Brand new ship, in a relatively new design (Intrepid Class). Janeway was USS Voyager's first Captain. The mission to hunt down Chakotay was literally USS Voyager's first ever mission. It got lost in the Delta Quadrant, straight out of spacedock. It might have set a record for fastest disaster.
USS Voyager was not the first ship in that new design (that would logically be the USS Intrepid), but it was fairly close to it. It was probably at least in the very first batch of production-line models, after the prototype. It might have been the first production-line model.
It included a lot of bleeding-edge tech, like the EMH.
