Looks like the 2007 Chrysler Pacifica will also be sporting the company's corporate headlights for model year 2007. This pair of eyes will appear on the next Chrysler Sebring sedan and convertible if recent spy shots are to be believed. Allpar.com is reporting the Pacifica will also get some new powerplant options in a 4.0L dual-exhaust coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission and a 3.8L engine to replace the current 3.5L. Follow the link to learn a few more minor deets about the next Pacifica.

      That would be correct ramsport47, the Crossfire did have those lamps first.

      Am I alone in thinking those new headlights are VERY R class? I'd think they'd try to make the two cars look a little less similar than they already do.

      The pacifica still looks better.

      The recently-facelifted VW Polo:

      And the first evidence of their new styling direction, 2003's Concept R:

      Yeah, it's almost a total rip.

      The update looks good. I like the new top level powertrain. It is rumored that this new 4.0L V6 and six speed will also be in the upcoming minivan. It is good that it will debut first in the Pacifica. I have driven the 3.5L Pacifica and liked it - just didn't quite have enough off the line acceleration. I expect to see this officially when the Sebring is announced next month.

      i read about the proton gen 2 in 2002 newspaper article two years before its launch.

      Dual beam headlights[h13?]now
      Didn't the pacifica come out wiht HID projectors, and then reflectors.

      I hope they added the lateral turn signal repeater, because you cannot see that turn signal from the side.

      Seeing as the 4.0 is a stroked 3.5, maybe 270hp, remember that the pacifica need premium with its 3.5 to make its rated 250hp.

      allpar says just 255 horsepower for the 4.0. Not good at all, even considering that the 3.5's 250 is likely over-rated. (Probably 235-240 with the new standards.) The six-speed automatic is a more significant improvement.

      headlights look exactly like a Proton Gen 2

      "Seeing as the 4.0 is a stroked 3.5, maybe 270hp, remember that the pacifica need premium with its 3.5 to make its rated 250hp."

      It needed midgrade, not Premium. 91+ is required for the "Special" package on the 300M.

      Chrysler has already announced 255 horsepower on this motor (4.0L). This engine is a stop-gap for around 2010 when the "Phoenix" V-6's come out. Although not stellar, the 4.0 is tuned for a very wide powerband, plus stuck to the new 6 speed auto, with actually 2 4th gears, (4th Prime) to be exact, it's more like a 7 speed, it'll be much more efficient in the Pacifica, Nitro, and the 08 Vans.

      front lamps: VW anyone?

      #'s 3 & 8...Chrysler had those headlights first...on the updated Crossfire concept, then the production car, and the Town & Country before the 2006 Jetta came out...Pay Attention
      • 8 Years Ago
      As a current Pacifica owner, I LOVE the idea of the 4.0L engine (rumored to be 285HP+) and the 6-speed transmission. Not sure I like the Aspen-like hood grooves, seems to me they'll be a dirt and bug magnet and impossible to keep clean.

      One other item - give it a voice activated Nav. The current Nav is too damn restrictive when the vehicle is in motion. I am sick and tired of having to stop to make changes on the Nav.
