Chrysler's crossover wagon is large -- as long as the biggest sedan and equally wide, with a prominent hood and broad grille consuming the face between corner clusters of projector-style headlamps.
It has lots of doors -- a pair of portals on each flank plus a top-hinged liftgate at the rear. Inside there are up to three rows of seats with individual buckets for rows one and two and a split bench in back that cradles two comfortably or three in a pinch.
For 2005 Chrysler builds three versions of Pacifica. The base edition installs seats for five on two rows. Pacifica Touring offers space for six configured in 2+2+2 layout. Both models also appear with front-wheel-drive (FWD) or on-demand AWD traction. Top model Pacifica Limited comes with AWD traction solely and luxury goods in a cab rigged for three tiers. Standard engine for FWD Pacifica is a 3.8-liter V6, while AWD Pacifica stocks a 3.5-liter V6 tuned to 250-hp.
