2018 Chrysler Pacifica: The Natural Appeal


Chrysler has done a good work for their Pacifica and they are going to do more for the new 2018 Chrysler Pacifica. The Pacifica is a great example of how Chrysler manages to blur the fine line between a minivan and a crossover, while improving the performance and ability of the ride. Power will be enhanced. Style will be improved. Power will be strengthened. Comfort will be improved. It is highly possible that the new Pacifica will be coming with a hybrid type so auto enthusiasts should be ready for this upcoming ride.


The company has decided that they are going to make some updates and improvements for the new ride, completely changing the overall platform and structure. With the all new platform, they are hoping to improve the superior handle while reducing vibration, noise, and bumpiness. Naturally, a better suspension system will also be included in the line.

The new 2018 Chrysler Pacifica will be coming in various trims and models but you can expect such a powerful system like Active Noise Cancelation technology to become the standard feature in all of the models. The technology is designed to improve the refinement and comfort factors. Of course, it won’t be the only improved technology and system that you can find from Pacifica.


There are two types of engines that will be used in the new Pacifica. The first one is the V6 Pentastar 3.6 liter engine and the second one is the hybrid type. For the V6 engine, it will be paired with the auto nine speed transmission. It is predicted that the hybrid engine is able to reach 50 kilometers from its li-ion 16 kWh battery alone. For the hybrid engine, it is likely to be paired with the variable electric transmission. Further  details about the engine configuration and other technologies are still blurry but considering that this 2018 Chrysler Pacifica has been earning high rating in the 2016 Top Safety Pick, you can be sure that it comes with good safety control and features.

This 2018 Chrysler Pacifica will be coming with front wheel driving system. For the V6 engine, the predicted power is around 287 hp of power, while the hybrid may have 260 hp of power. But since it hasn’t been the solid configuration, the numbers can always change.

Pros and Cons

For the positive note, the power is pretty smooth with improved ergonomic feature and systems. For the rather negative aspect, this minivan is considered quite costly – well, if you consider it a minivan instead of a crossover. You have to admit, though, that the ride definitely has a fine lines and designs. It is sleek and elegant and yet not too much. It is probably hard to understand but this minivan is definitely sexy.

The exterior appeal is matched with the interior elegance and comfort. Features are added and enhanced and you can definitely enjoy the greater access and layout. So, are you ready for the new 2018 Chrysler Pacifica?
