The 2023 Chrysler Pacifica is a family-friendly minivan that brings style, comfort, and versatility to the table. With its unique combination of powertrain and drivetrain options, as well as an impressive list of standard and available features, the Pacifica continues to stand out in the fiercely competitive minivan market.
Performance and Powertrain Options
The 2023 Chrysler Pacifica offers a variety of powertrain options, and it’s sure to have one that suits your needs. The standard powertrain consists of a 287-horsepower V-6 engine paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. This combination provides you with decent fuel efficiency on the highway while delivering enough power for your daily driving needs. If you require additional traction in slippery conditions or if you live in regions with harsh winters, an all-wheel-drive (AWD) option is available for select trims.
The Pacifica also stands out as the only minivan in its segment to offer a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle option. This alternative powertrain combines a modified V-6 engine with two electric motors and a rechargeable 16 kWh battery to deliver improved fuel efficiency.
Interior Versatility and Features
With seating for up to eight passengers and an impressive array of storage spaces throughout the cabin, the Pacifica is well equipped to handle your family’s transportation needs. Its innovative Stow ‘n Go seats allow for easy conversion from a passenger hauler to a cargo carrier with up to 140.5 cubic feet of space. Additionally, the 2023 model features an upgraded Uconnect 5 infotainment system with a 10.1-inch touchscreen, Amazon Alexa integration, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and an available Wi-Fi hotspot.
Fuel efficiency is an important consideration when you’re looking to buy a minivan. The front-wheel-drive (FWD) Pacifica Limited trim delivers an impressive 31 mpg on a 75-mph highway fuel-economy route. The plug-in hybrid electric vehicle model is rated at 82 MPGe combined and can travel up to 32 miles purely on electric power. However, it’s worth noting that the AWD models have reduced fuel economy ratings compared to their FWD counterparts.
The Pacifica comes standard with several advanced safety features that are designed to help protect your passengers and enhance your confidence on the road. Standard safety features include automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning. Available options for higher trims include a 360-degree surround-view camera system, ParkSense front park assist with stop, and parallel and perpendicular park assist.
As with any vehicle purchase, warranty coverage is an essential factor to consider. The 2023 Chrysler Pacifica offers a limited warranty covering three years or 36,000 miles, a powertrain warranty covering five years or 60,000 miles, and a hybrid components warranty covering 10 years or 100,000 miles.
