Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chrysler Pacifica offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Sienna, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chrysler Pacifica and the Toyota Sienna.

Convenience
With the Toyota Sienna, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chrysler Pacifica, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Chrysler Pacifica or the Toyota Sienna, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chrysler Pacifica is much higher than that for the Toyota Sienna.

Dimensions
The Chrysler Pacifica is a little wider than the Toyota Sienna, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Chrysler Pacifica takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Sienna.

Handling
The Chrysler Pacifica has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Sienna, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chrysler Pacifica will do just as well as the Toyota Sienna, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler Pacifica greatly out-muscles the Toyota Sienna.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chrysler Pacifica does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Sienna.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chrysler Pacifica and the Toyota Sienna. With the Chrysler Pacifica, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Sienna.

Warranty
The Chrysler Pacifica comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Sienna.
