Battle of the Vans: 2017 Chrysler Pacifica VS 2017 Honda Odyssey
Well-Priced and Well-Appointed
- What's one of the first places folks look when they want to know about a family car? The price tag, of course! In that case, we'll tackle it right out of the gate: the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica's entry-level trim comes in a full grand under the price of the 2017 Honda Odyssey's entry trim, ($28,595 for the 2017 Pacifica VS $29,850 for the 2017 Odyssey). Speaking of finances, it's also important to know that these two minivans are matched when it comes to both basic warranty and powertrain warranty, each offering a 36-Month/36,000-Mile Basic Warranty and a 60-Month/60,000-Mile Power Trained Warranty.
Engine Size, Power, & Efficiency
- Just because it's a minivan doesn't mean you have to want for power-well, at least if you opt for the 2017 Pacifica. It offers a bigger, more powerful base engine than the 2017 Honda Odyssey, with a 3.6-liter V6 rated at 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, which edges out the Odyssey's 3.5-liter V6 rated at 248 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. This difference in engine capacity and power doesn't necessarily make a huge impact on fuel economy, either, with these two vans tied for combined fuel-economy (city/highway) at 22 mpg.
