Chrysler remains the pioneer company when it comes to talking about minivans since it came out in the 80s debuting with Caravan, Voyager and mini Ram van. Over the years, engineers have adapted the daily needs of American families to their vehicles and with the new Pacifica is no exception.
How Does Chrysler Pacifica Drive?
When driving, this minivan is one of the easiest to use; for starters, it has a very refined, beautiful, and attractive exterior design. It comes with a huge front and rear windshield that help to have better visibility and avoid blind spots. The driving quality is very smooth and agile to be a vehicle that weighs 4,609 pounds (2,090 kg). The suspension does a good job when it comes to bumps that you find on your way.
Do you still believe that today’s minivans are slow and boring? Do not! That is already in the past, and the Pacifica comes with the 3.6-liter DOHC Pentastar V6 engine with 24 valves that generate about 287 HP and 262 lb-ft of torque. All this force is controlled by a 9-speed automatic gearbox which the Pacific is capable of starting from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 7.6 seconds and the quarter-mile in 15.9 seconds. The brakes are also excellent and powerful as it stops this vehicle from 62-0 mph (100-0 km/h) in just 124 feet (37.79 meters). It also has a towing capacity of up to 3,600 pounds (1,632 kg).
Inside The Chrysler Pacifica
For 2019 the interior of the Chrysler Pacifica comes with a lot of standard equipment and countless options in which we can highlight the Stow n’Go seats that although they are not new they have been greatly improved and are saved with just stepping on 1 button, the floor of the minivan opens when quickly pulled, and the seats fold with the pull of a strip and a slight push to keep, with the second-row seats saved, it is very easy to access the third row, and you get a lot of space. Also if you need to carry cargo, passengers or both at the same time, this minivan has up to 243 possible seating configurations.
If your family is big, then this is your ideal minivan since eight people can sit comfortably. Children won’t get bored during the trip because the second row of seats has an entertainment system that consists of 2 independent screens on the front headrests. It also has a vast panoramic roof to keep track of any landscape. The Pacifica has a very quiet cabin as it has standard active noise cancellation technology.
Did you spill food or dirt inside the cabin? No problem, the Pacifica comes with a vacuum cleaner integrated between the second and third-row called Stow’N Vac developed by the company Ridgid. On the dashboard are controls and buttons that are easy to identify plus within reach of the driver. The central touch screen is very intuitive and easy to read, so you don’t lose sight of the road. The Pacifica also has several cup holders, storage compartments, pockets for maps or papers and drawers for storing or placing phones, tablets or other electronic devices.
If you need a family vehicle and also need extra space, then I highly recommend the Chrysler Pacifica 2019. It is a minivan that has what it takes without sacrificing power, luxury, and comfort. It is perfect for the moms and dads today.
Prices start from $ 28,390 in its basic version to $ 45,690 of the Touring Plus version with all options available. Craig and Landreth Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram can help you get the car of your dreams for your family.
