2018 Chrysler Pacifica vs 2018 Chevy Tahoe

2018-Chrysler-Pacifica-Kendall-Dodge-Chrysler

If you’re looking for a large vehicle for you and your family to use regularly, versatility and space are important. We’re going to examine the size, price, and performance features of two large family vehicles, the spacious and modern 2018 Chrysler Pacifica and the strong 2018 Chevy Tahoe.

Pricing

Price is important and usually the first thing any potential car owner wants to know. The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica L (base model) is nearly half the price ($26,995 (plus destination fee)) of the price of the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe LS (base model) ($47,500 (plus destination fee)). With that being said, let’s see if the extra cost for the Chevy Tahoe makes sense if you’re looking for a vehicle for your family.

Interior Space

Interior space is important when deciding between these two vehicles. The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe has available seven or eight passenger seating, depending on the options selected. The standard setup on the Chevy Tahoe seats eight passengers and it consists of  a second-row 60/40 split-bench seat and a 60/40 split-bench third-row seat. The Tahoe is also available with second-row bucket seats, and that option reduces the vehicle’s seating capacity to seven people. If both rows of the rear seats are folded down, consumers get 15.3 cubic feet of cargo room, 51.7 cubic feet with the third row down and owners can make use of 94.7 cu. ft. of cargo space when all rows are down.

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica also provides seating for seven or eight passengers as well. The minivan comes standard with second-row bucket seats and a standard third-row bench seat, but buyers can opt for three passenger seats in both the second and third rows as well. The Chrysler Pacifica is equipped with Stow ‘n Go seating which makes it easy for users to fold the vehicle’s seats into build-in storage compartments to make room for cargo when needed. The Pacifica has 32.3 cubic feet of storage in the trunk, and 87.5 cargo space with the third row down and when the second- and third-row seats are folded down there’s 140.5 cubic feet of cargo space.

Interior Entertainment

The difference between the infotainment options between the Chevy Tahoe and Chrysler Pacifica is considerable as the 2018 Pacifica provides more advanced options.

The 2018 Chevy Tahoe has an available 10-speaker Bose audio system, which is 10 speakers less than the available 20-speaker Harman Kardon Premium Surround Sound System offered in the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica.

The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe has Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system that provides an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The available rear entertainment system offered by Chevy includes digital headphones, a drop-down screen that includes an HDMI connection to play anything on the drop-down screen when connected.

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is available with the Uconnect Theater Package and it has some advantages that the Chevy Tahoe doesn’t offer. From wireless streaming, WiFi is available throughout your minivan. The Uconnect Theater Package also comes with two 10.1-inch HD touch screens with Blu-Ray players and wireless headphones that let users listen to what is playing on the HD touchscreens and other passengers to listen the radio. Standard Dual HDMI inputs, wireless streaming and even games that anyone in the back seats can play are remarkable features that can entertain for hours on end.

Powertrain Differences

The 2018 Chevy Tahoe is available with two V8 engine options, a base 5.3-liter with 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque and the optional 6.2-liter with 420 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque.

While the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica has loads of entertainment options for passengers, the powertrain isn’t as strong by comparison against the Tahoe. However, every Chrysler Pacifica model is equipped with a strong 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine.

Fuel Economy

Looking for remarkable gas mileage? 18 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway provided by the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is better than the 16 city and 26 highway mpg offered by the 2018 Chevy Tahoe, and fuel economy is even lower when the Tahoe is equipped with the 6.2-liter V8 engine (14/22 MPG). When all things considered between price, infotainment options and fuel economy there’s only one choice here.

chrysler-pacifica-s-Kendall-Dodge-Chrysler

Chrysler 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 Engine: Versatility and Reliability

pentastar-kendall-dodge

Not every engine is versatile enough to end up in multiple vehicles, ranging from sedans to vans and trucks, but that’s what makes Chrysler’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine different from the rest. A trusted, resourceful engine that has won awards and accolades, we will explain exactly what makes the 3.6L engine so well received.

A History of the Chrysler 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 Engine

When this engine was first introduced in 2011, the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 24-valve dual overhead engine was noted for having VVT (variable valve timing) a new technology that adjusts the timing of the intake/exhaust valves to improve the engine’s efficiency, as such, this implemented technology has remained a mainstay across many vehicles.

All Pentastar engines have an open deck design, with four oil return holes below the head bolt holes. There are only two head designs, two intake manifolds and one set of internal components. The increase in horsepower is due to a more aggressively designed intake air system which increases air flow.

 

Which Vehicles Have the Pentastar V6 engine?

Drivers can find the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine in the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica, the spacious and fuel efficient minivan and has been awarded as the “Family Car of the Year” for the second year in a row by Cars.com.  

Since 2011, Dodge has supplied their Charger, Challenger, Durango, Grand Caravan, Journey models with the Pentastar V6 engine to power their vehicles.

In the latest 2018 Dodge Charger, you’ll find a vehicle that doubles down on performance and provides drivers with a sharp handling, comfortable ride with highly respectable 19 city and 30 highway MPG. Similarly, the 2018 Dodge Challenger has widespread appeal for menacing speed and produces the same MPG as the aforementioned 2018 Dodge Charger.                                                                                

The world at large has long since fallen in love with Dodge muscle cars and today’s crop of muscle is better than ever before, in large part due to the powerful Pentastar 3.6-liter engine.

With the sporty, fast and powerful 2018 Dodge Durango drivers have a great option for a wonderful SUV that is spacious and capable of towing 6,200 pounds with the Pentastar 3.6-liter engine.

Few minivans are as popular as the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan and few are as spacious. The highly affordable minivan option of the 2018 Dodge Journey has decent fuel economy and the six-way power driver’s seat is ideal for long trips on the road.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler has adventure written all over it and provides a unique ride, with so many combinations of adjustable exterior looks, outstanding suspension, capable of off-roading and handling almost any terrain with proper modifications. and of course the Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine since 2012.

The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee provides drivers with a superior luxury in a super tough SUV. This vehicle boasts a sleek exterior, with a comfortable and spacious ride for all parties.

Owners of the 2018 Ram 1500 can admit since 2013, the Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine matches the toughness of the most powerful Ram 1500 ever built.

Where Can I Drive Any of these Vehicles?

Look no further than Kendall Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram for all of these vehicles, both new and pre-owned vehicles ready to go. Stop by for a test drive and we’ll work with you for any trade ins, leasing or buying with our finance department.

Engine Comparison

The two engines available on the Chrysler 300 are a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 292 horsepower and a larger 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine that cranks out 363 horsepower. Both engines are paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and buyers have the option of rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. The 3.6-liter gives the Chrysler 300 a fuel economy of 19 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway and the 5.7-liter engine averages 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.

The K900 is available with a 311-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 and a 420-horsepower 5.0-liter V8. The Kia K900 is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, and it is only available with front-wheel-drive.
