This year, Chrysler pulled out all the stops to build one of the best minivans on the market. Of course, you could go with the base trim, but what do the others have to offer? This trim comparison can help you decide which Chrysler Pacifica offering you should purchase.
Choosing a Pacifica Trim
The 2024 Chrysler Pacifica is the top minivan on the market. While few minivans are on the market, this one is easily a top choice for families, offering excellent performance and plenty of features.
The 2024 Chrysler Pacifica Touring is the base trim and the least expensive option for the Chrysler Pacifica. It has a starting MSRP of $38,425 and comes with plenty of essential features. The car’s 3.6L V6 engine gets 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, which is better fuel economy than most minivans on the market.
The interior has cloth low-back bucket seats, a floor console with four cup holders, a Stow ‘n Go seating and storage system, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, tri-zone climate control and a USB port. This trim seats seven people max. The infotainment system features a 10.1-inch touchscreen with Amazon Alexa, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration. Bluetooth, HD radio and satellite radio are also standard.
The best thing about the Chrysler Pacifica Touring is the number of safety features included. Multiple airbags located around the cabin, including a driver and passenger inflatable knee-bolster airbag. A rear back-up camera with rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and rear cross traffic alert are standard. There are also sliding door alert warnings, rear occupant alert, and variable intermittent windshield wipers for the front and rear.
The 2024 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L is when you see some significant upgrades that aren’t available on the lower trims. Naturally, it has what the Pacifica Touring offers and more. You can expect the price for the Touring L to start at $42,085. Immediately, drivers will notice the synthetic leather-trimmed seats, and a larger front center console with covered storage – plus, a second-row storage system.
A number of packages are available at this trim level. This includes the Safety Sphere package with a surround-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, and hands-free park assist. Other options include a dual-pane panoramic sunroof and a Uconnect Theater system. The Road-Tripper package also returns this year, providing unique styling elements. It gives you a roof rack, all-season floor mats, and towing equipment, too.
The 2024 Chrysler Pacifica Limited starts at $49,355 and comes with everything the Pacifica Touring L includes – and more. Sitting down in the driver’s seat may seem even more comfortable with the inclusion of driver seat/side view mirror memory and premium Nappa leather-trimmed bucket seats.
The Limited gains a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, and a premium center console with wireless device charging. As for seating upgrades, you’ll get heated and ventilated front seats, and heated second-row seats.
The Stow ‘n Vac integrated vacuum is just one of the impressive features bundled in the UConnect Theater Family Group, priced at $3,545. This comprehensive package elevates your driving experience with third-row remote headrest dumping, hands-free sliding doors, a power-folding third-row seat, and second-row touchscreens.
Entertainment is taken to the next level with an integrated Blu-ray player. Audiophiles will especially appreciate the immersive 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system with a 760-watt amplifier. Connection options include an HDMI, USB and headphone ports, and a 115-volt auxiliary power outlet. Further, you’ll get Amazon Fire compatibility.
For those who require additional storage solutions, the Stow ‘n Place roof rack system is also available, making this family-friendly package a well-rounded and luxurious choice for the discerning driver.
For $53,985, the Chrysler Pacifica Pinnacle gives you everything. It features the premium 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system and upgraded quilted Nappa leather-trimmed seats with second-row lumbar pillows. A rear-seat entertainment system is also included, as well as a rear-seat camera system and a surround-view camera system. Lastly, the Pinnacle gives you 20-inch wheels – the largest wheels offered.
Hybrid versions are available as well. The plug-in hybrid trims feature a 16 kWh 360 V lithium-ion battery that provides up to 32 miles of range. With gas and electricity combined, you can get up to 550 miles in total. The Select trim starts at $53,230, while the Pinnacle with AWD starts at $61,960.
As for features, the Select is essentially the hybrid version of the Touring L, and the hybrid Pinnacle mirrors the features of its gas counterpart.
