When it comes to the top of the class in today’s minivan segment, there’s some argument among Decatur drivers about who holds the top spot. There are a few contenders, that’s for sure, but two that we’re going to look at today set themselves apart with offerings of powerful engines, luxurious cabin conveniences, and the spacious dimensions you would expect from a successful minivan.

Today our team at Sam Leman Chrysler Jeep Dodge Bloomington will discuss the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica vs. Honda Odyssey. Keep reading to learn more about our comparison and contrast of these two vehicles, and be sure to contact us if you have any questions!

Odyssey or Pacifica: Performance Specs

There’s something undeniably fun about driving a minivan which is already a statement of a vehicle. But, being able to get up to speed on the freeway onramps with gusto in a family-friendly ride is unlike anything else. If you’re looking for such an experience in your next, or first, minivan, you’ll want to note that of the two vehicles we’re talking about, the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica vs. Honda Odyssey. Compare their performance and the Pacifica clearly takes the technical edge:

  • Engine: The Chrysler Pacifica features a 287-hp 3.6L V6 engine. At only a tenth of a liter smaller engine size, the Odyssey produces nearly double digits less in horsepower. Both engines, however, produce a matching 262 lb-ft of torque. 
  • Towing Capacity: Thanks to clever engineering, the Pacifica achieves a 3,600-pound towing capacity, 100 pounds more than the Odyssey.
  • Fuel Economy: A good signal to Champaign drivers that the engineers at both Chrysler and Honda are doing well on fuel economy; the Pacifica and Odyssey both earn an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway rating. That number gets a huge boost when you look at the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid

Odyssey or Pacifica: Feature Highlights 

Neither of these vehicles is lacking in standard and available features. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, heated leather seats – even a built-in vacuum cleaner is shared by both models. Still, though, we think the Pacifica takes the cake and vacuums up the crumbs with the following features that you won’t find on the 2022 Honda Odyssey:

  • Class-exclusive second-row Easy Tilt Seating
  • Class-exclusive hands-free power sliding side doors
  • Class-exclusive Stow ‘n Go® Seating and Storage System
  • Largest dual rear entertainment touchscreens in the segment (Uconnect® Theater)
