The six-passenger Pacifica is very carlike for an SUV. Essentially a tall wagon, it provides a comfortable ride and nimble handling. We generally liked its interior versatility, but with only two seats in the second row, passenger capacity is reduced to four if you fold the third-row seat to carry cargo. We also found the powertrain to be rather noisy and fuel-thirsty.
