FCA offers two of the top minivan options on the market, but it can be hard to figure out which one is best for you and your family. That’s where we at Great West Chrysler come in, as we’re experienced with both (not to mention maintaining both in stock) and can easily outline what you get from each one. From luxury to cargo space to technology to price to engine efficiency and power, the Grand Caravan and Pacifica compare and contrast in many ways. Explore the differences of these minivans, from your premier Dodge Edmonton and Chrysler Edmonton dealer, Great West Chrysler!
Dodge Grand Caravan
Perhaps most important when comparing these minivan options, is the cargo space you get in them. After all, you’re getting a minivan because you have a lot to carry, whether kids or gear, or both. The Grand Caravan provides 934L of cargo space compared to 915L for the Pacifica, thanks to the Stow ‘N Go® system. You’ll save more money with it too, thanks to its 3.6L Pentastar™ V6 engine getting improved fuel economy at 11.8L/100 km of combined economy, in comparison to the Pacifica at 10.9L/100 km. When shopping, you get to choose from an extra trim level, 8 for the Grand Caravan against 7 for the Pacifica. Not to mention the Grand Caravan starts at a much cheaper price of $25,195 compared to the Pacifica which begins at $32,245.
The Chrysler Pacifica is for those who want the utmost in their minivan. The Pacifica offers luxury-level features and styling, but in a capable minivan. It has a much improved Uconnect 4C media centre for navigation, satellite radio, and more, while the Grand Caravan only comes with a Radio 430 system for basic connectivity. While the 3.6L Pentastar™ VVT V6 might lose a touch in fuel economy, it makes up by winning in performance with 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. The Pacifica also offers Canada’s only hybrid minivan option, for those who want to go green. From its wheels up, the Pacifica is perhaps the most expertly styled and refined minivan on the market, combining exterior and interior luxury without sacrificing the utility demands of a minivan.
