High strength steels lead to a five-star rating for 2020 Chrysler Voyager

The 2020 Chrysler Voyager has received a five-star rating from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The Voyager is the latest Chrysler vehicle to earn the highest NHTSA rating, joining the Chrysler Pacifica in this elite club.

Around 72 percent of the 2020 Chrysler Voyager minivan is made from high strength steel (HSS). The vehicle’s excellent crash performance also relies on steel shaping technologies such as hydroforming. That has enabled the carmaker to create intricately molded load beams which provide greater strength and stiffness than welded components.

The minivan’s door ring is assembled from laser welded blanks (LWBs) which utilize sections of hot-stamped steel. The sections are combined to maintain structural integrity in various crash scenarios.

The Voyager’s cradle and front rails utilize advanced high strength steel (AHSS) which is configured to help steer crash energy away from the passenger compartment.

The extensive use of HSS, LWBs, and advanced steel-forming technologies helped to ensure the 2020 Chrysler Voyager received five-star ratings in every NHTSA crash test mode including:

  • Front driver- and passenger-side impact
  • Overall frontal impact
  • Front and rear seat barrier and pole side impact
  • Driver- and rear passenger-side barrier impact
  • Side barrier impact
  • Overall side pole impact
