Chrysler Voyager for Sale in Nigeria
The Chrysler Voyager is a luxury minivan manufactured by the Chrysler LLP of the USA. The Voyager is very rarely marketed in the USA, it is manufactured particularly for sale in Europe, Mexico and other export markets. The Chrysler Voyager was first presented to automobile critics and aficionados at the Cincinnati Motor Show in 1987 as a replacement for the Plymouth Voyager which was another minivan manufactured by Chrysler. The response by the public, marketers and the critics was so positive and overwhelming that Chrysler decided to retire the Plymouth Voyager as well as its sister minivan the Chrysler Ephedra which was marketed only in Europe from the market. Chrysler started manufacturing the Chrysler Voyager in 1988 and it’s been 27 years now that the voyager has been in production. Also known as the Chrysler Town & Country, both model names are available in Nigeria.

What to know when Buying Chrysler Voyager
Performance and Specifications of Chrysler Voyager

- The Chrysler Voyager is only available in six speed automatic configuration.
- It is available as a five door version in which the rear doors are sliders while the fifth entry is a vertical hatchback.
- It is available in both petrol and diesel versions.
How is the design of Chrysler Voyager
The Chrysler Voyager has a very interesting design history. It was first sold as the Dodge Caravan so the design team tried to have a design as close to that of the Dodge Caravan so as to maintain the marketing and sales momentum. Later on, Chrysler decided to market the Voyager as a luxury minivan which gave the designers more flexibility and freedom because they were now working with a completely new product. The Chrysler Voyager comes in two versions, with the bigger of the two called the Chrysler Grand Voyager.
What are the best features of the Chrysler Voyager?
The standout feature of Chrysler Voyager would be its powerful V6 engine. The V6 engine is a proprietary engine technology developed by Mitsubishi Motor Co. of Japan, and Chrysler licences this technology from Mitsubishi and incorporated it in the Chrysler Voyager design. Due to the V6 engine and the 3.8L cylinder, the Chrysler Voyager is one of the most powerful minivans on the market.
