Eric's Autos: 2018 Chrysler Pacifica

Eric Peters on

The easily removable second-row center seat adds (or subtracts) passenger and/or cargo capacity as needed.

It has a class-best tow rating (3,600 pounds).

The rear-seat entertainment system includes two 10-inch Blu-ray monitors built into the driver and passenger seat backs.

What's Not So Good

It has a wide turning circle (almost 40 feet -- several feet wider than rivals like the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna).

It has less cargo room than rivals.


All-wheel drive isn't available.

Under the Hood

The Pacifica comes standard with a slightly larger and slightly stronger V-6 engine than the Sienna and the Odyssey: It has 3.6 liters and 287 horsepower; there are 3.5 liters and 266 horsepower in the Toyota, and 3.5 liters and 248horsepower in the Honda.

The Chrysler also comes with a nine-speed automatic, whereas a six-speed automatic comes in the Sienna and Odyssey. But it works out to pretty much the same. These vans all go from zero to 60 mph in the mid to high seven-second range.
