Many reporters get many facts wrong if you are knowledgable on a subject that is related to the article.


I call my 2017 pacifica a car cause I basically treat it like a 1976 pontiac catalina I swapped a 455 pontiac engine into. Car was 4 door landyacht with a trunk big enough for 5 bodies maybe, never really tested that concept but big trunk. 2 bench seats could haul 6 without trying and if you were motivated many more could fit.


Cool as the 455 pontiac was, awesome engine and torque and blah blah blah, I can't really fault my minivan v6 with 280 some horsepower. Especially when it knocks down 28mpg for a trip.


I bought the pacifica partly cause it looking unlike the generic minivan I picture in my head when someone says minivan. The dodge grand caravan or the nissan whatever and some of the others just really scream minivan.


Pacifica is more a blob.

The current one is. The issue is they used the Pacifica name from an SUV they used to make and that caused this poor journalist to be confused.

What I might instead question is whether the Pacifica is a 'minivan' or 'van'?

Its a minivan.

A "van" denotes a fullsized van or a commercial type van.
