How Much Does the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Cost

The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica starts at $39,995. That's one of the 

highest retail prices in the hybrid and electric SUV class, and it 

also makes the Pacifica Hybrid the most expensive minivan.

How Many People Does the Pacifica Hybrid Seat?

The Chrysler Pacifica seats seven people, in contrast to other 

minivans that hold up to eight. Its sole configuration is two second-

row captain's chairs and a third-row bench seat. The front seats are 

supportive, and they offer good outward visibility in all directions.

The middle-row seats are more comfortable than those in the 

nonhybrid Pacifica, which offers Stow n' Go bucket seats that have 

to be smaller so they can fold into the floor. Entry and exit for the 

back seats are both easy thanks to a low step-in height and 

standard power-sliding rear doors. You can also opt for hands-free 

rear doors. The third row is easy to access and has enough room 

for adults to ride in comfort.

Cloth upholstery and an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat 

come standard. Higher trims include features such as leather 

upholstery, upgraded Nappa leather, a heated and leather-wrapped 

steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, and an eight-way 

power-adjustable passenger seat.

Pacifica Hybrid and Child Car Seats

There are four complete sets of LATCH connectors: one for each 

second-row seat and the third-row outboard seats. The Insurance 

Institute for Highway Safety gives the system the second-lowest 

rating of Marginal for ease of use.

All of the top tether anchors are hard to find, and you might 

mistake the third-row tethers for other hardware on the backs of 

the seats. It’s difficult to maneuver your hands in the tight spaces 

around the lower anchors. Furthermore, it requires a good amount 

of force to attach the car-seat straps.

Pacifica Hybrid Interior Quality

The Pacifica Hybrid has a modern, refreshing interior. Most 

surfaces are soft to the touch, and rich amenities like Nappa leather 

upholstery are a surprising option in a minivan. Still, you may 

notice some build-quality issues like uneven stitching or larger-

than-normal door panel gaps.  

Pacifica Hybrid Cargo Space

The 2020 Pacifica Hybrid has 32.3 cubic feet of cargo space 

behind its last row of seats, which is on par with competing 

minivans. The third-row Stow 'n Go bench seat folds down into the 

floor, which opens up 87.5 cubic feet of space. Rivals in the hybrid 

and electric SUV class offer much less cargo space.

This Chrysler has a maximum cargo capacity of 140.5 cubic feet. 

However, the second-row seats don't fold, and you have to remove 

them completely from the vehicle in order to carry the most cargo. 

You'll want a second set of hands to help drag out these bulky, 

heavy seats.

Pacifica Hybrid Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

All Pacifica Hybrid models feature the U connect infotainment 

system with an 8.4-inch touch screen. This interface earns praise 

for its ease of use and simple menu structures. The on-screen 

buttons are large and clear, and the system processes your touch 

commands quickly. You may find that it requires a few extra steps 

to adjust the settings for some things, like the seat ventilation or 

the heated steering wheel. But that's about the only complaint.

Android Auto and Apple Car Play smartphone integration come 

standard, as do voice recognition, HD Radio, satellite radio, tri-

zone automatic climate control, and a 7-inch digital instrument 

cluster display. Optional features include remote start, navigation, 

two second-row USB ports, a third-row USB port, a 13-speaker 

Alpine or 20-speaker Harman Kardon stereo, and a tri-pane 

panoramic sunroof.

A single-screen overhead DVD rear seat entertainment system is 

also available. The top Limited model comes standard with the U 

connect Theater dual-screen setup, which includes two 10-inch 

seat back touch screens, wireless headphones, a household-style 

power outlet, and HDMI inputs.

Pacifica Hybrid Performance

Pacifica Hybrid Engine: Vantastic Electric Power

The Chrysler Pacifica's hybrid power train consists of a 3.6-liter 

V6 engine and two electric motors that combine to produce 260 

horsepower. A continuously variable automatic transmission is 

standard. This minivan gets going from a stop with enthusiasm, 

and power surges thanks to instantly available torque from the 

electric motors.

Transitions from electric power to the gas engine are seamless, and 

there's plenty of power for merging or passing at higher speeds. 

