The Pacifica takes a special place among minivans. Introduced a few years ago, it is still one of the freshest models in the class. This clearly indicates that the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica most likely won’t feature bigger changes. This minivan has many strong points, including efficient and economical engines, spacious and well-equipped cabin. Expect no bigger novelties for the next year. Eventually, we could see new exterior colors and a few more standard features. Expect to see it late in the next year.
- Great fuel economy
- Lots of standard equipment
- Upscale interior
- Attractive price
- Less cargo space compared to rivals
- Tight third row
Describing how the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica seems easy. This model comes with a classic minivan shape. Of course, Chrysler has implemented its newest design language but the overall shape is in a classic minivan manner. The technical aspect of the vehicle is pretty much familiar and we don’t expect bigger surprises. This minivan rides on a familiar Fiat Compact platform and shares most of its characteristics with the recently discontinues Chrysler 200. All in all, it is a light and very economical vehicle.
The interior design is definitely a strong point of this minivan. It features a seating capacity of up to seven passengers. It seems pretty common, but a great thing about 2022 Chrysler Pacifica will be a familiar, extremely practical feature called Stow-n-Go. This interesting seat design allows you to configure the vehicle in many ways, by folding different seats, making all kinds of cargo-passenger combinations. The overall interior quality is at a high level. There are lots of soft-touch materials, so we could say that the Pacifica is pretty much on par with the class-leader Honda Oddysey. Another strong point of 2022 Chrysler Pacifica will be a long list of standard equipment, which will be even more expanded for this occasion. Even most basic models will come with tech features like a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, USB ports and smartphone integration and much more.
Just like in the current model, count on two powertrain options. Base models will feature a familiar 3.6-liter V6 engine, which for this occasion features around 290 horsepower. A fuel economy around 18 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway seems good, but those economy-minded drivers will find a hybrid version to be a much better choice. This system features the same V6 gasoline engine which gets help from two electric motors. The result is an amazing fuel economy, which goes around 32 mpg in a combined ride. Also, you can count on 33 miles of all-electric range.
2020 Chrysler Pacifica Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no bigger changes to come, the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica should come in usual time, which would, in this case, mean late 2019. Changes in price are not expected. Base models will go around $27,000, while a hybrid version will feature starting price around $40,000.
