We test Chrysler's new Grand Voyager is top-spec CRD Limited guise
30 Jul 2008
DID Chrysler’s previous German owners force the Volkswagen Caravelle-style proportions onto the latest version of its iconic Grand Voyager series? Whatever, the latest people-mover from one of the segment’s pioneers does exactly what it says on the err... box. In top-line CRD Limited guise, there’s an Italian diesel engine to help haul the portly American seven-seater around, while almost every conceivable comfort and convenience item available in this segment is also present. So is the car underneath as square as the styling?

THE fourth-generation Chrysler people-mover (and the second version to be sold in Australia since early 1997) brought a number of refinements to what is essentially the same package as the GS Voyager. For a time, Chrysler even got creative and offered long and short wheelbases and front or all-wheel drive, but the basic seven-seater arrangement remained, as did the availability of the company’s long-serving 128kW/278Nm 3.3-litre OHV V6 petrol engine, driving through a four-speed automatic. The Series II from November 2004 ditched the short wheelbase, but introduced ‘Stow ‘n Go’ to greatly enhance load-carrying capacity.
