Minivans, despite falling out of style in recent years, are just as much an emblem of soccer-mom suburbia nowadays as they were during their heydey in the 90s. Now that Chrysler is trying to take advantage of the lack of competitors in the segment with the new Pacifica, the brand is doing its best to broaden the appeal of the minivan to attract a more widespread variety of customers. Their first target? Dads. Jim Gaffigan is the face of the new Chrysler Pacifica ad campaign, which appeals to dads everywhere that minivans aren’t just a mom thing.
Historically, minivans have been stereotyped as being purely associated with women. Most people have a mental image of vans being stuffed full of groceries after a suburban housewife’s grocery shopping spree. However, Gaffigan, creator of TV Land’s “The Jim Gaffigan Show,” spearheads a series of online and TV ads that highlight all the features and functions of the new Chrysler Pacifica — and why “considerate, caring” fathers should put the Pacifica on their must-have list.
Chrysler conceptualized the ad campaign in order to draw attention to the fact that the Pacifica is a minivan for a new generation of parents, a generation in which both parents work and take care of the children equally. Olivier Francois, the chief marketing officer of FCA, says that Gaffigan was chosen because he represents the modern parent.
“He has five children — all five in a 3-12 age range typical of minivan buyers,” said Francois in a press release. “He is married to his business partner wife. They both work full-time. They have an active schedule with their children, and they are always on the go. We were not looking for just a famous face. We were looking for the epitome of the American minivan family, and Jim brings both.”
The Chrysler Pacifica ad campaign insists that minivans aren’t just for mom or for dad — they’re for the modern American family. The idea was to challenge conventions and make a father the proud driver of the Pacifica minivan.
For over 30 years, Chrysler has been leading the market in minivans. Perhaps the most well-known was the Chrysler Town & Country. However, the time has come for the Town & Country to be retired and a new minivan to take the spotlight. The all-new Chrysler minivan is the Pacifica.
This new minivan has been re-engineered on an all-new platform. It is leading its class in all areas by delivering a smooth ride, great fuel economy, and beautiful sculpted styling.
Fast and sophisticated, the Pacifica offers a level of style not found on most minivans. However, this minivan is more than a pretty face. It has more than 100 standard and available safety and security features. There is also an array of comfort and convenience technologies. This includes features such as the integrated vacuum, hands-free lift gates and sliding doors, and Stow’n Go Seating with Assist and Easy Tilt access to the third row.
The Pacifica also comes in a Hybrid which offers up to 80mpg in the city. This is the industry’s first electrified minivan. The hybrid version also has a unique style, with distinctive badging.
The all-new Chrysler Pacifica is brings a whole new level of class, comfort, and function to family vehicles. Come to Cumberland Chrysler Center to test drive this perfect family minivan.
Minivans are a segment that the auto industry has all but abandoned in today’s day and age. Once the iconic family car, they’ve largely been replaced with SUVs. However, while other auto makers have been focusing on churning out sporty sedans and trendy crossovers, Chrysler has seen an opportunity in the nearly-empty minivan segment — which no longer has any competitors. That’s why Chrysler has unveiled the new Pacifica minivan, an innovative new entry to the segment that is attracting attention back to the minivan class.
The Pacifica takes its name from another previous entry in the brand’s lineup. Debuting back in the 2000s, the original Pacifica was less of a minivan and more of a crossover wagon. Chrysler wanted to name to reflect a fresh take on minivans, instead of going with another nameplate already in their lineup, such as the Town & Country.
While the 2017 Pacifica may feature a sleeker look than minivans of the past, Chrysler also didn’t lose sight of the family-friendly practicality central to the philosophy of the minivan. The Pacifica will deliver a more spacious interior than vehicles of the SUV class, a built-in vacuum cleaner, and offer a plug-in hybrid variant capable of the equivalent of 80 mpg.
The new Pacifica minivan will be available spring 2016, with the hybrid version debuting later this year. Other features include a rear seat entertainment system, 20-inch wheels, and automatic parking.
