The Full-sized Pacifica universal crossovers were first presented at NAIAS'2002 in Detroit as a concept car and it puzzled the visitors. It was not clear to which class the novelty was included: for Sport Utility model the Pacifica car has got too small clearance, and for ordinary cars the car is rather massive (5049х1999х1689 mm, wheelbase - 2954 mm). In short, we’ve got the car that combines comfort and handling of full-sized sedan with spacious cabin and spirit of SUV.
It is noteworthy that this model is completely identical to the concept, which is rare. Serial production was started a year later, in January 2003 at a plant in Windsor (Ontario). For launching new models the company invested nearly 460 million of dollars.
In the cabin there are three rows of seats, two in each, for six passengers, an interesting innovation, which Chrysler is proud of. Landing is very comfortable as well as Chrysler Pacifica headlights. Rather big salon seems more due to the abundance of light – the roof of Pacifica is almost all-glass.
Under the hood of Pacifica there is 24-valve V6 engine with capacity of 3.5-liters and producing 250 horsepower, which is paired with automatic transmission with AutoStick sequential shift ability.
