The stow and go seats in the Pacifica are pretty terrible. There is practically no padding. Good thing ours have car seats in them.

Beat me to it.  My first thought is, my kids will throw the shit out of those pillows.  But the Pinnacle is not meant for hellspawn, it’s meant for luxury/livery services.  God help you if you introduce child seats to that leather.

At first glance, I assumed this was a Bentayga, or something similar (although the door panels tell another story). I had never heard of the Pacifica Pinnacle until you posted this. I’ll never own a minivan, but that is an absolutely insane amount of car for ~$50k.

The SAAB 9000 Areo seats by Recaro are, by far, the best I’ve sat in, and I have heard them brought up many times when discussing good seats. I mean, look at those beauties.

Or as well? Focusing resources on premiuming some of the platform (JP Skyline becomes US Maxima) or making NISMO more widely available (with an EV spin to it) would consolidate and focus their efforts into more margin per sale.
