Visit Chrysler for more information on the Chrysler Pacifica.

The Pacifica is Chrysler's entry in the infant sports tourer segment. Essentially a vehicle that blends the traits of cars, SUVs and minivans, the versatility of the new 2004 Chrysler Pacifica is unquestionable. It has plenty of room, ruggedness and power, plus confident road manners to boot. The Pacifica may very well be a model that defines an entirely new movement in the automotive industry. If not, at least it will offer busy families an attractive alternative to handle their chaotic driving needs.

The Pacifica is just another example of Chrysler's resurgence. Chrysler brand sales have nearly quadrupled to 481,000 units in 2002 from 130,542 units in 1991, and all signs indicate that this trend is more than just a blip on the screen. Along with the 2004 Crossfire, the new Pacifica represents a renewed commitment to quality and innovation. It is a good time at Chrysler, and the results of this momentum are fresh, quality vehicles like the 2004 Pacifica.

Available Models
The 2004 Chrysler Pacifica is a new model and is therefore only offered in one trim level at this time.

Interior Features
The four-door 2004 Chrysler Pacifica can hold six passengers. With easy step-across entry and exit, first-class seating, three rows of seats (including fold-flat second and third row seats), Pacifica sets a packaging standard in premium automotive transportation.

The new Pacifica's design has family comfort and convenience written all over it. A power liftgate, an auxiliary fan for rear seat passengers and dual zone automatic temperature control are included to keep everyone happy on those long drives. Additional features include an Infinity AM/FM/CD player, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls, cruise control, cloth upholstery and a memory system (driver seat, mirrors, pedals). Leather upholstery, a navigation system, an entertainment system and an in-dash 6-disc/DVD changer are all found on the options list.

Exterior Features
The 2004 Chrysler Pacifica has a wagon-style exterior form that employs SUV and minivan cues. It is built in the same plant as Chrysler and Dodge minivans, but it uses its own new, unique platform. Rear privacy glass and roof rails are standard.

The engine powering the 2004 Chrysler Pacifica is the same one that can be found in Chrysler's award-winning 300M. It is a 3.5-liter V6 model that is capable of 250 horsepower at 6400 rpm and 250 lb-ft of torque at 3950 rpm. The Pacifica is available with either front-wheel drive with traction control or all-wheel drive-something that clearly emphasizes its SUV inspiration. Pacifica's efficient engine is mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Load-leveling rear suspension and independent front suspension help maintain a stable, flat ride over bumpy surfaces. For drivers, the Pacifica is equipped with power adjustable pedals and an integrated, in-instrument cluster navigation system.

Safety and Security
Just like the new Chrysler Crossfire, the 2004 Chrysler Pacifica is committed to safety. It incorporates stringent quality standards, extensive safety development and one of the world's first three-row side curtain airbags. Additional standard features include dual front airbags, a driver-side knee airbag, antilock 4-wheel disc brakes and a tire-pressure monitor.
