Research and Compare the New Chrysler Pacifica and the New Toyota Sienna

What's the first thing when you think of when you're trying to find a multipurpose vehicle that fits the whole family and is both comfortable and well-equipped? Is it a midsize crossover? Or maybe it's a minivan. If you've been thinking about purchasing or leasing one of these people-haulers, then you should know one thing right out of the gate, or sliding second-row door. Not all minivans are made the same.

At Scap Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, we're going to do you a solid by showing you how the new Chrysler Pacifica compares to one of its main rivals, the Toyota Sienna. As with all our efforts, this piece is one way we can prove our continued commitment to customer satisfaction through the creation of an easy, hassle-free experience. Without further delay, here's how these two minivans compare.

Safety and Technology: Keeping You Connected

We'll start our comparison with safety, since that is, no doubt one of your paramount concerns when searching for a family vehicle. The Pacifica and Sienna both are safe, with the Sienna coming with Toyota Safety Sense-P (TSS-P) technology, and the Pacifica being equipped with standard blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and front and rear parking sensors with automatic emergency braking.

Capacity and Space: Stow n' Go to the Rescue!

Let's face it, one of the main reasons you need a minivan is for the extra space - space for passengers as well as space for cargo. While both of these minivans offer seating for seven passengers and plenty of room for cargo, the Pacifica takes the edge with innovative and convenient Stow 'n Go storage.

V6 Power: Get-Up-And-Go When You Need It

In a time when many crossovers are switching use standard four-cylinder engines, it's nice to know that the new Chrysler Pacifica provides something a little different. The standard V6 engine offered in the Pacifica puts out close to 300 horsepower, which helps you in emergency maneuvers and also makes driving more comfortable. While the Toyota Sienna provides a couple more horsepower, during everyday driving, you can't go wrong with either of these vans insofar as power is concerned.

Efficiency: Pacifica Maximizes Your MPGs

Compare the Sienna and Pacifica where efficiency is concerned, and the scale tips more in favor of the Pacifica, especially for highway drivers. The Chrysler offers 18 MPG City/28 MPG highway, while the Sienna offers 19 MPG City/27 MPG highway. If that weren't enough, the Pacifica is the only van to be offered in a plug-in hybrid variant, making it not only more efficient than the Sienna, but also more efficient than most any other minivan.

Price: Pacifica Has the Competition Cornered

The Chrysler Pacifica starts at a competitive $26,995. In contrast, the Toyota Sienna begins at a much-higher $30,750. That's nearly a $4,000 savings, just by choosing the Pacifica! Pricing stays consistently lower throughout trim levels, too, with a top-of line Pacifica Limited beginning at around $43,700, and a top-of-line Sienna Limited Premium AWD running about $48,615 - a nearly $5,000 difference!
