Overview

Earlier in the 21st century, Chrysler offered a Pacifica model, which never set a fire in the marketplace. Now, the Pacifica name has been revived on an all-new, completely different vehicle, supplanting the long-lived Town & Country minivan, which has been around for more than three decades.

What's New for 2017

The Pacifica is a brand-new model, replacing the Town & Country minivan. Built on a new platform, the 2017 Pacifica has a new look that strives to veer away from familiar minivan appearance, as well as a fresh set of features.

Choosing Your Chrysler Pacifica

Under the Pacifica hood, a 3.6-liter V6 engine develops 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, mating with a nine-speed automatic transmission that’s controlled by a rotary e-shifter. Fuel economy is estimated at 18 mpg city and 28 mpg highway (22 mpg combined).

Sleeker in appearance than the Town & Country, the front end reveals a few styling cues adapted from the Chrysler 200 sedan. At the rear is a traditional liftback, with a bit more curvature than a minivan would have. LED headlights and foglamps are available.

Chrysler has sought to make the interior more stylish and sedan-like, stressing a horizontal layout that helps avoid the riding-high feeling that’s been typical in minivans.

Stow ‘n Go seating has been redesigned. Available features include an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a Uconnect Theater for rear occupants, Enter ‘n Go, a three-pane panoramic sunroof, hands-free sliding doors and liftgate, and even an integrated vacuum cleaner. Optional safety features include a 360-degree surround-view camera, ParkSense parallel/perpendicular parking assist, adaptive cruise control with stop and hold, forward collision warning, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and a backup camera.

Five trim levels are offered, each with front-wheel drive:

Chrysler Pacifica

LX

Starting at $28,595, the base Pacifica comes with Stow ‘n Go seats, Stow ‘n Go Assist for the driver, a power driver’s seat, active noise cancellation, six-speaker audio, second-row power windows, and Bluetooth connectivity. A backup camera and 17-inch aluminum wheels are standard.

Chrysler Pacifica

Touring

Stepping up a notch, the $30,495 Touring adds SiriusXM satellite radio, power sliding doors, passive entry, and automatic headlights.

Chrysler Pacifica

Touring-L

Leather seats, heated front-row seats, three-zone automatic temperature control, remote start, projector headlights, foglamps are standard in the mid-level model, priced at $34,495. So are a power liftgate and chrome accents. The SafetyTec Group includes rear parking assist with stop, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-patch detection.

Chrysler Pacifica

Touring-L Plus

Rear-seat entertainment is standard in the Touring-L Plus, along with a 7-inch Driver Information Display, heated steering wheel, power passenger seat, heated second-row seats, 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, and 13-speaker Alpine sound.

Chrysler Pacifica

Limited

Topping the lineup at $42,495, the Limited features Nappa leather seating with memory functions, power third-row seats, ventilated front seats, 3-D navigation, and the vacuum cleaner. HID headlights, LED foglamps, power-folding mirrors, hands-free sliding doors and liftgate, and tri-pane panoramic sunroof are standard.

CarsDirect Tip

Fiat Chrysler claims nearly 40 minivan “firsts” for the Pacifica, along with “class-leading” ride, handling, and noise/vibration/harshness levels. Despite the altered, more sculpted styling, the Pacifica still has the familiar features of a minivan, from sliding doors to an available power liftgate. During the second half of 2016, a Pacifica Hybrid is expected to emerge, qualifying as the first plug-in hybrid minivan.

Introduced as a 2017 model, Chrysler’s all-new Pacifica aims to take the place of the Town & Country. Like its Dodge Caravan stablemate, that familiar minivan has served the company—and the public—well for more than three decades.

Back in 2004, Chrysler launched a large crossover SUV, also called the Pacifica. After failing to capture much attention, the original Pacifica disappeared after the 2008 model year.

