Chrysler Pacifica years


Which Pacifica does Edmunds recommend?

While there are less expensive trims available, it's not until you get to the Touring Plus that you'll find features truly helpful to the prospective minivan buyer. These include full keyless entry, power-sliding rear doors, a power liftgate and three-zone automatic climate control. If we were at the dealership lot, though, we'd plunk down a little extra for the Touring L. This is where the Pacifica's appeal really comes into play, with a power-adjustable passenger seat, heated front seats, leather upholstery and a USB port in the second row, perfect for recharging phones and tablets.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

7.6 / 10

No other vehicle can match a minivan's ability to comfortably ferry passengers and cargo. But the minivan's utilitarian design and somewhat dorky public image are equally able to put off all sorts of shoppers. For those people, we recommend taking a look at the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica.

Sure, it's still a minivan, but with a curvaceous front end and luxurious cabin, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is different from the others, and quite a departure from the capable yet long-in-the-tooth Town & Country it replaced last year. This is the minivan for those who crave more than just function.

Not that the Pacifica lacks the tenets that make minivans unique; after all, it's made by the company that created the modern minivan in the 1980s. In addition to a spacious cabin, roomy third row and ample cargo area, the Pacifica retains one of the Town & Country's best features: Stow 'n Go seats. Most minivans have a third row that neatly folds into the cargo pit to create a flat load floor behind the second row. The Pacifica is the only one with second-row seats that also fold into the floor. In just a few minutes, the Pacifica transforms from an eight-passenger people mover into a two-seater that easily fits 4-by-8 sheets of drywall.

We're equally impressed by the Pacifica's quality cabin appointments, especially in the top-trim Limited model. Soft-touch plastics, stitched trim and supple leather fill the interior, accenting other highlights such as an intuitive touchscreen interface and widely available rear-seat entertainment system. Light pours in through the massive dual-panel sunroof to illuminate the bright two-tone interior. And all the latest advanced driver aids are here, from blind-spot monitoring to an automated parking feature and adaptive cruise control.

There are drawbacks, of course. The nine-speed automatic is a little clunky, and many desirable features are tied to the high-end Limited model. But by and large, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is worth your consideration for its enviable interior design, thoughtful cargo solutions, and numerous luxury and safety features.

2018 Chrysler Pacifica configurations

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica comes in six main trim levels: L, LX, Touring Plus, Touring L, Touring L Plus and Limited. The naming can be a little confusing but, as expected, the more expensive the trim level, the more standard features you get. There's also a Pacific Hybrid, which is reviewed separately.

Every Pacifica is motivated by a 3.6-liter V6 (287 horsepower, 262 pound-feet of torque) that sends power to the front wheels via a nine-speed automatic transmission. Seven-passenger seating is standard across the board, and eight-passenger seating is optional on all but the L model.

The base L trim level comes standard with 17-inch steel wheels, heated mirrors, keyless entry (for the driver door only) and ignition, a rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert, dual-zone climate control, a height-adjustable driver seat, a 60/40-split folding third-row seat, a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, and a six-speaker audio system with a USB port and an auxiliary jack. Tri-zone climate control is available at an additional cost.

The Pacifica LX is equipped with alloy wheels, body-colored exterior trim, a driver information display, an automatic engine stop-start system, an eight-way power driver seat (with four-way lumbar), tri-zone climate control and folding/collapsible second-row Stow 'n Go seats.

Stepping up to the Touring Plus adds automatic headlights, foglights, LED taillights, chrome exterior trim, full keyless entry, remote engine start, power-sliding rear doors, a power liftgate, automatic climate control, satellite radio and a charge-only USB port located in the front row. The 18-inch wheels can be ordered separately.

The next level up is the Touring L. Its standard features include an eight-way power passenger seat (with power lumbar), heated front seats, leather upholstery, a second-row USB port and second- and third-row retractable sunshades.

There are several packages available for the Touring L. The Alpine Sound package adds a 13-speaker audio system and an 8.4-inch touchscreen with HD radio and a third-row USB port. The Advanced SafetyTec package bundles automatic high beam control, front parking sensors, a sound-reducing windshield, automatic wipers, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, an automated parking system, a top-down parking camera and a larger driver information display.

