This is a minivan, yes, but it’s pretty much unlike any minivan you’ve seen previously. For starters, its long-ish hood gives it an almost cab-rearward profile more akin to one of those pesky 7-passeger crossovers that have been stealing customers away from minivans over the last decade or so. Those customers obviously haven’t seen nor sat in a Pacifica
. If they did, they’d no doubt be impressed about how well-appointed it is, how accessible (you can walk between the 2nd
row captain’s chairs to get to the third row, or flip the former forward) and they haven’t felt how well it drives. It’s quiet, has good Pentastar V6 power and manages to keep body roll well in check, even though it’s a tall drink of water. The minivan is back.
