While the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is not yet available at All Star Chrysler near University City, we did get word on some of the changes that are coming for this wonderful minivan. We want to share a few of those changes here with you today. If you have any questions, please head to All Star and talk with a member of the All Star team!
The Chrysler Pacifica, a minivan that earned Cars.com’s top award with its arrival for 2017, enters its second model year with a host of small changes. All variants have upgraded multimedia systems and a standard blind spot warning system with cross-traffic detection, with a new base trim level that’s a lot cheaper than before. The Pacifica Hybrid gets reshuffled trims, too.
On the multimedia front, a 7-inch dashboard touchscreen replaces last year’s 5-inch unit as the base system. A larger screen (8.4 inches) remains optional, and it now has HD radio and 4G LTE Wi-Fi if you get the optional navigation system. Both touchscreens have updated Uconnect multimedia systems with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which was previously unavailable. The available Wi-Fi now offers unlimited data through an AT&T subscription, though AT&T can throttle back your speed after a certain limit. Pricing becomes more affordable at the low end with a new entry-level trim called the Pacifica L, which starts $2,000 lower than the erstwhile-lowest LX.
“Other trims run $400 to $800 higher except the new Touring Plus, which replaces last year’s Touring version and runs $1,600 more. That makes six trim levels for 2018 — in ascending order, the L, LX, Touring Plus, Touring L, Touring L Plus and Limited; the 2018 Pacifica Hybrid comes in Touring Plus, Touring L and Limited variants.”-cars.com
