FCA Announces Pricing on the Chrysler Pacifica’s for its 35th Anniversary Edition Models
When Dodge created the Caravan, in 1984, it was the sensation at the time, making it the demise of the station wagon. It was the preeminent family hauler at the time. Thirty-five years later, the Dodge Caravan is side by side with the Chrysler Pacifica, but these two couldn’t be any more different today.
Even casual consumers will likely be familiar with the auto industry adage that SUVs are all the rage in the U.S., But despite the trends in family-hauling favorites, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles remains one of the holdout manufacturers still supporting a traditional body style: the minivan. In honor of its coral anniversary, FCA has announced 35th Anniversary Editions for the Chrysler Pacifica, Pacifica Hybrid and Dodge Grand Caravan.
These 35th Anniversary Editions are available exclusively that aren’t the plain Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager that the Chrysler first introduced. The Grand Caravan was added to the Dodge lineup in May of 1987. The Chrysler Pacifica was in 2004, and it wasn’t even a minivan until its reincarnation for the 2017 model year (where it promptly won our Best of 2017 award and has subsequently been an undefeated Family Car of the Year).
A lot has happened between the introduction of the Caravan, Voyager and the hybrid variant of the Pacifica. FCA remains committed to the minivan form. In celebration of the 35th anniversary,
It’s available on the Pacifica Touring L for $2,015 (plus destination fee), which also adds Mopar overhead DVD, 18-inch wheels, and eight-passenger seating. On the Touring L Plus, the package costs $1,420 (plus destination fee) while adding a dual-pane sunroof, and eight-passenger seating. For the Limited it adds 20-inch wheels.
On the Pacifica Hybrid Touring L, the package is $1,390 (plus destination fee), also adding the Premium Audio Group pack and its 13 Alpine speakers, Uconnect 4C with navigation, and 17-inch wheels. The 35th Anniversary Edition pack for the Hybrid Limited trim is $695 and also adds 18-inch wheels.

The package for the SXT costs $1,595 (plus destination fee), and it has the Driver Convenience Group—heated front seats, heated steering wheel, navigation, and second-row window shades. While the Chrysler Pacifica replaced the old Town & Country for the 2017 model year, the Dodge Grand Caravan has soldiered on unchanged since 2008. It’s crazy to think an 11-year-old minivan would still be around today, but Dodge has had great success continuing to sell aging vehicles on ancient platforms.

It continues being the leader with 55 percent market share in 2018 – the highest ever attained. FCA US invented the modern minivan for the 1984 model year with the Plymouth Voyager and Dodge Caravan.
