Get over the post-modern image of a minivan, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is here to make a statement, and also to throw the concept of soccer-moms right out. The Pacifica is a minivan that rivals SUVs in terms of styling and challenges all the cars in the segment with features that are tasteful as well as useful.

Chrysler Pacifica is equipped with a 3.6 L V-6 powerhouse that pumps out 287 horses and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. The minivan is pretty zippy around the corners and offers best-in-class mpg figures. There are no engine or transmission options, all the trims come equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission and are only available with a Front-Wheel-Drive (FWD) powertrain as standard.

Overall Rating


The Pacifica is Chrysler’s replacement for their iconic Town and Country minivans. It’s an appealing minivan thanks, to its sleek profile, tidy overhangs, and nicely-contoured body panels. That van-y appeal extends inward where a beautifully-arranged cabin adorned with high-quality materials makes the embodiment of responsibilities downright pleasant to drive. Those seated up front are treated to an appealing concave treatment that affords generous leg space. 

A hybrid version is also available, which offers excellent mileage (~84 MPGe) but is a little pricey. Both the versions are well built from the ground up. The gas variant starts at $28,995, while the hybrid is available for $41,995. This new vehicle will go against settled rivals like Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, and Dodge Grand Caravan.

Buying Advice

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is well implemented with some good features and provides all an enthusiast needs with an impressive and powerful engine. The engine on this car is sufficient and is always ready to provide all the power you need. You can also add most of the advanced features as add-on options to your van. We recommend that you go for the Touring L trim along with the premium audio package, which adds a 13-speaker, 506-watt Alpine stereo system, and a third-row USB charge port and upgrades the standard 5.0-inch infotainment touchscreen to a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen.

2018 Chrysler Pacifica Engine and Performance

7.9/10

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is powered by a 3.6L V-6 engine mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. All the models are driven with the power to the front wheels (FWD). The V-6 generates 287 horsepower while delivering a torque of 262 pound-feet. The car comes with no other engine options.

This is not the best and most powerful engine available in the segment but it offers optimum performance to fit as a perfect daily driver with enough room for a fast-paced run on the freeway. All the cars in the category come equipped with pretty much the same engine, however, the Pacifica maintains a good lead with the engine performance with the smooth transmission and a better fuel economy.

The 2018 Toyota Sienna leads the table with impressive power outputs, but the base model of the minivan is a bit overpriced, while the Chrysler Pacifica grabs the second spot on the table with a reasonable price tag. Its cousin, the Dodge Grand Caravan is just a few numbers behind the Pacifica, but the Honda Odyssey sits last due to its low power outputs and high price. 

How quick is the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica from 0-60 MPH?

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica can get you to paces with no problems, however, a little bit of heavy footedness is required to get the engine running. Owing to a slow and somewhat laggy 9-speed auto transmission, the car manages a 0-60 mph timing of 7.3 secs, which is not terrible considering you are driving a minivan.

2018 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan accelerate in 7.3 sec

Not the fastest minivan you can drive around, but the utilitarian aspect of it is enough to get you in the grooves of highway speeds in under 16 secs. However, there are cars like the Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey that can do it faster, but faster cannot be the sole factor in checking the brilliance of any vehicle.

The Honda Odyssey is the quickest of all with 6.6 seconds on the clock for the 0-60 mph test. The Toyota Sienna is just 0.2 seconds away from the Odyssey but matches its pace with the Odyssey in the drag test. On the third spot, the Chrysler Pacifica lies peacefully, while its cousin is lousy to achieve the milestone and stands on the last spot. 

How does the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica handle?

Driving a Pacifica almost makes you forget that you are handling a family-sized minivan. The car feels in supreme control at all times. Making smooth turns and maneuvers is not a task at hand that might make anyone thoughtful while driving.

An independent MacPherson strut in the front and rear independent twist-blade with coil springs combine to make sure that you stay relaxed even on the roughest of roads. The car weighs almost half a ton ( about 4,600 lbs.), but still, the body roll is limited, and acing the trickiest of corners won't feel like a task either.

How are the brakes on the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica?

A good car is one that stops when required, and yes, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is a good one. With ABS and Brake Assist as standard features, the Pacifica comes to a complete halt within 177 ft of braking from the more desirable highway speed of 70 mph. Fitted with 13 inch vented and solid rotors in the front and the rear respectively, braking in case of emergencies might not be very difficult, keeping in mind that the car already has some passive safety features as standard.

