Battle of the Minivan: 2019 Chrysler Pacifica vs 2019 Honda Odyssey

2019 Chrysler Pacifica

Find the right vehicle for your family by visiting Kearny Mesa Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM. The award-winning 2019 Chrysler Pacifica offers the ideal combination of storage versatility, performance, safety, and in-car technology. We feel the choice is clear, but we also understand you have options. That’s why we’re here to help you through the process by comparing our Chrysler minivan to one of its top competitors, the 2019 Honda Odyssey.



Named the 2018 Family Car of the Year by, the Chrysler Pacifica is simply a smart choice. Our California Chrysler dealers know you will love the configurable interior with Stow n’ Go® seating and storage system, which provides you the option of storing both the second and third rows, quickly turning your minivan into a cargo hauler.


A worthy challenger, the 2019 Honda Odyssey offers similar interior configurability, but with a couple of important differences. If you want extra cargo space, the second row in the Honda Odyssey must be completely removed, instead of simply being stored in the floor like in the Chrysler Pacifica.




When it comes to power, the Chrysler Pacifica proves to have the upper hand. The standard 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 generates an impressive 287 horsepower and has muscle to tow up to 3,600 lb. Along with the power comes efficiency with 28 MPG on the highway. If you want to take fuel savings to another level, consider the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid and its total driving range of 566 miles.


Performance numbers are similar in the Honda Odyssey, but it does fall a bit short with 280 horsepower and a maximum 3,000 lb towing capacity. Fuel efficiency is also similar, however, there is no hybrid option for the Honda minivan.




When it comes to innovative technology, the Chrysler Pacifica leads the way with standard driver assistance safety features in all six trim levels. You will also appreciate the standard seven-inch touchscreen and optional 360-degree surround view camera.


Regarding safety in the Honda Odyssey, there is a suite of driver assistance features available as well, but you need to move up from the base level to obtain it. Technology also falls a bit short in the entry-level model, as a five-inch color LCD screen comes standard.


In more ways than one, the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica comes out on top when put head-to-head with the 2019 Honda Odyssey.
