Chrysler Pacifica vs. Toyota Sienna

The 2018 Toyota Sienna is an excellent minivan with the practical features that appeal to many prospective buyers. But how does it measure up to the top-rated 2018 Chrysler Pacifica?

Drivers in Chittenden County, South Burlington and St. Albans can see how these two capable minivans measure up with our side-by-side comparison.


The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is equipped with a 287-horsepower V-6 that shuttles power to the front wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission. This engine is smooth and strong, effortlessly moving the considerable weight of the Pacifica. Few vehicles can compete with its exceptional ride quality, composed handling and confident feel.

The Toyota Sienna comes with a 296-horsepower V-6 that transfers power to the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. This engine is powerful and the transmission is smooth, though it can get reluctant at highway speeds. The ride is quiet as well, though not quite as luxurious as the Pacifica.

Cargo Space

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica has a total of 165 cubic feet of passenger space, 140.5 cubic feet of which is behind the first row. This gives it the best cargo space in the class in it's flat, unobstructed cargo bay. There are also plenty of small storage cubbies throughout the cabin, as well as a deep console bin for the driver.

The real game-changer is the Stow 'n Go seating, which is exclusive to Chrysler. These second-row seats tuck neatly into the floor for a flat cargo area with a simple flip of a lever. Many rivals claim that this compromises the comfort of these seats, though they're just as padded and supportive as the Pacifica's other seats.

The Toyota Sienna has a cavernous interior as well, though it is a bit smaller than that of the Pacifica. The total cargo space is 118 cubic feet, and a sliding second row allows the space to be configured for more cargo.


The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica has everything you could possibly want in a minivan. From premium audio to leather upholstery to a panoramic roof, there's no shortage of options for the Pacifica, and each trim level is well-equipped. A 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration is standard for all models, which offers one of the most user-friendly interfaces and plenty of connectivity apps. Other optional accessories include a pet kennel, a first-aid kit and the exclusive in-vehicle vacuum for easy cleaning.

The Toyota Sienna has plenty of features on the offer as well, but its infotainment system doesn't offer smartphone integration or similar capability. Other convenient features, like the pet kennel and built-in vacuum, can't be found anywhere in the Sienna's lineup either.
