Chrysler pacifica 2020 review

Chrysler pacifica 2020 review DEFAULT

Overview

Practical, comfortable, graceful, and undeniably handsome, the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica has family transportation down pat. It's offered with either a regular V-6 or a plug-in hybrid powertrain, and can be equipped with optional all-wheel drive. Its refined road manners make the Pacifica a pleasure to drive, whether you're logging interstate road-trip miles or simply shuttling kids to the high school football game. Cargo capacity is vast, especially with the second and third rows folded flat into their built-in alcoves in the Pacifica's floor. Its base price is loftier than rivals such as the Kia Carnival and the Honda Odyssey, but that's because the Pacifica's entry-level trims are marked under the Chrysler Voyager name, a van we review separately. While the rest of America continues to crave SUVs and crossovers, we'll be over here beating the drum for the more practical minivan—the Pacifica, in particular.

What's New for 2022?

In addition to a new in-cabin air-filtration system, the 2022 Pacifica also gains an optional Amazon Fire TV feature that will allow passengers to connect to streaming services to watch movies and TV shows through the optional rear-seat entertainment systems. Pacificas equipped with this feature also will display content on the front infotainment screen, but only while the transmission is in park. Elsewhere, the hybrid model gains a Max Regeneration indicator for the gauge cluster and Silver Mist joins the color palette.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

The midrange Touring L offers the best mix of features and value as it adds a host of additional features over the base Touring model. Those standard features include a heated steering wheel, perforated leather upholstery, heated front seats, and 18-inch wheels. We're fine sticking with front-wheel drive, but we'll let you make that call if you want all-wheel drive. We'd suggest staying with the standard 3.5-liter V-6, though, as we had a few reliability hiccups with our long-term Pacifica hybrid.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

It's not the quickest minivan we've tested, but the front-wheel-drive Pacifica is far from sluggish (it reaches 60 mph in 7.3 seconds, about midpack in terms of performance) and feels plenty peppy around town. In nonhybrid guise, it packs a 287-hp 3.6-liter V-6 and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Pacifica hybrid makes less total horsepower (only 260 ponies) from its 3.6-liter V-6 and two electric motors backed up by a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery. In our testing, its zero-to-60-mph time trailed the gas-powered model by 0.5 second. We'll perform instrumented testing on the all-wheel-drive Pacifica soon and update this review with its results.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

In addition to being space efficient, a minivan should also be fuel efficient. The Pacifica Limited we tested delivered an impressive 31 mpg on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route—that's tops for minivans. According to the EPA, the Pacifica hybrid can travel up to 33 miles on electric power and is rated at 84 MPGe combined. Around town, we were easily able to match the EPA's 33-mile estimate. On the highway, the Pacifica hybrid managed 23.4 miles of electric-only driving before the gasoline engine kicked on. While we haven't had the opportunity to test the new all-wheel-drive model, we expect to update this review with test results soon. For more information about the Pacifica's fuel economy, visit the EPA's website.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Airy, spacious, and packed with cubbies, cupholders, slide-out bins, and connectivity, the Pacifica is big on the features that minivan buyers love. Fit, finish, and materials are all fairly decent, but a few down-market plastic pieces lurk inside the cabin. Upscale Limited and Pinnacle models come with a taller center console that blends more seamlessly with the dashboard, giving those trims a more SUV-like feel from behind the wheel. The fancy Pinnacle model comes with quilted-leather upholstery and even offers matching lumbar pillows for the second-row captain's chairs—a feature we haven't seen since the last time the ultra-luxurious Mercedes-Maybach S-class visited our office. The Pacifica's standard Stow 'n Go seats offer less padding than those in its rivals because they need to fold up compactly enough to fit inside the floor bins. To make up for relinquishing the Stow 'n Go second row in hybrid models (the battery pack takes up all of the underfloor-storage space), Chrysler engineers added extra cushioning to the standard captain's chairs. When it comes to hauling cargo, the Pacifica doesn't disappoint. We managed to fit 53 of our carry-on suitcases inside with all the seats stowed. A built-in vacuum cleaner is available as an option, but it occupies space that can otherwise be devoted to an optional mini-spare tire.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Chrysler's Uconnect 5 infotainment system is projected onto a glossy 10.1-inch touchscreen display that's framed by climate-control vents on the van's dashboard. Uconnect 5 is new and offers a reconfigurable home screen and Amazon Alexa integration. It has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, which can be connected wirelessly, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. An optional rear-seat entertainment system provides dual touchscreens to keep the kids placated and can be had with Amazon Fire TV, which provides access to movies and TV via embedded streaming apps. Up to 12 USB ports dot the Pacifica's cabin, including some that are the new USB-C type that offer quicker charging for smart devices.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The Pacifica adds to its safety standing by offering nearly every conceivable driver-assistance feature available today. For more information about the Pacifica's crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:

  • Standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Standard blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Standard adaptive cruise control and lane-departure warning

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Chrysler offers a warranty package that is par for the class. The Kia Carnival does offer lengthier terms, but the Pacifica allows for longer use of the roadside-assistance plan. The Pacifica hybrid model has a 10-year/100,000-mile warranty on hybrid components.

  • Limited warranty covers three years or 36,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers five years or 60,000 miles
  • Hybrid components are covered for 10 years or 100,000 miles
  • No complimentary scheduled maintenance

Chrysler Pacifica Expert Review

Motor Trend Staff

More than 35 years after Chrysler broke new ground with the minivan, it continues to be an evergreen competitor in the segment. The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica offers spacious capacity with room for up to eight passengers. The standard engine is a 287-hp V-6, and a plug-in Pacifica Hybrid model is also available.

With the return of the Voyager nameplate to the Chrysler lineup, the Pacifica now assumes the mantle of the more prestigious minivan offering. A new Red S appearance package is available, with special trim, features, and 20-inch wheels.

The Chrysler Pacifica can even tow up to 3,600 pounds. So if you're looking to take the kids, their stuff, and the boat to the lake, maybe a minivan will fit the bill after all.

  • Honeycomb grille pattern now standard on Pacifica Hybrid models
  • New interior Ceramic Grey Clear paint color and new Nova Black bezels on instrument panel and door trim
  • Dual-pane panoramic sunroof option now available on all Pacifica gas models
  • Pacifica Touring L and Touring L Plus models include standard driver seat memory
  • Pacifica Hybrid Touring model adds HomeLink, second-row sunshades and an available Stow 'n Place roof rack
  • Pacifica Hybrid Limited now features second-row one-touch windows

In our first test of a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Touring, we proclaimed it to be "your new minivan benchmark." Kudos went to surprisingly impressive handling and a 0-60 mph time in the 6-second range, as well as the "cavernous" interior and innovative features. In doing so, we said that Chrysler has "set a stratospherically high bar for Toyota and Honda" to match.

Indeed, the features of our 2018 long-term Pacifica were a boon to a new dad on our staff, though reliability woes diminished his enthusiasm.  A longer-than-expected dealer stay compounded the issue: "A month is an awfully long time to go without your car. And all that lost time stings even more when you find out two of the three issues you took it in for haven't been fixed."

The Chrysler Pacifica comes with a 3.6-liter V-6 making 287 hp and 262 lb-ft, mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission driving the front wheels. All Pacifica models are rated at 19/28 mpg city/highway.

Pacifica Hybrid versions pair a plug-in hybrid powertrain with the V-6, with a combined city/highway rating of 30 mpg and 82 MPGe.

The 2020 Pacifica received a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars). The 2019 Pacifica received a front crash prevention designation of Superior by the IIHS, with tests performed on a Pacifica equipped with optional front crash prevention. The Pacifica fully avoided a collision in both the 12-mph low-speed and 25-mph high-speed autobrake tests. The IIHS also rated the Pacifica a Top Safety Pick with an overall rating of Good (the highest rating), though passenger-side Small Overlap test returned an Acceptable rating.

The Pacifica's Advanced SafetyTec package includes a 360-degree surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, blind-spot and cross-path detection, advanced brake assist, lane departure warning, parallel and perpendicular parking assist, front and rear parking sensors, and rain-sensing wipers.

The Chrysler Pacifica features standard seating for seven. All models feature optional seating for eight. Rear cargo space measures 32.3 cubic feet behind the third row, 87.5 cu-ft behind the second row, and 140.5 cu-ft behind the first row. Front/second/third row legroom is 41.1/39/36.5 inches, respectively.

The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica comes standard with a six-speaker stereo and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system featuring eight USB ports and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. A 13-speaker Alpine audio system is optional on Touring L and standard on Touring L Plus and Limited models, with a 20-speaker Harman Kardon system optional. Touring L Plus and Limited models also feature an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with HD radio and satellite navigation.

