Ordered new Pacifica

Newby, here. My name is Frank. Just ordered 2019 Pac Limited with 8 Pass option. (wanted the 20" wheels) and Advanced Safety Tec. I am retired from Chrysler. Worked in PDO clay studios. I bleed Mopar Blue. Over the years, starting with a '65 Coronet 500, I have had 45 Mopar products in my garage. This will be my 10th Minivan. 1st one was '88 Gr Caravan, last was '14 T&C. I have driven just about every car , Truck, Jeep, SUV we built, in my career. Turning in a '18 Durango RT, which I dearly loved. But my wife has a hardertime getting into and seeing out of the DD, Sowe are back to Minivan. We travel a lot and in my book nothing beats a minivan on the long haul road trip. Thought my minivan days were over, but had experience with one last summer and was surprised how much I liked it. Will be watching this forum for input from others regarding their minivan experience.

Hi Frank,
Welcome! We will need more details please - what color in/out? I am on my second Limited - the first one with 8 passenger and now with 7 passengers. I have the 20" wheels on both and think you made a great choice! I am VERY happy with my Pacifica and believe you will too!
Congrats! John

Hey Frank,

Congratulations on your purchase. Small world I too, many years ago owned a Grand Caravan from the mid 90's and enjoyed the room it provided for cargo and passengers. We currently have a 19 Limited on order with a tow package and the advanced sfety tec. As I understand once it ships from the factory it goes to a 3rd party for the tow package install.

This forum really does provide a wealth of information!

Red Velvet exterior with Deep Mocha interior. I want the 20" wheels strictly for aesthetics, fills up the wheel opening better. Don't need the 8 Pass , but that pkg was no cost, because sunroof was deleted. I would have liked the S pkg but not into all black interior. 1st thing after it is delivered will be a road trip to TX from MI. I expect good fuel economy as my '14 got as much as 29.5 mpg highway.

Even if the Pacifica wasn't a minivan, its still a great car proper. Its hard to beat when you take out the stigma. Welcome to the Club!

Congratulations on your order. It'll be a looker with that combo. We just came back on a road trip with 1200km on the odometer. It was a excellent road trip car. I also have mocha interior with 8 seats. To me, it looked most luxurious out of all the interior choices. Have changed to 22" wheels before the trip as well. The waiting part is hard. Welcome!

I have seen and been involved with many cool projects in my career in the Design studios.

It was a tough call to move from DD RT, to a minivan. But time for a change. My son already teased me that my man card will be taken away.
LOL. But I still have my 11 Charger RT and 73 Charger big block.

Congratulations and welcome to the forum. Itíll be funny to see if your son tries out the Pacifica, likes it, and decides to buy one as well.
