2013 Lancia Voyager gets a diesel engine, heads to Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on March 1, 2013

We’re introducing the Lancia Voyager range, consisting of three trim levels: Silver, Gold and Platinum. This lineup, which is described by the company as the benchmark of the large MPV segment, is available with two engines. These are the new 178 HP 2.8L Euro 5 turbo diesel and the 283 HP 3.6L V6 Pentastar petrol engine.

Set to make its debut on the Lancia Voyager is the 2.8 common-rail turbodiesel engine with the unmatched 178 HP (131 kW) version. The engine is equipped with an impressive fuel supply system, which because of the maximum torque of 360 Nm produced on a highly extensive operating range (from 1,400 to 3,400 rpm), makes the vehicle more flexible and responsive in any driving condition.

The four-cylinder engine with four valves per cylinder and dual overhead camshaft with belt control comes with a high pressure 1,800 bar common rail injection system with piezo injectors and a variable geometry turbocharger.

The Lancia Voyager 178 HP 2.8 turbodiesel is capable of reaching a top speed of 193 km/h and can make the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in 11.5 seconds. Its fuel consumption on the type-approved combined cycle is 7.9 l/100 km while it emits 207 g/km of CO2. The 2013 Lancia Voyager range features the groundbreaking 'Trailer Sway Damping' as standard equipment.

It’s also available in the new metallic 'Maximum Steel' and 'Billet Silver' colours. Towing is safer since the electronic Trailer Sway Damping system is designed to spot sudden movements of the trailer and helps to prevent oscillation.

All trim levels come with a generous range of standard equipment such as a set of 17" alloy wheels and roof rails (black on the Gold trim level and chrome-plated on the Platinum trim level). In addition, the front and rear seats are upholstered in top quality leather. The Gold and Platinum trim levels offer the heating function and electrically-controlled adjustment. Furthermore, the steering wheel with audio controls and gear lever knob also get leather upholstery.

New Lancia Voyager is specified with technologies that help make its occupants comfortable whether in terms of cabin noise or interior temperature. Lancia was able to make the interior comfortable and free from unwanted noise and vibration by employing new acoustic panels and silencers as well as by adopting features like the automatic triple-zone climate control system, redesigned suspensions and specially designed tires.

Likewise, the electrically controlled roof, Super Console, the sliding doors and tailgate as well as the "keyless entry/go" system contribute to the overall comfort of the Voyager’s occupants. Further convenience is provided through the Stow 'n Go system, which could free up needed space for rear passengers and their cargo, without needing to remove any seats.

Amazingly, the Lancia Voyager comes installed with Uconnect, a modern infotainment system that allows drivers to control four primary aspects of the vehicle, mainly regarding information and entertainment. These aspects include navigation, multimedia system, phone and Internet connection (available through Mopar). Uconnect is an advanced infotainment device that ensures that the Voyager’s occupants are connected with the outside world while on a trip.

UConnect also helps ensure that the driver and passengers remain comfortable while enjoying themselves with available entertainment options. Not only that, Uconnect encourages road safety as it allows drivers to operate vehicle functions without having to take their hands off the steering wheel and their eyes off the road.
