2024 Chrysler Pacifica Changes
There are no significant changes to Chrysler’s Pacifica minivan for the 2024 model year. It remains available in either gas or plug-in hybrid guises, with a variety of different trim levels depending on which powertrain you choose.
Choosing Your 2024 Chrysler Pacifica
It’s best to think of the Pacifica as two model ranges since there’s little crossover between the gas and PHEV models. Prices start at $40,020 for a front-drive gas-powered Touring model, rising to $59,605 for the flagship AWD Pacifica. This is the only trim shared between the four-model gas range and the five PHEV variants, which range from $54,090 to $62,820.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Engine Options
The 2024 Chrysler Pacifica engine range starts with the venerable 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 gas engine, which produces 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. This is supplied to either the front or all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission; all-wheel drive is a $2,995 upgrade on all trims bar entry-level Touring.
Performance actually drops in the plug-in hybrid, which outputs 260 hp, and no torque figures were quoted at the time of writing.

2024 Chrysler Pacifica Fuel Economy
Figures have yet to be published regarding the 2024 Chrysler Pacifica fuel economy. We do know that last year’s mechanically identical FWD models returned an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon city, 28 mpg highway, and 22 combined, while gas mileage dropped further to 17/25/20 mpg in AWD models.
Needless to say, plug-in hybrids performed far better, recording 82 MPGe in gas and electric guise.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Towing Capacity
When equipped with the Trailer Tow Group package (available on Limited and Pinnacle gas models), the Pacifica can pull up to 3,600 pounds. The hybrid is not listed with a towing capacity.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Dimensions & Cargo Capacity
2024 Chrysler Pacifica dimensions extend to 204 inches in length and almost 80 inches in width. This translates to 165 cu ft of interior passenger space, and 36 inches of legroom even for third-row occupants. 2024 Chrysler Pacifica cargo space stands at 32.3 cu ft with all the seats in place and 140.5 cu ft maximum cargo capacity.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Safety
Regardless of trim level, every Pacifica comes with side, curtain, and knee airbags, adaptive cruise control, and rear park assistance with self-stopping, hill start assistance, and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic detection. There’s automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, and automatic headlamps with auto high beams.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Technology
Standard fare in the Pacifica is a 10.1-inch touchscreen running the ubiquitous Uconnect 5 interface, with smartphone mirroring and satellite radio. The rather basic six-speaker stereo can be upgraded on Limited (gas) models to a 13-speaker Alpine audio system combined with navigation, while Pinnacle models provide a 19 or 20-speaker Harman Kardon system (depending on powertrain) with a ten-inch subwoofer. Pinnacle models also offer Amazon Fire TV, and an interior cabin camera comes as standard.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Trims & Prices
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Touring – MSRP from $40,020Build & Price >
The most affordable Pacifica is still generously equipped, featuring heated front seats with power adjustment and lumbar for the driver, three-zone air conditioning, a heated steering wheel, and power for the sliding side doors and liftgate.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L – MSRP from $43,680Build & Price >
The first Pacifica gas model with optional all-wheel drive, Touring L models feature Caprice leatherette seating and an upgraded center console.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Limited – MSRP from $50,950Build & Price >
The substantial price hike for Limited models is justified in part by the introduction of Nappa leather seating, with heating and ventilation in the front and heating elements across the second row, all illuminated by a dual-pane panoramic sunroof. A split-level center console includes wireless smartphone charging, while navigation and a 13-speaker Alpine audio system are other notable improvements.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Pinnacle – MSRP from $56,805Build & Price >
Riding on 20-inch polished wheels, Pinnacle models feature quilted Nappa leather seating, most notably across the second-row captain’s chairs with removable lumbar support pillows. A 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system is standard, alongside Amazon Fire TV and a cabin camera.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid Select – MSRP from $54,285Build & Price >
This is effectively equal to Touring L in terms of specifications but features a different powertrain and additionally benefits from navigation.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid Road Tripper – MSRP from $56,585Build & Price >
Key upgrades on Road Tripper hybrids over Select include a 360-degree surround-view camera, larger 18-inch aluminum wheels, and granite crystal detailing extending from door handles to the front and rear fascias.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid S Appearance – MSRP from $56,785Build & Price >
The only differences between this and Road Tripper models are S-themed badging and decals across the exterior and cabin.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid Premium S Appearance – MSRP from $60,085Build & Price >
You don’t have to look far to notice Premium’s panoramic glass sunroof, wireless device charging, and 13-speaker Alpine sound system with its 506W amplifier. You’d be less likely to notice the automatic power-folding mirrors which adjust when reverse is selected, while the Nappa leather seats are ventilated up front.
Some Pacifica models might as well not exist – in particular the S Appearance hybrid – but Limited and Premium do a good job of bringing comfort and refinement to gas and PHEV buyers respectively, without the elevated pricing of Pinnacle models.
