Chrysler did something strange almost a year ago. The company has revived the old Voyager nickname and made it the new Chrysler entry-level minivan. It was actually just a Chrysler Pacifica with a new bath, and as such, the Pacifica's lowest trim levels were lowered. Now Chrysler has an updated Pacifica with fresh technology and a significant facelift. But the changes don't seem to hit Voyager.

A report by MotorTrend suggests that Chrysler's Matt Davis will have different faces from Pacifica and Voyager at least for the time being. The Voyager will continue with its current design, while the Pacifica will be converted to the new look from model year 2021. It makes sense to differentiate the clone-like minivans. It makes the distinction between entry-level models and the automaker's upscale models clearer and gives potential Pacifica buyers a slightly greater incentive to open their paperbacks.
There is an additional incentive for Pacifica buyers that goes beyond the updated skin. The Model 2021 receives additional technology in the form of the company's new Uconnect 5 system, which can be accessed via a 10.1-inch infotainment screen. Top models from Pinnacle get nappa leather seats and a redesigned center console that offers more storage space. There is also Pacifica's new torque vectoring all-wheel drive system, which can direct power to all four corners as needed, and yes, that includes sending all power to only the rear wheels.
Sure enough reason to choose the Pacifica over Voyager, but the entry-level minivan still has awards. For starters, it checks in under $ 30,000 and still uses Pacifica's 3.6-liter V6 engine. It's also available with a modest number of technology and driver safety systems, and nothing says Chrysler won't add an additional kit to Voyager's portfolio later this year.
