2008 Ford Shelby Gt500kr

When the first 2008 Ford Shelby Gt500kr was launched from the mid-80s, it established the Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) since we know it today, a vehicle with seven or eight seats that drives like a car. It had been such a hit that it sent all car makers, including the Japanese and Europeansback to the drawing boards to develop their own MPV versions.

Twenty years on, using nearly every carmaker having its own interpretation of the Voyager, Chrysler has had to continually upgrade its MPVs to keep a lead in the segment that it created. The present Grand Voyager is that most demanding version and has been launched in the late 90s. It had an outside facelift two years back, and this season it receives the radical'Stow n Go' seats.

Flexibility has always been crucial to the appeal of this MPV, but eliminating the seats and finding somewhere to store it's a problem, particularly in the Asian markets in which people do not frequently have garages. Before'Stow n Go', the Grand Voyager had little castors beneath their seats so they could be wheeled about, however they were incredibly heavy to lift from their car.  The remedy is for seats which don't have to be raised out, but totally disappear into the floor.

In actuality, the vanishing third row seat isn't a new idea the first'96 Honda Odyssey had a third row bench that folded and turned to a well in the floor, and the Voyager adopts the idea. Nevertheless, it's the folding of the next row seats that's particularly smart. After five easy steps, and the tugging of several straps and tabs, the whole seat literally disappears to the floor without a trace. This is all the more impressive since the seat adjustment functions are not compromised when vertical, it can both slide and recline.

The secret of course, is to have a seat that folds to as compact a package as possible, which is accomplished by having both swab and backrest of equivalent length. This ends in a rather low backrest for an otherwise comfy seat. This means that for most adults, so the headrest has to be increased to block it from cutting to the middle of the backs.

The mechanicals of this Grand Voyager remain largely unchanged with a torquey 3.3-litre V6 making it sense well-powered and relaxed. Cruising is very effortless in the Chrysler, and there is an impressive lack of road- or - engine-noise. It's also exceedingly well-equipped using a roof-mounted DVD player and a lot of storage places.

There is also an abundance of automation around the Grand Voyager.  Both the sliding back doors are power-operated, since is the tailgate, and are the hinged rear windows.

Everything can be controlled by the driver's seat, which is very convenient. {The doors can also be opened and closed remotely {with|using all|using} the key fob, helpful on rainy days or when the hands are complete. |} The integration of a reversing monitor screen to the rear view mirror is also very thoughtful - it is a surprise nobody else has thought of doing this. Quite clearly, the people at Chrysler are not resting on their laurels, but have continually added more convenient characteristics to this MPV.

The only quirk inside this otherwise remarkable MPV will be that the whole steering columns, together with the stems, are taken from a left handed push car. This usually means the column gearshift is about the driver's correct, when in most cases it's operated by the left hand. Aside from that, the Grand Voyager continues to impress, also maintains its title as the ultimate MPV, if size and price were no object.
