The all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica offers more major standard content at a lower price point than its key competitors, it also offers features not available at any price from the competition. These exclusive features include Stow ‘n Go seating, Stow ‘n Go Assist, heated second-row seats, 20-inch wheels, tri-pane panoramic sunroof, 10-inch seatback touch screens, ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist, 360-degree Surround View camera, ventilated seats, rotary e-shifter, capless fuel filler, LED fog lamps and headlamps, handsfree sliding doors and liftgate and KeySense programmable key fob.

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 headroom and wider interior space. The new-look is more serious yet more beautiful. New LED daytime running lights that are 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 liftgate 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 gives 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.
