The Chrysler Pacifica is a new minivan for a new generation of drivers, and although it brings almost 40 minivan firsts, one thing that remains constant is the incredible value built into every Chrysler vehicle.
The all-new, eight-passenger 2017 Chrysler Pacifica starts at an MSRP of $28,595, a remarkable $1,400 less than the Town & Country minivan it replaces, and less than the Honda Odyssey ($29,400) and the Toyota Sienna ($28,850). It will, however, deliver an unprecedented amount of technology, versatility and functionality, with an all-new platform that gives it class-leading ride quality, handling and noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels.
There are LX, Touring, Touring-L, Touring-L Plus and Limited trim levels, and each level offers more features and value than the competition. The Pacifica LX comes standard with Bluetooth wireless connectivity, a power driver’s seat, ParkView rear backup camera, a six-speaker audio system and 17-inch wheels. Both Stow ‘n Go seating and Stow ‘n Go Assist are standard, too. As you climb the trim levels, standard or available features include leather upholstery, tri-zone climate control, HID headlamps, and a Stow ‘n Vac integrated vacuum that’s the most powerful in the segment.
There are also segment-exclusive features like ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, a tri-pane panoramic sunroof, capless full filler, hands-free sliding doors and a hands-free liftgate.
There are also best-in-class entertainment choices highlighted by the Uconnect® infotainment suite with 8.4-inch color touchscreen, the available built-in games and the new Uconnect® Theater rear-seat entertainment system. A 20-speaker harman/kardon audio system is also available.
“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,” said Timothy Kuniskis, head of Passenger Car Brands for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) - North America. “The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica offers more features – and at a better value than our key competitors – on each and every trim level.”
The new Pacifica will be powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that’s good for 287 hp and 262 lb/ft of torque. Fuel economy is estimated at an unsurpassed 28 mpg highway, and towing capacity is 3,600 pounds. A Hybrid model will also be available with an unbeatable 80 MPGe and a driving range of more than 500 miles with a full charge and a full tank of gas.
Arriving soon, the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica will do what every Chrysler minivan has done before it: set a new benchmark and provide you more for less. Stop by today for updates, so you can be among the first to see and drive the new Pacifica when it gets here.
