Meet the 2024 Chrysler Pacifica near El Paso, TX
The sleek Chrysler Pacifica is a minivan known for firsts. This includes the original Chrysler Town ‘n Country minivan, innovative Stow-N-Go® seating, and being the first to be offered as a hybrid. Today, it is the only minivan you can get as a plug-in hybrid or PHEV. (The hybrid-only Toyota Sienna doesn’t even achieve the superior all-electric range of the Pacifica!)
Still leading the class, the 2024 Chrysler Pacifica near El Paso, TX returns for the new model year with a choice of powertrains. Keep reading to discover more about this remarkable family hauler.
What’s New for 2024?
Changes for the 2024 Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica PHEV include several minor updates, with most of them affecting the trim levels. A new Sepia interior color is now standard for the top-tier Pinnacle trim, including quilted Nappa leather upholstery in Sepia, with Light Diesel contrast stitching and Sydney Gray piping. There are two new paint colors for the exterior: Baltic Gray and Red Hot.
With its exclusive exterior design motif and 20-inch wheels on the traditional (non-hybrid) model, the Road Tripper package is available with the new Baltic Gray paint for 2024. It has unique graphics using Brilliant Orange outlining and badging with orange accents.
The Pacifica PHEV loses the Touring L and Limited trims in favor of one entry-level variant called Select. This new base model offers several options, including the S Appearance, Premium S Appearance, and Road Tripper packages. And just like the gasoline version, the highest trim of the plug-in hybrid also comes standard with the new Sepia color-scheme interior.
An Emergency Vehicle Alert System has been added to the Uconnect infotainment software for 2024, warning drivers of active ambulances, fire trucks, or other dangers or incidents on the road. No other significant changes have been made for the upcoming model year.
2024 Chrysler Pacifica near El Paso, TX: Interior
Spacious and airy, the Pacifica is filled with the features your family needs, such as slide-out bins, cubbies, cupholders, and excellent connectivity. A 10.1-inch touchscreen framed by air vents gives the driver complete control at the touch of a button. The Uconnect 5 infotainment system has a reconfigurable home screen, Amazon Alexa integration, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. A Wi-Fi hotspot will keep everyone connected while on the go, and the available rear-seat entertainment system will keep the kiddos happy with dual touchscreens and Amazon Fire TV. Up to 12 USB ports are scattered throughout the cabin, including a few USB-C types, which provide faster charging speeds for smartphones and tablets.

- Adaptive cruise control and lane-departure warning

Power and Performance
Although it may not be the fastest minivan on the market, the Pacifica is far from slow. It moves from 0-60 mph in 7.3 seconds, about middle ground for performance, and feels quite perky driving in town. The gasoline-powered version combines a 9-speed automatic transmission with a 3.6-liter V6 that delivers 287 horsepower. With the Pacifica Hybrid, you’ll get a 3.6-liter V6 and two electric motors paired with a 16.0-kWh battery pack that generates 260 horsepower. Drivers who want AWD must stick with the conventional engine because the PHEV only comes in front-wheel drive.
As well as using space efficiently, a minivan should be fuel efficient. The 2024 Chrysler Pacifica near El Paso, TX rates 19 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined. According to the EPA, you’ll get 33 all-electric miles and 84 MPGe combined with the Pacifica PHEV.
