These are a couple features I would like added to my Pacifica Hybrid:

1) Ability to turn on and off the Backup Camera while driving forward. This feature would improve rear visibility, particularly when the interior is filled with packages that are obstructing the view through the rearview mirror.

2) The onboard camera's to have the ability to be turned on and act as a "DashCam", making recordings to a USB drive.

What features would you like to have added?

Let's talk about the software features that realistically could be added to the existing vans.
Just off the top of my head :
Separate fuel consumption in electric and gas modes
More fuel consumption statistics- averages over long periods of time
More customization for uConnect- ability to add buttons to the "settings" screen, start on the screen of your choice every time. I need to push 3 buttons just to see the map.
Speed limit display in the cluster
Remember the position of the movies from USB (this is really inexcusable for 2018)
Games graphics that don't look like they came from Windows 95

LED headlights as options, and HIDs across the board.
Paddles to “kick up” engine RPM for passing, etc...
Switch to turn off or force EV mode.

Stow and go seats! I realize the batteries use the space, but without being able to store the middle row seats without having to remove them was the deal breaker. We haul large stuff a lot more than we haul people.

I have simpler needs. Unexpected things missing from our 2018 PacHy Limited; drivers seat position memory, Android Auto and Apple Carplay, Qi standard charging pad, dealership updatable software...

Paddle or normal switch to quickly change D-L. I keep my hand on the shifter now.
Record cameras to USB
LED Lights
EV Switch to enable/disable EV

Mocnarf, I did manage to accidentally enable the birds-eye and forward/reverse cameras for forward driving this past weekend. I'll see if I can duplicate this and let you know.

To Start with, why not at least offer all the features of the limited where possible ie (Stow and Go mid seating not with standing)

I've been looking at this vehicle for our family and was surprised to see in this post that the engine can turn on when plugged in. Is that just a typo or am I misunderstanding what was written? Seems like it would be bad if you plug it in your garage and the engine randomly turns one while charging. Thanks!

<I was referring to post 6, should have quoted it, sorry about that>

Only if you leave it "ON" otherwise, no it won't just randomly turn the engine on when plugged in.

What @Breezy was suggesting in post 6 was an option to allow the Pac to be remote "started" when plugged in to pre-warm the cabin in cold weather without having the engine run. As it is now, if you would like to warm it up before you depart, there is no option to prevent the engine from starting even if it is plugged in. It would be nice to be able to warm it up in your garage using house current and have the ability to prevent the engine from running. Right now, the Pac will start the engine if it thinks it needs to when it is remote started, and that presents a potential hazard for those who have it parked in their garage.

thanks @Norbert and @seo68 - That makes a lot of sense. Hopefully those changes will come out in the future.

We look forward to being able to take our whole family around town using only electric miles!

All Wheel Drive. I don't know if other vans have it or not and I'm sure it's not something that's easy to do but man it would be nice. It probably isn't that import to folks in the Southern States but it's really nice to have here up North. If I didn't have my truck (4x4) I probably wouldn't have made the purchase only because of that.

I'm not sure about the Hybrid but on the Limited if you go into the apps menu and go to the last page there is a surround camera app that allows you to turn on camera at any time. We still have to wait on the the dash cam though!

A way to open windows with the remote (as my 2005 odyssey...)
