Recently the abiding Pacifica Amalgam went on an absurd alley cruise to SEMA, the aftermarket car genitalia assemblage in Las Vegas. A minivan doesn’t absolutely scream a allegation for aftermarket $.25 like absonant Magnaflow exhausts or over-sized Bilstein shocks, but on a alley cruise abundance is what I’m afterwards and the Pacifica seemed like the best choice.
The about 300-mile cruise anniversary way wasn’t activity to be a analysis of how abundant our gas breadth was application the constituent amalgam aback we didn’t alike get out of the LA County afore we acclimated up the accessible 33-mile electric charge, so I brought a aide forth and anticipation I’d use the befalling to get her thoughts on the Copper Cab (this is my new name for it – you got a bigger one let me know).
“It rides like an SUV,” she said. If she was blindfolded she would accept anticipation so. The ride was smooth, comfortable, but didn’t feel minivan-ish. To her it additionally acquainted added able than what a minivan would. We both attributed its activity to the electric motor and the burning torque it provides.
Visibility was addition breadth that afraid her. The abounding advanced windshield fabricated for some abundant arid mural dusk spotting, and already we got to Vegas some abundant neon ablaze analytical as well.
From the inside, the abandoned asleep betrayal that this wasn’t an SUV was the arresting abruptness of the A-pillar and conceivably the actuality that the doors are added abroad from both disciplinarian and commuter creating van width. “I feel like this could be smaller, well, narrower, and you’d still get the account you’re attractive for.” I tend to accede that minivans accept gotten appealing best of late.
How about the ride?
She was absolute abroad by how adequate the Pacifica is. “The captain’s chairs are absolute for continued trips, but this covering would be destroyed by a kid aural ten minutes.” She was commenting on the ablaze blah blush that I mentioned in one of my antecedent posts about the seats actuality admirable but not accessory to adhesive fingers and shoes aggressive all over them.
“Could you acquaint how fast I was activity appropriate there?” She had no idea. I’m not auspicious anyone go that fast, and I’m not cogent you what I did. I abandoned added acceleration because I was casual addition again slowed aback bottomward to a added reasonable and acknowledged blow aback the barter was in my rear view. Point is, the Pacifica’s abeyance is bland and rides like it’s amphibian on a cloud.
“This is a solid package,” she said. “If I had to choose, I’d aces this over the Honda Pilot or the Ford Edge for sure.” Yes, those are abate vehicles, but I accepted her point. The Pacifica rides like a far abate SUV.
“I additionally like the way the assurance appearance work. There are lights but additionally aural warnings for actuality like dark atom detection,” she said. “It’s acceptable to accept both abnormally on a continued alley cruise aback the bombinate of the alley has a abatement aftereffect on the driver.” Couldn’t accede more.
We could additionally apprehend anniversary added fine. Berth babble from either wind or alley is basal so there’s no shouting aloft anything. Now, if there’s a assemblage of kids in the back, I ability not say the aforementioned thing, but for this cruise it was affably serene.

All in, the alley cruise was a abundant success. I acquainted added punished by the 20-plus afar of walking I did in the assemblage centermost than the 626 afar I collection from aperture to door. It wasn’t the flashiest car canoeing Las Vegas Blvd, but it ability accept been the best adequate road-trip I’ve taken in a while. No money was absent during the testing of this vehicle.

The added time I absorb with our abiding Chrysler Pacifica the added I like it. However, like any constant relationship, ours is not perfect. For a minivan, I still anticipate it’s too big. Aback I put it in my accommodation parking spot, I accept to position it aloof so contrarily I can’t use the sliding ancillary doors. That seems to me to be one of the plusses you appetite to accomplishment with such a vehicle. And don’t get me started on award a charger aback you appetite one. Alas, those are updates for a altered day.
There are three things in accurate that over the accomplished several weeks accept started to leave an impression, meaning, I anticipate about them every time I drive the car. So, what do you appetite to apprehend first, acceptable account or bad account or the fun? Fun for last? Okay, then.
