The Chrysler Pacifica was originally a concept luxury minivan created by DaimlerChrysler under the Chrysler marque in 1999. The Pacifica was intended to be an upscale variant of the Town & Country. The name was eventually applied to a crossover, itself inspired by the Chrysler Citadel concept, which was produced from 2003 to 2008. The Chrysler Pacifica Crossover was a mid-size crossover was produced by Chrysler from 2003 to 2007. Moreover, when showing your Pacifica some TLC, don’t forget that a Chrysler Pacifica repair manual may be just the tool you need to get the job done.
The Pacifica was the first jointly engineered product of the 1998 marriage between Daimler and Chrysler. It was introduced in 2002, and Chrysler marketed the Pacifica as a ""sports-tourer.” The 2004 Pacifica only came in one trim level. The Pacifica line was broadened to include four trim levels, in 2005: Base, Touring, Limited, and a special-edition Signature Series. The interior was restyled. The base-model Pacifica offered interior colored plastic trim, while faux wood trim came standard in Pacifica Touring and Limited models.
In 2007, the Pacifica's exterior was slightly restyled to include fenders, headlights, grille, hood, and front fascia. Moreover, a 4.0 L SOHC V6 engine was added, to complement the 3.8 L EGH V6, which was standard at the time. With the new engine and transmission, Chrysler added Dual Exhaust. New options also included a rearview camera incorporated into the navigation system and additional wheel options.
Chrysler announced on November 1, 2007, the discontinuation of the Pacifica Crossover. On November 23, 2007, the final Pacifica rolled off the assembly. In January 2016, the “Pacifica” name was revived for a 2017 model year minivan, which was the replacement for the Chrysler Town & Country.
The Pacifica minivan used a new revision of the 3.6 L Pentastar V6 engine and was produced with two powertrains, gasoline and plug-in hybrid, the latter was marketed as Pacifica Hybrid. The plug-in hybrid version used a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery, with an all-electric range of 33 mi (53 km) before switching back to the gasoline engine. The gasoline version of the Pacifica minivan was put on the market in 2016; the plug-in hybrid version, in 2017.
The 2019 Pacifica minivan comes in six trim levels: L, LX, Touring Plus, Touring L, Touring L Plus, and Limited. The L comes with a 3.6L V6 24V VVT engine; all other trim levels come with the 3.6L V6 24V VVT engine with ESS. A 9-speed transmission is standard with both engine options.
The Pacifica nameplate has had and continues to have quite a history. Moreover, with the popularity of the Pacifica minivan, we don't see the Pacifica going away anytime soon. So, remember if you ever need help servicing your Pacifica, having a Chrysler Pacifica service manual can make the job go smoother.
