The days of the basic minivan are gone, right? Wrong! When you need to haul the family along with all kinds of supplies and equipment, a modern and updated minivan is the answer. So, how does the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L Plus stack up to the competition? With 8-passenger seating, cargo room, and a good infotainment system, there’s something for every member of the family in this vehicle. Bloomington Chrysler has the newest and hottest minivan waiting for you right now!
How Much Space?
Even a full-size SUV doesn’t have as much space as the Chrysler Pacifica Touring L Plus. That means that the whole family, luggage, toys, and more will fit comfortably and be able to get in and out easily with two sliding side doors. Whether you’re toting the soccer team and their equipment in a soccer mom cliché or heading off on vacation, the newest minivan will meet and exceed your needs. This is unapologetically a minivan.
How Does It Look?
The Pacifica is a minivan that doesn’t pretend to be anything else. It has a wedge-shaped front end and square rear but, thanks to the new Chrysler designs, it has winged headlamps, softer lines, and chrome detailing. This is a minivan that looks good without pretending to be something else. There’s no rugged grille or aggressive stance, here, but there is a lot of style and comfort inside and out.
Comfort Is Key
Comfort while traveling is something that not many vehicles can offer—at least not for a whole family. The Pacifica promises and delivers great comfort. The seating is plush and supportive, providing back relief for the driver while sitting in traffic. No matter how hot or cold it is outside, the Pacifica offers triple-zone climate control so that everyone from front to back can be just the right temperature.
With a fold-down center section to provide a storage tray and cup holders, and a rear USB charging port, as well as plenty of head and leg space, the Pacifica caters to the comfort of all the passengers.
One of the main complaints drivers have had about minivans is that they are boxy and don’t handle well. That’s not a problem with the Pacifica. It has touring-tuned suspension and soft ride, and it gives drivers crisp turns and decent roll control. With a 287-horsepower V6, 2.6-liter engine, drivers experience great off the line acceleration and good fuel economy from a 9-speed automatic transmission.
The New York Daily News Autos team has named the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica the best minivan of the year. For many years the minivan had fallen out of favor, with crossover SUVs taking their place in popularity, but the new Pacifica is going to change the way people think about minivans all over again.
