Chrysler Pacifica - Consumer Reports

Current Model
The Pacifica is available with all-wheel drive on nonhybrid models. This minivan also uses the Uconnect infotainment system--one of the best available.
The Pacifica is offered in seven- and eight-passenger configurations, and it is distinguished by handy fold-into-the-floor second-row seats. The 3.6-liter V6 engine, paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, provides plenty of power and gets a decent 21 mpg overall. Handling is responsive, the ride is comfortable, and the cabin is quiet. A plug-in hybrid version is available and has an electric range of about 30 miles. It gets 27 mpg when operating as a hybrid. Standard safety equipment includes FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, BSW, and rear cross traffic warning.

2017-2021
2017 Redesign Year
The Pacifica is name chosen for the Town & Country minivan replacement. The new van is much better than the Town & Country and offered in seven- and eight-passenger configurations and retains the handy fold-into-the-floor second-row seats.
But these seats have limited thigh support. The 3.6-liter V6, paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, provides ample power and gets an impressive 21 mpg overall. Handling is responsive, the ride is comfortable, and the cabin is quiet. A plug-in hybrid version is available with a claimed electric range of 30 miles. The latest version of the UConnect touch-screen system is intuitive and easy to master. High-end versions of the Pacifica feature individual screens, with built-in games, for the rear passengers. Updates for 2021 include standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, next-generation Uconnect infotainment system, a higher-end Pinnacle trim level, and the availability of all-wheel drive.

2004-2008
2004 Redesign Year
The wagon-like Pacifica has a comfortable ride and fairly nimble handling. Power comes from a coarse-sounding and fuel-thirsty 3.5-liter V6 that provides only adequate acceleration.
The optional all-wheel-drive system works well for winter driving. The driving position is higher than in most sedans and lower than most SUVs', but a high beltline compromises the feeling of spaciousness and visibility. The interior seats six in three rows. The second row seats just two, so when the third row is folded, this is a four-seat vehicle. A five-passenger version arrived for 2005. The Pacifica received a 4.0-liter V6 for 2007. Chrysler discontinued the Pacifica SUV after the 2008 model.
