Chrysler Pacifica is one cool minivan

 

The idea that a minivan can be cool is lost on a lot of people. Back in the day, not too long ago, minivans were only driven by soccer moms or people who bought them second-hand and had no choice. My have times changed as most manufacturers make minivans that can off-road, zip in and out of traffic and provide camping opportunities. While most minivan drivers would love zipping up and down a mountain road in a sports car, they aren’t so bad, and Chrysler Pacifica is proof of that.

First and foremost, the thing that gives most minivans a bad name is power, and Chrysler knows that. With the famous and very well-liked Pentastar V-6 engine, you can get places quickly. Don’t just take our word for it as the engine was on the Ward’s 10 best list three times. It is a redesigned 3.6 liter V-6 with two-step variable-valve lift. Combined with innovative engine-weight reductions that give it even more power and efficiency, and we can see why the Pentastar brand was a good choice. With a nine-speed auto transmission, which is the first ever to be in a minivan, drivers can enjoy smooth shifting. While you aren’t going to win at the track with a Chrysler Pacifica, you will get great speed, and a combined 28 MPG. To see how times have changed and how great a Pacifica is, test drive one at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

Back in the day, people used to lift up their hoods to show off their cars. My times have changed, and while people love power, many of us now care more about tech, and the Pacifica has you covered. With Uconnect Access, you will get a variety of cool futures such as vehicle finder, which allows you, at the touch of a button, to view maps, and with this, you can get where you need to go. If you have kids who are distracting you, or if you are just someone who is forgetful, you will love the remote lock, unlock and start. By using this, you can remotely lock or unlock your doors from anywhere, provided you have your smartphone nearby. Nothing is cooler than having a roaming Wi-Fi hotspot, and vehicle owners can set the in-demand service up for a day, or much longer if they choose. There is more as you can have Sirius radio coverage so you can listen to what you want, when you want and from where you want.

Nothing used to scream boring like a boxy minivan that was unaggressive. But, with a long wheelbase and low ground clearance, along with a wide track, the Chrysler Pacifica is planted firmly to the ground, and the setup highlights the style. The wind-swept profile is not a facade as it is more aerodynamic than any other version the company has produced.

It is not often someone calls a minivan cool, but if you look inside, check out the tech, look under the hood or see one on the road, you are sure to be impressed as minivans have come a long way.
