Diving into Pacifica options — and their costs

by David Zatz on

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica will be showing up on dealer lots fairly soon, with production already under way. Usually, it takes quite a while to stock all the outlying dealerships, with deliveries coming by train and truck.

All trimlines have optional engine block heaters ($115), eight-seat capacity for $495, and tire/wheel upgrades.

The base Pacifica, the LX, starts at $28,595 plus a $995 destination charge. It doesn’t have many options; you can get the pushbutton start for $175, and SafetyTec for under a thousand (which is quite a deal).  Fleet buyers can get a roofrack, spare tire, power sliding doors, or big screen nav system. All colors are “no added cost.”

The Touring has essentially the same options as the LX, except that everyone can get the 8.4 inch Uconnect ($595) and the power liftgate ($495) is optional.

Move up to the Touring-L, and you can get a 13-speaker Alpine sound system ($895) or spare tire ($295) as well. Apparently the spare tire isn’t sold with LX or Touring. Put on a plus sign, and the optional Alpine system is now an optional 20-speaker Harmon Kardon system ($995); and Advanced SafetyTec appears at $1,995. At this level you can buy the trailer towing group.

Pacifica Limited buyers can opt for the same packages as Touring-L buyers, except that the optional stereo is now an optional Theater Package at the same price. You can also get the UConnect Theater and Sound Group for $2,795, and replace the vacuum with a spare tire at no charge.

The difference between the Theater and Theater and Sound package is the Harman Kardon sound system, in case you wondered. If you don’t get the Theater and Sound package, you get the 13-speaker Alpine system. Traditionally, the Alpine systems in Chrysler cars have been quite good.

Minivans with cloth seats have a choice between black and gray fabric and “cognac, alloy, and toffee” fabric — two patterns. Leather has the same color choices for Touring-L, and black/gray or black/dark brown for Limited. Limited Platinum (shown in the photos) has a light tan interior.
