SUV? Minivan? What is it?

There was an article in my local newspaper about a Pacifica that had been in a single car accident. Several times they referred to it as an SUV.

Newspapers are often wrong on the details. Reporters donít seem to be experts on much. When I read articles about subjects I have some knowledge on, Iím frequently disappointed.

What year was the Pacifica involved in the accident? The previous model that used the Pacifica name can be considered an SUV.

2004 to 2008 Chrysler had a "Pacifica" crossover. That could be source of confusion.

among others:
1975 Plymouth Valiant
1989 Plymouth Voyager
2005 Chrysler T&C

It doesn't give the year but there's a photo. It's a 2017 or newer.

Yes, it looks like a wagon but so doesn't the Subaru Outback which is referred to as an SUV. I think the Pacifica was referred to as a crossover utility vehicle. But these are all just marketing terms.

To clarify, by "Pac" you mean a 2017-2019 Pacifica minivan, yes? Above they're taking about the unrelated 2004-2008 Pacifica crossover SUV. Maybe the news reporter looked up "Chrysler Pacifica" and that's what they found first.

To all too many, if it it isn't a sedan, or a pickup truck, it's an Ass-u-Vee.
