Chrysler Launches Revised Grand Voyager MPV

2011 Chrysler Grand Voyager

Great news for people with big familiies — Chrysler, which invented the MPV, has revised its Grand Voyager people carrier.

The 2011 model carries more than the new winged Chrysler badge; it also has a “premium looking” front end, with a revised grille, bonnet and lower fascia, plus enhanced LED tail lamps, a new rear bumper and revised tailgate.

Fans of The Apprentice will still recognise the seven seater however, which comes after 13 million Chrysler badged MPVs since they first created the sector back in 1983 (Renault’s Espace debuted in 1984).

Inside, the Stow ‘n Go seats, which folds into the floor with one touch, are larger and more comfortable captain’s chairs.  There’s also a general upgrade with the odd leather wrapped steering wheel here, upgraded sound system there, with blind spot detection and new Nappa leather upholstery thrown into the  mix too.

It looks like the engine stays the same, with the UK getting only the 2.8 litre common rail diesel producing 161bhp  and 265lb ft of torque.  This gets the giant moving to a 115mph maximum speed with the 0-62mph dash taking 12.8 seconds.  Well, I say dash…  Best to think of the 33.6mpg (combined) fuel economy instead.  The CO2 figure is 222g/km.

On sale now, the Grand Voyager starts at £27,995 and goes up to £35,995 on the road.