An optional Uconnect wireless streaming package includes a 115-volt power outlet, two 10.1-inch seatback video screens, a Blu-ray player, dual HDMI ports, a 3-channel remote control, a USB video port, and 3-channel wireless headphones.

Chrysler's popular people mover features room for up to eight passengers in gas-powered models, and seven in plug-in hybrid variants.

2019 Chrysler Pacifica Touring: The base Pacifica comes with 17-inch aluminum wheels, cloth seats, second- and third-row seats with Stow 'n Go, heated power side mirrors, auto-dimming rearview mirror, tri-zone automatic climate control, tilt/telescoping steering column, HomeLink, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with six speakers and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity.

2019 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L: Step up to Touring L for second-row seatback grocery bag hooks, retractable third-row window shades, a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, eight-way power driver's seat, and heated front seats.

2019 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L Plus: This trim adds illuminated cupholders, driver-seat memory, one-touch up/down front and rear windows, 8-way power passenger seat, heated second-row seats, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation and a 13-speaker Alpine audio system.

2019 Chrysler Pacifica Limited: The top-level Pacifica includes 18-inch aluminum wheels, hands-free sliding doors and liftgate, HID headlights, power-folding side mirrors, tri-pane panoramic sunroof, integrated vacuum cleaner, and ventilated front seats.

Overview

Here at Car and Driver, we are huge fans of minivans: they are great at hauling people and stuff, get good fuel economy, and in most cases are better than crossovers and SUVs in accomplishing their missions. At the top of the minivan heap is the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica, which excelled in much of our testing and is competitive with its rivals in other tests. We like the Pacifica so much, in fact, that we have named it to our 10Best Trucks and SUVs list multiple times. We also subjected both a 2018 Pacifica hybrid and a regular gas-powered 2017 Pacifica to 40,000-mile tests where they both were staff favorites. With standard second- and third-row stowable seats, one of our favorite infotainment systems, and an optional hybrid powertrain, the Pacifica is the best minivan you can buy.

What's New for 2020?

Following on the heels of the blacked-out look of the S Appearance for 2019 is the new Red S Appearance package, which is offered on the Limited trim versions of the gas-powered and hybrid models. The package features a special interior, 20-inch wheels (19s on the hybrid), Advanced SafetyTec driver-assistance technologies, a 20-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system with a Uconnect theater setup, eight-passenger seating, and tow package (the hybrid also gets a tri-pane panoramic sunroof). All-wheel drive will be offered on a limited number of 2020 models but will be more widely available on the re-skinned 2021 Pacifica.

Trim Level Pricing and Which One to Buy

We'd opt for the midrange Touring L trim, which features power-operated sliding side doors and liftgate, a heated steering wheel, and rain-detecting variable wipers. We'd then add the Advanced SafetyTec package, which includes adaptive cruise, a 360-degree exterior-camera system, parallel and perpendicular park assist, forward-collision warning, and lane-departure warning. We'd also suggest the Premium Audio package, which adds a 13-speaker 506-watt Alpine sound system and a second- and third-row USB charge port. It features a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen that makes operating the infotainment system easier while on the go.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

It's not the quickest minivan we've tested, but the Pacifica is far from sluggish (it reaches 60 mph in 7.3 seconds, about mid-pack) and feels plenty peppy around town. In non-hybrid guise, it packs a 287-hp 3.6-liter V-6 and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Pacifica hybrid makes less total horsepower (only 260 ponies) between its 3.6-liter V-6 and two electric motors backed up by a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery but feels similarly sprightly in the real world. In our testing, however, it trailed the gas-powered model to 60 mph by 0.5 second.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

In addition to being space efficient, a minivan should also be fuel efficient. The Pacifica Limited we tested delivered an impressive 31 mpg on our 200-mile highway fuel-economy loop, which is tops for minivans. According to the EPA, the Pacifica hybrid can travel up to 33 miles on electric power and is rated at 84 MPGe combined. Around town, we were easily able to match the EPA's 33-mile estimate. On the highway, the Pacifica hybrid managed 23.4 miles of electric-only driving before the gasoline engine kicked on.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Airy, spacious, and packed with cubbies, cupholders, slide-out bins, and connectivity, the Pacifica is big on the features that minivan buyers love. Fit, finish, and materials are several steps above the Dodge Grand Caravan, but a few downmarket plastic pieces lurk inside the cabin.

The Pacifica's standard Stow 'n Go seats offer less padding than those in its rivals because they need to fold up compactly enough to fit inside the floor bins. As reparation for relinquishing the Stow 'n Go second row in hybrid models (the battery pack takes up all of the underfloor seat storage space), Chrysler engineers added extra cushioning to the standard captain's chairs.

