The minivan is an American cultural product – so this minivan we are talking about is definitely better than your average minivan. Be it cargo space, passenger capacity, fuel efficiency this minivan scores higher in every aspect compared to other crossovers.
The interior is suited for a quick change possibility. This car we are talking about today is the ultimate choice for daily use, to take you through thick and thin.
The second and third row disappearing seats allow you to create the space you want. There is also an optional plug-in hybrid powertrain. This also is powered with the latest infotainment system.
This might not make it to the list of the fastest minivans available but it still is fully loaded with the right kind of power and torque capabilities. It’s powered with a 3.6 litre V-6, 287 horsepower and has a nine-speed automatic transmission to go with. So it can go up to 60 mph in just 7.3 seconds. That’s a great number we are looking at when it comes to minivans and SUVs. It is fairly convenient for highway merging and back-road passing. The gear shifts happen very smoothly and there are no jerks that will be felt in between the shift. Easy to manoeuvre and navigate, it is great for a brisk and effortless ride.
This car is not only spacious but at the same time very fuel efficient. It actually tops the list in this case scoring 31 miles per gallon on a 200 mile highway.
Exterior and interior:
The car is equipped with Stow’n Go seats. It has reduced padding to allow the seats to be folded easily. There is extra cushion to go with in the hybrid models. It also has USB ports, power outlets in the second row seats. 10 inch touchscreens are mounted on the rear side of the front seats. There is an inbuilt Vacuum Cleaner but it consumes the space which could be otherwise used for fitting a spare-tire. In terms of insulation from sound, the cabins are top notch.
In cargo space, this minivan can offer you all the compartments you might require to carry as much luggage as you want. The second row Stow’n Go seats can be folded flat into the floor just like the third row seats.

In terms of safety, the 2018 model has a lot of added features. What Chrysler has done is it that it has made the optional features of safety like blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert and rear parking sensors mandatory equipment in this version. There are more optional features that can be availed like front automated emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.
You can go for the Chrysler Pacifica 2018 if you want a stable and durable choice that doesn’t disappoint you. The MPG may be a little low compared to other ones, so you can try to go for the front wheel drive variant with higher fuel efficiency. Overall, you get a big bang for your bucks with a good MSRP and with a big list of standard features like rear view camera, satellite radio, automatic climate control and others.
