For those families with “attitude”

There you are – sitting in the parent pick-up line at the kids’ elementary school. You’re looking at the never-ending row of gray and silver SUVs, crossovers, and sedans. You feel trapped – stuck in a rut of perpetual boredom fed by routines and complacency and made worse by cookie-cutter transportation. You need to escape this automotive purgatory. But you’re a good parent and know you can’t shuck the responsibilities of chauffeuring your brood to and from their various activities. What’s the solution? The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat or Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk? No, those are just overkill on horsepower and underwhelming on people room. No, you need space. You need seven or eight seats. You also need vogue styling. You aren’t the average PTA parent, after all. Well, Chrysler has a solution. Meet the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica S and its murdered-out S Appearance Package.

For the 2018 model year, the Pacifica can be had with the S Appearance Package for an extra $595. It’s available on the Touring Plus, Touring L, Touring L Plus, and the Limited model. It’s blacked-out theme spans from its black paint and Gloss Black accents to its 18-inch wheels in a hue called Black Noise. Tim Kuniskis, head of Dodge, SRT, Chrysler, and Fiat, said, “The Chrysler Pacifica definitely stands out in the school drop-off line, and its class-leading style has won over many new customers. The Pacifica’s S Appearance Package takes that style to the next level and offers our customers yet another unique personality that further differentiates Pacifica from the rest of the segment.” Kuniskis is right about that – no other minivan offers such a blacked-out appearance package.

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica S offers a wholly sinister look to an otherwise unassuming minivan

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica S offers a wholly sinister look to an otherwise unassuming minivan. The black paint is complemented by Gloss Black accents on the grille surround, headlight eyebrows, side window trim, available roof rack, door handles, and wheels. As mentioned, 18-inch wheels come standard, but 20-inch wheels in the Black Noise color are available for $995. Regardless of wheel size, the Pacifica S comes with Black Noise-colored exterior badges.

Inside, the Pacifica S comes with black leather seats with Light Diesel Gray accents. The seatbacks are embroidered with an “S,” which is outlined in that Light Diesel Gray accent color. Fiat Chrysler has made anodized aluminum its accent of choice, and the Pacifica S is no different. Here, the metal is colored in “Ice Cave,” a dark satin chrome color. These accents are found around the air vents, surrounding the gauge cluster, along the rim of the steering wheel, the door handles, and on the center console.
