The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is the latest addition to the brand’s lineup and it brings plenty of innovative features along with it. The new minivan replaces the outgoing Town & Country, leaving plenty of room for development and success.

The Pacifica is built with over 100 standard and available safety and security features, ensuring that this minivan is among the best of the best. Among them are several advanced technologies designed to make the road safer.
The 360-degree Surround View Camera ensures that drivers can keep an eye on every angle surrounding their vehicle on the touchscreen. Meanwhile, ParkSense Rear Park Assist with Stop and Rear Cross-Path Detection ensures that even if you can’t see it, the Pacifica will.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go will automatically adjust the Pacifica’s speed according to the vehicle in front of it. The system will also come to a stop then continue driving, making any drive that much easier. Complete with Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is the ultimate minivan when it comes to safety.
We here at Cumberland Chrysler Center are happy to see the newest addition to the lineup taking safety to a whole new level!
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.
