2020 Chrysler Pacifica Style

The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica handles well and its standard AWD gives off-road ability as well, though only the turbo model offers spirited performance.

The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica is an excellent example of the modern breed of minivan. As you’d probably expect, the 2020 Pacifica has plenty of space for you and your family. It comes standard with seating for seven passengers (an optional second-row bench increases seating to eight) and has enough room in back for some luggage, too. The Pacifica also has a full complement of safety features and a classy design both inside and out.

The Chrysler is a bit behind class leaders when it comes to cargo space, but that’s mostly by the numbers. Real-world storage is still very useful. One of the things that make the Pacifica so versatile is its patented Stow ‘n Go seats. The second and third row can fold quickly into the floor of the Pacifica, freeing up all sorts of cargo space in the back. And when you aren’t stowing the seats, there’s significant underseat storage. We like the Pacifica’s capable acceleration and handling, and when you get the optional towing package, it can tow up to 3,600 pounds.

Despite its virtues, the Pacifica does have competition. The freshly redesigned 2020 Honda Odyssey is an excellent vehicle with lots of seating tricks of its own. The Kia Sedona, meanwhile, is a more reasonably priced alternative for budget-conscious buyers. But no matter the competitor, the Pacifica is still an attractive minivan.

The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica comes in six main trim levels: LLXTouring PlusTouring LTouring L Plusand Limited. The naming can be a little confusing but, as expected, the more expensive the trim level, the more standard features you get. There’s also a Pacific Hybrid, which is reviewed separately.

Every Pacifica gets the same engine: a 3.6-liter V6 (287 horsepower, 262 pound-feet of torque) that sends power to the front wheels via a nine-speed automatic transmission. Seven-passenger seating is standard across the board, and eight-passenger seating is optional on all but the L model.

Tri-zone climate control is available at an additional cost.

The Pacifica LX is equipped with alloy wheels, automatic headlights, body-colored exterior trim, a driver information display, an automatic engine stop-start system, an eight-way power driver seat (with four-way lumbar), tri-zone climate control and folding/collapsible second-row Stow ‘n Go seats.

Stepping up to the Touring Plus adds foglights, LED taillights, chrome exterior trim, full keyless entry, remote engine start, power-sliding rear doors, a power liftgate, automatic climate control, satellite radio and a charge-only USB port located in the front row. The 18-inch wheels can be ordered separately.

The next level up is the Touring L. Its standard features include an eight-way power passenger seat with power lumbar adjustment, heated front seats, leather upholstery, and second- and third-row retractable sunshades.

There are several packages available for the Touring L. The Premium Audio package adds a 13-speaker audio system and an 8.4-inch touchscreen with HD radio and two USB ports. The Advanced SafetyTecpackage (available on the Touring Plus and up) bundles automatic high-beam control, front parking sensors, a sound-reducing windshield, automatic wipers, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, an automated parking system, a top-down parking camera and a larger driver information display.

The upgraded driver info display and sound-reducing windshield are included with the Touring L Plus, along with a heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, a third-row USB port, ambient lighting, the 8.4-inch touchscreen, navigation and the Alpine audio system.

All Touring models can be further equipped with 18-inch wheels.

The top-dog Limited comes with 18-inch wheels, xenon headlamps, LED foglights, auto-dimming exterior and rearview mirrors, power-folding mirrors, driver-seat memory settings, two sunroofs (panoramic for the first two rows and an additional fixed sunroof above the third row), ventilated front seats, premium leather upholstery, the hands-free liftgate and hands-free sliding doors, an in-vehicle vacuum cleaner, a second-row USB port and a power-folding third-row seat.

As loaded as it is, even the Limited can be bolstered with additional features. Available options include the Advanced SafetyTec package, a 20-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, an upgraded rear entertainment system with dual 10-inch seatback touchscreens, an HDMI input and a household-style power outlet. Twenty-inch wheels are sold as a stand-alone option.

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Chrysler Pacifica Limited (3.6L V6 | 9-speed automatic | FWD).

NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2017, the current Pacifica has received some revisions, including standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year’s Pacifica.


By minivan standards, the Pacifica performs well. It handles better than average, with effective brakes and strong acceleration. It would get a better overall performance score if it weren’t for the frustrating nine-speed transmission and vague steering.


There’s a lot of comfort to be had in the Pacifica, but the seating position in the second and the third row can be a bit tight. The overly firm seat bolsters hurt the comfort score a bit, too. The ride, however, is smooth and calm.


Whether you’re making the daily commute or spending a long weekend on the highway, the inside of the Pacifica is a pleasant place to be. If you’re judging it strictly by the numbers, the Pacifica is marginally smaller than rivals, but it feels just as spacious as class leaders.

The best value in 2020 Chrysler Pacifica is a base model with manual gearbox, but it’s still decently priced after adding fancy audio, leather, and a moonroof.