When it comes to hauling cargo, the Pacifica doesn’t disappoint. We managed to fit 53 of our carry-on suitcases inside with all the seats stowed. A built-in vacuum cleaner is standard on Limited models, but it occupies space that can otherwise be devoted to an optional mini-spare tire; buyers of lesser trims will have to make do with their own Shop-Vac.

Chrysler

Infotainment and Connectivity

Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system remains one of our favorites, with knobs and buttons for audio controls rather than finicky touch-sensitive controls. In addition to the Uconnect system's intuitive software and general excellence in usability, it's highly responsive to inputs. It offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, a faster processor, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

Acing its crashworthiness testing would be enough, but the Pacifica adds to its safety standing by offering every conceivable driver-assistance feature available today. Key safety features include:

  • Standard blind-spot monitor
  • Standard rear automated emergency braking
  • Standard rear parking sensors

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Chrysler offers a warranty package that is par for the class. The Kia Sedona does offer lengthier terms, but the Pacifica allows for longer use of the roadside-assistance plan. The Pacifica hybrid model has a 10-year/100,000-mile warranty on hybrid components.

  • Limited warranty covers 3 years or 36,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers 5 years or 60,000 miles
  • Hybrid components are covered for 10 years or 100,000 miles
  • No complimentary scheduled maintenance

2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid - MotorWeek Road Test

2020 Chrysler Pacifica review: Still a great option

If you just can't wait, the current Pacifica is still an outstanding product. Not only does it have the most versatile interior in the minivan segment, thanks to its Stow 'n Go second-row seats, it's also graced with an upscale interior, has a superb multimedia system, and offers features aplenty. Beyond all that, it's a seriously attractive machine, dressed in elegant, almost windswept styling. You may not be a fan of the minivan form factor, but it's hard to argue with what this product delivers. 

Feels like quality

Generally, Chrysler has not had an enviable reputation for quality. In spite of this, the Pacifica feels rock solid. Nothing about it is frail or flimsy. Tug on an exterior door handle and it's sturdy. The rotary shifter is reassuringly robust as you click through the gears. This minivan's buttons and switches all seem built for the long haul.

Not only does the Pacifica Limited I'm testing here exude quality, it looks the part, too. Its dashboard design is flowing and smooth, dressed up with attractive materials and French seams. The leather is soft and offset by contrast-color piping. Even the care designers put into crafting this minivan's instrument cluster is apparent. The analog tachometer and speedometer are embellished with icy-blue accent lighting, which looks rich.

The Pacifica may not be as historically reliable as a Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna, but in many ways this Chrysler feels more thoughtfully designed and artfully crafted than either of those competitors.  

Embellishing my tester's already handsome styling is Chrysler's S Appearance Package, a modestly priced $795 extra. It includes things like Nappa leather, black trim both inside and out, special badging and a roof rack. Beyond that, this minivan is fitted with optional 21-inch wheels, which help give it an almost sinister look. Those rollers cost $1,095 and come wrapped in Falken all-season tires.

A people-pleasing cargo carrier

When it comes to passenger comfort, the Pacifica deserves plenty of praise. Its front buckets are supportive enough that even cross-country drives shouldn't leave you feeling like you fell down a flight of stairs.

This van's aft-most bench seat is also more than hospitable, with ample space for heads and legs. Even lanky adults should have no trouble fitting or being comfortable for hours. Making it a breeze to get back there, the second-row buckets tip forward in one smooth motion, providing a wide pathway for easy access. In my tester, passengers relegated to steerage still receive a first-class experience, treated to amenities like sliding sunshades, power-reclining backrests and reading lights. There's even a USB port for keeping today's all-important mobile devices juiced up.

Increasing this van's versatility, at the push of a button, that split third-row seat folds into the floor automatically. The mechanism and motors make all kinds of crunching and whirring noises, but in just a few seconds you can transform the Pacifica from a people-hauler into a cargo-transporter. 

But between this minivan's first and third rows is where the magic really happens. Stow 'n Go is an ingenious bit of engineering that allows the Pacifica's second-row buckets, which also recline and can be heated, to quickly and easily fold away, leaving a flat floor in their place. It's almost like Chrysler built a minivan with a basement. You can store stuff beneath passengers' feet, but as required, those second-row buckets tuck away, folding up like a piece of origami. The only real downside to Stow 'n Go is that the front seats have to be moved all the way forward before you can drop those second-row chairs, but this is a minor annoyance compared to what competing minivans make you go through.

