The new Chrysler Voyager LXi is introduced with a Power Fold-Out XT (Extra Tall) wheelchair van conversion from BraunAbility®. The new Voyager replaces the discontinued Dodge Grand Caravan product line that many have grown to love over the years. The Chrysler Voyager is built from its predecessor, the Chrysler Pacifica. The two vehicles are nearly identical, except for the available chassis packages currently being converted by BraunAbility®. The Chrysler Voyager will only be offered with the LXi package, while the Pacifica is available in a Touring-L, Touring-L Sport, and Touring-L Premium.
Since the Voyager is being built from its predecessor, Chrysler Pacifica, the conversion dimensions will be identical between the two vehicle models. Both models have the latest in advanced mobility technology. Since the Chrysler Pacifica wheelchair-accessible van features the most interior space, widest door opening, and the widest ramp of any other mobility vehicle in its class, the comparable Chrysler Voyager will also boast the same stats.
The BraunAbility® Fold-Out XT is designed for wheelchair users on a budget who sit taller in their chairs and who may need a wider door opening to accommodate a larger wheelchair. The Chrysler Voyager, Power Fold-Out XT features the following dimensions: 57-inch door opening height; 32.375-inch door opening width; 30.125 ramp width. Click here for additional buying tips.
One of the best things about any, BraunAbility® wheelchair-accessible vehicle is that they are all meticulously designed to be easy to operate while providing unmatched maneuverability. A few of the advanced features of the Chrysler Voyager Power Fold-Out XT include are a single-touch power entry and exit system via factory key-fob or set of interior switches found throughout the cabin. Easy-glide, power sliding doors. Power-operated, fold-out wheelchair ramp system. Automatically controlled kneeling system (reduces ramp angle). Removable front seats with removable cup holders allow upfront passenger or from-the-chair driving by the wheelchair user.
On the BraunAbility® Power Fold-Out XT, Chrysler Voyager handicap accessible vehicle, both sliding side doors are power operated as is the integrated, fold-out wheelchair ramp system. But you may ask, what if the vehicle experiences a loss of power? How would I be able to get out? It won’t be a problem! Every BraunAbility®, power-operated, wheelchair-accessible van features an integrated power backup system that can operate the ramp in the event of a power failure. Plus, the ramp can be pushed manually to deploy for a safe vehicle exit with a fold-out ramp system. For exact ramp specifications and dimensions, see the chart below.
When shopping for a wheelchair-accessible vehicle, the lowered floor is one of the main components. Reducing the foundation is the key element to allowing a wheelchair user to maneuver about the interior cabin of a vehicle safely and comfortably. In the BraunAbility® Power Fold-Out XT, Chrysler Voyager wheelchair conversion, the floor is lowered 14 inches. The drop in the floor takes place from the firewall (just behind the engine) to the rear axle. This lowering creates the taller door opening height for entry and exit and provides a wheelchair user a direct line-of-sight while driving or riding as a passenger.
Both front seats on the BraunAbility® Fold-Out XT, Chrysler Voyager wheelchair-accessible vehicle, are easily removed. The driver’s seat could be removed to allow a wheelchair user to drive directly from their wheelchair. The passenger seat could be removed to allow a wheelchair user to ride up front in the passenger position alongside the driver. Both seats are equipped with removable cup holders for added convenience.
