The Pacifica is the same chassis as the Mercedes Grand Sport Tourer (GST), I believe...
I have no basis for fact here, but I got the impression that the GST might actually be built on the Pacifica platform.

Being an old MOPAR fan as well as a MB fan, the "Pacifica" was in development for a long time. After MB "merged" with Chrysler the Pacifica was sent back to the drawing boards because it had too many "unique" parts.

I just got the impression that the Pacifica platform became the basis for the Pacifica first, then the next generation Minivan (not yet introduced) and then the GST.

Y'all feel free to "jump all over me" if I am wrong.

George

I don't read the car mag's, my info came from friend who works for Chrysler and a family member who works for D/C. I did later see a show on TV that had a cut away of the 300C and it was stated the car was on a MB S430 platform. My friend said the new Magnum was also on the same chassis and would share about all the same options. If you check it out, both Magnum & 300C have same 120 inch WB and same width and pretty much all the same options.

I still don't think MB would use a W220 platform on a Dodge.

It is hard to believe isn't it, I feel the same way at times. Why use any MB chassis? But the same can be said of Ford/Volvo and the new Ford 500 on the S80 Volvo chassis. I guess it's all part of the plans for global industry down the road.