The Pacifica's second-row seats are slightly less comfortable than what you get in an Odyssey; however, Chrysler's solution is still far superior. If you need maximum cargo space in the Honda, you've got to completely remove its second-row seats, and they're real backbreakers, clocking in at around 70 pounds apiece. Then, after herniating a disc or three in your back, you've got to clear a spot in the garage to store the damn things. Yeah, no thanks.

Talkin' tech

But there's much more to the Pacifica than just comfort and storage space. This minivan offers plenty of technology as well. 

The Limited model I'm testing here comes with a range of amenities like power sliding doors and an automatic lift gate. Keyless entry with push-button start is included as well, ditto for remote start, which is perfect for preconditioning the Pacifica's cabin in adverse weather while increasing your carbon footprint at the same time.

A Uconnect infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen, integrated navigation and support for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard fare on Limited models. Per usual, it's responsive and easy to use, plus it includes 4G LTE connectivity and has an integrated Wi-Fi hotspot for on-the-go connectivity.

A 20-speaker Harman Kardon sound system ensures everyone gets a concert-quality listening experience. This extra is totally worth the $695 Chrysler charges for it.

Keeping messes to a minimum, a Stow 'n Vac in-vehicle vacuum is included here. It's mounted along the driver's side of the vehicle next to the second-row seat. It should be super-handy for cleaning up all the messes that tend to come with minivan ownership, things like dirty footprints, dropped fruit snacks, animal cracker crumbs and the like. 

Amusing second-row passengers is the Uconnect Theater entertainment system. With a pair of screens, a smattering of ports, a 115-volt power outlet and even a Blu-ray player, it should keep folks of all ages from going stir-crazy on long drives. This options group adds $1,995 to the sticker price. 

Finally, no modern vehicle is complete without a raft of driver-assistance technologies. Here, the $995 Advanced Safety Tech Group throws features like rain-sensing windshield wipers, front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning and more into the mix. It also includes automatic high beams, which are some of the most responsive in the business, and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability. This last item works extremely well, being both quick witted and smooth, even in dense traffic on the highway.

Six cylinders, nine speeds

Smooth is also an adjective that describes the Pacifica's drivetrain. This minivan is powered by a potent and refined 3.6-liter V6 engine. With variable valve timing and lift, it delivers 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, all of which gets routed to the front tires through a nine-speed automatic transmission.

That ZF-designed gearbox is mostly smooth, shuffling through its ratios without drawing much attention to itself. The only problem is the transmission can be a little reluctant to downshift. Getting it to drop a few gears requires a big ol' prod of the accelerator and some patience as it sorts out your request. 

The Pacifica's acceleration is strong, moving with enthusiasm when you give it the spurs. Even as the tachometer needle reaches the upper end of its range, the engine remains relatively quiet, with minimal vibration making its way into the cabin. 

The standard stop-start system is also super-smooth, halting combustion when waiting at a red light or while stationary in a drive-through lane. Lift your foot off the brake pedal and the Pacifica's engine is up and running again in an instant. Naturally, this feature improves around-town fuel economy. Expect 19 miles per gallon in the city and 28 mpg on highway trips. Combined, this van is rated at 22 mpg. 

The Pacifica's steering wheel is chunky and nicely detailed, with large buttons, perforated leather and a contract-color accent piece running around the rim's circumference. As for handling, the tiller is nicely weighted and surprisingly accurate for a vehicle that weighs more than 4,300 pounds. Overall, it's more comfortable and far better to drive than the Land Rover Discovery Sport I recently tested, though it's also nearly as expensive.

Buy now or hold out?

The fully loaded Pacifica Limited seen here checks out for a substantial $51,515, including the above-mentioned options and $1,495 in destination charges. To be certain, that's a lot of scratch, but at least it buys you a lot of vehicle.

The current-generation Pacifica has been on sale for about four years now. This means it's right on schedule for a refresh, which the automaker is slated to deliver. If you want the latest and greatest Chrysler minivan, hold out until the fourth quarter. You'll be able to get a Pacifica with an even more impressive infotainment system and all-wheel drive. But, if you're content owning something a little older, a product that's still an excellent choice, grab the 2020 model. Either way, you really can't go wrong.

After looking at me for a few seconds, she exhaled, got up from the couch, turned her back to me, then got down on her knees and stuck her ass. Up, pulling her robe up to the waist.
