All-New 2017 Pacifica Gives ‘Going Green’ a Whole New Meaning

Not many are aware of the fact that Chrysler was the original creator of the minivan, with the industry staple making its debut over 30 years ago. Over time, Chrysler innovated and improved the industry segment it invented, adding over 78 innovations through five minivan generations. In an unsurprising move, Chrysler is doing more of the same with the 2017 Pacifica, except this time they may have perfected it.


“The all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is truly a no-compromises minivan, giving customers everything they need or want,” said Timothy Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands, FCA - North America. “We started from the ground up to design the most technologically advanced minivan, which offers bold styling, class-leading ride and handling, and unmatched fuel economy, with the Pacifica Hybrid delivering up to 80 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in city driving. The all-new Chrysler Pacifica was thoughtfully designed and engineered to provide unsurpassed levels of comfort, convenience, technology and functionality, making it the perfect combination for modern families.”


Perhaps the feature that jumps out very first on the 2017 Pacifica is its 80 MPGe fuel economy rating. On top of the unmatched gas mileage, the new Pacifica comes with a plug-in feature, which gives the onboard battery enough power to travel 30 miles without using a drop of gas, which means that if owners of the new Pacifica drive less than 30 miles per day, they technically shouldn’t ever need to buy gas.


“With nearly 40 innovations not offered by any others in its class, the all-new Chrysler Pacifica is the new benchmark in the segment that we invented more than 30 years ago,” Kuniskis said. “The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica offers more features – and at a better value than our key competitors – on each and every trim level.”


The look and feel of the new Pacifica aren’t the only updates Chrysler added in the redesign. The van’s safety and security technology is state-of-the-art, and includes parking assist technology, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning technology and lane departure warning technology. Other available features include blind-spot monitoring and an electric park brake.


“The Pacifica isn’t just engineered for today,” says Mark Chernoby, Chief Operating Officer Product Development and Head of Product Portfolio Management for FCA’s Group Executive Council. “This vehicle is designed and crafted to enhance the lives of our customers for years to come.”
