2017 Chrysler Pacifica at Roberts Chrysler Dodge for Meriden, CT

The Chrysler Pacifica returns after 8 years, replacing the Chrysler Town and Country as Chrysler's leading minivan. The Pacifica steps right into the minivan segment, and stands out as a leader in the segment. Though the earlier Pacifica was essentially a minivan in terms of function, it had front-hinged sedan-style rear doors. While the new Pacifica is more stylish than the Town & Country van it replaces, those sliding rear doors remain, unmistakably minivan. Standard features on the Pacifica LX include power windows, locks, and mirrors; 17-inch tires; active noise cancellation; air conditioning; touchscreen audio with AM/FM and Bluetooth audio streaming; a power driver seat; and steering-wheel audio controls.

Under the Pacifica's Hood

A nine-speed automatic transmission, replacing the previous six-speed in the gas version, improves efficiency and performance. However, a bigger factor in boosting both is weight reduction, down over 300 pounds versus the Town & Country according to FCA, as well as slicker aerodynamics. A new hybrid powertrain is set to arrive in a few months, but at launch the only engine is the Pentastar V-6, rated at 287 horsepower. The Pacifica is rated at 18 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, and a total of 22 mpg combined. Powertrain performance isn't the only impressive aspect of the Pacifica. With a new front-strut and rear trailing-arm suspension, the van responds impressively when pushed to its limits.

Design of Chrysler Pacifica

One design element the Pacifica retains from the previous Chrysler minivans is the sliding-side-door track hidden along the bottom edge of the rearmost side windows. It's a cleaner look than the channels that run along the sides of competitors. Chrysler's minivans have led their class with fold-away seating in two rows. The Pacifica retains that flexible layout and makes it standard across the lineup, while adding a couple of touches that make it easier to convert the van from cargo duty to passenger duty. The Chrysler Pacifica, being the most kid-friendly minivan in its class, can help entertain on the longest of family trips. Passengers in the second row have access to several different fun and interactive games.

What type of transmission does the Chrysler Pacifica feature?

The all-new Pacifica is the only vehicle in its segment to be equipped with the pioneering mechanics of a standard9-speed automatic transmission - a primary contributor to fuel efficiency and driving dynamics.  

What gas mileage can you expect with the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid?

Look to the Hybrid technology for outstanding fuel economy of80 MPGe, a 30-mile electric range, and a total driving range of530 miles with V6 powertrain and charge. The Hybrid modelmay be plugged in and electrically charged, as well as throughregenerative braking by the gasoline engine.

Make no mistake: This Pacifica is entirely new, and has nothing in common with any previous Chrysler. The all new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica sets itself apart as one of the best minivans in its segment. A rearview camera and Bluetooth are common across the lineup, and the Pacifica is the first Chrysler van to offer advanced features such as adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, and surround-view cameras. The antilock brake system also includes a couple extra features, including periodic brake-rotor drying in rainy conditions and automatically snugging the brake pads to the rotors when the driver abruptly lifts off the gas. If you've got child safety seats installed in the second row seats, getting to the third row is easier this year. Passengers can still use the center aisle between the seats but there's also a second-row seat tilt feature that allows you to tip those Stow 'n Go seats forward without having to remove the safety seats.
