2020 Chrysler Pacifica vs 2020 Chrysler Voyager: Who Wore it Better?

The comeback of the Chrysler Pacifica a few years ago reinvented the minivan segment and left the competition struggling to catch up. The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica widens the gap, keeping the style and driving quality, and adding some great new features. But there's a change in the works for the new model year with the introduction of a strikingly similar new Chrysler minivan. The 2020 Chrysler Voyager puts a new name on a very familiar-looking vehicle. What's going on here? Gillman Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM sorts it all out.

2020 Chrysler Pacifica

The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica drops the L and LX trims, leaving the Touring trim the new base trim. The powertrains, whether gas-powered or the Chrysler Pacific Hybrid, remain unchanged from years past. This year sees the addition of a Red S appearance package for the Limited trim, a new honeycomb grille for the hybrid models, an optional two-pane sunroof, standard driver's seat memory on the Touring L and Touring L Plus models, and additions like second-row one-touch windows and a universal garage door opener on the hybrid models. But where'd the missing trims go?

  • 6L Pentastar engine
  • 287hp / 252 lb-ft torque
  • Nine-speed automatic transmission

2020 Chrysler Voyager

The L and LX trims are now two of the three trims available on the 2020 Chrysler Voyager. The third, an LXi trim, is only available as a fleet vehicle and features a leatherette interior. If not for the badge on the liftgate, you'd be hard-pressed to tell the two apart from the outside, since they are identical. They also have the same exact engine and transmission. So what's the point? The Chrysler Voyager is a more cost-conscious alternative, while the Chrysler Pacifica gets more advanced technology and more luxury amenities. If you have a growing family and you're more concerned with utility than with luxury, it's a great alternative. If, on the other hand, the kids are grown a bit, the Chrysler Pacifica gives you added comfort features and luxury.

With all that being said, are these the same minivan? In some ways that really matter - the powertrain, chassis, and build quality chief among them - the answer is an emphatic yes. The Chrysler Voyager may be a less expensive choice, but it's by no means a lesser option.

But they also diverge in some important respects that should make your buying decision easier, since the Chrysler Pacifica isn't targeted at fleet use, and the Chrysler Voyager does not offer a hybrid option. Other differences are probably best seen at your Houston Chrysler dealership, accompanied by a test drive.
