The standard Pacifica offers a long list of extra features. Like the hybrid, it offers user-friendly tech, a spacious, quality interior, and a smooth, quiet ride.

It is simple and easy to transform the Pacifica from a people carrier to a cargo transport; the seats are easy to move and transform, thanks to the Stow ‘n Go system, providing drivers with ample space to haul whatever they need. Even with the seats in place, there is plenty of space for luggage or groceries. There are six trim levels to choose from. Plus, the non-hybrid Pacifica can tow up to 3,600 pounds (the hybrid is not recommended for towing).
