DESIGN
Chrysler Pacifica

As a minivan, the Pacifica’s four trims feature big sliding doors for loading in and exiting, high seatbacks to attach child car seats, and a large cargo hold to accommodate playpens, strollers, and sports gear. For the latest model year, the Pacifica has been redesigned with a new fascia and an updated interior, making the Chrysler Pacifica a minivan for the modern age.

Family-Friendly Features

Transporting your crew for school drop-offs, to away games, or on the annual family vacation needn’t be purely utilitarian. Cruise in comfort with a variety of standard features that include:

  • 8-way power driver seat with 4-way power lumbar
  • Heated front seats
  • Dual zone climate control
  • Separate HVAC controls for rear-row passengers
  • Front and rear beverage holders

Third-row access is made simple with Easy Tilt Seating. Speaking of that rear row, the Pacifica’s class-exclusive available Stow-n-Go back seats fold down under the floor to offer more cargo room or accommodate larger items. Plus, you can easily sweep up dropped snacks and other daily dirt with the available Stow ‘n Vac®.

Room for Everyone—and Everything

When part of your daily to-do list involves people moving, you’ll want to be sure that you have enough room to accommodate them all. The Chrysler Pacifica seats up to eight and offers up to 243 different seating configurations to set up your ever-changing passenger-to-cargo ratio. It provides 165 cubic feet of passenger volume, so how is that space distributed among its three rows?

Dimension
1st Row
2nd Row
3rd Row
Headroom 40.1 inches 39.6 inches 38.7 inches
Legroom 41.1 inches 39 inches 36.5 inches

Of course, with people comes stuff—and sometimes a lot of it. Thankfully, the cargo hold behind its third row can carry 32.3 cubic feet of gear. When you fold down the second and third rows, you’ll have a maximum 140.5 cubic feet of cargo space to load.

EFFICIENCY
Chrysler Pacifica

You don’t drive a minivan for extreme amounts of horsepower (HP). That said, the Pacifica’s 3.6L V6 delivers a respectable 287 HP and 262 lb-ft of torque, so you’ll get reliably from Point A to Point B. As you constantly transport your fam and their essentials here and there, will the Pacifica be able to do so efficiently?

More Miles of Smiles

The Chrysler Pacifica is an economical on-road companion, ensuring you can go the extra mile—and then some. Its powertrain yields an EPA-estimated 19 city/28 highway MPG. With its 19-gallon tank, you’ll be able to travel over 530 miles before pulling up to the pump to refuel.

Several features of the Pacifica’s powertrain aid its efficiency. The front-wheel drivetrain offers better handling and weight distribution while providing increased traction in wet or slippery conditions. Meanwhile, its 9-speed automatic transmission ensures the engine runs at its most efficient RPM, which reduces fuel consumption and emissions.

Say Hi to a Hybrid

To further reduce your carbon footprint and help ensure the future of your children’s world, choose the Chrysler Pacifica PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle). It’s America’s first and only plug-in hybrid minivan. Easily charge it overnight using the equipped Level 1 charger in a conventional 120-volt AC grounded wall outlet. For faster, 2-hour at-home charging time, you can have a Level 2 charger installed. Its regenerative braking feature even helps charge the Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid while driving.

It yields an all-electric range of 32 miles for quick errands to the store or the team’s local practice and an EPA-estimated 82 MPGe (miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent). Plus, its Hybrid Electric App provides easy access to all the info you need:

  • Check range (electric, hybrid, and total)
  • Get charge status updates
  • Find charging stations
  • And more

TECHNOLOGY
Chrysler Pacifica

Today’s drivers require in-vehicle state-of-the-art technologies to enhance their travels. When that vehicle is a minivan filled with family or friends, it becomes even more crucial. Fortunately, in the case of the Chrysler Pacifica, you and yours will remain both connected and protected.

Included Infotainment

The Pacifica continues to raise the bar and exceed expectations. As the most technologically advanced minivan in its class, it includes a vast array of standard and available infotainment features:

  • Uconnect® 5 system with 10-inch touchscreen - Access your playlists, podcasts, and navigation and save the settings for up to five different users
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ - Make calls, send messages, view maps, access Siri®, etc.
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi® Hotspot - Your passengers can browse the internet, stream shows and movies, and send/receive emails
  • SiriusXM® with 360L - Enjoy over 200 channels of music, kids’ content, sports, and more
  • Rear-Seat Entertainment - Your back-row passengers can play games, stream videos, and more with the dual 10-inch touchscreens and Amazon Fire TV built-in

Those features, along with the available 19-speaker Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System, will put an end to the constant chorus of “Are we there yet?”

Peace of Mind Comes Standard

Of course, the most important technologies are those features that help keep you safe. The Chrysler Pacifica has over 115 standard safety and security features—the most in its class. These include:

  • Full-Speed Forward Collison Warning with Active Braking
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go
  • LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist
  • Blind Spot Monitoring System and Rear Cross Path Detection
  • ParkSense® Rear Park Assist

If that weren’t enough, you can access next-level protection with a variety of additional safety features. New for the most recent model year is the Emergency Vehicle Alert System that helps you take action to avoid potential accidents. Clearly, the engineers at Chrysler take your safety as seriously as you do.

Chrysler Pacifica vs. The Competition
Chrysler Pacifica Honda Odyssey

The Chrysler Pacifica and the Honda Odyssey share many similarities beyond their size: same engine, similar horsepower, and exact same fuel economy. Basics aside, you’ll want to know how well each model keeps you and your crew engaged and entertained. Either model would function well as your next people mover, although the Pacifica brings far more family fun to its function.

A minivan is a minivan, right? In comparing the Chrysler Pacifica and the Kia Carnival, it soon becomes apparent that nothing could be further from the truth. If you want more major comforts in your next minivan—not to mention more safety features—without having to upgrade, choose the Pacifica. It’s fair to say, it’s the real carnival on wheels.

Chrysler Pacifica Toyota Sienna

The Toyota Sienna is only available as a hybrid. Still, it’s not a PHEV (plug-in hybrid) as is available with the Chrysler Pacifica. So, to level the playing field, it’s best to compare these two models in areas outside their powertrains. In examining their infotainment features and ability to stow and go, the Pacifica proves the better choice.