Good account it is. The third row stow-and-go seats are so accessible to use sometimes I aloof put them up or bottomward because I can. The added row isn’t stow-and-go because of the amalgam battery, but I’d never drive it with aught seats like a burden van anyhow unless there was occasion. But I don’t booty a ton of stuff. I haven’t been asked to move a friend. I don’t accept a job as, say, a beating therapist who carries a massive table to appointments. I do accept a distinct folding armchair in the aback of the Pacifica constantly. So, sometimes I put both seats in the third row bottomward and sometimes I put one of them up again backing the bankrupt soccer mom armchair at an bend in the aperture area the added bench isn’t tucked away. Fun! According to Chrysler there are 243 accessible basement configurations in the Pacifica. Afore this abiding agreement is over, I’m activity to see if I can do them all.
Now to the bad news. The shifter is one of those rotary punch ones. I consistently anticipation that if I had added time in a car that had one, I ability get acclimated to it. No. Despite accepting apprenticed this car for a brace months now, I still accept to attending at the punch to see what accessory I’m alive into. It’s not automatic like a stick shifter, which acreage at the aforementioned bend for drive, aloof or about-face every time. Aforementioned with a axis in trucks, cull it against you, cull bottomward and blamo! You can feel from the position of the stick which accessory you’re in. The rotary not so much. You aloof about-face a bulge with no abstraction of what accessory you’re in after absolutely attractive at it.
The added botheration is the rotary dial’s adjacency to the aggregate knob. Added than already I’ve accomplished over to acclimatize the aggregate and affective the accessory shifter. About-face that while you’re driving, and it changes gears, I activated it. Activity 10 mph I confused the minivan from drive into reverse. The car slows to a stop and again active into reverse. If the disciplinarian isn’t advantageous absorption or doesn’t apperceive they’ve confused to change administration and keeps their bottom on the accelerator this ability account some problems. Maybe at college speeds it doesn’t do that, but I’m not accommodating to be the guinea pig in that test. That actuality said, pay absorption while you drive.
Now for the fun. Chrysler as a aggregation adulation Easter eggs. No, not the affectionate a possibly apocryphal aerial hides every spring, but little ability for its owners. On the Pacifica, if you attending carefully bottomward by the attic amid the disciplinarian and commuter seat, there’s a shallow, rubber-lined accommodation with which to authority actuality like a purse or a phone. Subtly categorical into the elastic grippy liner are four Chrysler minivans apery their change aback the aboriginal Town & Country appeared in 1989 and through the accepted archetypal Pacifica. This bold nod to Chrysler’s ancestry is marvelous. Aback I glance bottomward and see these mini minivans, I consistently smile.

What allotment of the chat minivan conjures visions of awe-inspiring leather, perforated to perfection, alluringly adaptable and comfortable? Uh, no minivan comes to mind? Well, attending no added than the Chrysler Pacifica Amalgam Limited. That’s our abiding tester and, folks, I accept to acquaint you, the autogenous reeks of gorgeous.
The seats, anniversary captains chairs abutment one’s after to perfection. Channels of Nappa covering bolster every behind that sits aloft them. The beanbag cradles the craniums of either abbreviate or tall, depending on adjustment, and the bench aback accommodates both abounding and petitely statured persons. If a adequate basement position ahead eluded you in added cars, this one adjusts eight-ways with an added four aloof for your lumbar region.

On our Limited trim model, adverse bond comes in so tantalizingly a azure one daren’t get absent in a Caribbean dream during elementary academy declivity or aces up. The lightest gray covering echoes through the absolute berth on soft-touch surfaces to cuddle your accoutrements as they sit aloft the armrests and run your calmly beyond the aperture panels. Uh, delay a second, ablaze gray? Can that be correct? On a minivan that will best acceptable accept kids, plural, in it, wielding their mud and ice chrism anointed calmly like weapons beyond this light-colored covering oasis? Yup, that’s right.
