Why is the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica the Capable, Well-Equipped, and Family-Friendly Choice for Minivan Drivers in the Springfield, IL Area?

There's a lot of competition out there in the new van market here in eastern Illinois. As a result, our minivan experts and enthusiasts extraordinaire here at Landmark Chrysler Jeep Fiat get asked this question a lot. But it's answer is just as simple: plenty of reasons! Take a look, for example, at the latest 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Limited as it fares against mainstays like the 2018 Toyota Sienna Limited and 2018 Honda Odyssey Touring, and you'll see what we mean.

  • The 3.6-liter V6 standard in 2018 Pacifica Limited charges ahead of Honda Odyssey for the Jacksonville, IL drive, 287 spirited horsepower to 280.
  • Though our minivan's city and combined fuel economy are comparable to both its competitors, Pacifica nevertheless offers better highway efficiency than the 2018 Sienna, 28 mpg for the trip to Taylorville compared to Honda's 27.
  • Pacifica bests Odyssey in NHTSA front-passenger crash testing, five stars to four.
  • It also excels Sienna in IIHS safety ratings, earning a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK award with the highest rating of "Good," "Superior" front crash prevention, and an "Acceptable" headlight rating. Sienna falls short of that with only "Acceptable" drivers-side crashworthiness.
  • You'll find an enormous 165.0 cubic feet of passenger space for that upcoming Chatham, IL road trip, roominess that pulls ahead of both competitors. That includes both better front leg and hip room and more third-row head and shoulder room.
  • The new Pacifica is even more affordably priced, say, than Honda Odyssey, around $44,095 to the latter's $44,610 at base.
