In the budget minivan market, there aren't quite a lot of offerings and the Chrysler Voyager perfectly fits in the segment and is a stripped-down version of the flagship Pacifica from Chrysler. The 2021 Chrysler Voyager gets no mechanical or design updates but Chrysler has made it safer on the road by adding driver assistance features as an add-on option. Moreover, it comes with a reasonable price tag.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


Starting at $27,860, the minivan offers up to 7 seats, a decently powerful V6 engine, and other goodies such as an updated infotainment system and a lot more. Competing with the likes of other minivans in its class like the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, and Kia Sedona, the Voyager offers exceptional value for money and packs decent specs for its segment.

2021 Chrysler Voyager Features

The 2021 Chrysler Voyager is offered in just two trims just like the outgoing model year - L and LX. There is only one powertrain option and that is a naturally aspirated V6 engine with a front-wheel drivetrain. The L trim packs the majority of basic features like manual adjustability of front seats, a 6-speaker audio system, cloth seats, and plastic interiors and is priced competitively at $27,860. The higher LX packs a few extras over the basic ones, like 8-way power-adjustable driver seats, and three-zone climate control.

Which Trim should you buy?

Choosing the LX trim would fetch you some extra features like 8-way power-adjustable driver seats, and dual-zone climate control, and an optional 12-Way Power Driver Seat over the basic ones found on the L trim. At a price difference of just $2,710, the LX is not too expensive over the base L trim and the perks you enjoy in the LX trim are really worth spending all your bucks.

2021 Chrysler Voyager Engine and Performance

The 2021 Chrysler Voyager packs a tried and tested 3.6-liter naturally aspirated Pentastar V6 engine which has been seen in a lot of vehicles from the Fiat Chrysler group. This engine is capable of pumping out a pretty respectable 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. This engine comes mated with a 9-speed automatic transmission and an FWD drivetrain.

2021 Chrysler Voyager Minivan 

The engine does not feel sluggish whatsoever which is a good trait but the transmission system might get a few jitters with aggressive throttle inputs. However, the numbers do justice to the real-world performance, where the Voyager does a good job in accelerating from 0-60 mph in 7.2 seconds and does a standing quarter-mile in 15.1 seconds. In fact, the Voyager accelerates a bit faster than the more expensive Pacifica.

Both Chrysler and Honda lead the competition in terms of raw engine power and have faster acceleration figures, especially Honda which hits 60 mph from a standstill in 6.6 seconds and does a quarter-mile run in 14.5 seconds. Toyota, with its hybrid setup, couldn’t match the rivals in terms of overall performance and acceleration. Although the Kia holds up quite well despite making lower engine power.

How well does the 2021 Chrysler Voyager handle?

Similar to the more expensive Pacifica, the Voyager handles quite well despite being a minivan. The steering has a nice heft to it and does stay firm while taking corners. The suspension setup is decently tuned for more on-road comfort, however, body roll is still pretty much evident while taking corners. Regardless, the handling capabilities are surely impressive and sometimes even better in the competition.

Despite its heavyweight, the Electric power-assist steering gives a decent response and feedback which is pretty impressive. Moreover, it uses the Macpherson strut suspension in the front and trailing arm suspension in the rear to offer a comfortable ride quality throughout your long journey. This suspension setup is not for high-speed driving, instead, it comes into its own while cruising.

2021 Chrysler Voyager Braking Performance

The braking performance falls under the pros of the Voyager and with 13-inch brake rotors both on the front and rear coupled with electronic brake distribution and anti-lock brakes, the performance is quite unexpected, for a minivan. However, the braking distance is not available at the moment but given that it has a lower curb weight of 4330 pounds, it should perform better in the competition as all the rivals weigh significantly higher.

The Voyager is equipped with considerably bigger rotors and has the lowest curb weight of 4330 lbs in the competition. The Sienna, on the other hand, weighs the most and has slightly smaller rotors at the rear compared to the Odyssey, and does take even more distance to come to halt. The Sienna stops in 128 feet whereas the Odyssey does it in 125 feet which are considered between the two vans.

2021 Chrysler Voyager Fuel Economy

Chrysler has tuned the Pentastar V6 engine to be more refined. As a result, it provides a decent power output but also maintains fuel efficiency quite well. This makes the Voyager a more approachable minivan of the segment. The EPA rated the same with a city mileage of 19 MPG, a good 28 MPG for the highways, and a combined economy of 23 MPG. Equipped with a decent gas tank of 19 gallons, the range is pretty good at 418 miles combined and allows uninterrupted long-distance journeys without frequent fuel stops.

In comparison, Toyota absolutely demolishes the competition with its bonkers fuel economy provided by the gas-electric engine setup. Both Chrysler and Honda offer very similar fuel economy but on the other hand, the Kia gets a reduced highway mileage by quite a margin but packs the largest gas tank of 21.1 gallons which boosts its overall range but is still not quite up to the mark.

2021 Chrysler Voyager Interior

Not just the exteriors and powertrain but also the cabin of the 2021 Chrysler Voyager is very similar to the Pacifica in terms of design and spaciousness. Although, it misses out on a majority of the creature comforts to make it more cost-effective. The dashboard is made of plastics but has a few soft-touch areas and looks good with the 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment screen placed at the center.

The steering wheel is ergonomic but does not come with leather upholstery even on the higher trim which is kind of a bummer. The instrument console has a small 3-inch display for all the driving-related info, along with two large analog dials for tach and speedo. Coming to the seats, all of them are cloth-covered which is another downgrade from the Pacifica but offers good comfort with adequate cushioning. The front seats come with manual adjustability as standard which is acceptable for its price bracket.

