Many owners of the Pacifica claim they bought this car on looks alone, being tired of a minivan but still needing room for a family. It's a great family vehicle and kids love it for all the roominess – it’s a mix of minivan, wagon and sport-utility vehicle. The quality of materials inside made this one of the nicest upscale family vehicles out there in the sector.
Chrysler placed a lot attention on the suspension, making for a high quality, luxurious ride, particularly in this 6 cylinder model. It drives more like a sedan than a minivan, gained top-notch safety scores and boasts an upscale interior design.
The roominess is not only a boon for families with kids, it is outstanding for people over 6 feet tall. The ceiling height is ample and legroom copious.
A surprisingly accommodating entry height makes getting in and out of the Pacifica a pleasure. There’s 13 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third-row seats when they are up. When all the rear section seats are folded into the floor, the cargo space opens to 79.5 cubic feet.
The AWD is hard to beat in snow, handles great and keeps glued to the road, the Pacifica can climb steep verticals in inclement weather assuredly. Loaded with features including leather and front and rear seat warmers, the captain’s chairs in the second row give kids some personal space, a very smart layout.
The base model had a three-passenger second-row bench seat, while this Touring trim included the second row captain's chairs that provide nearly as much comfort as the front seats.
The Pacifica's combination of upscale amenities, sharp handling, elevated driving position, tremendously comfortable seats, top safety scores and unconventional styling made this an exceptionally popular car over the years.
The 2006 Chrysler Pacifica came in three models: base, Touring and Limited. Base and Touring models were available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive; this Touring vehicle comes with the AWD option.
To the base features of two-row, five-passenger seating, cloth upholstery, CD player, full power accessories and keyless entry, the Touring added 17-inch alloy wheels, three-row six-passenger seating (with second-row captain's chairs), automatic climate control and a 10-way power driver seat.
All 2006 Pacificas are powered by a 3.5-liter V6, producing 250 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. All 2006 Pacificas came with a four-speed automatic transmission, though the AWD models have a simple but effective viscous-coupling center differential. The system has the intuitive ability to send up to 90 percent of the power to the front or rear wheels if needed based on road conditions.
Four-wheel antilock disc brakes are standard. The Chrysler Pacifica achieved a perfect five-star sweep in front- and side-impact crash tests conducted by the NHTSA (when equipped with certain optional airbags). In addition, the Pacifica was named a "Best Pick" by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in its frontal offset crash test.
