A peak at the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica


Designed with style, family safety, comfort, improved handling and fuel-efficiency in mind, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is poised to make the minivan hip and cool again. Its striking new design features a lowered floor, raked windshield and 20-inch wheels. The auto manufacturer increased the wheelbase and track width, made the grille and the taillight graphics more horizontal, curved the windshield and laid it further back. Plus, there’s lots of chrome and character lines running over front wheels and down behind the rear ones. It’s all part of the mission to transform the minivan to meet modern needs.

Throughout its 197.3 cubic feet of interior space, the 2017 Pacifica is covered in soft-touch materials that appear hand-sewn and are available in a range of two tone and monochromatic interior color schemes. Press a button to travel further back than ever and move forward to fold the Stow ‘N Go seats. That’s just one of the 37 innovations in the newly redesigned 2017 Pacifica. Add that to the company’s 78 other innovations in minivan technology over its five generations of minivans, and it’s no surprise Chrysler is still the leader in the minivan sector.

There’s even a plug-in variant, which is an 80 MPGe hybrid version of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. Plus it has over 100 safety features, much more than any other brand. They include advanced lower-extending and longer-inflating side-curtain airbags that provide additional protection in wrecks with rollovers or multiple strike points. There are specialized child seats and a removable center seat that helps provide seating for eight and a Stow ‘n Vac integrated vacuum. The all-wheel drive model has package-protected all-new architecture.

The exterior of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica uses high-strength steel, exotic materials like magnesium in cross-car dash beams, aluminum sliding doors and a liftgate inner panel. Hydrofoam load beams are incorporated into the crash box of the engine compartment, the frame rails better integrate the Stow ‘n Go wells, and all those things increase the new, larger Pacifica’s torsion by 30%. Those changes reduce the weight of gas-only versions by 200 pounds and play a significant role in making the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica’s ride and handling the best in its class, which is why you must check one out at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

The 3.6-liter Pentastar engine’s new intake camshafts with two-step valve lift, friction reduction and cooled exhaust-gas recirculation have created a five percent improvement in engine efficiency. The 287 horsepower engine is now four pounds lighter, and overall drag is reduced by three percent. The new and improved standard TorqueFlite nine-speed automatic transmission improves fuel economy, while earlier torque-converter lockup is achieved by programming active noise cancellation through the stereo. These upgrades result in fuel economy that’s best-in-class.

The new, more stylish 2017 Chrysler Pacifica replaces all Dodge and Chrysler minivans and will be offered in LX, Touring, Limited as well as Limited Platinum badge trims. The Touring grade has leather, rear entertainment and a variety other cool options. With the new upgrades, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is enough to make anyone walk away from the gas-guzzling SUVs that attempted to replace the minivan.
