Pacifica vs. Sienna: Engine Performance

While the starting price on the Sienna is slightly higher than the Pacifica and the engine performance is similar, Lincolnwood-area drivers will get a better fuel economy in a brand new 2020 model.

The Sienna comes standard with a 3.5L V6 engine that delivers 296 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque that's paired with an eight-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with intelligence (ECT-i). The Sienna will get you an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19 mpg in the city.**


The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica comes with the standard with a 3.6L V6 engine that delivers 287 hp, and that's paired with a nine-speed FWD automatic transmission. When behind the wheel, you won't see much difference in engine power, but you will notice that you only get an 18 mpg city fuel economy rating with the new Pacifica.

Pacifica vs. Sienna: Interior Space

When it comes to the interior dimensions and seating, the 2020 Toyota Sienna stands out on top. With seating for up to seven passengers, the Sienna gets you lots of breathing and elbow room, so you're completely comfortable during long car rides.

If you need extra cargo space for exciting summer trips, weekend sporting events with the kids, or carpooling during the school year, the new Toyota Sienna has loads more cargo room than the Pacifica. With the 2020 Sienna, you get 150 cubic feet of cargo space, in comparison to the 140.5 cubic feet of cargo space offered in the 2019 Pacifica.

Pacifica vs. Sienna: Interior Features

The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica has a lot of interior features to offer Chicago-area drivers. Unfortunately, it's no match for the standard features that are available with the Sienna's base model. Both vehicles feature three-zone automatic climate control, a locking glove box - the Sienna has an upper glove compartment and a lockable lower glove compartment-, power windows, tire pressure monitor, and remote keyless entry - the Sienna offers a remote keyless entry system with lock.
