When looking for a minivan, there are certain categories to focus on: space, tech, and safety. See how the Chrysler Pacifica compares to the Dodge Caravan in each of them:

Space and Comfort

The Chrysler Pacifica has a huge cabin that can fit up to eight people. Standard features include heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and cloth upholstery. You can also opt for ventilated front seats, a heated second row, and leather upholstery. The Dodge Caravan only fits seven people.


These days, a family van has to be tech-friendly, and the Chrysler Pacifica comes with an assortment of advanced features. These include:

  • Wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®
  • Satellite radio
  • Push-button start
  • A 10.1-inch touchscreen
  • Bluetooth
  • Keyless entry
  • Three USB ports
  • A six-speaker stereo
  • Remote start

You can also get wireless device charging, navigation, and a rear-seat entertainment system with two 10.1-inch touchscreens. This system comes preloaded with games and lets you stream movies and TV. Other than an infotainment system with a small 6.5-inch touchscreen, you won’t find many standard tech features in the Dodge Caravan.


The Chrysler Pacifica was built with safety in mind. It comes with an array of components to help keep you and your passengers safe, such as:

  • Lane keep assist
  • A rearview camera
  • Blind spot monitoring
  • Rear parking sensors
  • Lane departure warning
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Forward collision warning
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Automatic emergency braking

You won’t find any of those features in the Dodge Caravan.

As you can plainly see, the Chrysler Pacifica is far and away the better minivan. If you’d like to see how it performs out on the road, just visit Jake Sweeney Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM in Cincinnati.
