Pacifica vs 2018 Odyssey

Here's a nice comparison of the Pac vs Ody. Spoiler alert: They pick the Pacifica! For all the reason we love the Pacifica.

It is about time someone actually reviewed the vehicles in as close to the same exterior color as possible. Give the viewer a good ability to check out the lines of the van whithout being swayed by color.

A couple of the reviewers points werenít accurate but nice review overall.

Having watched quite a number of reviews of these two vehicles, I found this review one the best if not the best. Having owned two Odyssey minivans prior to our Pacifica, I cannot argue with any of the observations and findings. The review of course doesn't cover life-cycle cost as it relates to overall reliability which will only be visible in hindsight.

Doug DeMuro: 2018 Ody Elite the BEST

I painfully watched all 25 mins of Doug DeMuro's review (posted yesterday) of the 2018 Odyssey Elite. Ok so I skipped portions here and there but I watched most of it. He has over 1.3 million subscribers on YouTube.

I kept thinking: has he even sat in a loaded Pacifica? Wow, 19" wheels! LOL

I watched this as well, been trying to get him come and review our 2018 limited hybrid.

led headlights ,inside Camera, voice thing was cool. Rest of it seemed out dated...even the switches and key fob seemed out dated.

2018 Odyssey Elite is nice, but I must agree, compared to a loaded Pacifica Limited it still doesnít stack up. Most comparison reviews agree with this. Would the Odyssey be the safer bet in overall reliability? A good chance sure, but some of us donít want the same old. I mean, you still canít get a pano roof in the Odyssey....it still has those old school incandescent interior lights, literally exactly out of the previous gen Odyssey. Adaptive cruise kicks off at like 25 mph, I mean geez that was like first gen acc from 2011 did that lol. Even though I like that they went with a digital gauge cluster in the Odyssey, overall I do not like it. Kind of cartoonish looking and very limited info compared to the pages and pages of useful info in the Pacificaís. I like the new Odyssey, but the Pacifica just has more to offer hands down.

The Odyssey uses the Pacifica Transmission. Also a fun fact, that transmission was first used in a Jeep Cherokee and was the first 9 speed transmission in a mass produced car.

You must be talking about the lower trims of Odyssey. The touring and elite use the 10 speed Honda transmission and it seems like that is going to be available across all trims in near future. Chrysler had enough time to research and fine tune the ZF 9 speed that the shifts are butter smooth now.
