October 23, 2007 , Tokyo - At the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show with the Asian premiere of the all-new Chrysler Grand Voyager, Chrysler LLC raises the bar for the minivan segment with an all-new interior and exterior design and more than 30 new or improved features. This debut is complemented by the Asian premiere of the restyled Chrysler 300C, which enhances the modern and classic design.

With its line-up at the Tokyo Motor Show, the Chrysler brand continues to showcase its unique ability to deliver refined driving performance and relaxed, elegant style, combined with high levels of quality, safety, innovation and value.

These values have been core to the Chrysler brand, ever since Walter P. Chrysler and his partners in the early 1920’s defined what the products of the brand would be: affordable “luxury” vehicles known for innovative, top-flight engineering.

All-new Chrysler Grand Voyager
With the debut of the all-new Chrysler Grand Voyager, the original minivan is all-new again. The latest Grand Voyager brings a cleaner, more tailored exterior design along with a sophisticated, refined interior and a long list of new or improved features.

The new Chrysler Grand Voyager features both the Swivel ’n Go™ seating system that enables a new level of family or business communications in the second and third rows, and a one-touch power folding third-row seat – both unique features that, yet again, set Chrysler MPVs apart from the competition.

Swivel ’n Go offers second-row seats that swivel 180 degrees to face the third row and a removable table that installs between the two rows, covered storage bins in the floor of the second row, third-row uncovered storage and fold-in-the-floor third-row seating. The industry-exclusive Stow ’n Go™ seating and storage system is standard, and the power folding third-row seat is available with either second-row seat system.

Standard comfort and convenience features include a new, removable sliding front console that is large enough to store a purse; heated first- and second-row leather seats; rear-view interior conversation mirror; YES Essentials stain-resistant, odour-resistant, anti-static cloth fabric; a removable flashlight in the rear quarter panel; first- and second-row power windows; second- and third-row retractable sun shades; power sliding doors; power liftgate with power button on the key fob and rear pillar; ambient halo lighting; movable, pinpoint LED reading lamps; map lights and a tri-zone heating and cooling system.

Meeting the demands of customers and their families, the all-new Chrysler Grand Voyager has a longer list of standard safety and security features than any Chrysler minivan in the past. Also, debuting for the first time is the six-speed automatic transaxle that is paired with the 3.8-litre V-6 petrol engine.

The all-new Chrysler Grand Voyager will arrive to the Japanese market in 2008. The feature availability for the Japanese market is yet to be announced.

Restyled Chrysler 300C
The restyled Chrysler 300C will also be on display at the Tokyo Motor Show. The dramatic exterior design of the 300C has been refreshed with minor changes to the taillamps. The 300C now features a rear deck lid with an SRT-inspired integrated spoiler and high-mounted stop light.

The interior design of the Chrysler 300C has also been enhanced with even more luxury appointments including: 

  • A new instrument panel and centre-console design
  • Soft-touch surfaces on arm rests and door panels
  • LED lighting in the front cup holders and front- and rear-door map pockets

In addition to an already long list of safety equipment, seat-mounted air bags have been added to the front and rear side-curtain air bags for increased driver and passenger safety.

The Chrysler 300C continues to be available with two engines: the 3.5-litre V-6 and 5.7-litre HEMI® V-8. The 300C offers a fuel-saving Multi-Displacement System (MDS) as standard on the V-8 engine.

The newest Chrysler 300C SRT8 model has also gained a fresh new exterior and even richer interior. The 300C SRT8 still features a 6.1-litre HEMI V-8 engine.

The restyled Chrysler 300C family will be available in the Japanese market starting in 2008.
