The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is one of the most advanced minivans available today due to its large collection of technology features. These enhance the driver and passengers’ entertainment, boost their convenience when driving and augment the driver’s control when operating the minivan.
Technology for entertainment
One area in which the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica excels is its entertainment systems. First the Pacifica offers the passengers SiriusXM® satellite radio with a full year of complimentary service. Then, to provide music of the best quality possible, the 2018 Pacifica offers an available Harman Kardon® Premium Surround Sound System, which creates its rich sound with 20 speakers spread throughout the cabin.
Also impressive is the Pacifica’s rear-seat entertainment with the available Uconnect® Theater. This system includes dual 10.1-inch HD touchscreens on the backs of the front two seats. These screens are equipped with a Blu-ray™ player, dual HDMI input ports, wireless headphones, wireless show streaming, Bluetooth® remote controls and available games and apps like the classic license plate game, backseat bingo and math flash cards.
Technology for convenience
The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica also benefits from the brand’s celebrated Uconnect infotainment system, which controls all of the Pacifica’s many tech features. It smoothly integrates phone connectivity with available Navigation, the entertainment systems and Bluetooth streaming audio, all controllable using Voice Command.
Technology for safety
The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica supports its title as an excellent family vehicle with its safety technology.
For example, there is the available 360-degree Surround View Camera, which uses four cameras positioned around the minivan to stitch together a bird’s-eye view of the Pacifica. It’s especially valuable when driving in tight areas. The Pacifica also offers standard ParkSense® Rear Park Assist with Stop, which detects obstacles when the minivan is reversing, provides warnings to alert the driver and may even apply the brakes to prevent a collision.
The Pacifica includes safety systems to protect occupants during the most dangerous driving scenarios. For instance, when backing out of a parking spot, standard Rear Cross Path Detection helps the driver watch those hard-to-see angles when the side view is blocked by cars. Similarly, the Pacifica offers an available Blind Spot Monitoring System that warns the driver when a vehicle has entered one of the Pacifica’s blind zones.
The Pacifica’s technology is just one of the reasons why it is such a well-loved minivan, making it no surprise that it was awarded the titles of Consumer’s Digest Best Buy, Kelley Blue Book Best Buy, Cars.com Best New Family Car for 2017, Consumer Guide® Best Buy for 2018 and North American Utility Vehicle of the Year for 2017.
