2022 Chrysler Pacifica: A Trim Comparison
This year, Chrysler pulled out all the stops to build one of the best minivans on the market. Of course, you could go with the base trim, but what do the others have to offer? This trim comparison can help you decide which Chrysler Pacifica offering you should purchase.
Choosing a Pacifica Trim
The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica is one of the top minivans on the market. While there aren’t many minivans on the market, this one is easily a top choice for families, offering great performance and plenty of features.
The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Touring is the base trim and the least expensive option for the Chrysler Pacifica. It has a starting MSRP of $37,095 and comes with plenty of essential features. The car’s 3.6L V6 engine gets 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, which is better fuel economy than most minivans on the market.
The interior comes with cloth low-back bucket seats, a floor console that includes four cup holders, a Stow ‘n Go seating and storage system, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, tri-zone climate control and a USB port. This trim seats seven people max. The Uconnect 5 infotainment system features a 10.1-inch touchscreen with Amazon Alexa, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration. Bluetooth, HD radio and satellite radio are also standard.
The best thing about the Chrysler Pacifica Touring is the number of safety features included. Multiple airbags located around the cabin, including a driver and passenger inflatable knee-bolster airbag. A rear back-up camera with rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and rear cross traffic alert are standard as well. There are also sliding door alert warnings, rear occupant alert, and variable intermittent windshield wipers for the front and rear.
The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L is when you see some significant upgrades that aren’t available on the lower trims. Naturally, it has what the Pacifica Touring offers and more. You can expect the price for the Touring L to start at $40,465. Immediately, drivers will notice that the heated, leather-trimmed bucket front seats, panoramic sunroof, and the heated steering wheel. There’s also back seat ambient lighting and third-row sunshades, as well as grocery bag hooks.
Standard safety features added to this trim are front parking sensors, hands-free park assist, and a surround-view parking camera system.
The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Limited is the most expensive option but has the most features included. It has a starting MSRP of $49,145 and comes with everything the Pacifica Touring L includes and more. Sitting down in the driver’s seat may seem even more comfortable with the inclusion of driver seat/side view mirror memory and premium Nappa leather-trimmed bucket seats.
The Limited becomes more convenient for most drivers with the addition of power-folding third-row seating, heated and ventilated front seats. It also comes standard with an integrated vacuum cleaner, hands-free power-sliding doors, navigation, HD radio and wireless device charging. The 19-speaker stereo system fills the cabin with incredible sound.
The Pinnacle trim, for $53,390, features chrome exterior trim, second-row captain chairs with under-floor storage bins, and a premium 19-speaker premium Harman Kardon sound system. The Uconnect Theater Family Group package, which is only optional with most trims, features two 10.1-inch touch screens, third-row USB port and a Blu-ray player. Also included with this price is the Premium and Safety Sphere Group package with parking assist features and navigation.
Hybrid versions of all the trims mentioned above are available as well. The cost of the FWD trim starts at $53,300, while the Pinnacle trim with AWD starts at $56,095. Features included with the hybrid trims vary slightly, however, the main draw with the hybrid models is, of course, the fuel economy. The plug-in hybrid model gets the equivalent of 82 mpg.
