Chrysler has had a difficult time of late. Uncreative design, a lack of interior features, and overall poor quality has caused the Detroit manufacturer to lag far behind fellow American carmakers. Chrysler is looking to reverse this with the launch of the new Pacifica minivan. If the name sounds familiar that is because the Pacifica actually started as a mid-size crossover sold between 2004 and 2008 however after a nearly ten year hiatus, the Pacifica is back and ready to take on the best Honda and Toyota have to offer. Right off the bat you’ll notice that the Pacifica has similar “Chrysler” design elements however these elements have been evolved to make the Pacifica more than stand out from the pack. The front fascia looks clean and polished rather than overly athletic (Dodge Grand Caravan we’re looking at you) while the side profile has subtle creases in the body giving the Pacifica a longer, elegant look. Larger wheels look at home while the LED taillights manage to make the minivan look (dare we say) “cool”.
The Chrysler Pacifica is powered by the familiar FCA Pentastar 3.6L V6 sending 287-hp and 262 lb/ft of torque to the front wheels via a nine-speed automatic. A hybrid variant with an EV range of 30 miles will eventually make its way to the streets later this summer. The Pacifica features hands-free power sliding doors and liftgate operated by having the key fob in your pocket and waving your hand or foot under the sensors in the doors/lifegate. Although it may not appear to be the best for towing, the Pacifica in fact boasts a 3,600lb towing capacity allowing you to tow any toys that might not fit inside the already expansive interior.
The new Pacifica is offered in both seven- or eight- passenger configurations for optimized room for passengers or cargo. A redesigned 8.4-inch screen contains all multimedia and navigational information however additional screens for the rear occupants are available. The Pacifica’s HDMI and 110V outlets allow for a traditional gaming system to be fitted inside the vehicle for rear occupants to enjoy on those longer drives. Of course Chrysler’s “Stow n’ Go” storage system is fit as standard allowing you to utilize as much or as little of the interior volume as you like. Those with messier children can even option an on-board vacuum to your Pacifica to easily clean up those messes without having to carry a full vacuum.
Chrysler is pulling out all the stops with the Pacifica and rightly so- Chrysler needs the Pacifica to sell and sell well to make up for an otherwise poor performance in the current market. Only time will tell to see if the American manufacturer can be saved by this next generation minivan. The Chrysler Pacifica competes against the Honda Odyssey, Kia Sedona, and Toyota Sienna.
