Which Pacifica Hybrid does Edmunds recommend?

The most appealing Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the Limited trim level. It is the most expensive version of the plug-in seven-seater, but it also has a serious suite of gear. On top of all the base equipment, you get adaptive cruise control, heated and ventilated front seats, and USB ports in both rear rows. What's more, the Pacifica Hybrid Limited is the only trim level where you can get the optional Advanced SafetyTec Group that includes a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, lane departure mitigation, parallel and perpendicular parking assist, and forward parking sensors. It packs a lot of feature content in, even if it is a bit pricey.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

The Chrysler Pacifica has a lot going for it. It has more style than the typical minivan. Its Stow 'n Go seats make for easy transport of large items. The infotainment system is easy to use. There are abundant safety and tech features to choose from. And almost all of this appeal transfers over to the 2019 Pacifica Hybrid.

Sure, the hybrid doesn't get the second-row Stow 'n Go seats (the hybrid battery fits in their storage compartment), but the fixed captain's chairs in their place are actually more comfortable. Plus, that hybrid powertrain significantly improves fuel economy since its plug-in capability allows for about 33 miles of electric range on a full charge. For some drivers, that's enough to avoid using gasoline for weeks or even longer. Once you do run out of electricity, the EPA estimates that it will return 32 mpg combined, which is 10 mpg higher than the standard van.

By some minivan standards, the Pacifica Hybrid also has some drawbacks. The 2019 Honda Odyssey, for example, is better to drive, is more spacious, and has a more versatile seating setup. It's also worth noting that the Pacifica Hybrid is significantly more expensive than the gas-only Pacifica van, especially at base trim levels. There are potential fuel savings and tax rebates to consider, but those aren't realized at the time of purchase.

In the end, if you're looking for a minivan with plug-in power, the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the only option out there. It isn't our favorite van, but it certainly has several virtues that make it worth considering.

Trim levels & features

The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is a three-row minivan that seats seven passengers. It's available in three well-equipped trim levels: Touring Plus, Touring L and Limited.

Every Pacifica Hybrid has a 3.6-liter V6 engine augmented with two electric motors (260 horsepower total). It can travel about 33 miles on electric power alone. After that, the V6 and normal hybrid operation take over. A 240-volt power supply can fully recharge the 16-kWh battery pack in about two hours.

Standard exterior features on the Touring Plus include 17-inch wheels, automatic headlights, foglights, power-sliding doors, heated mirrors and keyless entry and ignition. Inside, you'll find an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat (with four-way power lumbar), a driver information display, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, tri-zone automatic climate control, ambient lighting, cloth upholstery, second-row power windows and a 60/40-split folding third-row seat.

Technology features include an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, Bluetooth, voice commands, and a six-speaker audio system with HD and satellite radio, a USB port and an auxiliary jack. Standard driver aids include a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. The Cold Weather Group adds heated front seats and a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel. A power liftgate is available as a stand-alone option.

The Touring L adds the power liftgate, roof rails, remote ignition, an upgraded center console, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, the Cold Weather Group, leather upholstery, and second- and third-row window shades. The Premium Audio Group adds an eight-way power passenger seat, second- and third-row USB ports, active noise control and a 13-speaker Alpine sound system.

Both Touring models can be ordered with a navigation system, which also adds 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, and a rear-seat entertainment system that includes a DVD player and a single overhead display screen.

Upgrades to the top-level Limited are numerous. On the outside, the Limited adds automatic high-beam control, power-folding mirrors (with driver-side auto-dimming), automatic wipers, chrome trim, and hands-free operation for the sliding doors and liftgate. Inside, you'll find adaptive cruise control, upgraded leather, an upgraded steering wheel, driver-seat memory settings, ventilated front seats, the navigation system, and the Premium Audio Group contents. A 20-speaker Harman Kardon audio system is available for the Limited as well.

Optional on the Limited is the Uconnect Theater w/ Streaming package that includes a Blu-ray player, two seatback video screens, a household-style power outlet, wireless headphones and wireless streaming from connected Android devices. The Limited's optional Advanced SafetyTec Group adds front parking sensors, lane departure warning, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, parallel and perpendicular parking assist, and a 360-degree parking camera. A panoramic sunroof and 18-inch wheels are also optional.

Standard on the Limited and optional on the other models is a secondary driver key that Chrysler calls KeySense. Intended for younger drivers and valets, this key starts the car in a mode that limits top speed and volume, keeps all driver aids activated and restricts user-defined satellite radio channels.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our initial testing of the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Limited (3.6L V6 plug-in hybrid | CVT automatic | FWD).


Whether you want to evaluate using minivan or hybrid standards, the Pacifica Hybrid performs well. It's considerably heavier because of its hybrid componentry, but you won't notice it much in everyday driving. Acceleration is decent, and it's easy to drive.


There's only a total of 260 horsepower, and the Hybrid weighs more than a regular Pacifica. Even so, acceleration from a stop is brisk thanks to the electric motor's added low-end torque output.


In regular driving, the brakes are easy to modulate with a short pedal travel, and they have good feel and response for a vehicle with regenerative braking.


The steering is well-weighted and it's easy to maintain stability on the highway. But it communicates very little about what the wheels are doing when you're going around turns. In low road-grip situations, good steering feel can bolster driver confidence.


Considering the Pacifica Hybrid's substantial weight, handling is fine as long as you don't do your best Mario Andretti impression. Body roll is kept in check, and it makes it around corners well, even if the steering doesn't feel all that precise. Midcorner bumps are dispatched with few issues.


Shifting to L noticeably ramps up the regenerative braking force when lifting off the gas pedal. Staying in normal D mode makes for more natural braking feel. The handoff from regen to mechanical brakes is imperceptible.


