The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica: The Best of the Best Minivans

2017 is a great year for minivans, and no minivan is greater or a smarter buy than the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. The new Pacifica replaces the Town & Country for Chrysler’s minivan entry, and Bloomington Chrysler dealerships can’t wait to start stocking them on their lot because they know that people will be snapping them up left and right. Not just an upgrade of the previous model, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is a whole new design, on a whole new platform. Read on and find out what makes this new minivan such a great buy.

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

One look at the Chrysler Pacifica, both under the hood and in the interior, makes it immediately obvious that a lot of thought went into every aspect of this car. Nothing feels left out and no part of the car feels like an afterthought or something that got shorted during the design process, from the revised 3.6-ltr. V6 Pentastar engine powering the standard model to the ingeniously designed cargo storage system and a whole host of other options and additions that really highlight the care and thoughtfulness that went into the design of this car.

About the Engine and MPG

The standard model’s engine, the previously mentioned Pentastar V6, commands an impressive 287 horsepower, giving it excellent acceleration and handling, despite a curb weight of over 4300 lb.

Even with the weight and the powerful engine, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica still manages to deliver an astounding 18 city and 28 highway miles per gallon, for a combined EPA rating of 22 miles per gallon.

The available plug-in hybrid version of the Pacifica combines two electric motors and a 16-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery for an extremely impressive, and first in its class, EPA rating of 84 miles per gallon equivalent. The hybrid’s battery can be fully recharged in just two hours, using a 240-volt plug-in system.

What Kind of Space?

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is also available with a cleverly designed cargo system, which intelligently and usefully incorporates a vacuum cleaner in the second row of seating, letting you easily keep your vehicle clean in every nook and cranny. With an ample 24 feet of hose, there’s nowhere in the car’s interior you’ll be unable to reach.

The Stow ‘n Go cargo seating system additionally makes it very easy to raise and lower the second and third rows of seating on demand, giving you a large and flexible amount of cargo space and seating, depending on your needs in any situation. With both the rows stowed away, the interior of the Chrysler Pacifica reaches nearly 200 cubic feet of storage space. Even without the seats stowed, under each row is extra storage. This makes the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica the ideal choice for large families or any kind of road trips.