Later in the model year, a navigation system will be available for the Touring Plus and Touring L. For the Touring Plus, it also adds the 8.4-inch touchscreen and its upgrades. Also available for the LX, Touring Plus and Touring L is a rear-seat entertainment system with a DVD player.

The upgraded driver info display and sound-reducing windshield are included with the Touring L Plus, along with two sunroofs (panoramic for the first two rows and an additional fixed sunroof above the third row), a heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, ambient lighting, the 8.4-inch touchscreen, navigation and the Alpine audio system.

The Touring Plus can be equipped with the Advanced SafetyTec pack, a 20-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, and hands-free operation for the sliding rear doors and liftgate.

All Touring models can be further equipped with 18-inch wheels.

The top-dog Limited comes with 18-inch wheels, xenon headlamps, LED foglights, auto-dimming exterior and rearview mirrors, power-folding mirrors, driver memory settings, ventilated front seats, premium leather upholstery, the hands-free liftgate and sliding doors, an in-vehicle vacuum cleaner and a power-folding third-row seat.

As loaded as it is, even the Limited can be bolstered with additional features. The Advanced SafetyTec package is available here, as is an upgraded rear entertainment system. It combines the 20-speaker audio system with a Blu-ray player, dual 10-inch seatback touchscreens, an HDMI input and a household-style power outlet. Twenty-inch wheels are sold as a stand-alone option.

Available on all models is a secondary driver key that Chrysler calls KeySense. Intended for younger drivers and valets, this key starts the car is a mode that limits top speed and volume, keeps all driver aids activated and restricts user-defined satellite radio channels. The Trailer Tow Group is available on Touring Plus models and above, and it adds a four- and seven-pin wiring harness and a 2-inch hitch receiver.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica (3.6L V6 | 9-speed automatic | FWD).

NOTE: Since this test was conducted, the current Pacifica has received some revisions, including standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Pacifica.

Driving

7.5
By minivan standards, the Pacifica performs well. It handles better than average, with good brakes and strong acceleration. It would get a better overall performance score if it weren't for the frustrating nine-speed transmission and vague steering.

Acceleration

7.5
Off the line, the Pacifica feels a little sluggish and unresponsive, but with a heavy foot, it accelerates well. The 3.6-liter V6 is rated at 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Zero to 60 mph takes 7.7 seconds, which is pretty quick for the segment.

Braking

8.5
In regular driving, the brakes are easy to modulate with a short pedal travel and good feel and response, without being overly sensitive. In a simulated-panic stop from 60 mph, the Pacifica took just 119 feet, a short distance for a minivan.

Steering

7.0
Steering is well weighted and easy to control with a good on-center feel, but it communicates very little about what the wheels are doing. In low road-grip situations, good steering feel can help bolster driver confidence.

Handling

8.0
Considering the Pacifica's size (around 4,600 pounds), handling is good. Body roll is limited, and it makes it around corners well, even if the steering doesn't feel all that precise. Midcorner bumps are dispatched with few issues.

Drivability

6.0
The ZF nine-speed transmission is tough to live with. It hunts for the right gear on uphill grades and in traffic. Downshifts take a noticeably long time, too. Cruise control sticks to a set speed and uses the brakes to regulate speed.

Comfort

7.5
There's a lot of comfort to be had in the Pacifica, but the seating position in the second and the third row can be a bit tight. The overly firm seat bolsters hurt the comfort score a bit, too. The ride, however, is smooth and calm.

Seat comfort

7.0
All three rows have firm padding, so you might 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, while the third row is most suitable for kids.

Ride comfort

8.0
Ride is comfortable, settled and seldom interrupted by small or large road imperfections. Optional 20-inch wheels make the ride a bit more sensitive to potholes and cracks in the road but it's not unbearable.

Noise & vibration

8.0
The V6 engine is relatively quiet, with a low-pitch rumble under full throttle that isn't unpleasant. There is minimal road noise and a small amount of wind noise created by the sideview mirrors at highway speeds, though we detected some rattles on occasion.

Climate control

8.5
Climate can be controlled through knobs and buttons on the dash or through the touchscreen. Both ways are relatively easy to use. The A/C does a good job of keeping the entire cabin cool on hot days, and three-zone climate control is standard on all but the base L.

