Chrysler currently has just a couple of vehicles in its lineup and Pacifica is the only one that isn’t considered outdated. Although introduced five years ago, the current generation received a significant update in 2021, which brought a completely new styling, new interior design and more. That’s a clear indicator that the current generation has a few more years before it gets replaced with a new model, which will probably go all-electric. That fact is also a clear indicator that the 2024 Chrysler Pacifica will come without more important updates.
All in all, you may count on the same design and features. In practice, this means a minivan that offers a couple of competent powertrain options, along with good fuel economy. Furthermore, the cabin isn’t just spacious and comfortable, but also well-equipped. All these features are complemented by a smooth ride, so it’s no wonder that Pacifica is still the best-selling minivan on the market, even though some rivals are younger and more modern.
Considering that no bigger changes are about to come, we presume that the 2024 Chrysler Pacifica will arrive sometime in the second half of 2023.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Design
As we already mentioned, the current generation of Chrylser’s minivan has been around for a while. However, it received a significant update in 2021, which made it far more relevant in the market. These updates brought a lot of novelties, particularly in terms of styling. The old design language was replaced with a new one, which brought boxier and bolder aesthetical solutions, which resulted in a more aggressive appearance, which even brings some SUV bits.
On the other hand, we didn’t see many mechanical changes, so the 2024 Chrysler Pacifica should continue in the same way. The Pacifica offers a smooth and comfortable ride but at the same time, it offers decent handling and it’s pretty easy to drive.
The cabin layout will also remain the same. Therefore, you may count on all the updates that were introduced with the recent refresh. The new dashboard features a more attractive shape and also comes with more tech features. Finally, materials are much nicer and all that makes this minivan look very upscale from the inside.
Besides quality, this interior also offers plenty of room. Thanks to the long wheelbase, all three rows feature enough legroom to accommodate adults with ease. The total seating capacity is for seven passengers, though you can also get a version with an additional third seat in the second row.
The cargo area is another strong point of this minivan. You may count on about 32.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind its third-row seats, 87.5 cubic feet with these seats folded, and 140.5 cubic feet of the total cargo volume. A great thing about Pacifica is that both second and third-row seats fold flat, which isn’t the case with rivals like Honda Odyssey, where the second row needs to be physically removed for the maximum cargo space.
We might see a few new things in terms of standard and available equipment but the 2024 Chrysler Pacifica should carry on mostly in the same way. Therefore, expect to see base models with goodies like a 10.1-inch touch screen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, three USB ports, satellite radio, a six-speaker stereo, tri-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, remote start, and ambient lighting.
Among available upgrades, expect to find things like navigation, a 19-speaker stereo, HD Radio, wireless device charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot, additional USB ports, a rear-seat camera (FamCam), rear-seat entertainment system with two 10.1-inch touch screens and Amazon Fire compatibility, a panoramic sunroof and an integrated vacuum cleaner
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Engines
Things under the hood will also carry on without changes. Therefore, you may count on two familiar powertrain options, starting from the standard 3.6-liter V6 engine that puts out around 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That’s plenty enough for a strong performance. Base models come with front-wheel drive, while an AWD system is available. When it comes to fuel economy, you may count on up to 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, which is typical for the segment.
The Pacifica is also available with a hybrid powertrain. Of course, we are talking about a familiar plug-in hybrid system, based on the V6 engine. The average fuel economy in hybrid mode goes around d 30 mpg combined, while you may also count on 32 miles of range in the EV mode.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2024 Chrysler Pacifica will arrive sometime in the second half of 2023, with a starting price of around 38.000 dollars.
