Chrysler is hoping to snag more market share in the minivan segment by adding another, cheaper nameplate. After announcing the return of the Voyager nameplate a few weeks ago, pricing has leaked out for this cheaper-than-Pacifica minivan option.
CarsDirect reports the Chrysler order guides are showing a starting price of $28,480 for the base model Voyager L. At this price point the Voyager is going to undercut nearly all of the competition big a sizable margin, including the Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey.
Voyager buyers will be able to opt for the Voyager LX for a starting price of $31,290, while only fleet buyers can acquire the Voyager LXI for $34,490. Regardless of price, the Voyager will not offer many technology features, such as automatic braking and adaptive cruise control; those are reserved for the Pacifica.
The 2019 Pacifica price ranges from $28,730 to $46,190, with the plug-in hybrid model topping-out near $48,000. Pricing for the 2020 Pacifica has not been released, but it will be interesting to see if Chrysler pushes the Pacifica base price up to give the Voyager more bandwidth at the low-end.
Chrysler isn’t the only brand at FCA still building minivans, either. The Dodge Grand Caravan is still in production and starts at a similar price point to the Voyager, suggesting the Voyager nameplate may by the long-awaited replacement for the Grand Caravan.
Surely FCA isn’t going to have three minivan nameplates that all start around $28,000.
