The Chrysler Pacifica 1999 concept vehicle, not to be confused with the 2004-2008 Chrysler Pacifica crossover vehicle, was a concept luxury minivan built to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the minivan. The overall design of the Pacifica, based on the NS Platform, was a cross between a minivan and a limousine, with the interior amenities of a private jet. The van was essentially a more luxurious Town & Country (most likely equipped with the 3.8L EGH V6 and AWD), along with an LHS inspired front fascia and a raised roof, which included a skylight and overhead storage bins. It could seat up to six, with four front and rear captain's chairs and fold-out jump seats on each of the rear seats. The 2nd row seats featured power footrests as well. The build quality of the Pacifica appears to be superior to that of the standard Town & Country. Another interesting feature was a golf bag rack in the trunk space that could hold up to four golf bags. The Pacifica minivan was truly a luxurious car, and it and the 2000 Chrysler Citadel concept car, inspired the 2004 crossover vehicle of the same name.
