2019 Chrysler Pacifica vs. 2018 Chrysler Pacifica in Edmonton, AB
Standing on the shores of the automotive world, the Chrysler Pacifica is in a class of its own. The Pacifica reimagines the minivan, by taking cues from other SUVs and crossovers. The Pacifica made waves, debuting in 2017—adding some much-needed spunk to the modern minivan market. But how far has the Pacifica come since then? Here at Southtown Chrysler, your go-to Edmonton Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, and Jeep dealer, we’ve put the 2019 and 2018 Pacificas head-to-head, in a quest of minivan domination to see which model year takes the crown.
For 2019, the Pacifica is still the same Pacifica drivers loved on the outside. There are no design updates for 2019, however, two stunning colours were added to the 2019 model—Maximum Steel Metallic and Luxury White Pearl for those who are looking to outfit their Pacificas with classy neutral colours. 2019’s Pacifica dropped the Copper Pearl option, so if you’re looking to get behind the wheel of a bronze bullet, browse the 2018 models. 2019 also saw the availability of the “S Appearance Package,” spread to every single trim of Pacifica hybrid. For under a grand, drivers can treat themselves to upgraded seats, tires, 18×7.5-inch Black Noise aluminum wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, “S” badging throughout the vehicle, and much more.
Standard on both the 2019 and 2018 Pacifica is a more than capable 3.6-litre Pentastar™ VVT V6. “Canada’s best selling engine” is good for 287 horses and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. The Pentastar™ V6 works to haul up 1,633 kg in the Pacifica, good for a best-in-class towing rating in back to back years. If that wasn’t enough, the Pacifica’s V6 also delivers unbelievable highway engine economy—8.4L/100km. For an even greener option, you can opt for either a 2019 or 2018 Pacifica hybrid. Though the price tag is steeper, the Pacifica hybrid owns this distinction of “Canada’s only hybrid minivan”. Not to mention, the hybrid Pentastar V6 with 360V battery delivers, going 51km on a single charge! You’ll be waving goodbye to weekly stops at the pump.
With a variety of trim levels available across the Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid, and even more optional minor features available for 2019 models, we’ve decided that both 2019 and 2018 are amazing choices! With the Pacifica you’re getting a modern minivan with crossover appeal. You’ll never be short on room with space up to 8 passengers, and thanks to the utility of 2nd-row stow and go seating, you’ll have room to pack anything with you on the roads ahead. And if that wasn’t enough, both the 2019 and 2018 Pacifica models come standard with a Uconnect 7-inch Uconnect® touchscreen with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.
