Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.

The Chrysler Pacifica was introduced in the 2004 model year and discontinued after the 2008 model year.

Injury measures

Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was well controlled. After the dummy moved forward into the airbag, it rebounded into the seat without its head hitting any stiff structure that could cause injury.
