The 2023 Chrysler Pacifica returns for another year essentially unchanged. The current Pacifica hit the market in 2017 and received a significant refresh for 2021.
Choosing Your Chrysler Pacifica
The Pacifica continues in four trim levels: Touring, Touring L, Limited, and Pinnacle. Pricing starts at $38,615 including destination and tops out at $55,580 for the Pinnacle. The plug-in Pacifica Hybrid starts in Touring L trim for $52,090 and goes to $61,590 for the Pinnacle.
The gas Pacifica carries a V6 engine and nine-speed automatic transmission. Starting with the Touring L, all-wheel drive is available for $2,999 in place of the standard front-drive setup. Pacifica Hybrid combines the V6 with a pair of electric motors and plug-in technology that allows the minivan to run on electricity alone for up to 32 miles. The Hybrid comes exclusively with front-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
|Engine Type||Horsepower||Torque||Fuel Economy (Combined)|
|3.6L V6||287 hp||262 lb-ft||22/20 mpg (FWD/AWD)|
|3.6L V6 Plug-In Hybrid||260 hp||262 lb-ft||30 mpg|
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The Pacifica offers abundant room for seven across three rows. The standard second-row captain's chairs and third-row can fold into the floor on the gas model. As expected for a minivan, cargo space is outstanding. Buyers get 32.3 cubic feet of space behind the third row and 87.5 cubic feet with it folded. With both rear rows down, there are 140.5 cubic feet to work with.
Every Pacifica comes equipped with adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, forward and reverse low-speed automatic braking, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The Safety Sphere Package for the L and Limited ($995) adds surround-view cameras and an automated parking system. This bundle is standard on the Pinnacle.
The Pacifica's standard infotainment system includes a 10.1-inch touchscreen, six speakers, three USB ports, satellite radio, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. A single-screen DVD player is available on the Touring for $995. Available on the Touring L, the Uconnect Theater Family Group ($4,395) includes a 13-speaker Alpine sound system, navigation, dual video screens, built-in Amazon Fire TV, an interior-view camera (FamCam), a Blu-Ray DVD player, a built-in vacuum cleaner, additional USB ports, and HDMI inputs.
The Alpine system, navigation, and vacuum are standard on the Limited, along with wireless phone charging. The remaining Uconnect Family Theater Group features are available on the Limited for $3,295 but with a 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. All of these items are standard on the Pinnacle.
The Touring offers a cloth interior with heated front seats, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, an eight-way power driver seat, hands-free power-sliding side doors, and a hands-free power liftgate. The exterior gets full LED exterior lighting, automatic wipers, roof rails, heated side mirrors with turn signals, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. The S Appearance Package ($1,495) adds dark 18-inch wheels and black trim inside and out.
The Touring L picks up leatherette upholstery, a 12-way power driver seat with memory, and a deluxe center control. Models equipped with the Uconnect Theater Family Group also have heated second-row seats and an eight-way power passenger seat. A panoramic sunroof can be added for $1,595, and the S Appearance Package remains available for $1,945.
In addition to its connectivity upgrades, the Limited provides a Nappa leather interior with ventilated front seats, a standard power passenger seat, and standard heated second-row seats. The panoramic sunroof is also included. The optional Trailer-Tow Group ($995) permits towing up to 3,600 pounds. The Limited is the last trim available with the S Appearance Package.
All comfort and convenience features available on the other trims are standard on the Pinnacle. The interior features quilted Nappa leather seats and throw pillows, plus a sueded headliner. Platinum chrome trim and 20-inch polished wheels distinguish the outside. Only the Trailer-Tow Group remains optional.
The 2023 Chrysler Pacifica clearly specializes in family-pleasing features. If you're willing to skip real leather seats, you can get most of them in the Touring L at an accessible price.
