The badge engineering was something common after the Fiat-Chrysler-Alliance was formed and one of the models was the Chrysler Town&Country, which was re-badged as Lancia Voyager in 2011.
Italians had few minivans, but none of them had a noticeable success. Fiat tried to build some cars with Peugeot-Citroen in the ’90s but the result was bad for all of them. When Lancia tried to take the Chrysler MPV and sell it into Europe, it was a little bit more than just badge engineering, since it had some engine versions unavailable in the U.S.
From the design point of view, the only Lancia details were the grille and the badges. Other than that, it was just a regular Chrysler Town&Country with large sliding doors in the rear and a liftgate in the back. Even if it was a minivan, it tried desperately to look like a luxury vehicle instead of an MPV.
The car was built for the American roads, with a long wheelbase and plenty of inside room for up to 8 people. The third row was particularly interesting since it could be faced forward, rearward with the liftgate open, or completely hidden under the floor. The triple-zone climate control was offered as an option. The driver had all the controls and buttons needed for a comfortable drive. The automatic gearbox was a standard fit and the gear selector was strangely placed next to the instrument cluster, on the dashboard.
While in the U.S. The Chrysler had only gasoline engines, in Europe the Lancia Voyager was offered with a diesel version as well.