There's a lot of room in the Pacifica, but the seating position in the second row can be a little tight. The overly firm seat cushions compromise comfort, too. But the ride quality is smooth and calm.

Seat comfort

All three rows have firm padding, so you may not find the seats to be quite as comfortable as those on other minivans. The second- and third-row seats recline but don't slide forward or back for comfort. The second-row seats are just large enough for adults; the third row is most suitable for kids.

Ride comfort

The Pacifica Hybrid goes down the road comfortably and with poise. It's seldom bothered by small or large road imperfections. Dipping a wheel into a pothole sends a shudder through the cabin, but there's little jostle when the wheel returns.

Noise & vibration

There is minimal road noise and only a small amount of wind noise created by the mirrors at highway speeds. You get the bonus of quiet all-electric operation at low speeds, though the Hybrid's V6 engine can be noisy when it's running.

Climate control

Climate can be controlled through knobs and buttons on the dash or through the touchscreen. Both ways are relatively easy to use. The air conditioning does a good job of keeping the entire cabin cool on hot days. Three-zone climate control is standard.


Whether you're making the daily commute or spending a long weekend on the highway, the Pacifica Hybrid's cabin is a pleasant place to be. Judged strictly by the numbers, the Pacifica Hybrid is marginally smaller than rivals, but it feels just as spacious as class leaders.

Ease of use

The controls inside the Pacifica Hybrid are intuitive and easy to use. The buttons are large and easy to locate within arm's reach of the driver. Touchscreen controls are laid out well with frequently used commands available from the main home screen.

Getting in/getting out

The front seats are mounted a bit high, but there's a low floor and high ceiling to help out. The sliding rear passenger doors provide a generous opening for entering and exiting or for loading child seats, and there's a large gap between the second-row seats to access the third row.

Driving position

The highly adjustable front seats and a tilt-and-telescoping wheel make it easy to find a comfortable driving position. The steering wheel feels large, solid and hefty in your hands.


From the front seats, the Pacifica Hybrid feels relatively large, with ample headroom and hiproom. Legroom in the second and third rows is just average by minivan standards. The third row is far more accommodating than a Highlander Hybrid's.


The massive windows, big mirrors and clear lines of sight make it very easy to see out of the Pacifica Hybrid. Blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors and a rearview camera come standard, and a 360-degree surround-view camera is optional.


At first glance, the Pacifica Hybrid presents an upscale vibe with nice soft-touch surfaces. But on closer inspection, things are less than perfect, with crooked stitching on the steering wheel and door panels, for example.


It isn't the largest in class but only falls behind leaders such as the Honda Odyssey by a few cubic feet. The Hybrid doesn't offer Stow 'n Go seating in the second row due to the battery pack. The seats can be removed as in other vans. The third-row seat still folds into the floor.

Small-item storage

The center console storage is large enough for big water bottles and a few snacks. There are small pockets everywhere in the cabin, including cupholders, cubbies and magazine slots. Got a million little things? They'll all fit here.

Cargo space

Though not as roomy as gas-only minivans, the Pacifica Hybrid offers more cargo space than competing hybrid or EV crossovers. You get a massive 32.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats, which fold flat at the touch of a button.

Child safety seat accommodation

The rear sliding doors provide great access for loading car seats. There are two sets of LATCH anchors in the second and third rows, but accessing them isn't the easiest.


It has enough cargo space to fit an 8-by-4 sheet of plywood, according to Chrysler. For repeated runs to the home improvement emporium or just helping a neighbor move house, this will do nicely.


Pacifica Hybrid's Uconnect is one of the easiest infotainment systems to use, thanks to a large 8.4-inch touchscreen display, clear graphics and controls.

Audio & navigation

Uconnect is one of the best systems in the class. The controls are easy to understand with a convenient menu on the lower portion of the screen for main commands. Navigation info can be displayed on the center screen or within the gauges for easy viewing.

Smartphone integration

It's easy to plug in, boot up and index music quickly via the USB ports. No problems connecting devices via Bluetooth either. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard for 2018. Rear USB ports not available on base trim.

Driver aids

A rearview camera, blind-spot monitor and rear parking sensors are standard. Adaptive cruise control (ACC), lane departure warning and intervention, and a 360-degree camera are optional. ACC is overly sensitive, often creates a large following distance, then brakes hard when there's a minor slowing.

Voice control

The Pacifica Hybrid comes standard with voice controls for audio, phone calls and voice text reply.

Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid vs. Honda Odyssey

Of all the available minivans, the Honda Odyssey probably makes the strongest case against the Pacifica Hybrid. The Odyssey is more comfortable; it has a more versatile seating setup, with available seating for eight passengers; and it's very well-equipped. The Pacifica Hybrid has the mpg edge with a combined EPA rating that's 10 mpg higher than the Honda's. Read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Honda Odyssey.

Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid vs. Toyota Highlander Hybrid

The Toyota Highlander Hybrid isn't a minivan, but it is one of the only other vehicles with three rows and a hybrid powertrain. Unlike the Pacifica Hybrid, the Highlander Hybrid is not a plug-in model, so you don't get the added benefit of a short EV range. The Highlander is also significantly smaller in the back. Only children will be comfortable in the third row. Another advantage of the Highlander Hybrid is standard all-wheel drive.

Compare Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid & Toyota Highlander Hybrid features

Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid vs. Toyota Sienna

If you're looking for a bargain in the minivan segment that's comfortable and adequately equipped, the Toyota Sienna is a good place to start. While the Sienna is nowhere near as fuel-efficient as the Pacifica Hybrid, it is on par with other minivans in fuel economy. The Sienna is also priced well, with base models costing nearly $10,000 less than a base Pacifica Hybrid. But creature comforts at the base Sienna trim levels will be comparatively sparse.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
