2018 Chrysler Pacifica Review

2018 Chrysler Pacifica

On the hunt for a passenger van that does more than just load up the whole family and all of your cargo? You’re in the right place. While the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica goes above and beyond when it comes to interior space, it’s also a leader in the realms of performance and top-notch features.

In this review, we at Rockwall CDJR will introduce drivers in Rockwall, Terrell, Rowlett, and Wylie to this well-rounded and impressively capable minivan. Let’s get started by looking under the front hood!

Performance Specifications 

Leading the way in the Chrysler Pacifica is a high-powered 3.6-L V6 VVT engine. This engine, which works alongside a standard 9-speed FWD automatic transmission, puts its best foot forward when it comes to both power and efficiency. 

This duo achieves a respectable EPA-estimated 28 highway MPG1. On top of that, this engine produces enough power to give the Pacifica the capability to tow a best-in-class towing capacity of 3,600 pounds2.

Towing or not, the Pacifica works hard to keep you confident on the road with standard Electronic Stability Control. This feature is selective about its braking and throttle control in order to give you the perfect amount of power for each wheel.
