    Bahaahaa! I love that new Pacifica TV commercial talking about Stow-n-Go, where the Honda owner is there, with his back nearly broke lifting seats out! :)

    Manitoba here. I've noticed each dealer finally seems to have one or two token Pacificas out front right now. I saw one on the road - except it had a dealer plate hanging from the back so it wasn't even sold. All the promo material I've been getting from the dealer lately is highlighting sales on base model Grand Caravan, Journey, Cherokee, and Ram 1500.

    Speaking of Manitoba, I looked at the sticker price of a Pacifica and promptly ran the 100 yard dash in less than 6 seconds, a world record; the sticker price was just over $60 000.00 !!

    Wow! That's a lot of money. I think the one I looked at was $46'ish.
    Not saying it isn't worth it to somebody, just not me. I'd have have to stay within my means with DGC, I am the middle.

    There's one in my local dealer's showroom with an MSRP of $48k (CAD) Mind you, it's sitting next to a Ram 1500 Laramie Limited EcoDiesel with an MSRP of $75k (CAD)

    ...almost seems like a deal!

    That's insane! You could buy two well equipped Grand Caravans for that!

    I'm sorry, but is the production cost REALLY that much higher for the new generation of vans versus the outgoing ones?

    I've seen one or two in the wild; and both were the higher-end models I think? (been a bit since I saw 'em)

    I see many here in DC, low and high-end. They look great.

    The costs of development of the Caravan have been absorbed while the costs of the Pacifica are just being amortized.

    In 1905 you could buy a Model T for $850-$1000. In 1927, they cost between $380-$425. The later models were better equipped but he could build them quicker and in greater volume.
    Development cost back then ( and even when the current Caravan was developed) did not reflect the mandatory government requirements now needed and meeting the newest crash standards now expected. Look at the base Caravan features and see how much more is standard on the Pacifica. Not saying that a stripper version will not be announced when the Caravan is withdrawn.

    Apples and Oranges - both fruit, but not the same.

    Grand Caravan/Town & Country and Pacifica - all minivans, but not the same.

    When you sit in both, the upgrades to the Pacifica are truly impressive!
