    They (and Nissan) could not stop Georgia from dropping its $5k subsidy which made Nissan Leaf almost free to lease to residents of this state. Leaf sales dropped in half when its main market no longer subsidized it.

    Glad you asked, if the Pacifica Touring plus is ordered with 18" wheels and 8.4" uConnect as options, a rear overhead DVD is included.

    Rear Overhead DVD (XR1) $995

    8.4-inch Touchscreen (RA3) $695

    18-inch Wheels (ACF) $895

    Total MSRP of Options $2,585

    Receive Free Rear Overhead DVD -$995

    MSRP of Options less Free DVD $1,590

    Total MSRP w/ Free Overhead DVD $33,950

    This makes the total MSRP of the Pacifica Plus equal to the MSRP of the Odyssey SE, but with more standard features, more options, and overhead rear DVD. :D

    All I know is that these are fine looking vehicles. Very attractive. Much more so than a minivan has a right to be.

    "Touring L"

    LOL is marketing out of names for trim levels or something? That's crystal clear to both customers and dealers /sarcasm

    What's odd too is that normally FCA has been doing Trim + major package, these are all separate trim levels.

    Based on several wonky decisions over the last 6 years (remember "Crew", "Heat", and "Citadel"?) I'm convinced FCA's marketing division is a room full of monkeys with typewriters.

    Wonderful, let's take a thread full of good news and run it down the rabbit hole of negativity and insults. While some different strategies and decisions have been tried over the last few years, that comment is pretty dang insulting to the people who do the marketing work the best they can with what they have.

    Dealers have been asking for a package that would better compete with the import brands, management and marketing listened and in this case it looks like they got it right.

    There are current 4 consumer targeted Pacifica models:
    1. PACIFICA TOURING
    2. PACIFICA TOURING-L
    3. PACIFICA TOURING-L PLUS
    4. PACIFICA LIMITED
    It's not confusing and it's not hard to understand because each model has a specific demographic it is trying to sell too and content for that demograph. A dealer can simply look at the order guide information and a consumer will be able to see the updated mode lineup at some point. This is a new model and it was a smart move by Chrysler.

    There is a fifth model, the Pacifica LX, is biased toward fleet only and that fact is clearly listed in the dealer guide. Again, I wish people would take five minutes to actually look up and understand the advantages and disadvantages to each model before throwing insults.

    If anyone has questions about specific models, maybe consider asking here instead of being insulting to the employees at Chrysler who are simply doing their job by trying to find ways to better market the Pacifica and keep it competitive.

    And before anyone asks... The Pacifica Hybrid is considered a seperate vehicle from the straight gasoline Pacifica lineup and has its own model specific dealer order guide.
