Though not much has changed since its revamp in 2015, it's still going strong with the mantel of the most handsome minivan in town.

Starting from the base price of $26,995 the Pacifica comes in six trim levels harboring a similar 3.6L V6 engine paired to a 9-speed automatic transmission. The engine drills out 287 horsepower and 262 pound feet of torque. Despite being a minivan the Pacifica is pretty zippy to drive. With class leading mileage and all start safety rating the Pacifica is all set to change the minivan segment for good.

2019 Chrysler Pacifica Fuel Economy

4.0/10

If minivans were to trade utility for efficiency, this segment won’t have survived. Minivan efficiency is what brings soccer moms or any family guy to the Chrysler’s showroom. The V6 is extremely efficient and better than some of the prime players in the minivan segment. In city you can expect an efficiency of 18 mpg which stretches to 28 mph on the highway. Together you have the combined mileage of 22 mpg which is pretty average for a minivan.

Chrysler’s ergonomic numbers are average for the class. When you have vans like Dodge Caravan and Honda Odyssey then competition hits a dead end with no winner, as far as economy is concern. The Ford Flex is left dry with its 19 mpg mileage, making it the lager in the lot.

8.0/10

Chrysler’s Batman-like logo is displayed prominently on the sleek front end, ahead of a smoothly shaped body. The Pacifica has embraced a minivan shape but updated it with curvy sheet metal and lots of glass”- The Car Connection

Design and Styling

Although the majority of minivans look the same the all American Pacifica adds a little fair to the design. It’s the most curvaceous van modeled over the boxy body which is strong design statement. The Chrysler’s logo and grill looks better than ever and feels like it was built exclusive for this van. Despite of big dimensions the Pacifica mystic makes it look smaller, however, it’s a big van and its cabin say it all.

2019 Chrysler Pacifica Engine

7.7/10

By minivan standards, the Pacifica performs well. It handles better than average, with effective brakes and strong acceleration. It would get a better overall performance score if it weren't for the frustrating nine-speed transmission and vague steering”- Edmunds

Its been three years since there is no change in the design spectrum and so is its powertrain. In side the hood the Pacifica hides a 3.6 L V6 engine mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. The power station cranks out 287 horsepower and 262 pound feet of torque. Although there is no other engine option the Pacifica’s power is the best in the class. The power delivery is smooth and has plenty of punch for what needed.

Initial acceleration is smooth without any delays, the 9-speed automatic transmission is natural but can feel clumsy at times . There are no major disturbance in changing gears though. You can cruise through the freeway without any interruptions.

The minivan segment is the land of cut throat competition. Every brand offering is priced the same and deliver the same power and features. Just for the sake of comparison the Pacifica is the most powerful minivan in the segment along with Ford Flex.

Acceleration

The engine is punchy but you need to be a little heavy footed to drill out the acceleration. The initial acceleration feels sluggish but as you jab the pedal with all your might the Pacifica starts to shine. This boxy van takes 7.4 seconds to complete the 60 mph run, which is pretty fair for a minivan. For the quarter mile segment the Pacifica hits the mark in 15.6 seconds, pretty average to other vans in the segment.

Though the Pacifica’s performance is fair it’s not the best. The Honda Odyssey also known as the epitome of minivans is better at accelerating and its 6.6 second acceleration removes all doubts. Then comes the Ford Flex with its competitive 7 second acceleration. Kia Sedona is the potential lager in the lot if you talk about acceleration.

Ride and Handling

The Pacifica is pretty decent and quite maneuverable. The steering is light and has a central feel to it, road communication might be less but the shape steering instincts convey confidence on tricky roads. Then if we jump to body roll, yes there is some. Pacifica’s boxy shape sparks body roll on high speeds but its controllable. The transmission is where you need to improvise, downshifts are long and constantly looks for the right gear in traffic.

Braking

Minivans are known for their utilitarian nature and better reliability and one important factor which contributes to Pacifica’s reliability is its braking. The pedal is easy to modulate and relatively has a short travel distance and the response is immediate too. The Front brakes rated at 13 inches and so is the rear. From the speed of 60 mpg the Pacifica took 119 feet to come to a stop.

Comparing with other vans the Pacifica is a light van, hence the reason of its performance in the panic brake test. Vans like Kia Sedona boast their competitive braking while still having the bulky weight, others like the Ford Flex don’t share a similar competitive vibe.

2019 Chrysler Pacifica Interior

8.6/10

Whether you're making the daily commute or spending a long weekend on the highway, the inside of the Pacifica is a pleasant place to be. If you're judging it strictly by the numbers, the Pacifica is marginally smaller than rivals, but it feels just as spacious as class leaders”- Edmunds

Seating and Comfort

You can use the Pacifica for daily commuting or for going camping on the weekend, the limit to its interiors versatility. Pacifica can home seven to eight people at one a time depending on which second row seating option you pick. You can either go for the bench or the captain’s chair.. The seats sit high above the ground but the low ground clearance compensates for the same. Access to the second row is though a sliding door which has a decent opening. The third row access is easy too and can comfortably accommodate three adults.

With large windows and thin pillars visibility is a strong point on the Pacifica. The quality of the interior is nice with a lot of soft touches but the same cannot be said for the poor material used on the steering. The seats feature a stow-n-Go system when the seats could be folded into the floor. Other features like Conversation mirror gives parents full access to what their children are doing at the back. If you talk about the interior design its one hell of a minivan and indicates how much minivans have changed in all these years.

Interior Features-

  • 8 Passenger Seating
  • 2 Additional Key Fobs (Fleet)
  • Alloy Seats
  • Uconnect 4C Navigation With 8.4" Display
  • Single Rear Overhead DVD System

Cargo volume

The Pacifica is a big utilitarian when it comes to cargo space. With all seats up the Chrysler delivers a 32 cubic feet of cargo volume. A great feature about the Pacifica is the Stow-n-go feature which allows you to fold the second and third row seats into the floor to open the full cargo bay. The full Pacifica cargo bay is rated at 140. 5 cubic feet which is nice but not the best in the lot.

2019 Chrysler Pacifica Competition

Dodge Grand Caravan vs Chrysler Pacifica

Dodge Caravan is exactly what the idea of an ideal van looks like. It has space for seven and it’s a spacious van. Similar to the Pacifica there is enough power to counter the city’s traffic and hit the country road on the weekend. Though it’s a decent van and match everything the Pacifica does, but as a buyer you cannot resist the Pacifica’s futuristic look. Also, in terms of economy Chrysler is a little more efficient too. Considering there is not much different in the price, the Pacifica is a clearly better choice.

Honda Odyssey vs Chrysler Pacifica

The Honda Odyssey is the Chuck Norris of the minivan segment. It’s the segment leader and boast a higher price and power. In terms of dimensions and utility the Odyssey delivers more than the Pacifica. The fact that this version of the Odyssey was launched last year and its more practical. In comparison to the Pacifica the Odyssey is more nimble and child friendly. However, one thing which is absent in Honda is the Stow ‘n Go seats. It’s a tuff choice, however, the Pacifica brings something with its design.

2019 Chrysler Pacifica Final Verdict

Minivans used to be boxy, ugly, and practical, the type of car you would only buy when you have to, however, the Pacifica has surpassed the traditional minivan image. It’s futuristic body and interior makes it the most handsome minivan in the segment. The Chrysler ‘s V6 engine cranks out enough power to do your family’s chores in the city and cruise on the highway. The handling is good but not that great, you will find vans with better driving dynamics. Economy and practicality remains unrivaled and average to what other vans deliver.

Overall the price is synonymous to what other brands charge and with the innovative design its brings out something fresh to the segment.
