Have an idea to improve the Pacifica? Maybe a bit of a redesign, or added features or gadgets, or maybe just a few additional color choices? Well, this is the place to let Chrysler know what you think would do the job.
#2 of 40 another engine change

PLEASE PLEASE give me a choice of a diesel engine in the 2008 model!
I'd LOVE to get one with the same MB engine being used in all of their SUVs this coming year (R320cdi, GL320cdi, ML320cdi).
If the Pacifica doesn't have this option, I'm going to have to do something drastic like spend $57k on the R320cdi come September 2008 when our Pacifica's lease is up.

So you'd spend $20-30k more for a vehicle to save $1k/year in fuel costs?
I think a lot of people would like a 7 passenger version, 2nd row bench and the rear seat. A little more headroom and legroom in the third row would be welcome, but the biggest thing is more cargo space behind the third row.

nah. there is more to it than that, of course.
If it was a diesel, I would plan to buy it and keep it for a LOONNGG time. I also firmly believe the resale on a diesel equipped model would be much higher, so you've got that to work into the math, too. It would also be quite a bit more powerful (and not just that 0-60 kind of power, but the real highway passing power that our pacifica lacks).

My Pacifica is impressive in many ways. On the road it is incredible...
Big change needed is a 6 speed transmission and more HP. Of course a Hemi would be terrific.
Also why arent the controls on the steering wheel lighted? I rented a cheap Saturn last weekend and the controls were lit. I bet the lights are in the steering wheel already but they just didnt get wired.

Your request has already been answered with the '07 Pac.

I would like to see Paris Hilton sitting in my passenger seat. Especially when I pull up to the gas pump.

Had an '04 Pac; just finished 1st month with new '07 Pac. The new 4.0L w/ 6-speed trans is a night vs day improvement. This is the powertrain that the car should have been born with!
#9 of 40 End of the line for the Pacifica?

Rumors in the Detroit Free Press suggest that the next generation of the Pacifica has been canceled. Anyone know more?

From the Car Connection:
The Chrysler Pacifica crossover could be headed for the scrap heap, if reports from the Detroit Free Press pan out. The paper reports that all work on the replacement for the Pacifica has been stopped by Chrysler. The project, code-named CT, was to make its production debut in 2009. The project could merely be on hold, the Free Press speculates, as Chrysler tries to mitigate its losses this year after a third-quarter red ink flow of $1.5 billion. The Pacifica was an early entrant into a market that is now overflowing with vehicles like the Mitsubishi Outlander, Ford Edge, and Saturn Outlook.
