The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica offers plenty of space as both a family carrier and, with its fold-flat seating, a van for heavy-duty lifting and shifting. But for all its practicality, the 2019 Pacifica proves appealing and even attractive, which is unusual in the minivan category. Thank Chrysler's smart design inside and out as well as upscale materials and a generous level of equipment starting with the base model. Trim levels encompass L, LX, Touring, Touring L, Touring L Plus, and Limited. All but the L can seat eight and, with Chrysler's clever Stow 'n Go® system, stow the second- and third-row seats under the floor quickly and easily.
For that reason we'd suggest LX as the entry point, but recommend the Touring L as a good choice because it offers the smartest balance of desirable features and convenience equipment. All trims are powered by either a 3.6-liter V6 or a version of the V6 with an electric motor and battery pack in the Pacifica Hybrid, introduced for the first time this year. Either offers good performance, and the hybrid is able to run on battery power alone for short, local trips. Comfortable and refined, the Pacifica won't excite behind the wheel, but it also won't frustrate, and when all those seats are occupied, that’s a good thing.
