In St.George, you see a lot of minivans and If you have children or have ever just wanted a Minivan, this is the place to be. Today we’ll be going over various features, gas mile, entertainment, safety, and those features that are perfect for the little ones. We will be comparing the Chrysler Pacifica Touring, the Honda Odyssey LX, and the Toyota Sienna LE. We will compare the base model of each van and also go over some premium features. 



The Chrysler Pacifica Touring comes in with a starting MSRP of $35,045. The Pacifica Touring comes in Front-Wheel-Drive, and for $3,000 more, it comes in an All-Wheel-Drive option.

The Toyota Sienna LE is an All-Wheel-Drive Hybrid with a starting price point of $34,460. However, you could go with the Toyota Sienna Platnum that comes with recliners in the back seats and a refrigerator in the back seat.

Fuel Efficiency 

The Chrysler Pacifica Touring has a standard Miles Per Gallen of 19 in the city and 28 on the highway. The Chrysler Pacifica does, however, come in a hybrid. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Touring as of right now, that information has not been released, but we’re sure it’s a lot. 

The Honda Odyssey LX gets 19 Miles per gallon in the city, 28 on the highway, and a combined of 22 miles per gallon. With the Honda Odysseys, this is the range for each trim. 

The Toyota Sienna LE are Hybrids, which puts sienna at a bit of an unfair advantage. The Toyota Sienna LE has an estimated 36 miles per gallon in the city, 36 miles per gallon on the highway, and a combined of 36. That’s pretty impressive, and that is consistent through all the trims as well.

Some of these base-level trims might not come with screens in the backseat, but many of these features can be added.  To make your life easy, the Chrysler Pacifica Touring can come with the Stow ‘N Vac, an easy access vacuum.

The Uconnect has also equipped with games right on it, anything from backseat bingo to checkers and even the license plate game. Your kids will love the interactive features from the Uconnect Theater. The Uconnect can also answer the age-old question. “Are we there yet?” it does this by using the Are We There Yet app that gives your passengers the remaining time of your drive as well as estimated arrival time. And don’t worry, you still have total control of the Uconnect Theater from the front, so if you have to mute the system or power it off for any reason, you can.