Interior

8.5
Whether you're making the daily commute or spending a long weekend on the highway, the inside of the Pacifica is a pleasant place to be. If you're judging it strictly by the numbers, the Pacifica is marginally smaller than rivals, but it feels just as spacious as class leaders.

Ease of use

8.5
The controls inside the Pacifica are very intuitive and easy to use. The buttons are large, easy to locate within arm's reach of the driver. The touchscreen controls are laid out well with frequently used commands available from the main home screen.

Getting in/getting out

8.5
The front-row seats are a bit high, but there's a low floor and high ceiling to help out. The sliding rear passenger doors provide a generous opening to get in and out or load child seats, and there's a large gap between the second-row seats to access the third row.

Driving position

8.5
The highly adjustable front seats and a tilt-and-telescoping wheel make it easy to find a comfortable driving position. The steering wheel is on the large side and feels solid and hefty.

Roominess

7.0
From the front seats, the Pacifica feels relatively large, with ample headroom and hiproom available. Legroom in the second and third rows, however, is just average. Competitors, including the Honda Odyssey and Kia Sedona, beat it by a few inches.

Visibility

9.0
Massive windows, big mirrors and clear lines of sight mean virtually zero blind spots. Blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors and a rearview camera come standard, and a 360-degree surround-view camera is optional.

Quality

7.0
At first glance, the Pacifica presents an upscale vibe with nice soft-touch surfaces for your elbows. Upon closer inspection, though, things are less than perfect with crooked stitching on the steering wheel and door panels.

Utility

8.0
The Pacifica might not be the biggest vehicle in the class, but it only falls behind the leaders such as the Honda Odyssey by a few cubic feet. Stow 'n Go seating is an excellent feature, and when the seats aren't stowed, there's good storage underneath the floor.

Small-item storage

9.0
The center console storage is adequate enough for large water bottles and a few snacks. There are a lot of small pockets everywhere in the cabin. Cupholders, cubbies and magazine slots are all present. Got a million little things? They'll all fit here.

Cargo space

7.5
The Pacifica is near the bottom of the class for cargo capacity with 32.3 cubic feet behind the third row and 140 cubic feet with the rear rows folded. However, the Stow 'n Go seats provide serious versatility that make up for the smaller overall volume.

Child safety seat accommodation

7.5
The rear sliding doors provide great access for loading car seats. There are two sets of LATCH anchors in both the second and third rows, and with the optional eight-passenger configuration, the second row has a top tether anchor in the center seat.

Towing

8.5
The maximum towing capacity for the Pacifica is 3,600 pounds, which is a marginal 100-pound advantage over the Honda Odyssey, Kia Sedona and Toyota Sienna minivans.

Technology

8.0
The Chrysler Uconnect system is one of the easiest systems to use, with simple controls and an intuitive device interface. The 2018 Pacifica is preferable to the 2017 model due to the upgraded hardware, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, and addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Audio & navigation

8.5
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 gauge cluster for easy viewing.

Smartphone integration

8.0
Easy to plug in, boot up and index music quickly via multiple USB ports (depending on trim). No problems connecting our devices via Bluetooth either. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, and you can stream video from an Android device to the rear screens with the Uconnect Theater system.

Driver aids

7.5
Multiple driver aids are standard, while adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and intervention, and a 360-degree camera are optional. The adaptive cruise control is overly sensitive at times, leaving a large following distance and braking hard when minor slowdowns occur in front of you.

Voice control

8.0
The Pacifica comes standard with voice controls for audio, phone calls and voice text reply. The available 8.4-inch system adds Siri Eyes Free, which takes commands to play music, set reminders and access navigation.

