I measured the setback at the thickest portion and it came up to 54.5 inches. You would need car seats that were 18 inches wide or less for three across. Two across and a momma? Maybe outboard, but the middle seat does not have latch.

In comparison, I have a Mazda CX-9 and it measured 48 inches at the same points. I have two 19 inch car seats and I cannot sit on an outboard position at all. I am not that big either. 5'9 185 pounds.

In other minivans, the middle seat slides forward. Not sure if the Pacifica does this. If so, then momma could stay up front and still reach baby.

Father of thing 1, thing 2, thing 3, thing 4 is getting a minivan.
