How the Chrysler Pacifica Outstrips the Honda Odyssey

When looking for a minivan, you want optimum safety, versatility, and ingenuity, and the Chrysler Pacifica offers just that. With a smart-looking design to keep it classy, plenty of comfort and safety features to make each journey a breeze, and a wealth of high-tech options to keep everyone entertained, the Chrysler Pacifica is the family car to beat. While the Honda Odyssey is decent, it doesn't quite meet the challenge of the Pacifica. Here's why:

  • Comfort and Cargo Space:

    Whether you're shuttling kids around or hauling the team to work, the Pacifica seats up to eight passengers comfortably. Four doors and sliding seats make loading and unloading a breeze, and hands-free power sliding doors and liftgate make piling in the luggage, groceries, or car seats a walk in the park.

    But life isn't just hauling kids around. That's why the Chrysler Pacifica features the Stow 'n Go® Seating and Storage System. The second and third row seating folds completely into the floor so you can carry sheets of plywood and drywall for that weekend project, the huge TV you've had your eye on, or the entire band's equipment, all without breaking a sweat. Once you've unloaded your cargo, fold the seats back up in seconds to make room for passengers.

    Compare that to the Honda Odyssey. The middle seats have to come out entirely to offer that kind of cargo capacity, so get ready for some heavy lifting. And unless you're planning on strapping those seats to the roof, they won't be available when you get where you're going. If you're going on that cross-country camping trip, the Pacifica's available trailer hitch package will haul nearly two tons--hundreds of pounds more than the Honda Odyssey does.

  • Features

    What really seats the Pacifica apart from the competition is its technology. The available Uconnect® Theater brings your home theater experience on the road, with dual 10.1-inch HD touchscreens, Blu-ray™, wireless streaming, HDMI inputs, and Bluetooth® connectivity. The Pacifica features an available 20-speaker Harman Kardon® Surround Sound System to really take advantage of the Uconnect® infotainment system and available SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. Once you factor in Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, there's no boredom allowed on even the longest road-trip in a Chrysler Pacifica.

    That's nearly double the Honda Odyssey's entertainment options. Try having a relaxing drive while the kids fight over a single, smaller screen with lackluster speakers and fewer entertainment options.

  • Efficiency

    When it comes to efficiency, there's no competition for the Pacifica Hybrid. With 84 MPGE combined and a 566-mile range, the Pacifica's efficiency is unparalleled among minivans. That means fewer pit stops and paying less at the pump. The gas-powered Pacifica is impressive as well, with its powerful V6 engine and efficient 9-speed automatic transmission.

  • Pricing

    As with anything, value is a key factor when selecting a vehicle. You want a reliable, safe, comfortable vehicle, but you don't want to break the bank.  When matching comparable trim levels, the Pacifica's MSRP comes in an average of $3,000 less than the Honda. The only thing better than a safe, efficient-yet-powerful, high-tech minivan is a safe, efficient-yet-powerful, high-tech minivan and an extra $3,000. Why pay more money for less power, less features, and less comfort?
