As a fifth generation of the minivan, 2018 Chrysler Pacifica represents one of those mysterious habits to perform completely practical minivan on crossover’s platform. Yet, the sliding door which does not exist on minivans since 1998 catches the eye at first glance, but do not be fooled with that simple resolution. Pacifica has many improvements from the last model that we cannot forget about. There is much better ground clearance, almost as on the most expensive trucks on the market, with perfectly chosen interior equipment and better engine performances, so we cannot say that Pacifica is only a last generation of vans. It is way more than that.
Mentioned ground clearance provides extended front end covered with a slightly curved hood, which descends vertically over thin gridded front grille. At the ends of the grille in 2018, Chrysler Pacifica is two also thin front lights with LED line on the bottom of it. Much more interesting is wide air intake rounded with the chromatic line, which curves and makes double eight, to surround rounded fog lights. Besides deep dents in the middle of the doors, there are no other decorations and lines, including the roof, which is flat with aluminum holders. The rear end is also simple, almost flat, with only small bulges around the license plate and nothing more.
The cabin is as we expected on the car like 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is as comfortable as wide and functional. The wide dashboard has a big bulge in the middle, to carry all important devices, including 7-inch touchscreen and commands. The manufacturer promises important helpers, like a navigation system and parking assistant, while things like Wi-Fi connection, USB ports, and 3G connectivity are in available in higher trims. The cabin is made of quality leather in two colors, which covers the wheel and dashboard, as well as adjustable seats.
The manufacturer’s specification says that 2018 Chrysler Pacifica has DOHC 24-valve V6 petrol engine with 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Paired with the nine-speed automatic transmission it is capable of producing almost 112 miles, although it is a speed limited by government, not by the engine itself. The speed of 60 mph Pacifica increases for 7.3 seconds and it stops at this speed at almost 160 feet. Fuel economy is among the best in class with 22 mpg combined.