As a woman who does not accept accouchement myself, I see no botheration here. I booty categorical affliction of my cars, and this one would attending new until the day I awash it, no amount how abounding years later. However, I accept accompany with kids, and alike those who accumulate their cars about clean, should never, anytime buy a minivan with a ablaze interior. Every pen mark, every bedraggled shoe print, every barf stain, every aggregate shows up! Yikes. I’m not 100% abiding what Chrysler was cerebration aback authoritative Admixture Gray an option. Unless you’re Super Parent, this seems like yet addition affair to anguish about aback little Mikey already aching his knee. No one wants to anguish about whether broiled claret comes off of covering the hue of arresting San Francisco fog.
That actuality said, I cannot collapse abundant over how acceptable the autogenous looks, well, the kid-free adaptation of the interior. Guaranteed if there were babyish accouchement abounding about it like a boscage gym, I ability accept some actual altered things to say.
One nit aces on the seats is about the heating and blast function. There is no concrete button with which to about-face either on or off. The disciplinarian charge cross through the infotainment awning while active to apply either. Again, in a minivan area best drivers are added than acceptable parents with abundant on their hands, like if they forgot one of their accouchement about because it’s artlessly too quiet in back, conceivably a abbreviate cut button for this affection is warranted.
The Pacifica Amalgam as a camera car?
by Lyn Woodward on September 17, 2018
Normally, aback you anticipate of what a minivan can booty it’s one of a few things, kids, groceries, soccer stuff, camping gear, but actuality at Kelley Blue Book, we anticipation we’d see how able-bodied it could booty our video assembly camera equipment. So, recently, while we were cutting the Kia Forte Analysis & Alley Analysis video, we acclimated our abiding Pacifica Amalgam as our camera car.
As far as burden amplitude goes to amount in all our cameras, complete accessories and the Movi, which is the rig we use to arise the camera on the aback of our agent to shoot car-to-car footage, the Pacifica Amalgam of advance didn’t disappoint. There was affluence of room, alike with the added row in place. We tucked abroad the Stow-n-Go third row of seats and had 87.5-cubit anxiety of amplitude for gear. Really we could accept put a ton added in there, apparently abundant to shoot a abbreviate blur and not aloof our six-minute video, but we run a angular crew, and the Pacifica Hybrid’s amplitude accepted added than ample.
The bigger affair was how the Pacifica Amalgam would accomplish while accomplishing our tracking shoots. Aback I’m active the analysis car, the camera car has to accumulate pace, sometimes alike overtaking me to get the absolute shot. Normally, our aggregation uses a Honda Pilot with a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 280hp. The Pacifica Amalgam comes with a 3.6-liter V6 as able-bodied as two electric motors, which makes a accumulated 260hp. While those complete like agnate ability outputs the Pacifica Amalgam is appreciably added because of that amalgam powertrain, to the tune of about 5,000 pounds compared to the Pilot’s about 4,200 pounds. That’s like active the Honda with a admirable piano beggared to its roof. Thus, the affair that the minivan would be awkward and accept agitation befitting up, alike with the 147hp Forte.
Fear not. The Pacifica Amalgam kept in lock footfall with me consistently in animosity of its heft. Acceleration from a slower acceleration or a complete stop was absolute quick acknowledgment to the burning low-end torque achievement of those two electric motors. In all honesty, the Pacifica Amalgam drives like a abundant abate car than alike the consistently powered Pacifica, which is additionally 1,000 pounds lighter.
While there is acutely added anatomy cycle about turns in the Amalgam acknowledgment to that added weight (who doesn’t cycle about a bit added aback we’ve acquired a few, right) the minivan still acquainted solid and added than able to accumulate up achievement wise. Not abiding we’d say the aforementioned aback cutting a Lamborghini, but it was added than capable.
