8 Passenger Seat & Sunroof

So I know the combination of 8 passengers and the panoramic sunroof hasn't been available before, but the dealer just tried ordering a new Limited from the factory and this was what he saw. He could not select the 8 passenger & 20" wheel group (with sunroof delete). He was able to select just 8 passenger and sunroof was NOT deleted. Car stays with the standard 18" rims. Looks like there's hope for people who want both?? The MSRP increased by $395 over the original package, which is $100 less than adding just 8 passenger seating in other trims.

Can't say for sure if this is accurate till the car shows up, but maybe they figured out how to make the sunroof work with the seat belt in the ceiling?? Or it's a new feature for the 2020 model?

I believe this to be accurate. I recently picked up a Limited with 8 Pass because I wanted the 20" wheels. ( at no cost ). Had to sacrifice the sunroof, (was disappointed). I ordered my Pacifica thru co cars. Just the other day I was on cocars website and noticed that now one could order 8 pass and get sunroof, but there is a cost. 20" wheels now can only be had at extra cost. Combined is about extra $1200. They must have figured a way to reanchor the seatbelt due to popular demand. Still a 2019 BTW.

I dont see a way to do on chrysler's website. Maybe the dealer system / cocar system has a bug or maybe they always had a way to do this but people didn't realize it. I doubt they would have made the change within a model year.

This is good news. I was surprised that they couldn't figure out 8 passengers without deleting the sunroof in the first place.

I also didn't understand why the 20" wheels had to be tied to the 8 passenger package. Maybe they wanted to make up for lack of sunroof by throwing in the fancy wheels? But I actually prefer the look of the polished 18" wheels, so I found it frustrating that I couldn't get an 8 passenger Limited with polished wheels.

I ordered my Limited end of March configured as I said. Picked it up May 2. I noticed the change on cocars ordering website just the other day. Thought it strange, but they do things like that from time to time. It is not configured on Chrysler dealer ordering website. I just checked cocars. They blocked out 8 pass and 20" wheels. so you cannot order it like that anymore. It is as I said in above post. You get 8 pass and sunroof for @$400. 20" wheels are extra, @$900. They also added a 35th anniversary pkg which has wheel pkg and some trim additions. My guess is that these changes will find their way to dealer ordered vehicles in the near future.

If anyone does get this would you be willing to post a picture of how the seat belt attaches for the 8th seat? This is EXACTLY what I want and would pay to get out of mine now to get it.
Thanks, John

Am I one of the few that actually do *not* want/need a sunroof...? To me, that was a downside of the Limited I got.
I open it once or twice a year... and even then, it's really not for more than a few minutes. I paid $$$ to have the ceramic film put on them to keep the interior cooler. Would prefer a solid roof. (but maybe that's just me)
