When you’re traveling with friends or family, safety is a top priority, and the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has you covered. With more than 100 standard or available safety and security features, the new Pacifica is arguably the best choice in the segment.
The all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica (MSRP from $28,595) is more affordable than both the Toyota Sienna and the Honda Odyssey, and it is already more highly regarded than both by many automotive media outlets. In fact, the Pacifica has already started scooping up awards, including being named “Overall Best Family Car” and “Best Value Family Car” by the Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association.
A new minivan for a new era, the Pacifica is designed, engineered and equipped to provide stand-out occupant protection in the event of a crash. Even better, the Pacifica offers features that can help you avoid accidents altogether.
It starts with a safety-cage body structure that includes side-guard door beams, an energy management system and front and rear crumple zones to absorb the crash forces generated during a collision. Even the steering column is energy absorbing. Advanced, multi-stage airbags are standard, including full-length side-curtain airbags in all three rows, and driver and front passenger knee airbags.
The Pacifica is standard with Electronic Stability Control, All-Speed Traction Control, and even an antilock brake system with rough-road detection. It also comes with Hill-Start Assist, Electronic Roll Mitigation and Trailer-Sway Control.
You can equip the 2017 Pacifica with a Surround View Camera that uses four cameras to deliver a bird’s-eye view around the vehicle. A ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist feature is also available. Parking your minivan has never been this easy.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Hold, Forward Collision Warning-Plus, and LaneSense Lane Departure Warning-Plus are also available, as are Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection.
If you have younger kids, you’ll appreciate that the Pacifica boasts an unsurpassed five seating positions with LATCH attachments for easier – and safer – safety-seat installation.
Lighting and visibility have important roles in vehicle safety, and again the Pacifica delivers. It features automatic High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps, daytime running lamps, LED foglamps and LED taillamps. Rain-sensing windshield wipers, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and heated exterior mirrors are also available.
Pacifica drivers also get the peace of mind that comes with the Uconnect® suite of services and 9-1-1 Call/Assist Call. Uconnect® also offers remote services, stolen vehicle location, voice-to-text and Siri Eyes Free.
The all-new Pacifica is the minivan you want, whether you have a large family or you simply want a vehicle that can fit any lifestyle. Come in today for more information and a test drive.
