When the Chrysler Pacifica disappeared from the market a few years ago, there were a lot of disappointed car fans to say the least. The all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has taken the entire automotive world by storm. It is designed to be one of the most revolutionary minivans to ever hit the market. Automotive journalists from across Canada have raved about the new Pacifica's head-turning styling and inspiring performance. The trims include the base Touring-L, the mid-level Touring L Plus, and the top-of-the-line Limited. Here's a rundown of what the all-new Chrysler Pacifica brings to the table.
Under the hood of the new Pacifica sits Chrysler's renowned Pentastar V-6 engine. The potent 3.6-litre engine develops an exciting 287 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. A TorqueFlite nine-speed automatic transmission aids the Pacifica's performance capabilities. Whether you are taking a road trip or dropping the kids off at school, you will always have more than enough power on tap. Acceleration is especially strong for an eight-passenger family vehicle. The minivan's fuel efficiency tops out at an impressive 8.4 L/100km. Chrysler also introduces a new Pacifica Hybrid that can travel a remarkable 48 kilometres on solely electric power.
Enjoyable Driving Dynamics
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is more than just a spacious family hauler. It is also engineered to keep drivers engaged while behind the wheel. Because of the minivan's stiff structure, it maintains great balance in all driving situations. A well-tuned suspension allows the Pacifica to hug the road more like a luxury sedan. Fortunately, the van's poised handling does not ruin its ride quality. The Pacifica does a great job of absorbing rough patches of pavement. This should be good news for the drivers who encounter bumpy roads on a regular basis.
It is easy to see why so many people are captivated by the new Chrysler Pacifica. Unlike the typical minivan, the aerodynamic Pacifica has the ability to make onlookers take a second glance. To help the minivan to maintain its smooth appearance, Chrysler neatly concealed the sliding door track lines. The Pacifica's athletic stance makes it look even more impressive. A sculpted hood and a stylish front fascia highlight the van's sleek profile. If you really want to announce your arrival, opt for the dazzling 20-inch wheels. Some of the beautiful exterior colours include Jazz Blue, Velvet Red, Granite Crystal, and Dark Cordovan.
As soon as you take a seat in the new Pacifica, you will immediately notice its upscale character. LED interior lighting makes the entire cabin come to life. For good reason, the Pacifica's interior was chosen as one of Wards' 10 Best Interiors for 2016. While you are on the road, Chrysler's innovative Active Noise Cancellation system keeps the ride whisper-quiet. The all-new Pacifica is the perfect vehicle for taking your family and friends on an exciting road trip. Everyone will have plenty of room to spare. An exclusive Stow 'n Go seating system gives the Pacifica a level of versatility that most minivans can't match. Several innovative storage areas can also be found throughout the cabin. If you want to add an extra degree of fun to your journey, opt for the Tri-Pane panoramic sunroof.
As anticipated, Chrysler offers a long list of cool features for the 2017 Pacifica. Available with an 8.4-inch display, Chrysler's Uconnect system is among the best infotainment systems in the industry. The 20-speaker Harman Kardon audio system is a must for avid music listeners. Featuring dual touch-screen displays mounted behind the front seats, the Uconnect Theater system will keep even the most hard-to-please child happy. A cool "Are We There Yet?" app keeps youngsters updated on their current location. Some of the other notable features include ventilated seats, Bluetooth technology, USB charging ports, and 3D navigation.
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica offers an enhanced degree of passenger safety. When traveling in a congested area, the available Surround-View Camera enables you to quickly pinpoint any obstacles. Meanwhile, a new KeySense system allows parents to set restrictions for their teen drivers. In the event that you momentarily lose focus while behind the wheel, the Active Braking system can automatically bring the Pacifica to a stop. Some of the other available safety innovations include adaptive cruise control, Lane Keep Assist, Park Assist, and blind-spot monitoring.
