Chrysler offers new, fancier Pacifica trim to leather seat haters

The Touring Plus trim is now the highest trim you can purchase without leather seats.

Not everybody likes leather seats. For those people, there's a new trim of Chrysler Pacifica that offers more features without having to sit on animals.

Chrysler announced that it's adding a new trim to the Pacifica lineup -- Touring Plus. Resting between the Touring and Touring L trims, Touring Plus offers more standard and optional features without requiring leather seats.

I suggest picking one up in blue, but I might be biased.

Standard equipment on Touring Plus not found on Touring includes LED taillights, a cleaner front fascia, projector headlights, three-zone automatic climate control, a power liftgate and sunshades for the second and third row.

Buyers can toss in a few options, as well, including blind spot monitoring and rear parking sensors, a 3G Wi-Fi hotspot and the 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system (a 5.0-inch screen is standard). If buyers opt for both the infotainment upgrade and 18-inch wheels, Chrysler will throw in a second-row overhead DVD player at no charge.

The Chrysler Pacifica Touring Plus is priced at $32,360, which splits the difference nicely between the $30,995 Touring and the $34,995 Touring L. You can outfit your Pacifica with even more stuff, like Uconnect Theater and autonomous emergency braking, but you'll have to move to a higher trim with leather seats for that to happen. The most expensive Pacifica on offer, the plug-in Hybrid Platinum, costs $44,995 before options.
