Seems there are some owners who report an oil change takes 6 quarts, rather than 5 quarts.

Pretty sure I read in my manual mine takes 5 quarts.
Are there some engines that take 6 quarts of oil??????

Carl, do you know what is the reason the similarly configured cars have different MSRP and "Net price" on chrysler.com?

There appears to be a base price and destination charge increase.

Periodically through the year Chrysler may increase the base price and destination charges for vehicles. The lower priced Pacifica had an earlier build date. You can se that there was an increase in the base price and in destination.

Your correct. Your Pacifica is 5 quarts. Some vehicles have larger oil capacities because of the type vehicle and vehicle use and engine size. For example, the Ram 1500 with the 3.6 Pentastar takes 6 quarts. The 5.7 and 6.4 engines are 7 quarts and the 3.0 liter eco diesel is 10.5 quarts

Thanks, Carl. It explains the $250 sticker difference, but where the extra $400 in the "net price" come from?

The net price is actually set by the dealer so it may not reflect the same difference in pricing that the MSRP does.

Carl, the question is why some Pacifica's take 6 quarts (maybe early builds) while others take 5. The owner's manual clearly states 5 but the fact is some have required 6. My Pacifica takes 6 (May 2016 build) as documented by the dealer who did the first oil change. I did the next oil change and replaced with 6. The oil level is right at the full mark on the dip stick. This forum would appreciate an answer as to why and also pin point the build date or VINs for those that require 6.

Thanks for you help.

Yes, this. We know a Pentastar in another application (truck, Jeep, ProVan) can have a bigger pan.
It is also known that a V8, or Diesel in a pickup will take more oil to fill.
We are asking why so many Pacificas with the same engine take either 5 or 6 quarts. Manual says 5.
Why?
