2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid vs. 2022 Honda Pilot

When the Honda Pilot first launched, it was on its way to being the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. It was reliable, safe, and fun to drive. Since then, though, it’s lost some of its luster against newer competition, such as the Toyota Highlander and Nissan Pathfinder. The new 2020 version has a few tweaks that make it even better than before—but what about those hybrid rumors? With those in mind (and with an eye toward 2023), let’s compare this year’s Honda Pilot Hybrid vs. the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan:

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid has a striking profile, rounded edges, and sleek grille. The car’s aerodynamic design helps it ride smoothly on the road. In contrast, its sleek side mirrors help provide extra visibility when you need it—especially useful if you plan to take this vehicle on a long road trip with friends or family members.

The 2022 Honda Pilot also has a bold exterior design that will catch your eye right away. It features sharp angles, giving it an aggressive look that will appeal to many drivers. You can also see some similarities between these two vehicles’ designs: both have tall roofs, but the Honda Pilot takes things even further by having an extended roofline near its rear wheels (called “high shoulder line”). This gives the car more room for passengers when they sit in back seats—and since there are three rows of seating available, this feature comes in handy when you need extra space for unexpected guests!

  • Interior Design

In terms of interior design, the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid and the 2022 Honda Pilot are two very similar vehicles. They both have a comfortable cabin that can fit up to eight people and come with plenty of storage space. Both also feature touchscreen displays for navigation, as well as in-car WiFi service for passengers to use their smartphones without having to worry about losing signal as you drive.

However, there are some differences between these two minivans’ cabins: For instance, while both vans have a third-row seat that folds down into the floor when not in use (which any parent of more than one child will appreciate), only the 2022 Honda Pilot’s middle row has captain’s chairs that can easily slide forward or backward depending on how much legroom you need at any given moment.

Technology & Safety

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid comes with the Uconnect Theater System, which includes a dual-screen entertainment system that allows you to watch videos and play games on one screen while your passengers enjoy their own movie or game on the other. The Pilot does not come with this feature.

The 2022 Honda Pilot has an adaptive cruise control system that lets you set speed limits and lets the car brake itself if it hits something in front of it. This is not available on the Pacifica Hybrid for safety reasons (the entire vehicle would have had to be redesigned).


The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid comes standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, while the 2022 Honda Pilot offers either a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 or a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine, both producing 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid has better acceleration than the 2022 Honda Pilot: it takes 4 seconds for Toyota’s luxury hybrid to reach 60 mph from a standstill versus 5 seconds for Honda’s midsize crossover SUV (both use all-wheel drive). This difference might not seem significant at first glance, but it makes an incredible difference in everyday driving conditions.

The Bottom Line

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid has a better engine, transmission, and fuel economy. It’s an excellent choice for those who want to haul up to 8 passengers but don’t want to sacrifice style or comfort to get better mileage.
