Chrysler Voyager Origins
When Plymouth’s future was in jeopardy, in 2000, Chrysler took over production of the Voyager. This gave Chrysler the advantage of having a minivan at both ends of the price spectrum: a low-end minivan (the Voyager) and the Town & Country at the upscale end of the market. During the 2000 model year, the Voyager was sold as both a Plymouth and a Chrysler.
Chrysler introduced the Voyager, a shortened-wheelbase minivan, in 2000. Originally made by Plymouth, the Voyager was rebranded as a Chrysler when Plymouth ceased operations. Available in a base model and SE model, the Chrysler Voyager offers a great value to minivan buyers. Seating seven, it comes equipped with a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine and a three-speed automatic transmission.
The Chrysler Voyager ceased production after model year 2003.About the Chrysler Voyager

From 1984 to 1999, Chrysler’s Plymouth division produced the Voyager. The T-Plus Value package was introduced for the 2000 model year, when the van was marketed in the U.S. as both a Chrysler and a Plymouth.
The 2001 model houses a 3.3-liter V-6 engine, which offers more power to the Voyager. Dual sliding doors, side airbags, and an improved suspension all work together to enhance the van’s safety, comfort, and performance. The body is also sleeker than that of previous models, resulting in a very attractive package for consumers.
In 2002, Chrysler released the eC model, offering a lower purchase price. It doesn’t offer many frills, but it is designed to lure the budget-minded purchaser. The eC model did not carry over into the 2003 model year (which was the final year of production for the Voyager).
