They are probably using MFG specs. They said:

"If there’s a complaint to be registered against Pacifica it’s that the 250-hp 3.5-liter V6, borrowed from the 300M and mated to a four-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive, doesn’t provide enough grunt. While the exhaust produces a well-tuned note, the engine racket—especially above 5000 rpm—doesn’t match the level of refinement the rest of the vehicle engenders"


The two pieces of info don't make sense.

It will be interesting to see an actual documented road test.

They also said:

"Content in the protective cocoon that is Pacifica, you wonder how this happened. Haven’t you read that the DaimlerChrysler hookup was a colossal flop? Aren’t the partners having a hard time agreeing on the time of day, let alone what products to build?"

This was a design from the old Management. Now lets see what they have of there own design.

Gotta be a misprint, all the other auto mags are saying 0-60 in 9.5s.

Has anyone heard much about the new 300N ? I hear that it's going to be a rear-wheel drive with a HEMI.
