Pictured: 2020 Chrysler Pacifica
The Pacifica, part of Chrysler's lineup since 2004, is a three-row large minivan with seating up to 8. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily handle mud, snow, and sand. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. Having more than average horsepower for its class, the Pacifica packs some oomph. Chrysler offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2023 Chrysler Pacifica is average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2023 Chrysler Pacifica has a score of 80, implying a 0.041% chance of driver death (3.7% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2023 Chrysler Pacifica has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0414% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.7277%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0414% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.7277% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2023 Chrysler Pacifica is 11% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other , the 2023 Chrysler Pacifica is 3% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. All trims and versions of the 2023 Chrysler Pacifica include the following active safety systems: Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning (FCW) with Active Braking & Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking System, LaneSense Lane Departure Warning System, and Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM).

Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Side mirror turn signals are standard on the Chrysler Pacifica. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
