The all new Chrysler Grand Voyager was launched in March 2008 - replacing the popular outgoing model which had been with us since 2001. It also marks the demise of the more popular smaller Voyager.

The new Chrysler Grand Voyager is available with a choice of petrol or diesel engine, 6-speed automatic transmission and three equipment levels: LX, Touring and Limited. Prices start at £26,000 for the 2.8 CRD LX 6-speed automatic and rise to £33,000 for either the 2.8 CRD Limited 6-speed automatic or 3.8 V6 petrol Limited 6-speed automatic.

We drove the top of the range diesel model - the Chrysler Grand Voyager Limited fitted with a 2.8 CRD diesel engine mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox.

The new Chrysler Grand Voyager offers a choice of two engines: a petrol 3.8-litre V6 engine and the far more popular and sensible 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine that is commonly seen in the Jeep range.

Our test car was fitted with the 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine which outputs 161 bhp at 3800 rpm and produces 265 lb/ft of torque between 1600 rpm and 3000 rpm. Which propels the Grand Voyager from 0-62 mph in 12.8 seconds and onto a top speed of 115 mph.

The 2.8 CRD engine does seem to run out of puff up hill, which is especially apparent on the motorway. Of course the automatic gearbox changes down but it can all feel a little too lethargic to be enjoyable.
