The New 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Reinvents the Minivan
As the original creator of the minivan, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles changes the game thirty years later with a new minivan that breaks the mold: the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. Of course the highly anticipated Pacifica comes stock with everything a family can ask for in a vehicle, including generous interior space, utility, efficiency, a touch of style, and most importantly, plenty of safety and security features to make sure everyone is protected while on the road. What sets the new Chrysler minivan apart, though, is that it comes equipped with over 40 new innovations designed to offer comfort, convenience, and functionality that have never been offered by any other vehicle in its class.
Powerful and Efficient
One of the most exciting minivan firsts is that the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is available in a hybrid model. The remarkably fuel efficient Pacifica hybrid will have the honor of being the industry’s first electrified minivan, using a lithium-ion battery to deliver zero-emissions electric power, along with an electrically variable transmission and two electric motors. According to Chrysler, this equates to an incredible driving range of up to 530 miles per tank.
Those who prefer the traditional gasoline model, however, can still enjoy those exciting road trips with the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine, which pumps out an impressive 287-horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. And with the Pacifica engineered to provide the feel and handling of a high-end sedan with its light weight, streamlined profile, and stiff body frame, every ride is sure to be smooth and quiet. What more can a parent want from their family vehicle?
Setting the New Standard for Minivans
Although the exterior of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica seems to follow the traditional minivan design, the interior is a whole different story. As soon as you step inside the 8-passenger van, Chrysler’s close attention to comfort and convenience becomes readily apparent. Boasting features like the Stow ‘n Go seating and storage system to add flexibility to the already spacious interior, heated and ventilated seats, a tri-pane panoramic sunroof, hands-free sliding doors and liftgate, and the always useful Stow ‘n Vac vacuum system, each family journey should be easier and less stressful on everyone.
And you don’t have to worry about the little ones getting bored on those long road trips, because the Pacifica offers an abundance of entertainment options. You can sing along to your favorite tunes on your preferred music app using Bluetooth® Audio Streaming and the 5.0-inch touchscreen interface, which also controls your favorite tools and apps with the touch of a finger. For those who want even more entertainment, some Pacifica models offer Unconnet® Theater, which allows the rear seat passengers to watch movies and play games on two 10-inch high-definition touchscreens. Even the pickiest passenger will have little to complain about.
Safety Where You Need It
When it comes to safety though, the Chrysler Pacifica can keep you and your family well-guarded with over 100 standard and available safety and security features. Features like the Parkview® rear back up camera, available blind-spot monitoring, and the available Lanesense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, you’ll have all the tools you need to help keep you and your precious cargo protected no matter where you go.
