    That's amazing. The employees at my local Dollar General manage to greet me every time, and I'm guessing they're not working on commission.

    Quoting the image because it's on a prior page, but... it looks a lot nicer than 90% of the cars out there now. Does something with all that tailgate space, and matches on left and right. I hate the “we chose the wrong trunk but so what?” look that I think Toyota pioneered in the late 1990s, where the lights clearly don't match up properly betwen the body and hatch lid/trunk lid/etc.

    I couldn't agree more. All that black plastic below the rear glass never made much sense to me on the current model.

    Mazda has offered a manual until very recently, if not still? I think you can get one in the 3 or 6 series if you order it.

    Is this some inside joke? If it's open season, throw in lobster.
    This announcement has triggered/rekindled me... searching for Pacifica (and VOYAGER) on AutoTrader, CarGurus, et al.
    There are some dealers showing some vans (both ones) for $21,000 new. That's super reasonable. I wonder what the main differences are; I never remember the Voyager.
    Hyundai to me Catfishzoidal.

    Looking back, this was the first EMOJII car.

    I was thinking the other day how it would go over if one model could offer the option for the second/rear entry to be Doors on hinges OR sliders. I've always thought the Journey is just a minivan with doors.

    Block numbers; "STOP" texts; Send email to JUNK or opt-out/unsubscribe.

    I look at lots of cars. I currently have an Si I have 'saved' on Cargurus. [​IMG]

    The view from "the six" is the best, imo. In black. I was thinking the other day, wonder if someone could make four small led light strips to fill in the hatch/gap in the 'racetrack'/circuit. Must be bugging my OCD. perhaps some lens/prism or the plastic which transmits the light from the main surface to the edges?

    Honestly if they 'Dodgify' the rear end in order to win over the caravan crowd, that works for me. I like the shape, and that center bar could be brake lights, maybe. Regarding the brand position, I think they should always be a step ahead of the competition, period.

    You looking for new? lightly-used?
    how many seat belts?
    I was actually impressed by the Veloster. Buy maybe because I drove the "N" and had the #1 [person who likes a particular brand] in seat next to me. But fairly impressed.
    I also liked the Fiesta; (again the ST) and I know... Ford. VW Golf? MINI Cooper (Pick a variant) Fiat 500 Hyundai Accent Kia Soul Yaris Corolla Jeep Compass

    Possibly, but how many times has the CUV been on again off again? They need leadership that sticks with the plan.

    In 2019, there were upper and lower trim Pacificas and no Voyager. For 2020, they renamed the low trim Pacifica to Voyager.

    I want one. The size, layout, and utility are perfect for our needs. The AWD provides the extra grip we need on slippery days to get in and out of our neighborhood. However, I have my doubts that I can get my wife on board for a minivan.

    There will always be a market for a full size sedan, we can own that market with a small bit of effort.

    Going back a ways, prior-gen Mazda3 is also a consideration. If I wanted an old used car, I'd get another Dart. I give car sellers a phone number that only goes to message, and doesn't ring anything. I told them I was postponing a decision till March, and I still get calls and emails every day or two. Honda dealers are pretty desperate or their software is overly aggressive. Mazda, not so much. Toyota (I wanted to at least drive a Corolla 6MT) doesn't seem interested in selling cars, and in any case while they make the 6MT, no dealer seems to have one. I like the Corolla's comfort and economy, the old 3's feel, and the Si's seats and responsiveness. I also like the Hyundai sporty two-door but the suspension's way to stiff for our junk roads. (And don't complain about yours till you've come here.) The Pacifica Hybrid is pretty attractive.

    I still have Jeep dealers call me after I told them, repeatedly, that I already bought one.

    The so-called “artificial intelligence” behind Google and Facebook ads is no better. They keep showing me Jeeps I looked at 6 months ago.

    True but the news article stated AWD will be available on 2020 Chrysler Pacifica AWD Launch Edition, which opens for dealer orders in the second quarter of 2020 and begins arriving in dealerships late in the same quarter. So if ordering will start in April 2020, is that when B&P will open?
    It will also be available on any model of the 2021 Pacifica