Pricing and Equipment

Starting at $28,595 (plus destination charge), the Pacifica comes in five trim levels: LX, Touring, Touring-L, Touring-L Plus, and Limited. Chrysler also has announced a Pacifica Hybrid.

Under the hood, a 3.6-liter V6 produces 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. The nine-speed automatic transmission is controlled by a rotary e-shifter on the dashboard. Fuel economy is estimated at 18 mpg city and 28 mpg highway (22 mpg combined). That’s a bit better, especially on the highway, than the Town & Country.

Available features include an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a three-pane panoramic sunroof, hands-free sliding doors and liftgate, Enter ‘n Go, and a Uconnect Theater for rear passengers. LED headlights and taillights also are available. Safety options include a 360-degree surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control with stop and hold, forward collision and lane-departure warnings, blind-spot monitoring, a rearview camera, and ParkSense parallel/perpendicular parking assist.

Standard equipment in my Chrysler Pacifica Touring-L edition included:

  • Power liftgate and sliding doors
  • Heated power mirrors
  • Heated front seat
  • Uconnect 5.0
  • Six-speaker audio with satellite radio
  • Second-row power windows
  • Window shades
  • Active noise cancellation
  • Automatic headlights
  • 17-inch aluminum wheels
  • Rearview camera
  • Blind-spot detection

My Touring-L also included optional 13-speaker Alpine stereo and eight-passenger seating.

Performance Pros

Chrysler Pacifica
  • Exceptional ride comfort. With a suspension that’s able to cope readily with nearly all ordinary pavement flaws, the Pacifica simply eases its way through each imperfection, transmitting as little of the roughness as possible.
  • Enthusiastic acceleration at low speeds. Approaching highway velocities, it’s less stirring but well past adequate.

Performance Cons

  • Some snarl can be heard on hard acceleration, at times approaching coarseness. Otherwise, the Pacifica is very quiet-running, especially while idling.
  • Ordinarily I wouldn’t criticize brisk acceleration, but when starting out and at low speed, the Pacifica can feel a little too eager, almost threatening to leap ahead when the gas pedal is barely touched.
  • Overall driving feel isn’t much different than the outgoing minivans provided.

Interior Pros

Chrysler Pacifica
  • Dashboard flows attractively, but gauges are too dark to see easily on sunny days. Despite blue highlighting, speedometer numerals can almost seem to disappear at times.
  • Second-row entry. Oddly, getting aboard seems to demand a substantial climb up, though the floor doesn’t look much higher than the front’s.
  • Second-row bench is a tad hard. Extremely short bottoms give it a cramped feel, as if one is forced to bend forward. Toe space could be bigger, too; though otherwise, space is ample. Surprisingly, the center position is almost more comfortable than the sides.

Interior Cons

  • Dashboard flows attractively, but gauges are too dark to see easily on sunny days. Despite blue highlighting, speedometer numerals can almost seem to disappear at times.
  • Second-row entry. Oddly, getting aboard seems to demand a substantial climb up, though the floor doesn’t look much higher than the front’s.
  • Second-row bench is a tad hard. Extremely short bottoms give it a cramped feel, as if one is forced to bend forward. Toe space could be bigger, too; though otherwise, space is ample. Surprisingly, the center position is almost more comfortable than the sides.

The Most Pleasant Surprise

Familiarity. Those who’ve scorned and scoffed at minivans won’t consider the Pacifica’s minivan-like aura to be a pleasant aspect. I’m not in that group, having long felt that minivans were among the most practical vehicles around, and didn’t deserve such scathing criticism.

The Least Pleasant Surprise

Handling isn’t remarkably better than other minivans provide, though many drivers won’t mind. A Pacifica is easy to drive, but so were the previous minivans.

The Bottom Line

Yes, the Pacifica is immediately identifiable as a minivan, but effectively brought up to date in terms of solid refinement. Still, minivan fans (and plenty remain, despite the negative image the body style developed over the years) should feel right at home.
