With nearly 40 innovations not offered by any others in its class, the all-new Chrysler Pacifica is the new benchmark in the segment that we invented more than 30 years ago. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica offers more features – and at a better value than our key competitors – on each and every trim level.

 

3.6-liter V6, which makes 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, and the nine-speed automatic transmission.

 

Fuel Economy:

28 mpg highway, 18 mpg city, and 22 mpg combined

Plug-in hybrid available late 2016.

 

More head room and wider interior space. The new look is more serious yet more beautiful. New LED daytime running lights that is more contemporary. The exterior design is not boxy, but more athletic looking. The sliding doors are lighter and made of aluminum. New LED horizontal modern tail lamps and the lift gate has better visibility. The lift gate is made of magnesium and aluminum.

 

The interior detail is not what you think of when you think minivan, the UConnect is amazing, and we love the vacuum that’s built in with tools. The 3 panel sunroof is impressive. All seats fold flat for easy hauling. 2nd and third row entertainment systems that are separate. Apps can be downloaded for some fun games. Leather and heated seats, around view camera, ventilated seats are features others can’t offer. In car wifi connectivity. Offers Siri eyes free.

 

Interior colors offer accent stitching that really give the minivan style. We love the black and deep mocha. All the new interiors are far from boring.

Kids LOVE minivans – parents not as much. Minivans make a statement! This is a family vehicle and this is an extension of their home. Kids name the family minivan, which then changes the perspective. Sales are still strong for the minivan market, over 500,000 vehicles sold each year.

 

AWD should be coming soon.

 

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica will be available in dealer showrooms in spring 2016, with the Pacifica Hybrid plug-in arriving in the second half of 2016.
