2017 Chrysler Pacifica

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Really is All-New in Springfield

Often, an automaker will stamp a model as "all-new". And maybe it has new features and some new lines, new tech, and a re-tuned suspension. But it's never truly new--it's just a spin-off of an existing vehicle. When it comes to the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, though, there's nothing conventional or re-done about it.

This is not the Town & Country; in fact, both the Town & Country and the Grand Caravan are being retired in favor of the new Pacifica. It's built on a customized new platform, to make it feel like a car even while it performs like a heavy-hitting SUV, and offers a new, industry-first hybrid minivan powertrain. If you've been looking for something new and different in Springfield, Dayton, Fairborn, or Urbana, you may have just found it.

2017 Pacifica Performance and Specs

The model's new platform builds out a chassis that is stiffer and a body that is both stronger and lighter; thanks to it, the Pacifica will be about three hundred pounds lighter than the outgoing Town & Country model. Less weight means better handling, a more comfortable ride, and better fuel economy. What does that mean for you? Let's see:

  • Standard 3.6-liter V6 engine producing 287 horsepower, 262 pound-feet of torque
  • Standard nine-speed automatic transmission for smooth gear-shifts
  • Gas EPA estimates: 28 mpg highway / 18 mpg city
  • Plug-in hybrid EPA estimates: 80 MPG city / EV driving range 30 miles
  • Nearly 200 cubic feet of interior passenger and cargo space
  • Release date Spring of 2016

Does the Chrysler Pacifica have all-wheel drive? Currently no--the model is only available with front-wheel drive, but we'll be interested to see if that changes as the minivan gains popularity.
