Chrysler tweaks Grand Voyager for 2011

Chrysler, now under the ownership of Fiat, has tweaked its Grand Voyager people carrier with changes for the 2011 model year. Along with a new winged badge and facelifted front end, the seven-seater gets enhanced LED tail lamps, a new rear bumper and revised tailgate. Prices start at £27,995.

There is also a new Stow ‘n Place roof rack system, standard on Touring and Limited models. This allows the vehicle’s roof crossbars to be stowed alongside the roof rails when not in use. Inside, the new Grand Voyager has improved Stow ‘n Go seating. For 2011, the new second rowseats are larger, more comfortable captain’s chairs, which feature a new ‘fold-into-the-floor’ one-touch mechanism. The system automatically drops the head rest and tumbles the seat forward, ready to be stowed – all with just one lever.

The interior of the facelifted Grand Voyager gets a new leather wrapped steering wheel, steering wheel audio controls and cruise control as standard. Touring models get Bluetooth with voice recognition, an auto dimming rear view mirror, a 30Gb hard disk drive and a rear reversing camera. Limited models also receive blind spot monitoring, crosspath detection and new Nappa leather upholstery.

All Grand Voyagers are powered by a 2.8-litre CRD diesel engine producing 161bhp at 3800rpm and 360Nm of torque. This gives the people carrier a 0-62mph time of 12.8 seconds and a top speed of 115mph. Yet the car can return 33.6mpg (combined) fuel economy and has a CO2figure of 222g/km.

Prices (OTR) for the new Chrysler Grand Voyager are as follows:

LX  £27,995
Touring £29,995
Limited £35,995
