The Chrysler Pacifica ignited the minivan segment with its extremely successful launch in the 2017 model year. Now it would be easy to rest on these laurels and get into the 2018 model year with a carryover, but that’s not how things are done at Chrysler. Instead, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica and 2018 Pacifica Hybrid will introduce a wide range of new advanced safety, technology, comfort and convenience systems that will make an incredibly impressive minivan even more capable, functional and family-friendly. Let’s go and take a look at all the new features of the Chrysler Pacifica 2018, while discovering what we can know about its release date.
Back in 2016, the car was introduced as a complete replacement for the old Town & Country. Unlike its predecessor, the Pacifica now has a more upscale interior and a more futuristic exterior. All this allowed him to sell nearly 65,000 units in his first year, which is quite good since it was launched quite late in the showrooms. In order to outperform some of its competitors, it seems that the update will bring some interesting changes. For beginners, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica will look like most of the time. In addition, its powertrain will probably remain identical to that of the current version. However, the interior of the van as well as some of the inserts inside will change. All this should allow him to be seen more as a premium van and less as a dull person carrier.
The majority of other changes involve new features, including the SafetyTec group, which adds rear parking assist and Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert to the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica standard equipment list. Other additions are model-specific – the Touring Plus trim is equipped with a remote starter and safety alarm as standard, the Touring L marks a new premium group with a 13-speaker audio system, a electric passenger seat and perforated leather seats. L Plus receives a standard Uconnect infotainment and navigation system with an 8.4-inch screen and panoramic sunroof and optional 20-speaker audio system.
Technologically, Pacifica benefits from the latest generation of Uconnect available with a touch screen of 7 or 8.4 inches. The high-end Uconnect system, standard on Touring L Plus and more, adds a 4G Wi-Fi connection to the minivan. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity is standard across the range.
In the engine of the new 2018 Chrysler Pacifica will locate a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 petrol engine. This will have the ability to create approximately 287 drive with a torque of 342 Nm. This engine will be associated with a 9-speed programmed transmission.
The van will have a speed increasing from 0 to 60 mph in 8 seconds, with a top speed of 110 mph. This model will highlight a half and a half shape of the engine. It will be equipped with a 16 kWh electric motor and a lithium-particle battery arrangement. This model with a single charge will have the ability to travel about 30 miles.
2018 Chrysler Pacifica models in the price of $ 28,535 for a basic cut L to almost $ 50,000 for a Limited-style model entirely optional, range-topping. All regular Pacificas (a hybrid model is also offered and listed separately) are front-wheel drive and equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission.
We would pass the L, LX and Touring Plus versions and head straight for the Touring L with its leather seats that are easier to clean (after all, they are family dumpers). The Touring L is based on Touring Plus upgrades (power sliding doors, fog lamps, automatic headlamps, electric tailgate, heated exterior mirrors, 3-zone automatic climate control, satellite radio, and keyless entry with push-button start). roof rack, rain wipers, second- and third-row sun visors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated front seats. The Touring L also provides access to a number of optional safety features not available on the bottom gaskets.
