2017 Chrysler Pacifica Review
While minivans have long had a reputation as being excellent family vehicles, they haven’t always been considered very technologically advanced. However, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica isn’t like other minivans. It continually pushes the bounds of its class.
When Richmond, New Baltimore, and Detroit area drivers want the most safety, interior amenities, and highest performance, there’s no other car they should turn to. In this review, our team at Dick Huvaere’s Richmond Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) will show you why.
Cutting-Edge Safety Features
When a vehicle has been granted as many safety awards as the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has, you know it can protect your entire family.
Not only has it earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, it’s also earned a TOP SAFETY RATING+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
These commendations are in large part due to the many cutting-edge safety technologies available in the vehicle. For example, the ParkSense® Rear Park Assist system can help you safely pull in and out of tight spots.
Features like the Forward Collision Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control can also smartly help you avoid collisions. If the network of sensors in these features detects you may be approaching a front-end collision, your Pacifica will autonomously hit the brakes.
2017 Chrysler Pacifica Performance Specs
As always, these high-tech features are backed by a powerful engine. The 3.6L V6 under the hood of the Pacifica can generate up to 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. With that kind of muscle, you can haul 3,600 pounds of cargo!
Of course, high power shouldn’t compromise efficiency. The Pacifica V6 is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission that allows you to maintain 28 highway MPG and 18 city MPG.1 That way, you won’t have to worry about your next big road trip eating up gas.
Plenty of Interior Comforts
To satisfy the entire family, your minivan is going to need plenty of room for everybody. Fortunately, the Chrysler Pacifica features 197.3 cubic feet of interior space and can seat up to eight passengers.
While 32.3 cubic feet have been set aside just for storing cargo, the minivan also features the Stow ‘n Go® seating and storage system. This will allow you to cleverly configure seating to ensure the most cargo space possible.
Finally, to keep everyone occupied, the Pacifica also comes with a comprehensive entertainment suite, featuring the available Uconnect® theater. With Uconnect®, rear passengers will have a 10.1-inch HD touchscreen and Blu-ray™ player to keep them busy.
