Is The Chrysler Pacifica The Best Family Vehicle?


The Chrysler Pacifica is a large minivan ideal for carrying the family to sports games and on road trips. This handsomely styled minivan has a long list of standard safety features, innovative technology, and a roomy interior so everyone can ride comfortably.

What Makes the Chrysler Pacifica Perfect for Your Family?

The Chrysler Pacifica is a three-row minivan with seating for up to seven and plenty of space for cargo, luggage, and the family dog. The upper trims of the Pacifica have luxurious features, such as leather upholstery and power-sliding doors. All-wheel drive is available with any trim to give you added traction when towing or driving on slippery or wet roads. Let’s explore some of the reasons why the Chrysler Pacifica is the perfect family vehicle.

Several Trims and Exciting Color Choices

Chrysler offers the Pacifica in four trims: Touring, Touring L, Limited, and the ultra-luxurious Pinnacle. You can also get the Pacifica as a plug-in hybrid in three trim levels: the Touring L, Limited, and Pinnacle.

The Pacifica van has striking exterior features that give it a contemporary and sleek appearance. Exciting color choices include Fathom Blue Pearl Coat, Velvet Red Pearl Coat, and Silver Mist Clear Coat. If you get the Road Tripper Package for the Touring L trim, you can get 18-inch wheels for the Pacifica Hybrid, 20-inch wheels for the gas-only Pacifica, and gray exterior trim with colorful orange accents.

Luxurious and Roomy Interior 

As soon as you step inside the cabin of the Chrysler Pacifica, you’ll notice the luxurious features and how roomy it is. Three rows of seats can accommodate up to seven people with an overall cargo volume of 165 cubic feet. The second-row Stow ‘N Go seating and storage system is one of the Pacifica’s greatest features. You’ll gain extra space by simply folding the seats into the floor.

With multiple seating configurations, you can carry the whole family or as many supplies as you want. You can get up to 140.5 cubic feet of storage space, depending on how you fold the seats. If you carry messy items, go on outdoor adventures with the kids, or bring sand or dirt inside the minivan, use the convenient available Stow ‘N Vac to suck up the debris.

Innovative Technology

Chrysler has loaded the Pacifica with various modern technologies that everyone in the family will appreciate. Enjoy the Uconnect 5 infotainment system with its 10.1-inch touch screen and wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa compatibility. Everyone can stay connected with the 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, checking emails, watching movies, and streaming music. The passengers in the back can stay engaged with the optional Uconnect Theatre rear-seat entertainment system, which features dual 10.1-inch touch screens. Choose the optional 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system for the ultimate listening experience.

Cool Accessories 

You can add accessories such as a cargo roof carrier, bike rack carrier, or front grille covers to enhance convenience and protect your Pacifica. Interior accessories include all-weather floor mats, cargo liners and dividers, specialized seat covers, and a cargo basket net to help keep your items organized.

A Vehicle for Road Trips

Road trips are a fabulous way to create lasting memories for the whole family. The Chrysler Pacifica is the ideal vehicle to take the family on these fun trips. There’s plenty of room for everyone and their gear and enough technology features to keep the family entertained. The Chrysler Pacifica makes the ideal vehicle for a road trip for these additional reasons:

Superb Power and Performance

Under the hood of all trims of the gas-only Pacifica, you’ll find a 3.6L V-6 engine with an output of 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission completes the drivetrain. If you have the hybrid Pacifica, you’ll get a hybrid V-6 engine paired with two electric motors and a 16 kWh lithium-ion battery that together create 260 horsepower. You can even get 32 miles of all-electric driving range when needed.

The Pacifica comes standard with front-wheel drive, or you can upgrade to the optional all-wheel drive for added traction. You’ll appreciate how the Pacifica handles with its front strut suspension system, trailing arm rear suspension, and electric power-assist rack-and-pinion steering system.

Great Towing Capacity

Sometimes, you need extra space on road trips to carry adventure gear or the kids’ sports equipment. Hauling a small trailer is the perfect solution when you need that extra space. When you add towing accessories to your Pacifica, such as a trailer hitch, wiring system, and trailer controller, you can tow up to 3,600 pounds.

Advanced Safety Features

Your family is precious cargo, and you’ll have peace of mind that your Chrysler Pacifica comes equipped with advanced safety and driver-assist features. Key features of the driver-assist bundle include:

  • Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go: This system helps set a safe distance between you and the car in front of you.
  • Rear parking sensors: When you’re trying to park your Pacifica, the rear parking sensors will alert you if you’re about to hit an object you can’t see. 
  • Full-speed forward collision warning with active braking: If you’re about to have a forward collision, your Pacifica will send a visual and audible warning to stop. In some cases, the minivan will apply automated emergency braking to bring the vehicle to a full stop. 
  • A lane mitigation system: This system consists of a lane departure warning with lane-keep assist to help you stay safely in your lane. 
  • Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert: When you’re about to change lanes and your Pacifica senses a car on your blind side, it alerts you on the corresponding exterior mirror.
