This week, we’re driving Chrysler’s 2020 Pacifica, but this time it’s the hybrid model in Limited trim that sits in our driveway. Pacifica is the company’s most impressive and luxurious minivan to date and is now celebrating its 35th anniversary.
Pacifica is a direct descendant of the famous Chrysler family of Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager minivans that debuted in September of 1983 as 1984 models. These original minivans successfully filled a void for those who needed the room of a station wagon but just didn’t want to buy one. (Kind of like where the minivan is today, thus the many three-row albeit crowded SUVs).
