The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica continues to rack up awards and notable distinctions. The Texas Automotive Writers Association recently named the Pacifica its choice for Family Car of Texas for the third consecutive year as well as its choice for Minivan of Texas. Yet, family-friendly features like passenger space and infotainment tech aren’t the only reason the Pacifica is singled out. It also earns plaudits for its outstanding capability, which is intended to handle your daily drive and extended road trips.
Each trim of the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 engine paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain generates an impressive 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque while returning 28 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg combined.*
To get the most from your getaways, you’ll need to bring along some gear. With the Pacifica, you earn a maximum towing capacity of 3,600 pounds. This is made possible by the Pacifica’s highly durable frame, which is constructed from dual-phase, lightweight steel.
On the inside, the eight-seat Pacifica accommodates your stuff and your passengers. There are 243 possible seating configurations, which means you never have to pack light again. Plus, you have the option of upgrading to power-folding third-row seats and ventilated seats in the front row. The available second- and third-row Stow ‘N Go® Seating and Storage System reveals under seat compartments ready to be filled. The Pacifica is also littered with map pockets, sliding drawers to keep tablets safe, cup holders and storage bins.
Tame the clutter, dirt and dust with the available Stow ‘n Vac® powered by RIGID®. Every nook and cranny is reachable with this vacuum, which makes it easier to clean up messes on the go.
The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is more than capable of delivering a powerful performance, ample cargo and passenger space and impressive towing strength to handle any journey.
