Chrysler might have pioneered the concept of the minivan, but for several years the Town & Country struggled to compete with alternatives like the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, or Kia Sedona. With the launch of the 2017 Pacifica, Chrysler strongly reasserts its place in the practical, spacious minivan marketplace. Using a name previously affixed to a crossover, the 2017 Pacifica is a big multi-seat family hauler with clever folding/collapsing seating options that can accommodate passengers, cargo, or a combination of both.
Good-looking outside and upscale-feeling inside, it's packed with equipment in all five trims: the LX, Touring, Touring-L, Touring-L Plus, and Limited. The LX comes with the essentials and more. All three rows of seats get zoned climate control, while a backup camera helps with parking via a display on the infotainment's 5-inch touchscreen. The Touring adds power to the useful sliding side doors, as well as keyless ignition, and the Touring-L gains a power tailgate, leather upholstery, and heated front seats. The Touring-L Plus and Limited up the standard equipment to luxury levels. All are front-wheel drive and powered by a 3.6-liter V6 with 287 hp using a nine-speed automatic transmission. A hybrid version, meanwhile, brings plug-in power to a lower-output V6, allowing an EPA-estimated 33 miles of electric-only driving. Think comfort and ease rather than driving excitement and you won't be disappointed. The Chrysler Pacifica makes an impressive return to the category it invented, and it's well worth a look if you need a capable, comfortable minivan.

If you're looking for favorable mpg figures, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is a great choice. The hybrid powertrain gets an EPA-estimated 84 MPGe, with a total estimated range of 570 miles on a full charge
One of the great things about a minivan is the abundance of interior space. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is no different, with a third row that folds flat into the floor to open up the cargo area for grocery shopping or hauling sporting equipment to the next game. With the third-row seats in place, the Pacifica has 32.3 cubic feet of space, which opens up to 87.5 cubic feet when the seats are folded. If that's not enough, fold the second-row seats to open up the full 140.5 cubic feet of cargo volume—perfect for your next DIY project.
Not only does the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica have plenty of cargo space, but it's flexible too, allowing you to configure the seating arrangements for your passenger and cargo needs. Chrysler boasts 243 different configurations and, thanks to the Stow 'n Go® seating that's standard across all rows on gas-powered models, it's easy to create a flat floor on one side of the vehicle for long cargo like skis, surfboards, or timber. (Hybrid models have Stow 'n Go seating in the third row only.)
Chrysler has thought about how you'll use the 2017 Pacifica, with an available hands-free tailgate (Touring models) and sliding doors. This makes loading precious cargo easy, whether you're holding a sleeping child or carrying armfuls of groceries for a holiday dinner. In addition to the available hands-free sliding doors, you'll get quick access to the rear seats with the easy-tilt second row. It only takes a pull of the lever to give you access to the back of the car.
Driving with the whole family might not always be the most relaxing experience, but the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica creates a calm atmosphere. The design of this minivan works to reduce road noise and vibration so when a passenger needs to sleep—or you want to enjoy the scenery on a road trip—there will be no distractions.

The 2017-2020 Toyota Sienna is a great minivan for weekday errands and weekend adventures for seven or eight (depending on the configuration). All models come with Toyota's suite of driver aids, giving you peace of mind no matter what your daily driving looks like. Climb the trim levels across 2017-2020 models and you'll find great features like a power liftgate (SE and higher trims), leather seats (XLE and higher trims), and heated front seats (Limited trim only). There's also available all-wheel drive if you need extra confidence in poor weather.

The Honda Odyssey is a versatile vehicle that's capable of shuttling the team, carpooling with friends, or hitting the open road for a family road trip. 2017-2019 models feature a standard 280-hp 3.5L V6 engine, with lots of great features across the trim levels. The versatile cargo space makes hauling awkward items a breeze—even removing the second row is a simple task if you need to load up for work or an upcoming home renovation.
The 2017-2019 Honda Odyssey LX trim features:
Tilt and telescopic steering column
Just as ready for weekend camping as it is for a trip to the grocery store, the 2017-2019 Dodge Grand Caravan is a great vehicle for daily life. The standard 3.6L Pentastar engine is very capable, and the performance-tuned suspension on 2017-2019 GT models makes it fun to drive. Add in the available all-wheel drive (2018 onward), and you've got a vehicle that can perform in any weather. If you'd like a calmer drive, look for 2017-2019 SXT models for the best spread of comfort features.

Yes—standard and available features include traction control and electronic stability control, making the Chrysler Pacifica a capable winter driver. It only comes as front-wheel drive, though, so bear this in mind if you're looking for all-wheel drive.
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Limited trim has a tri-pane panoramic sunroof as standard. This lets plenty of light into the cabin, making it a beautiful place to relax, whether you're in the carpool lane or heading out on a road trip.
The 2017 model has seven seats as standard, with the option of adding a removable eighth seat to standard powertrain models. This optional seat fits between the second-row outboard seats and is easy to remove should you need to open up that cargo space.
2017 models certainly do. Standard powertrain models feature Stow 'n Go functionality in the second and third rows, while hybrid models feature Stow 'n Go in the third row only. Stow 'n Go seats are great for when you want extra seating with the ability to create extra cargo space for long road trips when you need it.
The versatile interior of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica gives you plenty of choices when it comes to balancing cargo and passenger needs. The Pacifica comes with seven seats as standard, but this can be increased to eight with the available middle seat for the second row. All gas-powered models have Stow 'n Go seating across the second and third rows as standard, allowing the seats to fold flat into the floor. Hybrid models have this feature in the third row only. All 2017 gasoline Pacifica models have 32.3 cubic feet of space in the back, which opens up to 87.5 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded. If that's not enough space, fold the second-row seats to open up the full 140.5 cubic feet of cargo volume.
The base model is well equipped, but you can jump up to the Touring L Plus if you want additional driver-assistance features and a second-row entertainment system. The Limited trim adds ventilated front seats and navigation.
The 2017 eight-seat Pacifica has five full sets of LATCH restraints (upper tether and lower anchors)—three in the second-row seats and two in the third row. The seven-seat Pacifica has second-row captain's seats, which reduces the second-row child seat capacity to two.
The Pacifica's third row has seating for three; however, it's worth noting that there are only two sets of LATCH restraints available. Larger car seats will have more space when installed in the outboard positions.
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica comes with two powertrain options. The standard engine is a 287-hp 3.6L Pentastar® V6 paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. This engine achieves an EPA-estimated 22 mpg combined.
2017-Present (first generation)
In 2017, the Chrysler Pacifica was launched as a replacement for the discontinued Chrysler Town & Country. For 2018, a new base trim was added with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity. In 2020 an all-wheel-drive version became available, while the lower L and LX trims split off to form the Chrysler Voyager.
A refresh in 2021 updated the look and feel of the Pacifica and added more driver-assistance features. Interior tech improves further for 2022 models, with the available rear-seat entertainment system gaining Amazon Fire compatibility.
