2018 Chrysler Pacifica review: Our expert's take


What it is: New last year, the larger, lower and wider Chrysler Pacifica minivan replaced the long-running Town & Country. Built on an all-new platform, the Pacifica's sleek styling brings in elements of the rest of the brand's lineup. It's also available in plug-in hybrid form and is Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle of any kind. If the name sounds familiar, it should because Chrysler made a Pacifica crossover SUV in the 2000s.



(Skip to details on the Pacifica Hybrid)


A new entry-level L trim level is available, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity is now standard. The available 8.4-inch touchscreen multimedia system now includes HD Radio, and navigation-equipped versions of the system now offer 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity. Uconnect Theater now offers wireless streaming from Android devices.

Pacifica Hybrid
Chrysler made headlines when it introduced the Pacifica Hybrid, the industry’s first electrified minivan. Featuring a plug-in hybrid drivetrain, the minivan can travel up to 33 miles on electric power alone. The Pacifica Hybrid’s trim names now mirror the regular Pacifica’s, and a less expensive Touring Plus version is available for 2018.

What’s Special

  • Chrysler-estimated total range of 566 miles
  • 16-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack
  • Electrically variable transmission and two electric motors

Perfect for our family

This vehicle is perfect for what my family needs right now. Both my kids (5 & 2) can climb into it unassisted (any mom knows, giving the kids any level of independence is great). Both rows of seats stow into the floor. We have the back row stowed to give us lots of cargo room for the stroller, diaper bag, scooter, karate bag, etc etc etc. Love the automatic doors on both sides... a nice upgrade from when I was a kid and it was a manual slider only on one side! Our one downside, but it's a big one... the media center in this car was a total after thought. It does not connect as expected to my iphone, and the AppleCarPlay seems to open a secondary window (it's not native to the car like the Ford Sync). So far, I have not gotten the phone to connect correctly via bluetooth - I have to plug in. The audio varies wildly - I have to turn the volume up almost all the way to hear someone on the phone, but when the radio kicks on, the whole car vibrates. I can't turn the audio off without turning off the ENTIRE screen. There is no native GPS to the car that I can tell, which isn't a huge downside since we have our phones, but was definitely surprising to see. All in all, this is the car we need right now as a young family with a lot of stuff to cart around. It has a lot of family friendly features that I 100% appreciate. I imagine that the newer models have better media integration with the iPhone.

Very comfortable and powerful

This is the perfect cross between a van and a luxury vehicle. Plenty of room inside for anything you want to do. The engine is so smooth and powerful, you have to watch for creeping on the speedometer. We have owned Chryslers for over 30yrs and this is one of their best.
