrysler vehicles currently in production, but it doesn’t sport any of the usual premium features of higher-end SUVs and crossovers from the brand. Passengers are seated in Bucket seats that are covered in cloth upholstery. The front seats of the LX trim level are heated, with the driver’s seat being power adjustable in 8-ways. A new addition to the Voyager’s seating layout is a second and third-row of Stow n’ Go seats that are able to fold into the floor. The second row also holds floor storage bins for extra cargo capacity should you need it. Speaking of capacity, the cargo volume of the Voyager is 140.5 cubic feet. This is more than ample for logistics services, being able to carry loads of cargo to and from a certain distance. Max Passenger volume totals up to about 165.0 cubic feet.
The Infotainment Suite on the Chrysler Voyager is the Uconnect 5, all integrated within a 7-inch touchscreen. It comes integrated with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone usage. Drivers can make use of a 3.5-inch digital gauge cluster which comes standard on all models. There is also the option to upgrade to a 10.1-inch display which adds in a navigation system, integrated voice command capability, and a trial of SiriusXM Guardian. The sound system used on the Voyager is a regular six-speaker sound system which produces ample sound quality for your travels. It even comes with Active Noise Cancellation capabilities, eliminating the amount of road and wind noise that can be heard from within the cabin.
As a more business-oriented minivan, the Chrysler Voyager is expected to have ample safety features equipped. Some features that come standard to the Voyager include a Cruise Control System, Remote Keyless Entry, Proximity sensors on all doors, an Electric Parking Brake, and a rear back-up camera. Certain features are under a Safety Package which includes features like Blind Spot Monitoring and a Forward Collision warning system. Another package that comes available to members of the Fleet Program is the Fleet Security Group Package. This includes a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, as well as additional key fobs in case of any losses.
Chrysler offers a limited warranty plan that spans for 3 years or for the first 36,000 miles driven, whichever comes first. Next up is their Powertrain coverage, lasting for 5 years or the first 60,000 miles driven. The company does not offer any plan for complimentary scheduled maintenance, a feature which would be enjoyed by fleet managers everywhere should there be one in the future.
