So Pacifica is getting the ESS (Engine Stop Start). If you have taken delivery of one please post your experience. So far I don't know if anyone hast taken delivery of a Pacifica with ESS yet.

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.

"The system, which can be shut off, works this way:

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
