Have never paid attention in my pacifica but when I first got my 2013 I did notice the motor as a loud growl when you stomped on it hard. I must be used to it cause I hove never paid attention now.At the time consumer reports said it was a different sound from the pentstar engine.If you think its not right please have the dealer check it out.I might add it was like a sporty growl. My gm cars never sounded like this but I guess it was fine as I never had any trouble with it and hope my pacifica is as good as that car was.
most of that growl comes from the intake. You would be hard pressed to hear the exhaust note from the drivers seat with all the windows rolled up. Some car companies even have resonators to make this intake sound louder under harder acceleration. Some use mics and amplify it via the cars speakers. No joke.
