I've only seen one member report that they've received a Pacifica with ESS so far ( @nick ). I'm sure the floodgates will open with more reports soon.

I am glad that my Pacifica doesn't have this function.

I'm reserving judgement until I hear more reports from the field. If it's just like the Cherokee's ESS system, I'll be glad my Pacifica doesn't have it. If it's a little more refined, and does indeed save gas, I may be disappointed that I didn't end up with it. But I don't feel strongly enough either way that it would have swayed my purchasing decision.

Adding nothing useful to the discussion, I've got a limited on order for about a month now. Got the window sticker a day or two ago and see that ESS is listed as being installed. Goes with an "auxiliary" battery, but no further info.
I know people driving BMWs with their version of it installed who were less than thrilled with it. OTOH, and much to my wife's dismay, I often turn off my car while sitting at some of our obscenely long lights. I may well revise my opinion when (if?) my new van arrives, but I'm kind of jazzed with the concept of ESS. Hope reality doesn't deflate too badly...

I had post a few posts on the details of this system. I am curious to see if it is indeed Johnson Control's ESS system. They have regenerative braking that charges up a battery for aux use when stopped at a stop light This might be apart of that second battery. I also know that the ESS bypasses the starter and gives the car an electric start of sorts. I am tired, do not recall all the details, but it gives a quicker start. They also have an alternator that decouples when battery is done charging. I'll have to find those posts and put them here.

With that said, at first I was against this, but now that I have done my research, I am excited (like standing in line for Star Tours at Disneyland) to see how well it works. I ordered mine Feb. 2nd. with Quick order 27J (ESS).

A sun roof and ESS were on my list of do not buy a car with those options. There were other options I did not need, but those two were show stoppers.

There are plenty of pre ESS Pacifica's out there. 8 passenger (deletes sunroof, adds 20" rims) are available. There may also be a chance that you can still order "Quick package 25J" which is the non ESS engine. At least it showed up as an option to click when I was ordering mine.

Or you can just get the ESS system and turn it off.

When the minivan stops, fuel flow is cut; higher-capacity batteries maintain in-cabin systems.
When the brake pedal is released, the engine restarts and the transmission is engaged." 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivans: Hybrid and gasoline engine and transmission

But if you really don't want it to function at all, you'll have to turn it off every time you get in the car.