Taking advantageof its heavy curb weight, the Chrysler Pacifica achieves the shortest braking distance in this system. With just one foot ahead, the Dodge Grand Caravan rushes to the second spot leaving behind the Toyota Sienna. With no choice, the Honda Odyssey rests on the last spot of the table. 

2018 Chrysler Pacifica Fuel Economy

8.5/10

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica can be revered as the class leader when it comes to real-world gas mileage figures. However, cars like Odyssey and Sienna travel similar miles for each gallon. According to the EPA, the Pacifica returns 18 mpg in the city, 22 mpg on the highway, and 28 mpg combined. A combined range of 437 miles is deliverable thanks to its 19-gallon fuel tank. If fuel economy is the deal-breaker for you, It's better that you go for the Hybrid or even the gas-fueled Pacifica, which delivers a combined gas mileage of 28.

The fuel estimates of the Chrysler Pacifica stand out on the table, and what's pleasing is that it houses the smallest fuel tank in this segment. Both the Japanese minivans share a similar fuel economy, but the Sienna is on the upper hand with a smaller fuel tank capacity, while the Dodge Grand Caravan proves itself to be the most fuel sipper.

2018 Chrysler Pacifica Interior

8.4/10

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is not just designed keeping families in mind but is directed towards all kinds of customers. The car offers a plush and spacious seating experience. The car offers comfort for people of all heights and sizes, except some of the taller NBA’s center forwards. Compared to the competition, the Pacifica offers more comfort with bucket seats and more space, even if only by a few centimeters. 

2018 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan front seats

Chrysler has also made sure that no compromises are made with the seating, even after the tri-pane panoramic sunroof is fitted. You get clothed bucket seats on the lower trims, however, when you move up with the trims, the seats transform into perforated leather and then to Nappa leather seats in the top trim i.e. Limited. As you move from the front to the back, space constantly drops, with an exception of the second-row seats in the 7-Passenger seat being some of the most comfortable seats in the car with reclining function.

The 2018 Toyota Sienna and the Dodge Grand Caravan offer less legroom in the second and third rows as compared to the other competitors. The only advantage that the Sienna holds is that it is offering passengers capacity up to 8 in the base model itself. 

The seats in the second row have multiple functions, you can bend the seat over for easy access to the third row or you can fold the seats and stow them on the floor. The Stow-n-Go is one unique feature that is exclusive only to the gas-fueled Pacifica. While some of these features are dealmakers for some, it wouldn't be wrong to say that Chrysler has totally changed the game with Pacifica being a front-runner in the minivan segment. Some of the most interesting features are also unique to Pacifica, while there's no other car that offers similar features on the same budget. Some of the standout features include:

  • A 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power recline
  • Manual Tilt/Telescoping Steering Column
  • Power Rear Windows
  • Height Adjustment
  • Fore/Aft Movement
  • Cushion Tilt and Power 4-Way Lumbar Support

How’s the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica’s infotainment system?

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is a complete car, which becomes more evident when you look at the infotainment system of the car. The Pacifica comes packed with technology that is bound to make all your drives interesting. A Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system with a 5-inch touchscreen, six-speaker stereo are among the standard features. While Bluetooth, USB port (Front and Rear Seats), Uconnect Access, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto are also a part of the standard package.

2018 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan infotainment screen

However, you get the option to upgrade to different optional infotainment systems on the Pacifica. We recommend you to choose the 8.4-inch screen with capacitive touch, the screen changes the whole experience in the car. The trims upwards of Touring L also get two 10 inch touch screens for the second-row passengers, which can also be controlled from the entertainment console in the front seat. Some of the infotainment features include:

  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • AM/FM stereo
  • Voice command 
  • 13-speaker Alpine premium audio system
  • 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen

How’s the cargo capacity on the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica?

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica falls short when you talk about cargo capacity. The cars seem to be slacker in the segment with just 32.3 cubic feetof space with all the seats up. However, Chrysler has cleverly taken care of the issue with a stow-n-go feature that is only exclusive to the gas-fueled Pacifica. 

The stow-n-go features let fold all the seats in the second and third-row and fit them into the car's running board under the mats. The setting makes space for almost 140.5 cubic feetof luggage. Chrysler has also taken care of the family’s needs. There are enough cubby holes and storage spaces in the car so that you never run short on keeping space. More than being cubby holes, these can also be called smart storage options.

