Anyone who thinks aggressiveness and minivans don’t mix is unfamiliar with how assertive late parents can be behind the wheel when doing something for their kids. Now, customers can give their 2018 Chrysler Pacifica a meaner look to fit their forceful driving demeanor by ordering the new S Appearance Package.
Checking this option box gives the minivan lots of dark accents. The new parts include Gloss Black trim for the grille surround, headlight eyebrows, window surrounds, and rear valance molding. Dark-finished metallic pieces, which Chrysler calls Black Noise, adorn the badges, including the Pacifica and S emblems. These models come standard with dark 18-inch wheels, but a 20-inch version is optional. On a black minivan the tweaks look great, and they would probably provide a good contrast with a brighter color, too.
To match the exterior, the package also overhauls the cabin with dark pieces, including the headliner and visors. The black seats get an S logo, and there’s Light Diesel Gray stitching throughout the interior. Piano Black trim adorns the steering wheel. Meanwhile the instrument panel and door trim are a gunmetal gray shade called Anodized Ice Cave.
The S Appearance Package adds $595 to the price of the Touring Plus, Touring L, Touring L Plus, and Limited trims of the 2018 Pacifica. The 20-inch wheels are an additional $995. The package will be available on the minivan in late fall.
All 2018 Pacifica customers get new tech in their minivan. The SafetyTec driver assistance package is now standard, rather than a $995 option previously. It includes blind spot monitoring, rear cross path detection, and rear parking assist. An upgraded Uconnect 4 infotainment system now supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, too.
