Car & Driver still ranks the Pac #1!

They just tested the 2018 Ody. Wow its fast! 0-60 in 6.6 sec. But overall they still rank the Pac #1, with the Ody #2 and the Sienna #3!

Yeah that 0-60 is fast. I think the Pacifica I have seen from the same publication at 7.3. So it isn't too bad/slow. At least the Pacifica has better lateral grip and supposedly better stopping distance than Honda.

Does that one extra gear really make it that much faster? (they tested the 10 speed - as an aside, we used to call road bikes 10 speeds when I was a kid!)

can't tell if this is a serious question. the answer is no, more gears just mean engine operates within it's power band (see fuel efficiency)

What is the criteria for them rating the Pac #1? Is there a link that breaks that down?

No link you just have to read the two test articles. Unless they do a direct comparo article in the future. But as it is, its a two horse race between the Pac and Ody.

do you believe in this reports? after reading reports and looking to latest JD power initial quality report I think the editors driving other cars then we are.... I stopped to read reports, just go to forums like this at 1st and then test drive.

Ya you have to be carefull. I purchased the car of the year in 1972. A real piece of sh*t. Chevy Vega... Motor Trend car of the year... ya right....
However, car now are all well built and Chrysler put a lot into the Pacifica. $2,600,000.00 US...... should be the number 1

Don't forget that in forums like this one you get a large percentage of the people who have problems. Most of the ''0 problem'' people don't bother posting..

I still will call out any bike with those curled handles a 10 speed. I had one of those heavy bikes with the fake gas tank. My brother had his totally mind blowing cool BMX. But I was the Fonz.

It sure will help it get off the line quicker. It has a lower first gear. Chrysler also really only uses 8 of our 9 speeds most of the time in the Pac. Not sure why they tuned the final drive ratio the way they did. But the Honda has a better launch with a lower overall 1st gear.
