Hello,

I would like to buy a used Pacifica Limited, but the ones I have found did not have the Advanced Safety group option, which I really want. Does anybody know if it can be taken to the dealership and get it installed there?

Thanks

...keep looking. The cost of doing this would be VERY expensive.

Well, they can't swap radio from RA3 to RA4 (simple swap) and you are talking about cameras, sensors, controls etc. Not possible for sure. Keep looking, you will find what you looking for.

I asked the same thing. To install it after the fact would prohibitively expensive as they'd have to take the car apart. The parts department didn't even offer it as something i could purchase after the fact.

If i could do it all over again, I'd 1) not buy a Chrysler 2) if i did buy the Pacifica again, I'd definitely wait for one with the advanced safety tech package.

Thank you to everybody. It makes sense. I will consider a new Pacifica Touring L asking for the pack from the factory. Alternatively, I will consider Honda Odyssey which offers the same package standard for EX (second least expensive trim) and up. Or perhaps the Sienna 2018, standard in all trims.

I chose a honda odyssey ex-l in 2017 because the pacificas were brand new and dealers were adding ridiculous prices to the msrp. Now I can not wait to sell my Hond and get a Pacifica with the advanced safety package, sunroof and stow and go. Very tired of lifting very heavy seats and leaving them in my garage if I need extra space at anytime, let alone always having to plan in advance. Furthermore Honda has the basic Safety features, but nothing like the advanced safety package. Just thought I'd give you a different perspective.

I agree with everyone. The Advanced Safety Package cannot be retrofitted into the Pacifica. Requires a radar sensor, new lower grill, new windshield for lane assist feature, surround cameras requires swapping out body side mirrors and front grill, also required adding a motor to the steering wheel and brakes, requires a compatible u-connect, additional buttons for parking assist features, etc. I am pretty sure I missed a few components to complete the conversion. So short answer is no it cannot be added later.

Another thing a lot of people dont fully understand is the tow package. Yes a town hitch is cheap to get from U-Haul, but it not the same as the Tow Package on the Pacifica. The tow package not only includes the the factory installed town hitch with electrical connection but also includes a heavy duty radiator, an upgraded alternator (if you dont already have uconnect theatre) and a beefier rear suspension all of which are needed to meet the 3600lb tow rating.