The cabin has the capacity to hold up to 7 passengers and offers good in-cabin spaciousness with adequate head, shoulder, and legroom. However, the third row has slightly lower legroom, though it will not cause problems to anyone except taller people. Overall the cabin experience could have been better if the higher trim had leather seats. Apart from these, the experience is quite impressive, especially considering the price.

The Voyager is the only minivan in the competition with 7 seats, the rest come with 8 seats. However, the cabin of the Voyager has balanced dimensions compared to the competition. The Sienna offers the most cabin room including the third row. The Odyssey and Sedona are quite spacious too but with the Odyssey, the first-row headroom is the lowest in the competition while the Chrysler Voyager has the least legroom in the third row. All the minivans in the competition have plentiful cargo space, however, the Odyssey has the most. Some of the standout interior features are:

  • Cruise control
  • Electric power steering
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Keyless ignition
  • Rearview camera
  • 8-way power driver seat with power lumbar support
  • Tilt and telescopic steering wheel

What’s there to keep you entertained?

The 2021 Chrysler Voyager gets the same infotainment system as that of the previous model year. It gets a UConnect infotainment system that can be controlled via the 7.0-inch touchscreen display. The screen is crisp and smooth to operate. The infotainment system is less complicated than most of the rivals and is also highly customizable.

As standard, it comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with Bluetooth connectivity and a voice command system. However, the base trim is fairly spartan. Chrysler also provides an optional rear entertainment package which includes a DVD player for the rear row. Some of the key highlights of the infotainment system are:

  • 6-speaker audio system
  • UConnect system
  • Bluetooth and USB connectivity
  • 7.0-inch touchscreen display
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity
  • SiriusXM
  • Voice recognition
  • Auxiliary audio input

2021 Chrysler Voyager Exterior

The exterior of the 2021 Chrysler Voyager looks just like a typical minivan of its segment and has sharp looks at least at the front. The minivan has a minimalistic design language adapted from the Pacifica. The front gets halogen headlights while every other minivan of its segment gets full-LED setups. The front also has a blacked-out intake grille with Chrysler badging over it. There are no power-sliding doors available as standard for the minivan.

2021 Chrysler Voyager Minivan 

The rear gets halogen taillights and does look fairly dated as compared to what the rivals have on offer. The minivan sits on 17-inch alloy wheels and does with all-weather tires as standard. In terms of dimensions, the Voyager seems to be on par with the competition. The ground clearance is set at 5.1 inches which is decent for a minivan and you can take it to the countryside pretty easily. The curb weight is on the lower side of the segment at 4,330 pounds.

Toyota weighs the most in the competition while the Chrysler Voyager is the widest with the latter having higher ground clearance and the former has a slightly longer wheelbase. Honda is the most compact in the competition. In terms of exterior looks, the Toyota is arguably the most striking with its impeccable design language. Some of the key exterior highlights are:

  • 17-inch alloy wheels
  • Keyless entry
  • Heated mirrors
  • Halogen head and taillights
  • Power-sliding doors (Optional)
  • Power liftgate (Optional)

2021 Chrysler Voyager Safety

Chrysler has made sure that the Voyager stays safe on the road. The build quality is quite robust which is proven by the crash-test results. The NHTSA has rated the 2021 Voyager with a full 5-star for the overall crash resistance. The IIHS has rated the same with “Good” in the majority of the categories. Apart from these, the minivan packs an impressive list of safety features as standard but an optional driver assistance package is available to make the use of radar-based active safety features. Some of the standout safety features in the Chrysler Voyager include:

  • Dual front side-mounted airbags
  • All three rows head airbags
  • 4-wheel ABS with traction control
  • blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert-
  • rear parking sensors with rear automated emergency braking
  • Stability control
  • Tire pressure monitoring
  • Passenger airbag occupant sensing deactivation

2021 Chrysler Voyager Competition

2021 Chrysler Voyager vs 2021 Honda Odyssey

The Honda and Chrysler are similar in a lot of categories including performance and fuel economy, however, Honda takes a strong lead overall by including a lot of features inside the cabin like leather steering wheel and seats. Similarly, the exterior design is better on the Honda whereas the Chrysler looks dated. However, the Chrysler comes around 7 grand cheaper than the Honda.

2021 Chrysler Voyager vs 2021 Toyota Sienna

The Toyota Sienna is a great minivan, for starters, aggressive exterior designing, spacious interiors with a lot of features on offer, make it highly appealing. It also puts out a segment-leading fuel economy mainly because of the hybrid engine. Although it feels sluggish at times because of its lower power output compared to the Voyager. However, the price gap between the both is quite significant with the Sienna being the costliest in the competition.

2021 Toyota Sienna

2021 Chrysler Voyager vs 2021 Kia Sedona

The Kia Sedona looks more modern and is definitely a head-turner which is not the case with the Voyager. Yet the latter is better in performance, fuel economy, overall cabin spaciousness, and safety. Also, it is considerably cheaper but the Kia packs a few extra cabin features. The Voyager serves a better value for money between the two but if you desire more features the Voyager is not for you.

2021 Chrysler Voyager Final Verdict

Considering the value proposition, the 2021 Chrysler Voyager is a great option if you are looking for a minivan that costs considerably lower than its counterparts. The Voyager packs decent performance, a versatile cabin space to fit your family, and offers plenty of cargo capacity to pack your luggage. However, a lower price tag does mean serious cost-cutting measures which the Voyager falls prey to. Rest assured, the Voyager serves the purpose of being a no-nonsense minivan for a family.
