The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica proved that minivans are still wanted in America. This family hauler will come with the same design and specifications this year, which is a fantastic thing because it will keep all of the stuff that earned him the Best Car to Buy last year. Minivans are not the most exotic cars that you can get, but they are extremely functional and let’s check out why the Pacifica is the best in the class.
2019 Chrysler Pacifica Redesign
Minivans are not famous for their design, but the Pacifica looks quite handsome. There is a Batman-resembling logo at the front, which is aggressive for this type of vehicle.

The body of the car is smoothly shaped and the sliding door tracks are concealed beneath the rear window, which gives the car a smooth and clear profile. Thanks to several tricks, the new Pacifica actually appears smaller than it is.
Under the hood of the 2019 Pacifica, you will find a 3.6-liter V6 engine which is lighter and more efficient than before. The unit delivers 287 horsepower that are sent to the front wheels, resulting in strong acceleration.
The powerplant is connected with a 9-speed automatic transmission, which is much more responsive here than in other FCA vehicles.
The driver might not be able to control the gears directly but, there is an “L” position in the rotary control dial, which will help you in low-speed cornering. The handling is as good as it gets on a minivan and the new minivan can compete against a much stronger category with these features.
The Pacifica has the 121.6-inch wheelbase and it is 79.6-inch wide, which doesn’t seem a lot when you put it like that, but there is a lot of room once you step inside the car and every inch is well-used. If you fold the second and third row of seats, you will get 140.5 cubic feet of space for your cargo. Due to plentiful glass, the passengers have a wide-open view, no matter whether they sit at the front or in the back.
In the second row of seats, the passengers will have to deal with Stow’n’Go, Chrysler’s fold-away system, which does reduce the comfort slightly, but it adds utility, so it is all fine. As for the third bench, it is quite supportive and spacious enough even for adults.
Considering that the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica remains the same as before, we expect the same safety features to be found. That means that you will get things like blind-spot monitoring and rear-parking sensor with the standard equipment. Moreover, you will be able to find forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, a surround-view camera system and adaptive cruise control.
What you should know is that the Pacifica is going on sale in several different trims. The L model is the base one and it is followed by LX, Touring Plus and Touring-L. The top two trims are Touring-L Plus and Limited.
The entry-level vehicle comes with a 7.0-inch display compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and it has some other features as well. For those who want extra luxury and comfort, Limited model is the right choice as it comes with equipment such as panoramic sunroof, 18-inch wheels, cooled front seats, Blu-ray entertainment, and so much more.
The starting price of the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica is $26,995 but it can go up to $45,000, depending on the trim and the equipment the car brings. One thing is for sure. The Pacifica is the minivan you will replace hardly because it gives you everything you are looking for on a car. And unlike the other vehicles in this segment, driving it is quite enjoyable.
