Since 1988, the Plymouth Voyager minivan was sold in several international markets badged as a Chrysler. Not as posh as the Town and Country, the Voyager existed on the short 113.3-inch wheelbase platform or on the longer 119.3-inch wheelbase under the Grand Voyager name. With the looming closure of the Plymouth brand in 2000, the Chrysler Voyager emerged in the United States. The Voyager and extended length, Grand Voyager were introduced through the 2000 Chrysler line-up as a base or SE model.
Base the Chrysler Voyager minivan was powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a three-speed automatic transmission. Providing V-6 performance, a 3.0-liter powered the base Grand Voyager as a standard powerplant. A 158-horsepower 3.3-liter powerplant was also offered with the Voyager available as a flex-fuel engine capable of running E85 blended gasoline.
A minivan created for families, the base 2000 Chrysler Voyager and Grand Voyager models were modestly equipped with dual front airbags and an AM/FM stereo system with cassette player. The SE trimmed versions of the Chrysler minivan added some creature comforts like air power windows, tilt-steering column, power door locks and a CD player. All models except for the base Voyager provided standard seven-passenger seating. For 2001, the Chrysler Voyager was redesigned and resided only as a short wheelbase with a base and LX model.
The 2.4-liter four-cylinder returned to propel the base 2001 Chrysler Voyager while the 3.3-liter powered the Voyager LX with 180 horsepower. Among with the introduction of the value-oriented eC in 2002, the Chrysler Voyager was available with a dealer-installed VCR or DVD-based rear-seat entertainment system. Chrysler dropped the Voyager minivan brand in the United States after the 2003 model year.