Horrible Car! Electronics Failed, Safety Hazard
Rose Marie C,03/12/2018
I have had this car since late August and have had electrical problems with it from the first week. The electronics system went dead twice while I drove the car on a long distance trip. A few days later, the side door failed to open and close electronically AND the car issued an engine malfunction message on the radio screen. The Adapitve Cruise Control/Forward Cruise Control has also failed several times. Brought the car back to the dealer over 20 times to repair these problems. These are safety problems and should have been repaired immediately. In addition, Chrysler has falsely advertised that this car has wifi capability. It doesn't. I was able to connect a hotspot in the car for a month and then without notifying me, the hotspot was cancelled BUT I was still charged by AT&T. I've contacted Chrysler about all of these problems and was transferred to 3 different case managers who simply tried to get me to sign a release in exchange for one month's payment of my lease. I asked to return this car so many times and each time was stonewalled. I have wasted so much time driving back and forth to the dealership to get this car repaired and the problems continue. Buyers BEWARE!!!
Very well thought out and designed minivan
vivek,10/26/2017
Was never in the market for a minivan. Looked at many SUVs including the VW Atlas. I like the Atlas among all the SUVs I tested and sat in. I also looked at Odyssey and Pacifica. I like the stow & go arrangement. The interior is a shade better than the odyssey. the screen on the new 2018 model is much more responsive. The 360 camera sold me big time as I find that an extremely valuable feature. This is not available in the Honda, not sure why for such a large vehicle. It is a huge safety feature. The stop and go ACC is better than it functioned in the Odyssey (Which stops at 20 mph, unlike the CRV version). The 9 speed transmission also shifted much better on the Pacifica. The park assist function is so so. Hit or miss but helpful nevertheless. Between backup camera and 360 deg camera, you have more than enough assistance needed to park this big minivan. It is very big but does not drive big. Overall, I am not sure of the reliability unlike the great Honda. I have decided to give the Pacifica engineers my money. Hope it all works out. This is my first Chrysler product.
Has been in for repair more than I've driven it
je regrete,05/29/2018
Love the comfort, convenience, hate the fact that I'm driving a rental car because I have a list of about 10 things that have gone wrong within the first 1000 miles and it's spent more than 2 weeks in the repair shop so far.
Sienna / Odyssey recent converts
Ron,03/27/2018
Having come from an 03 Odyssey and a 12 Sienna, my wife and I were all set to purchase another Sienna when our 12 LE was totalled. But when we took a detailed look and test drive of the Pacifica -- we did not look back. The Pacifica is a distinct step up in luxury and technology. The ride is superb for a minivan -- the tight firmness of the Odyssey with the comfort and strong engine of the Sienna. However, the Pacifica is better -- quiet ride, solid body, excellent technology. We targeted our features: Advanced Safety Tech pkg (for her) and Alpine / 8.4 in UConnect upgrade (for me) and Leather (both of us). With the strong incentives, buying a new Pacifica vs a used XLE Sienna was $5K difference -- and fully worth it. Both of us absolutely love our vehicle. I have rented many cars/SUVs in my time (work) and really enjoyed the luxury of the Toyota Avalon/Buick Enclave-- the best of all the rentals. This new Pacifica Touring L feels just like that -- in a minivan form! Be sure to look at the 2018 version -- Apple Carplay/Android Auto is now standard and opt for the AST package if possible.

More about the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica

Not to be confused with and totally unrelated to a large crossover that Chrysler produced in the mid-2000s, the Chrysler Pacifica replaced the storied Town & Country minivan just last year. Though Japanese and Korean competitors bested Chrysler's previous minivan in terms of interior materials and build quality, the latest Pacifica fights back with a luxurious cabin and overall refinement. Like all minivans, the Pacifica is space-efficient and great at carrying people and their things. But it's the little details, from the tasteful chrome accents to the hidden sliding door tracks, that give the Pacifica the edge in many ways.

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica comes in six trim levels: L, LX, Touring Plus, Touring L, Touring L Plus and Limited. The base L trim is new this year, with standard features that include a blind-spot monitor, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, a 7-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. To get one of the Pacifica's killer features, second-row Stow 'n Go seats that fold neatly into the floor, you'll have to upgrade to the LX.

The trio of Touring variants starts with the Touring Plus, which equips the Pacifica with keyless entry, automatic headlights, satellite radio, a power liftgate and power-sliding doors. The Touring L ups the ante with a power passenger seat, heated front seats and leather upholstery. The Touring L Plus further adds two sunroofs, a larger touchscreen, navigation and a premium audio system. The Limited lords over lesser trims with premium leather, an in-vehicle vacuum and hands-free operation for the doors and liftgate. Options include automatic emergency braking, an automatic parking system (for both parallel and perpendicular parking) and a dual-touchscreen rear video entertainment system.

Add it up and the Pacifica stands as one of the top picks for a minivan while also presenting a good value proposition as it often prices out a few grand less than some similarly equipped rivals. Use Edmunds' shopping tools to find your ideal 2018 Chrysler Pacifica.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica?

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.