However, the gas engine is loud and sounds a little unrefined.  

Pacifica Hybrid Gas Mileage: Impressive by Most Counts

The 2020 Pacifica Hybrid returns an EPA-estimated 82 MPG 

equivalent and 30 mpg combined city/highway. For more on 

MPGe ratings, checking out What Is MPGe?

As the only hybrid (or plug-in-hybrid) minivan on the market, this 

Pacifica is much more fuel-efficient than its nonhybrid rivals. 

However, it comes up a little short compared to the rest of the 

hybrid and electric SUV class.

The Pacifica Hybrid can go 32 miles on all-electric power. That 

electric range is longer than plug-in-hybrid SUV rivals.

Pacifica Hybrid Ride and Handling: Agreeable

The front-wheel-drive Pacifica glides over bumps in the road and 

uneven pavement. The batteries add extra weight, which lowers 

the minivan's center of gravity, giving the Pacifica composed 

handling. Like most hybrids, this Chrysler uses regenerative brakes 

that capture energy used to stop the car and transfers it to the 

batteries. The Pacifica Hybrid brakes feel more refined than most 

rivals, but they still might take a little getting used to.

Pacifica Hybrid Reliability

Is the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Reliable?

J.D. Power gives the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid a predicted 

reliability rating of three out of five, which is about average.  

Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Warranty

Chrysler covers the Pacifica Hybrid with a three-year/36,000-mile 

basic warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile power train warranty. 

Certain hybrid electrical components are covered for 10 years or up to 150,000 miles.

Pacifica Hybrid Safety

Pacifica Hybrid Crash Test Results

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration nor 

the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has crash tested the 

2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.

Pacifica Hybrid Safety Features

The 2020 Pacifica Hybrid comes standard with blind spot 

monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, rear parking sensors, and a 

rearview camera. You can also opt for the Key sense feature, 

which lets you set speed, audio volume, and other limits for 

secondary drivers. Key sense also prevents some crash-avoidance 

features from being disabled.

To equip the Pacifica Hybrid with most other driver assistance 

technologies, you'll need to spring for the highest Limited trim and 

purchase an additional package. Doing so puts the cost of the 

minivan at almost $47,000. At a time when most brands are 

making active safety features standard in their vehicles (or offering 

them at lower price points), the Pacifica Hybrid sticks out in a bad 


Optional advanced safety features include adaptive cruise control, 

surround-view parking camera system, automatic high-beam 

headlights, forward collision warning, automatic emergency 

braking, lane departure warning, automatic parking assist, front 

parking sensors, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

Pacifica Hybrid Dimensions and Weight

The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is 17 feet long. Its curb weight is 

4,987 pounds, and its gross vehicle weight rating is 6,300 pounds.

Where Is the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Built?

Chrysler builds the Pacifica Hybrid in Canada.

Which Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Model Is Right for Me?

The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid comes in three trims: Touring, 

Touring L, and Limited. The two higher trims are available as 35th 

Anniversary Edition models, which have special badging and 

exclusive interior colors.

The three trims are separated by less than $6,000, so choosing 

between models depends on how strict your budget is.

The base model gives you most of the available infotainment 

technology, including an 8.4-inch touch screen, Android Auto, 

Apple Car Play, and satellite radio. It also lets you add features 

like  heated seats and navigation without stepping up a full trim 

level. To get driver assistance features beyond the standard blind 

spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert, you'll have to buy the 

top-of-the-line Limited model, and then a package on top of that.

Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Touring

The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Touring starts at $39,995. The 

standard U connect infotainment system features an 8.4-inch touch

monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, rear parking sensors, and a rear 

view camera.

heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, and remote start. Other 

optional features include a power lift gate ($595), navigation 

($695), a rear-seat DVD entertainment system ($995), and the Key 

sense driver monitoring feature ($295).

stereo, an eight-way power-adjustable passenger seat, two second-

row USB ports, and a third-row USB port.

sliding doors, a hands-free power lift gate, power-folding outside 

mirrors, a household-style power outlet, a 20-speaker Harman
