The Pacifica arrives to reclaim Chrysler’s minivan throne—and a 2018 10Best award. As a family hauler, safety is key: there are more than 100 standard and available features including a surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, and forward-collision alert. Stow ’n Go seats are standard; the top model has a built-in vacuum. There’s a 287-hp V-6 with a nine-speed automatic—we saw 31 mpg in our highway testing—and a plug-in hybrid (a minivan exclusive) with an EPA-rated 84 MPGe combined.
Only America’s most ardent pragmatists choose minivan function over crossover fashion. The country’s refusal to acknowledge the family van’s myriad virtues—unparalleled people-carrying comfort, unmatched interior volume, and unequaled interior flexibility—might be its greatest automotive sin. Stigma, then, is strong with the guardian of the sliding door.
Starting with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 found in the standard Pacifica, FCA engineers swapped the pistons, camshafts, and valves; bumped the compression ratio; and added Atkinson-cycle capability to maximize efficiency. Then they bolted the gas mill to a continuously variable planetary-gear transmission that houses two electric motor/generators. Add-on electron propulsion never comes without compromise, however, and the Pacifica hybrid suffers the loss of the underfloor bins where the second-row seats normally stow. That space instead harbors a 16.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that fully charges in two hours on a 240-volt, 30-amp circuit or in just over 14 hours using a 120-volt wall plug.
The upshot is a relatively long electric-only range, which we measured at 30 miles in 30-degree weather. (Chrysler claims 33 miles using the EPA’s methodology.)
But there is technically no all-electric mode, or any other selectable mode, for that matter. Chrysler says that minivan customers don’t want to have to think about maximum efficiency, so the company sets the powertrain parameters and that’s that.
