Which should you buy, 2017 or 2018? The 2018 Chryslter Pacifica is a better deal, especially if you want a lower trim level
The Chrysler Pacifica, a minivan that earned Cars.com’s top award with its arrival for 2017, enters its second model year with a host of small changes. All variants have upgraded multimedia systems and a standard blind spot warning system with cross-traffic detection, with a new base trim level that’s a lot cheaper than before. The Pacifica Hybrid gets reshuffled trims, too.
The 2018 Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid are hitting dealerships now; as of this writing, they account for about 10 percent of all new Pacifica inventory on Cars.com.
