1995 Plymouth Grand Voyager Review
The leader of the pack.
Reviewed by Automotive on
The 1995 Plymouth Grand Voyager is a car manufactured by Chrysler under the Plymouth brand, and its history can be traced back to 1974 when it was offered as a rebadged Dodge Sportsman. This version of the Voyager was manufactured until 1983. In the following year, a completely new vehicle was launched with the same nameplate. The 1995 model belongs to its second generation, which began with a major revision and restyling in 1991.
Engines: 2.5-liter I-4, 3.0-liter V-6, 3.3-liter V-6, 3.8-liter V-6
Transmissions: three-speed automatic, four-speed automatic
Models: Plymouth Grand Voyager, Plymouth Grand Voyager SE, Plymouth Grand Voyager LE
The 1995 Plymouth Grand Voyager has undergone very few changes since the last year. The most important change is the inclusion of ABS as a standard for the LE trim. A new Rally package is available for the SE, which is a cosmetic overhaul for the vehicle. The package includes tinted glass, two-toned paint on the outside, and 15-inch alloy wheels. The four-speed automatic transmission has also been tweaked a bit.
The aero styled appearance that was added in 1991 has been retained for the 1995 Plymouth Grand Voyager as well. It uses the AS platform, and gets its sleek aero styling with the help of sheet metal with rounder corners. The SWB has a wheelbase of 112.3 inches, while the extended model has a wheelbase of 119.3 inches. The length is 178.1 inches for the SWB and 192.8 inches.
The 1995 Plymouth Grand Voyager is one of its strongest suits. Up front, the controls on the dash have been designed with the driver’s convenience in mind. The climate and radio controls are very close to the driver, and the key controls are accessible without any obstruction. The center console contains pullout cup holders, and a large glove compartment at the passenger side can be locked as well.
Performance & Handling
The 1995 Plymouth Grand Voyager can be fitted with four different engine options. The first is a 2.5-liter, straight-four engine that delivers 100 horsepower and 135 lb-ft of torque. The second one is a 3.0-liter, V-6 engine that delivers 142 horsepower and 173 lb-ft of torque. The third engine option is a 3.3-liter, V-6 engine that delivers 150 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the most powerful engine option is the 3.8-liter V-6 that delivers 162 horsepower and 213 lb-ft of torque. From the power figures given below, the straight-four engine stands out from other engines, and not in a good way. All three V-6 engines do its jobs very well as compared to the underpowered 100 hp four-cylinder engine. The least powerful V-6 offers decent acceleration, while the biggest one offers quite an impressive performance. The 3.3-liter engine deserves a special mention for being the most responsive and refined of them all. The suspension is recalibrated to reduce body roll and gives the vehicle its carlike road manners. Steering is precise, and the vehicle remains stable even while maneuvering around sharp turns.
The 1995 Plymouth Grand Voyager receives four out of five stars in terms of driver and passenger safety during frontal impact collision tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or NHTSA.
