2022 Chrysler Pacifica Pinnacle red forest

This is a family icon – the Chrysler Pacifica. It comes from a lineage of family transporters dating back to 1984 and the original minivans. It is still the preferred family vehicle in Western Washington.

The Pacifica offers a lot more than you think. You have a choice of an all-wheel-drive system, a plug-in hybrid model, seating for seven, along with innovative Stow N’ Go seating, the updated Uconnect 5 infotainment system along with Uconnect theater, and many more great features!

How does the original minivan stack up to its competition? Let’s see how the Pacifica compares to the Honda Odyssey, Kia Carnival, and Toyota Sienna.

There are plenty of advantages the Chrysler Pacifica has over the Honda Odyssey.

  • Refinement and a higher level of quality across all trim levels – that is how you describe the Chrysler Pacifica inside and out
  • Chrysler offers all-wheel drive, as well as a plug-in hybrid version. Honda does not offer any other driveline choices.
  • Standard Stow N’ Go seating makes for a flat loading surface – fitting a full sheet of plywood.
  • Others have imitated and tried to copy the formula – Chrysler stands as the original minivan

There are plenty of advantages the Chrysler Pacifica has over the Kia Carnival.

  • More driver and passenger space overall, even with flexible seating. Second- and third-row passengers also get a better infotainment system with more games and playback options.
  • The space between the driver and passenger is free of a console – which means more stowage space for items of all sizes.
  • The Pacifica is offered in all-wheel drive for better year-round traction. Does the Carnival offer that?
  • The Chrysler Pacifica was designed as a minivan from the ground up – and we call it a “minivan” as we originated the segment in 1984.

 There are plenty of advantages the Chrysler Pacifica has over the Toyota Sienna.

  • Chrysler offers more performance choices than the Toyota – not just the plug-in hybrid, but a V6 and available all-wheel drive.
  • There is no console between the driver and front passenger, enabling more space for storage and other items.
  • The Pacifica offers rear passengers a dual screen infotainment system with a wider variety of content from games to movie playback.

When it comes to value, no one beats the Chrysler Pacifica – period!
