The new 2023 Chrysler Pacifica will arrive next year, and it will be more practical, comfortable, and undeniably more handsome. For 2023, the manufacturer will introduce some minor exterior and interior upgrades, making this minivan more family friendly. If you didn’t know, the Pacifica is also known under the Chrysler Voyager name on entry trims.
However, in the same category with the Pacifica are one of the toughest rivals such as the Kia Carnival, Honda Odyssey, and Toyota Sienna. All mentioned models offer more equipment, but they are also pricier than the Pacifica. As far as we know, the upcoming minivan will be available with two engine options, including either a regular V6 or a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
2023 Chrysler Pacifica Redesign
The redesigned family hauler 2023 Chrysler Pacifica is still handsome and eye-catchy. Both the Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid will get some minor modifications outside to keep up with its rivals. In addition, we expect the Pacifica to keep the same proportions and to mimic the same design as an SUV.
At the front, this minivan dominates with a large grille, attractive headlights, and a short hood. The rear end is also handsome, and as the current Pacifica, the new one comes with the same U-shaped taillights, an upright liftgate, and a slim rear bumper.
What’s New Inside?
Expect the upcoming 2023 Chrysler Pacifica to be more modern inside. In general, this minivan is one of the most spacious models in the class. From what we know, the Pacifica doesn’t disappoint, even when it comes to hauling cargo.
According to the manufacturer, you can easily fit 53 of our carry-on suitcases inside with all the seats stowed. Impressive, isn’t it? On top of that, this model comes with an updated Uconnect 5 infotainment system that’s now connected to a glossy 10.1-inch touchscreen display. The Amazon Alexa integration as well as the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto comes standard, and all of them can be connected wirelessly. An optional rear-seat entertainment system is available once more, and it includes dual touchscreens to keep the kid’s entertainment.
2023 Chrysler Pacifica Engine Options
Like the outgoing model, the forthcoming one will come with the same base engine. This minivan comes with a 3.6-liter V6 powertrain that develops 287-hp. It uses a nine-speed automatic transmission and FWD as standard.
However, the Pacifica hybrid is a much better option. This variant produces 260 ponies thanks to a 3.6-liter V-6, two electric motors, and 16-kWh lithium-ion battery. According to the EPA, the new Pacifica hybrid can travel 33 miles on electric power, providing 84 MPGe combined.
Price, Release Date
The upcoming 2023 Chrysler Pacifica will be definitively more family-friendly. For 2023, the manufacturer will introduce some tweaks on the exterior and interior.
This minivan starts at $38,600, which is less than rivals in the same class such as the Kia Carnival and the Honda Odyssey. According to many reports, the new Chrysler Pacifica will go on sale next year, featuring more handsome styling, comfortable interior, and optional PHEV powertrain.
