Expert Rating

4.1 (Excellent)
19 City / 28 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2018 Chrysler Pacifica OVERVIEW

The minivan segment isn’t what it used to be, but no one told the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica that. Since its 2017 redesign, this people mover has represented a sharp right turn for modern minivans with its handsome looks, nifty seating system, and powerful engine. Chrysler may have invented the minivan, but with the Pacifica, the automaker is looking to bring some light back into an overlooked segment.

What's New for 2018

Chrysler has made a host of changes for the 2018 Pacifica. For starters, there’s a new entry-level L model that undercuts last year’s base trim, the LX, by $2,000 with a price tag of $28,090 (including a $1,095 destination charge).

The majority of other changes involve new features, including the SafetyTec Group, which adds rear park assist and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert to the Pacifica’s list of standard equipment. Other additions are model specific – the Touring Plus trim gets remote start and a security alarm as standard, the Touring L trim scores a new Premium Group with a 13-speaker audio system, available power passenger seat, and perforated leather seats, while the Touring L Plus gets a standard Uconnect infotainment and navigation system with an 8.4-inch screen and a panoramic sunroof and a 20-speaker audio system as optional extras.

On the technology front, the Pacifica benefits from the latest generation of Uconnect that is available with either a seven-inch or 8.4-inch touchscreen. The top-end Uconnect system, which is standard on the Touring L Plus and above, adds 4G Wi-Fi to the minivan. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity is standard across the range.

On the outside, the new Pacifica gets a host of trim-specific changes. The Touring Plus trim recieves new wheels and body-color mirrors, a Chrome Stow ‘n Place roof rack is a new addition on the Touring L trim, while new exterior paint colors include Ocean Blue Metallic and Copper Pearl Coat.


Pricing for the entry-level L trim starts at $28,090 (all prices include the $1,095 destination fee) and comes with 17-inch steel wheels, cruise control, power windows, cloth seats, Stow ‘n Go second-row seats, a third-row Stow n’ Go bench seat, a six-speaker audio system, and Uconnect 4 with a seven-inch touchscreen display. The only available package for the L trim is an alarm ($495) that adds a 24/7 electronic vehicle tracking, which is offered on every trim.


Starting at $30,890, the LX trim adds a variety of features over the base model. The minivan gets a stop-start system for the V6 engine, a more comfortable suspension, 17-inch aluminum wheels, three-zone manual temperature control, LED running lights with halogen headlights, LED tailights, ambient surround lighting, steering-wheel mounted audio controls, an eight-way power driver’s seat, and second-row bucket seats as standard. Aside from the alarm, the LX's only notable optional extra is the $795 Tire and Wheel Group, which swaps out the base 17-inch wheels for a more stylish set. An eight-passenger seating setup is $495.

Touring Plus

The Touring Plus trim adds power-sliding doors, premium fog lamps, a black grille, automatic headlights, a power liftgate, heated and power-operated mirrors, three-zone automatic climate control, remote start, SiriusXM satellite radio, a security alarm, and remote proximity over the LX trim. Prices for the Touring Plus model starts at $33,690. The Touring Plus trim has all of the same available packages and options as the LX model, but the Tire and Wheel Group costs $100 more because it adds 18-inch wheels.

Touring L

Priced at $36,590, the Touring L adds a Stow ‘n Place roof rack, grocery bag hooks, second- and third-row retractable shades, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, and perforated leather trim as standard.

The Touring L is available with the Advanced SafetyTec Group, which adds automatic emergency braking with forward collision warning, a seven-inch color display in the instrument cluster, rain-sensing wipers, automatic high-beams, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, lane departure warning with lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, a surround-view camera, and automatic parallel and perpendicular parking assist. The Advanced SafetyTec Group costs $995, but since its requires the $895 Premium Audio Group (13-speaker audio system, Uconnect 4 with a 8.4-inch display, Active Noise Control System, HD radio, and a USB charge port for the third row), the real-world cost for the all the safety gear is $1,890.

Touring L Plus

The Touring L Plus starts at $39,790 and comes with rear ambient lighting, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 115-volt power outlet, a heated steering wheel, illuminated cup holders, power windows with one-touch up/down, eight-way power front seats, heated second-row seats, Stow ‘n Go Assist on the passenger side, a 13-speaker Alpine audio system, and 8.4-inch touchscreen display as standard.

The Touring L Plus trim includes all of the same gear from the Touring L plus the Trailer Tow Group ($995) that adds a trailer tow wiring harness, a hitch with a two-inch receiver, a heavy-duty radiator, and Trailer Sway Damping and a Harman Kardon Sound Group ($695) that adds a 20-speaker sound system and a 760-watt amplifier. Hands-free power-sliding doors are also available, ringing up at $795.


Starting at $44,790, the range-topping Limited trim adds hands-free sliding doors, a hands-free liftgate, LED fog lamps, HID headlights, power-folding and heated exterior mirrors, 18-inch polished aluminum wheels, a plusher steering wheel, a Stow ‘n Vac integrated vacuum cleaner, premium leather-trimmed seats, third-row power folding Stow ‘n Go bench seats, and ventilated front seats as standard.

Available packages for the Limited trim include all of the Touring L Plus' offerings, while the eight-passenger seating arrangement and the 20-inch wheel group are packaged together as a no-cost option (although it does delete the panoramic sunroof). The Uconnect Theater with Streaming ($1,995) adds a 115-volt auxiliary power outlet, a Blu-Ray/DVD player, an HDMI port, a pair of 10.1-inch setback-mounted video screens, a remote control, wireless headphones, and a USB video port. A version of this package with the 20-speaker Harman Kardon audio system rings up at $2,690.

CarsDirect Tip

While we usually recommend going for a more affordable trim, consumers that plan to use the Pacifica as a do-it-all vehicle capable of entertaining seven passengers should go all-in and consider the Pacifica Limited with the UConnect Theater and Advanced SafetyTec packages. The Stow ‘n Go Assist will surely come in handy while the 10-inch seatback touchscreens will keep passengers entertained, and the optional suite of safety features will give consumers real peace of mind.
