Chrysler Pacifica gets 28 mpg highway EPA rating


The Chrysler Pacifica is an amazing automobile. It’s roomy, has all the creature comfort the entire family wants, and all the safety features they need. And it’s getting better every year. Now the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has given the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica’s highway cycle fuel economy a rating of 28 miles per gallon. That’s a 10% improvement over the last model. This enables families to travel many more miles for a lot less money. It’s a welcome largess for the people in charge of planning the trips and filling up the tank. It also means the new Pacifica is greener too. To see that it is both a green minivan and one that offers power, you should test drive one at Chapman Chrysler Jeep. You are sure to fall in love.

Chrysler has also added a more powerful, lighter, redesigned 3.6 liter, V6 engine with a two-step variable valve lift, and cooled exhaust-gas recirculation. All of this leads to better performance, increased engine efficiency, and better gas mileage. The Pacifica mileage in city driving has improved by 6% while it offers a 12% miles per gallon increase when you take it on the highway. This vehicle just begs to be driven and has enough room to fit all your family and friends and their stuff. It’s green, gorgeous, and loaded with get up and go. Yet seems to simply sip on the fuel.

If that’s not enough, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica also boasts the first 9 speed automatic transmission on a minivan. One that shifts smoothly and makes driving this vehicle a lot more fun. It’s the newest member of the FCA US TorqueFlite transmission family. Plus the redesigned Pacifica is 250 pounds lighter. Together they too help to improve the vehicle’s miles per gallon. So simply purchasing a Pacifica helps you to make your money go further, gets you further on a tank full of gas, and makes you smile every time your drive by a gas station without having to stop.

According to the FCA Group Executive Council Head of Product Portfolio Management and COO of Product Development Mark Chernoby, Chrysler is not only focused on creating an automobile that will better meet the needs of their customers today. The vehicle is designed and built to enhance their quality of life and their driving experience for many years to come. The Town & Country was one of the most beloved minivans ever produced. In order for Chrysler to replace it with the Pacifica it had to be an extraordinary automobile. The EPA verified 28 miles per gallon is only reason the 2017 Pacifica is considered to be special.

Lightweight, high-strength steel and magnesium to reduce weight, improved value, greater customer satisfaction, enhanced transmission, more interior room, a smoother ride, better handling, and improved gas mileage, are just some of the reasons Chrysler is confident the 2017 Pacifica is the right vehicle to replace the vaunted Town & Country. And FCA isn’t finished with the Pacifica. There’s word of a soon to be released Pacifica Hybrid that gets 80 MPGe. Contact your Chrysler dealer for information on when the 2017 Pacifica will be in a showroom near you.
