I am impressed!

Looks to completely DEFINE my idea of a crossover:

* Car-like driving 3.5-liter SOHC 24-valve V-6 engine; On-demand all-wheel-drive or front-wheel-drive with traction control; Four speed automatic transaxle with AutoStick® ; Independent front/rear suspension.

* Comfort: First-class seating in first and second rows; First and second row buckets with seat mounted armrests, fore-aft adjustment and recline; Second row fold flat capability; Four heated seats; Continuous first and second row center console; 10-way power driver’s seat; 4-way power passenger’s seat; Two driver memory system for radio, driver seat position, mirror position and pedal position.

* Innovation: Infinity Intermezzo theater-style surround-sound digital audio;Navigation system integrated into gauge cluster; Hands-free cellular communication; Dual-zone automatic temperature control with odor/particulate filtration.

* Passenger and Cargo Flexibility: Power liftgate; Fold-flat/tumble second row bucket seats; Third row 50-50 fold-flat bench.

* Total Safety System: On-demand all-wheel-drive or front-wheel-drive with traction control; Four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes; Side curtain airbags in all three rows; Tire pressure monitoring system.

Looks a bit more van-ish than I would like, and might be too low in the driver's seat, but otherwise, quite a competitor.

Looks like something between a wagon and an SUV (not necessarily good or bad).

I kind of like the looks.

Nice feature set.

Chrysler.

But it's still a Chrysler product! :28: :1pat: :bonk: :twak:
They look great, but thats as far as I'll go with regards to what I think of their products.

Integrated Navi into instrument cluster is pretty neat...

Ditto hammerX ! My past experiences with Chrysler products would stop me from even considering it. No matter how good it looked.

I wonder how much influence (if any) the Dailmer arm had on this model? Maybe that could help in the quality department. I too have suffered at the hands of their products, I did however love my Jeep.

It would take a lot to convince me to buy another Chrysler after the unfortunate experience of having owned four mini vans. Yes, I'm a slow learner, I kept believing their PR that they had fixed the problems and the new models were improved and would be OK.

I've read rumors that the Pacifica would have some components from Mercedes-Benz, but the last ones I heard of was that less than 5% of its components would be MB components. One article said its rear suspension was derived from the MB E-class.

However, the current thought is that the new Chrysler Crossfire would have 39% parts from MB, including the engine.

The theory is that MB parts (perhaps second-generation) may filter down to Chrysler, but not up. Of course, with MB's recent history of quality problems, this may not be a good thing (though can Chrysler be any worse)? The Crossfire's engine will be MB's ubiquitous 3.2 liter V6 which has been a very good engine.

I do not like the Navi position at all

My wife and I like being able to see the Navi from the passenger seat; I do not care for the dash placement.

I second the sentiment. Putting the navi screen in the instrument cluster is brain damage.

It is station wagon. I give Chrysler credit for trying. Chrysler once filled a gap between station wagon and cargo vans when they introduced the Minivan. They are again attempting to fill the a gap between station wagon and SUV.
