Chrysler Pacifica Review

When you need to command the road with a passenger-filled cabin, the Chrysler Pacifica is the minivan for you. At LaFontaine Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) of Saline, we’ve written a thorough Chrysler Pacifica review for our friends and neighbors in and around Saline, Ypsilanti, and Ann Arbor, MI.

Read on below!


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.


Chrysler Pacifica: Family-Focused Comforts

When you’re traveling, comfort is a big deal. This is especially so when taking your family on trips or short runs to the store. You’ll want them to experience a pleasure cruise in the back rows of the Pacifica, able to kick back and stretch out their legs or have a great degree of movement in the cabin itself.

As you’ll see in the cabin measurements, the Pacifica offers a generous amount of space for all rows. Even the driver will have a comfortable driving experience.

The following dimensions further cement this argument:

  • Headroom (front row/rear row/third row): 40.1 inches/39.6 inches/38.7 inches
  • Legroom (front row/rear row/third row): 41.1 inches/ 39 inches/36.5 inches
  • Hip room (front row/rear row/third row): 59 inches/64.8 inches/49.5 inches
  • Shoulder room (front row/rear row/third row): 63.8 inches/63 inches/ 61.2 inches

Chrysler Pacifica: Infotainment Options

The base model of the Pacifica comes with the necessities of communication—an AM/FM/Satellite radio, external digital memory control, and steering wheel audio controls. This is but a taste of what’s to come. On the higher trims, the Pacifica offers access to the Uconnect® 5 infotainment system, with 19 available widgets that allow you to fully customize settings for five different user profiles. In a family vehicle, this could mean drivers of all ages.

You’ll also have access to the available SiriusXM® with 360L. This feature grants you access to a library of over 200+ channels, personalized content and recommendations, and the bonus of complete voice control and mobile sync. Another available feature is standard Android Auto™ compatibility, which lets you concentrate on your driving instead of your device. The interface allows you to access weather forecasts, make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to music.
