Anyone shopping for a new minivan will likely consider the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica. It’s popular for many reasons, especially its versatility and interior space. There are seven different Pacifica trim levels available, including the hybrid variants. However, only one is the most popular among buyers and is recommended by two significant experts. Buyers and experts agree on the best 2022 Chrysler Pacifica trim, the Pacifica Touring L.

According to Edmunds, the most popular 2022 Chrysler Pacifica trim among buyers is the Touring L model. Slotted one spot above the Touring base model, it provides many more features. What’s so good about it that makes customers always want it over other options? A few simple but highly desirable features make the Touring L the most popular version of the minivan. Plus, it remains affordable, starting at $42,720. The price isn’t much higher than the Touring base model, which starts at $38.690.

For example, the Pacifica Touring L gets heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Features like these are simple but very attractive to most buyers. Since it’s the cheapest way to unlock these features, it’s no wonder this is the most popular 2022 Chrysler Pacifica. In addition, every Pacifica uses a 3.6-liter V6 engine making 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. As a result, there’s no reason to spend more for a better engine unless buyers want a hybrid.

Fortunately, experts agree with customers about choosing the best Pacifica. It doesn’t happen very often, but for once, the most popular is the highest recommended version. Edmunds likes the Touring L for a few reasons. “It offers a good mix of standard features for the money. Even better, last year’s Safety Sphere Group package that includes a handful of driver aids is now standard on the Touring L,” the publication said.

Similarly, Car and Driver also agree the Pacifica Touring L is the best option for the minivan. C/D recommends going with it because it offers the best mix of features and value. More importantly, the reviewer mentions experiencing problems with the long-term Pacifica hybrid test vehicle. That’s why C/D thinks sticking with the Touring L and a 3.6-liter V6 is better than a higher trim level.

2022 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L standard features

Buyers and experts agree the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L is the best trim to buy. Mostly, experts cite value and features as the reason it’s the best. What features come standard with the sub-$43,000 minivan? First, it comes with everything included with the Touring base model, which is the following:

  • LED exterior lighting
  • Power liftgate
  • Power-sliding side doors
  • Heated outside mirrors
  • Foldaway second-row seating
  • Three-zone climate control
  • Second-row window sunshades
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Proximity entry with push-button start and remote ignition
  • Power-adjustable driver’s seat
  • 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen
  • Six-speaker audio system

Moreover, all Pacifica models have standard safety features like adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

For just a few thousand dollars extra, the Touring L trim gains all of the following:

  • Second- and third-row window shades
  • Heated front seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Driver’s seat memory settings
  • Leather upholstery
  • Second-row USB charge ports
  • Surround-view camera system
  • Automated parking system
  • Parking sensors with automatic braking

Buyers and experts agree on the best 2022 Chrysler Pacifica trim

In conclusion, it’s surprising that buyers and experts can ever agree on anything. However, two prominent experts, Edmunds and Car and Driver, agree with consumers on the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica. The minivan’s lineup makes it easy to find the best version to buy. Choosing the Touring L trim gets owners the best bang for their buck, and who could disagree with that?
