Chrysler Pacifica: Power & Performance
The Pacifica comes equipped with a powerful 3.6L V6 DOHC engine that’s paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission, allowing for smooth and quick shifting. However, the power output of the Pacifica is where it really shines. Achieving 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, it is a bit of a beast out on the road, giving you non-traditional power in a classic design.
We’d be wrong not to discuss the impressive fuel economy the Pacifica offers. Starting with a 19-gallon fuel tank as your first indicator, you’ll quickly understand why you’ll barely touch it. The EPA-estimates for the Pacifica’s MPG are 19 city/28 highway/22 combined. What this means for you as a driver is that your Pacifica can easily navigate a weekend in the city or a cross-country road trip to visit family without having to stop to top off the tank as often as you may have before.
Although the Pacifica base trim comes with front-wheel drive, the upper trims offer the available and only fully automatic All-Wheel-Drive System in this vehicle segment. This system is capable of transferring 100 percent of the available engine torque to the wheels with the most traction to help get the Pacifica across difficult terrain.
