In 2018 a new trim has been added to the Chrysler Pacifica model lineup. It’s called the L trim and it is the new entry-level coming with rear parking sensors, an upgraded Uconnect infotainment system, and blind-spot monitoring. Many of the features that used to only be attainable through a package deal are now available as stand-alone items. These include a panoramic sunroof and a 20-speaker audio system. The 8.4-inch touchscreen now has HD radio available, the rear-seat Uconnect Theater system now has access to streaming videos, and the navigation system has 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity.