Clearly, the Honda Odyssey is the winner in this segment by offering an incredible maximum cargo capacity of 144.9 cubic feet, followed by the Chrysler Pacifica with just a few inches away. With all the seats upright, the Toyota Sienna offers a great space in the cargo area, but ultimately it goes behind the Dodge Grand Caravan in terms of overall cargo capacity.

7.9/10

Every minivan in the US market feels almost identical, which makes the task of choosing one out of the lot, all the more difficult. However, a longer, wider, and taller Pacifica makes sure that you make the most out of the interior space with the best exterior shape and dimension.

2018 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan 

Where the Pacifica falls is the ground clearance of 5.1 inches, but this isn't a vehicle that you'd want to take off-road unless you have a cabin in the woods. The premium looking curvaceous character and flared front fascia makes sure that you are spotted with a statement even while driving amongst the more contemporary and cognate minivans in the segment.

On paper, the Dodge Grand Caravan is the longest minivan, but those few tiny inches won't create much difference in the real world. Its cousin, the Pacifica has the largest wheelbase, which means it has the best interior room in contrast with its rivals, but the Toyota Sienna has the ground clearance of an SUV. Some of the most important exterior highlights of the minivan include-

  • Auto-Off Projector Beam Halogen Daytime Running Headlamps w/Delay-Off
  • Perimeter/Approach Lights
  • Fixed Rear Window w/Fixed Interval Wiper, Heated Wiper Park, and Defroster
  • Body-Colored Front Bumper w/Black Bumper Insert
  • Black Power Heated Side Mirrors w/Manual Folding
  • Variable Intermittent Wipers

2018 Chrysler Pacifica Safety

9.0/10

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is available with a long list of active and passive safety features, which have helped the car get 5 stars from NHTSA. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) also awarded the car with “Top Safety Pick+”. The Pacifica also comes loaded with an advanced 8 airbags system that covers all three rows. Besides that, Chrysler also filled the Pacifica with some efficient and important safety features. Some of the safety features include:

  • Blind-Spot Monitoring
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Rear Parking Sensors
  • Automated Emergency Braking
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Automatic High-Beams
  • Lane-Keeping Assist

2018 Chrysler Pacifica Competition

9.0/10

Chrysler Pacifica Vs. Honda Odyssey

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica has far better ride quality than the Odyssey, and minivans are expected to have such an impressive trait. Both the companies get close to toes with each other for the expertise they have in building this particular car segment. Now there's something where Honda excels, and it’s the transmission.

Honda Odyssey

Where Chrysler takes all it’s time to shift, clunking and slotting a gear and then catching the pace, the Honda is far more swift in getting up to speeds with the smoother shifting gearbox.

Chrysler Pacifica Vs Dodge Grand Caravan

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is a safer option to go for. It has been a long time that Dodge Caravan has had any major updates, so the safety ratings and the developments plummet. The fuel economy, cargo area, and tricks you can do to the seats are far better on the Chrysler. In any trim generally, the Pacifica is far better featured and equipped.

Dodge Grand Caravan

The Dodge Caravan is still the one with an impressive V6 engine and low price, and if that matters to you, Dodge would tick just the right boxes saving you some bucks too.

Chrysler Pacifica Vs Toyota Sienna

The fight between the two minivans is a tough one as both manage to dominate some aspect or another. Chrysler holds an upper edge in a few areas but Toyota shows its dominance in a far better department of power and acceleration.

Toyota Sienna

Thus, the decision between the two depends on what you want from your vehicle.

2018 Chrysler Pacifica Final Verdict

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica scores well on all grounds. However, there might be few issues that might come across as deal-breakers. But on ground and paper, this is one of the best minivans that you score in the price range. With most safety features being offered as standard on the 2018 edition, the Pacifica has become one serious point of consideration in the minivan space. The only downsides we fell are lack of cargo capacity, ground clearance (comparatively), and low towing capacity. If you can live with these, you have your near-perfect minivan for the year 2018 and beyond.

An efficient and practical option.

Pros - Smoothest handling I have felt in a minivan, the ride across various roads is also one of the smoothest I have felt.

Cons - The rear seats could have been much more comfortable, and the design could have been a bit more eye catching.

Nice, decent and can be trusted.

Driving pacifica on country roads

Pros - Predictable steering, Sophisticated design.

Cons - Clunky Transmission at times

The interiors are fine , exteriors are not problematic, the price is apt. Looking at these factors one should buy this car if he has a large family.
