Thanks to excellent safety features and versatility, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica continues to be one of the highest rated minivans on the market. Not including the available Pacifica Hybrid trims, the Chrysler Pacifica is available in six different trim levels and the top-dog trim is the Chrysler Pacifica Limited and it’s basically every soccer mom’s dream! …or tailgate enthusiast’s dream … or road tripper’s dream? Either way, its EPIC!

Mechanical Features

Even though the Chrysler Pacifica Limited is a minivan, it definitely has some pep in its step. Standard equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 VVT engine with ESS (Electric Stop-Start) and a 9-speed FWD automatic transmission plus an engine oil cooler, the Chrysler Pacifica Limited produces 287 horses and 262 lb-ft or torque. Furthermore, the Chrysler Pacifica Limited comes standard with a 220-amp alternator, electric power steering, electronic stability control and a maximum towing capacity of 3,600 pounds. Additional standard mechanical features for the Chrysler Pacifica Limited includes:

  • Anti-lock 4-wheel disc brakes
  • Electric park brake
  • Hill start assist
  • Rainy day braking
  • Smart brake   

Style

The Chrysler Pacifica Limited is fully loaded with top-of-the-line interior and exterior features. According to Car and Driver, the interior cabin of the Chrysler Pacifica Limited is airy, spacious, and packed with cubbies, cup holders, slide-out bins, and connectivity. One of the Pacifica Limited’s most coveted features is the second and third-row Stow ‘n Go storage and seating system. The Stow ‘n Go storage and seating system is an easy-to-use system that allows users to fold the vehicle’s second- and third-row seats into floor storage compartments when extra room is needed for large cargo. However, if the seats are in use and not folded into the floor, the floor storage compartments can be used to store items, which means there is more legroom for passengers.  

Additionally, the Pacifica Limited has eight passenger seating and second-row heated seats. Some of the standard interior convenience features in the Pacifica Limited include a 12-volt auxiliary plug, second row and third row USB ports, second and third row window shades and and the second-row has a tilt forward feature that makes it easier for third-row passengers to get into the third-row seats.

The Stow ‘n Vac Integrated Vacuum power by RIDGID is another incredibly convenient feature. A real crowd pleaser, the Chrysler Pacifica Limited’s Stow ‘n Vac is every soccer mom’s dream come true. Meant to withstand various weather conditions, the Stow ‘n Vac’s bag-less filtering system delivers an exceptional bin capacity – meaning, there’s plenty of space to collect dirt, sand, and all those dropped snacks. Located behind the third row, the Stow ‘n Vac offers a 11.4 foot hose (plus an extension hose and various attachments) with the ability to reach virtually every corner of the Pacifica’s interior cabin.    

Offered standard with chrome body side molding, variable intermittent windshield wipers, a black upper grille that coincides into the wraparound headlights and standard 18-inch x 7.5-inch aluminum polished wheels, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Limited is as sexy as any minivan has ever come close to. The Chrysler Pacifica Limited’s exterior style is tied together with the hands-free power sliding doors and hand-free power liftgate, bright door handles, chrome/body color exterior mirrors and front/rear LED lamps.

Additional exterior features include:

  • “Limited” Badge
  • Capless Fuel Filler
  • Chrome Accent Fog Lamp Bezels
  • Active Grille Shutters
  • Body-Color Sill Applique
  • Chrome Body Side Molding
  • High Intensity Discharge (HID) Headlamps
  • Chrome Stow n’ Place Roof Rack

Infotainment System

Designed to be the most modern minivan on the market, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Limited’s entertainment system includes rear seat entertainment system which is equipped with 10-inch touchscreens integrated into the seat backs of the front seats. Movies, games, and apps including “Are We There Yet?” are just some of the exceptional features included with the system entertainment – and it is ideal when traveling with kids during long road trips.

The front entertainment system is something out of minivan fairy tale – especially with the standard Uconnect 4C NAV 8.4-inch display. Standard infotainment system features include 1-year SiriusXM Guardian Service, Apple CarPlay and Google Android capable, integrated voice command with Bluetooth and steering wheel mounted audio controls. Furthermore, 13 Alpine speakers paired with a 506-watt amplifier are perfectly positioned throughout the interior cabin.

“For 35 years, our Chrysler minivans have led the segment we created, and that continues in 2018 with the Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid now adding 4G LTE Wi-Fi with unlimited data plans for $20 per month,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and Fiat, FCA – North America. “The Pacifica’s new, faster 4G LTE network speed creates an in-vehicle Wi-Fi Hotspot that keeps everyone in the family connected with up to eight mobile devices, making it easy to browse websites, check email and stream video. Passengers can also make the most of the class-exclusive Uconnect Theater system by utilizing the 4G hotspot to stream content via HDMI connected devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Chromecast or Apple TV.”
