Measuring 199.6 inches long, the 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager marks a fairly large minivan, as the name implies. It remains smaller than some of its competitors, but it comes closer than most. The exterior looks attractive, but not particularly remarkable compared to competitors. Standard features include power mirrors, and the Espresso adds a rear window defroster. Alloy wheels, a roof rack, power heated mirrors, keyless entry, and a camper towing package provide optional features.
The Grand Voyager offers a spacious interior, which seats up to seven passengers. The 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE offers cruise control, an AM/FM radio, and a cassette player as standard equipment. The Grand Voyager Expresso adds air-conditioning. Dual-zone air conditioning, an overhead console, captain’s chairs, integrated child seats, power seats, a CD player, Infinity audio, and an anti-theft alarm system provide options.
The Plymouth Grand Voyager offers solid performance overall. The three-liter, six-cylinder base engine provides good acceleration. The optional 3.3-liter, six-cylinder and 3.8-liter, six-cylinder engine options improve acceleration without hurting fuel economy too badly. The handling feels quite tight for a vehicle of this size. The 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager even outturns some larger sedans, although most cars outperform it in terms of steering and handling.
The 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager upgrades the airbags on all models to next-generation depowered versions. Some of the interior features get redesigns to improve quality. The Grand Voyager Expresso marks a new model for this year.
