Engines and Drivetrains

The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica provides aspiring owners with the choice of two unique powertrains: a segment-first hybrid vehicle offering 82 MPGe in the city, due to an innovative dual-motor eFlite® electrically variable transmission (EVT), and a next-generation variant of the iconic 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6, paired with a segment-exclusive TorqueFlite® nine-speed automatic transmission for a formidable 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet.

Both the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna offer a 3.5-liter V6 engine, with the former exerting 280 horsepower and the latter producing 296 horsepower. However, while the Toyota Sienna produces marginally greater horsepower specifications, its eight-speed automatic transmission reaches an uninspiring 22 combined miles per gallon in fuel efficiency. The Kia Sedona lags significantly behind the pack, producing 276 horsepower from its lean 3.3-liter engine, and reaching a combined fuel efficiency of only 20 miles per gallon.

Between the optional hybrid powertrain and the marginally larger displacement engine, the Chrysler Pacifica surges ahead of the competition with an ideal culmination of efficiency, power and composure. Due to the larger displacement, peak horsepower and torque specifications are reached sooner than leaner, smaller engines with similar specifications - ultimately maximizing fuel efficiency by remaining at lower RPMs.

Interior Convenience and Technology Features

The latest iteration of the Chrysler Pacifica includes a variety of advanced and innovative features such as:

  • Standard active noise cancelling
  • Available 13-speaker Premium Alpine sound system, or 20-speaker Harman Kardon sound system
  • Uconnect® 4 with an accompanying 7-inch or 8.4-inch touchscreen
  • Stow 'n Vac integrated vacuum
  • Over 100 standard and advanced safety and security features
  • An all-new S Appearance Package
With an extensive array of additional features amending those listed above, the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica matches or exceeds the various features found within the competition.

* The advertised price does not include sales tax, vehicle registration fees, other fees required by law, finance charges and any documentation charges. A negotiable administration fee, up to $115, may be added to the price of the vehicle.

* Images, prices, and options shown, including vehicle color, trim, options, pricing and other specifications are subject to availability, incentive offerings, current pricing and credit worthiness.

While the Honda Odyssey features a similar integrated vacuum system, the Toyota Sienna offers a 7-inch touchscreen, and the Kia Sedona offers similar safety systems accompanied by a rear-camera display, none of the three manage to surpass the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica in its sheer quantity of interior amenities and advanced technological features.

The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica: Uniquely Equipped and Steadfast

When seeking a minivan equipped for everything from running errands and carpooling to attending sports practices, the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica stands apart from the competition. While the Honda Odyssey boasts an array of unique interior features and a hybrid model variant of its own, its less stylish design and limited interior technological amenities ultimately fails to surpass the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica. The Toyota Sienna, despite its moderately more formidable powertrain, suffers from an uninspired interior design and limited quantity of features and amenities - alongside its lack of a hybrid powertrain. Lastly, the Kia Sedona falls unfortunately flat (even when compared to the other competitors) in virtually every category.

Ultimately, the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica stands as the ideal model for drivers throughout Harrisburg, Newport, and beyond.
