The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is a minivan with style

The Pacifica can cleverly morph from a comfortable ferry for up to eight people into a two-seat van that'll fit drywall sheets for even the most ambitious home remodeler. Seven-passenger seating is standard, with an eight-seat configuration an option from the LX trim and above. Dubbed Stow 'n Go®, those second- and third-row seats can fold into and under the floor, unlike those of competitors such as the Toyota Sienna or Honda Odyssey. The cabin has plenty of useful storage spaces, and Chrysler's touchscreen entertainment system is among the easiest to use. Two powertrain options are available: a 3.6-liter V6 or a plug-in hybrid, which adds a battery and electric motor to a version of the V6 and allows some local, electric-only driving. All have an automatic transmission driving the front wheels.

To drive, it's comfortable and capable rather than engaging or exciting, but that's not a complaint. The five trim levels start with the L, which covers the basics but comes without the useful Stow 'n Go® second-row capability. So that's why we'd suggest the LX as the entry point to the range—it gains not just those collapsible seats but adds body-colored exterior trim, alloy wheels, and a power driver's seat. Then there's the Touring Plus, Touring L, Touring L Plus, and the top-of-the-line Limited, with a number of options including upgraded audio and safety equipment. The Pacifica is a useful minivan, but its appeal goes beyond just its practicality. It’s well worth checking out if you're in the market for space and style.
