The 2023 Chrysler Pacifica has reached its seventh anniversary for its latest generation, a year past when a vehicle would get a total revamp. Regardless, this minivan has been so well crafted that it remains a top competitor in its segment, both in gasoline and especially in hybrid form.
Updates For 2023
The newest Pacifica receives a new Road Tripper package for this upcoming year. This package will be made available on the Touring L trim levels, in both gasoline and hybrid models, adding intricate graphics and wheels in Luster Gray with orange highlights. The exterior has a “Granite Crystal” trim, all-weather floor mats, and a roof rack. The gas-only Pacifica also involves the Trailer Tow Group.
Interior and In-Car Technologies
The interior of the Pacifica minivan will surely be a pleasure for all aboard. There’s more than enough room for one to stretch their legs and several storage spaces; it’s also quite visually appealing. The cup holders are also a nice touch, as they’re big lodge two 32-ounce Nalgene water bottles. Many will be pleased with the materials, particularly the perforated leather seats, smooth leather steering wheel, and charming stitching on the Limited model, with the luxury only intensifying in the top-ranking Pinnacle van. This model tracks on quilted leather seats and matching cushions for the second row.
Concerning the tech features, the UConnect infotainment system remains quick in its responses and is user-friendly with its layout. This large 10.1-inch screen, wireless Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto serve as the highlighting front-row feature. Wireless smartphone charging is also an option, while higher trim levels can be geared with a rear-seat entertainment system with screens fixed in both front seats. Another cool feature is the available FamCam that allows those up front to monitor the tiny critters from the central infotainment screen. It’s worth noting, however, that several features are restricted to the upper trims.
Fuel economy, Electric Range, and Performance Specs
The Chrysler Pacifica’s base engine s a 3.6-liter V6 with an output of 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. It’s matched to a 9-speed automatic transmission. All models pair up with front-wheel-drive (FWD) or all-wheel-drive (AWD). The EPA-estimated fuel economy comes out to 19 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, 22 mpg combined with FWD, and 17/25/20 mpg with AWD.
The Hybrid minivan is a plug-in vehicle. Plug-ins like this have a large battery pack that can produce 32 miles of fully-electric range. All one needs to do is refresh the range is plug it into a charging station, likely by an at-home charger. Ultimately, using both electric motors and a 3.6-liter V6 allows it to achieve an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in combined driving.
