After the 2021 facelift, new 2022 Chrysler Pacifica will continue its journey. This time, we can expect smaller upgrades in basically every category. There is still room for improvements, but nothing major will happen. Whatsoever, Chrysler finally made all-wheel-drive available. Moreover, a hybrid powertrain is already in the offer.
New 2022 Pacifica should gain more tech and minor visual upgrades. On top of that, the manufacturer will deliver new exterior paints. Still, we are hoping to see more interior color schemes or some sort of special edition. Performance-wise, Pacifica will largely remain.
2022 Pacifica Exterior Refreshments
The all-new 2022 Chrysler Pacifica is about to get mid-cycle exterior refreshments. Hybrid version will look the same as the regular model. This minivan will continue to ride on its current platform and mechanically, everything is a carryover. Furthermore, Pacifica will arrive with the same shape as before. This model comes with a sleek appearance and is one of the leaders in the segment in many categories. Exterior design is surely one of them.
For such a reliable family van, aerodynamics are quite impressive. Previous version arrived with new LED lighting system, restyled front fascia and redesigned rear. Now, the only changes we are going to see is the slightly wider grille and small modifications on the bumpers. Moreover, we can expect two or three new exterior color options.
Interior Gets Minor Improvements
The interior of the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica will gain small updates as well. Pacifica minivan still offers one of the best cabins in the segment. Again, hybrid and regular version will look exactly the same. Chrysler provides plenty of standard features. However, real luxury is available on the range-topping trim levels exclusively. For 2022, Pacifica will get more features, mostly driver-assistance aids. The rest of the cabin will remain or you can expect really minor changes.
One of the best parts about Pacifica minivan is its optional packages. For instance, the S Appearance Package offers a blacked-out interior. On the other hand, Red Appearance Package offers red Nappa leather upholstery with contrast stitching. There will be five different interior color schemes. However, Chrysler will most likely drop some of the schemes and offer a new one. There will be room for seven or eight passengers.
Gasoline and Hybrid Specifications
Regular gasoline model will use a 3.6-liter V6 that delivers 287 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. This model recently introduce all-wheel-drive system for the first time in history.

You can charge Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid via a 240-volt outlet in less than two hours. This minivan provides 32 miles of all-electric range. Moreover, the gasoline engine is rated at 30 mpg combined.