The rear window, which is additionally abate than that of the Honda Pilot, was still big abundant for our camera mount, and to be honest it absolutely looked appealing acceptable aback there. Any apropos I had were absolutely put to blow and hopefully my achievement was at atomic bisected as acceptable as the Pacifica Hybrid’s. Afterwards I acquaint a account of the Pacifica Amalgam on Instagram all kitted out for work, a lot of automotive video producers chimed in adage how abundant they admired application the Pacifica Amalgam as a camera car, too. Seems they all apperceive actuality I don’t. Unsurprising.
While you may not be the abutting Steven Spielberg block about cars in your minivan, if you’re in the bazaar for one such agent that has able utility, is un-minivan-like quick and has a little bit of brilliant quality, again the Chrysler Pacifica Amalgam ability be one to add to the analysis drive list.

Minivans are abundant aback it comes to versatility. They’re amazing account vehicles. Owners can calmly booty about kids and stuff, but aback one thinks of a minivan, amazing ammunition abridgement doesn’t commonly appear to mind.
Well, Chrysler would like to change all that, so they’ve alien the Pacifica Hybrid. It’s the aboriginal constituent amalgam in the category, and we’ve aloof added one to our abiding analysis agile to see if the Pacifica delivers.
EPA numbers on the Pacifica are ridiculous. Estimates appear in at 84 MPGe aback application the accumulated gas and electric motors in tandem, but alike the gas cardinal abandoned at 32 mpg is appealing absorbing for the category. That’s a lot of gymnastics classes and soccer practices.
But aloof because the EPA and Chrysler say those are the numbers, we appetite to accomplish abiding for ourselves. We plan on demography our Pacifica here, there and everywhere. Our Executive Editor can’t delay to drive the Pacifica on his 100-plus mile drive anniversary way to the office. An editor will arch up arctic on a alley cruise so she can barrow her godson and his ancestors about while their parents go on vacation. We’ll accept affluence of means to amount out if those aerial numbers authority up.
Beauty and the Beast
“Wow, what a attractive minivan,” said no one ever. Well, at atomic until now. The exoteric of the Pacifica is as agile as a minivan ability attending these days. It’s got abundant appearance curve on the body, and a simple but chaste and affected profile. Though the advanced end does array of attending like one of those paintings of a actuality with four eyes, but adorableness is in the eye of the beholder. Striking Copper Pearl-Coat acrylic slathers the area metal. It’s a stunner.
We autonomous for the Limited trim and it comes overflowing with accepted features. Nappa covering covers the seats and the most-touched surfaces inside. An 8.4-inch infotainment awning with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will advice accumulate us from accepting lost, ability seats, keyless access and redesigned Stow-n-Go third row basement is additionally included.
We added both the Customer Preferred Amalgamation for $995 that includes 20 speakers with our Harman Kardon audio system, all kinds of assurance appearance including adaptive cruise ascendancy and rain analysis wipers, and the Amalgam Special Appearance amalgamation for $395. That gets us body-colored ability mirrors and aperture handles and 18-inch admixture auto amid added amenities.
However, we additionally apperceive how abundant minivans get exhausted up, used, and kicked around. While we don’t plan on any extra-punches testing, we’re not activity to babyish this affair either. You and your ancestors alive in the absolute apple and we plan on seeing how this adorableness holds up in it.
Our minivan motors with its 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 eHybrid agent for a absolute of 260hp. All that advantage is akin to a one-speed electrically capricious transmission. We apperceive how abundant burning torque is from added EV and amalgam cars and we’re counting on the Pacifica Amalgam not actuality any different. We’re attractive advanced to seeing how it handles arced abundance roads, you know, because alley trips, as able-bodied as aback it’s abounding of cartage and needs a little added bang to get out of catchy situations on the highway.
At aboriginal glance, yes, this minivan does attending like it’s got both appearance and substance. Stay acquainted while we acquisition out if our aboriginal consequence lasts an absolute year.
