The 2008 Chrysler Pacifica is a good example of the first generation of crossover vehicles: handsome, but not as suave as the newest in its class.

The Pacifica doesn't look like anything else on the road

Most reviewers agree that the 2008 Chrysler Pacifica is a good-looking vehicle, but one that’s starting to seem a little stale.

The Pacifica, Chrysler's first crossover vehicle, is "stylish and handsome" according to MyRide.com. They also note that the Chrysler Pacifica "doesn't fit easily in any particular mold." Those who seek a minivan are impressed by its "ease of use, layout and features" while those seeking an SUV will appreciate the car's style most of all. The Pacifica "has a more rugged, appealing (and less socially branding) appearance than most minivans."

In blurring these lines, the Chrysler Pacifica has succeeded, according to Edmunds.com, in appealing to a vast variety of customers. Those who seek a wagon, a minivan, or a sport-utility vehicle could find merit in the Pacifica's overall appearance. This 2008 Chrysler is also more "stylish" and has "better-handling" than the "typical people mover" and still manages to have room for six passengers.

TheCarConnection.com's experts like the Pacifica for its overall shape. The lower height, though, looks a little awkward from some angles, especially when compared to a regular minivan or one of the sleek new crossovers from GM, such as the Buick Enclave. The interior has a better shape and execution than the most recent Chryslers, but is showing some age.

The 2008 Chrysler Pacifica won't woo the die-hard SUVers, nor will it sway minivan aficionados. But those without a specific vehicle preference may find the good looks of the Chrysler Pacifica hard to ignore.

Conclusion

The 2008 Chrysler Pacifica is a good example of the first generation of crossover vehicles: handsome, but not as suave as the newest in its class.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
