Everyone’s favorite high-class minivan is back at it again for 2022, and this time around it’s bringing new in-car technologies, such as a standard fitted air filter and optional Amazon Fire TV. There’s even a new Silver Mist color choice joining the exterior palette.
Features that have been carried over from previous model years include maximum seating for 8 passengers, a generous amount of standard entertainment and safety features, along with optional all-wheel-drive (AWD). Here’s Everything You Need To Know About The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica.
The newest Pacifica is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine, which produces a healthy output of 287 horsepower with 262 lb-ft of torque. It’s connected to a 9-speed automatic transmission, which allows for a respectable highway fuel economy of 28 mpg (FWD) and 25 mpg (AWD).
Front-wheel-drive (FWD) serves as the standard transmission, while AWD is standard on top two trims but also optional on the Touring and Touring L. There is also a fuel-saving stop/start system that activates while the car is either parked or at a stoplight, however, this can be turned off for those who find the constant restarts quite maddening.
The Pacifica doesn’t stray too far from its design from the 2021 model year, but it’s still considered sleek and sexy for a minivan. However, if you really want to amplify the car’s style, you might want to opt for the highest-ranking Pinnacle, as this model has available 20-inch alloy wheels, while the inside shows off its quilted Nappa leather upholstery and lumbar pillows for the second row.
Color options include Bright White Clearcoat, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearlcoat, Ceramic Gray Clearcoat, Fathom Blue Pearlcoat, Granite Crystal Metallic Clearcoat, Velvet Red Pearlcoat, and the new Silver Mist Clearcoat.
The Pacifica can house eight seats (seven for AWD models), with more than enough room for your long-legged friends in the third row. However, the Pinnacle model has seven seats, since it has a set of captain’s chairs in the second row.
The seats are pleasant and snug, while the optional FamCam interior camera helps parents keep an eye on their little ones. There’s also a standard “conversation mirror” added to the rearview mirror.
As expected, the luggage area already has a spacious 32.3 cubic feet of room, which expands to a maximum of 140.5 when the second and third-row seats are down.
Standards and Options
Features you’ll find on the standard Pacifica Touring include keyless entry/ignition, remote start, tri-zone automatic climate control, 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, active noise cancellation, stowable seats in the second and third rows, and a self-dimming mirror with a remote garage door opener.
The Chrysler company prioritizes the safety of its occupants, as it has a comprehensive list of technologies meant for the welfare of you and your passengers. Safety technologies include forward-collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assistance, rain-sensing wipers, hill-start assist, and automatic high beams, along with an abundance of airbags.
Features that are more entertainment-centered involve a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen with a 6-speaker audio setup. This setup also has wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, Amazon Alexa compatibility, two USB ports, Bluetooth, and satellite radio.
While all of these features are certainly captivating, we encourage buyers to at least upgrade to the Touring L, as this vehicle adds on perforated leather seating surfaces, heated front seats, heated/leather-wrapped steering wheel, sunshades for the back two rows, an augmented center console with illuminated cup holders, and a self-parking function.
The next upgrade would be the Pacifica Limited, which comes with a 3-pane panoramic sunroof, hands-free sliding side door and tailgate operation, Nappa leather seating surfaces, 8-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, heated/ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, wireless charging, navigation, wireless smartphone integration, and a vacuum cleaner.
As we previously discussed, the Pinnacle trim has opulent materials such as quilted Nappa leather upholstery and lumbar pillows for the second row. There is also an interior cabin camera, a rear-seat entertainment system, and a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.
