2023 Chrysler Pacifica: One of The Handiest Minivan Ever

2023 Chrysler Pacifica is feasible, comfortable, graceful, and handsome. The Pacifica has family transportation in its hands. The car is offered with either a V6 or a plug-in hybrid powertrain. This can be mated with optional all-wheel drive. Its road manners are refined making it a pleasure to drive. No matter where you are driving to, whether you’re going interstate road-trip miles or simply rushing kids to the high school football game. The useful cargo’s capacity is huge, and especially with the second and third rows folded into their built-in alcoves on Pacifica’s floor. The base price is more imposing than other rivals such as the Kia Carnival and Honda Odyssey. But wait, that’s because Pacifica’s entry-level trims are under the Chrysler Voyager name. While plenty of Americans continue to crave SUVs and crossovers, let’s check out the more practical minivan—the Pacifica.

What’s New?

The American car maker added a new element inside, a new in-cabin air-filtration system. The minivan also gains an optional Amazon Fire TV allowing passengers to enjoy to streaming services to watch movies and TV shows. Also, through optional rear-seat entertainment systems. Pacificas equipped with this will also display content on the front infotainment screen, but only while the transmission is in park. The hybrid model gains a Max Regeneration indicator in the gauge cluster and Silver Mist is added color palette.

Engine & Performance

It’s not the quickest minivan, but the front-wheel-drive Pacifica is not sluggish. Feeling plenty peppy around town. The non-hybrid variant houses a 287-hp 3.6L V6 paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The hybrid makes less total horsepower from its 3.6-liter V6 with two electric motors backed up by a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery. The zero-to-60-mph time for the gas-powered model differed by 0.5 seconds. To compensate for the relinquishing Stow ‘n Go the second row in hybrid models, engineers at Chrysler added extra cushioning to standard captain’s chairs. For hauling cargo, the Pacifica doesn’t disappoint. One can easily manage to fit 53 carry-on suitcases inside with all the seats stowed. A built-in vacuum cleaner is available as an option occupying the space of an optional mini-spare tire. The Pacifica offers longer use of the roadside-assistance plan. The Pacifica hybrid model has a 10-year/100,000-mile warranty on hybrid components.

2023 Chrysler Pacifica Price

The mid-standing Touring L variant offers the best mix of features and value as it adds a host of additional features over the base model. These features include a heated steering wheel, perforated leather upholstery, heated front seats, and 18-inch wheels all as standard. We’d suggest sticking with the standard 3.5-liter V6, as there are a few reliability hiccups in the Pacifica hybrid for the long term.
