Chrysler reintroduces the Pacifica for 2017, as a luxury minivan

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.
