2018 Chrysler Pacifica in Duluth

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica May Be the Ultimate Minivan

The Chrysler Pacifica is riding high on its recent success, offering ultra-premium comforts and surprising performance to a market that's otherwise been saturated with wallflower minivans that too many shoppers see as an unfair compromise. With a new, more affordable trim level for 2018--the Pacifica L--Chrysler's newest minivan compromises nothing, and delivers simple, safe, and efficient convenience.

A Family-Friendly Interior That You'll Love, Too

Chrysler is known for decking out its interiors with genuine materials, tons of features, and a huge amount of standard equipment for the price. The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica follows right along in this tradition, offering a rearview camera, dual-zone climate control, heated mirrors, and a lot more standard even on its base model. Stow 'n Go seats are available on nearly every new Pacifica, and upper-level trims offer heated front seats, leather upholstery, premium entertainment and audio systems, and even an in-car vacuum called the Stow-n-Vac.



The Minivan, Modernized

The minivan gets a pretty unfair reputation for being boring and behind on the times when it comes to styling. The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica, however, is breaking those trends. The new minivan is styled more aggressively than Chrysler's Town & Country, with a curvier front end, a sleek and simple winged grille with a larger, bolder lower air intake grille, and strategically-placed head- fog lights at the front to provide full-coverage visibility. It's been designed to optimize interior space without looking excessive or bulky, and it's a look that Chrysler pulls off well.

Practical Performance That's No Slouch

You might think of minivans as a "slow-and-steady" vehicle. And, some sure are. But, the 2018 Chrysler comes standard with an impressive 3.6-liter V6 that's good for 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, and pairs to a nine-speed automatic transmission to optimize for efficiency and driving comfort. The 2018 Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid comes standard with the same V6 engine, but with dual electric motors and a battery pack--it can drive for more than 30 miles on electric alone.

Loaded with Tech and Safety Features

It's a Chrysler--so of course you can expect a lot out of it. The new 2018 Pacifica L comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert. Upgrade through the trim line for advanced safety and tech features like front parking sensors, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and an automated parking system, remote engine start, and a 13-speaker audio system and an 8.4-inch touchscreen.
