2017 Chrysler Pacifica Overview

 

At Reed Chrysler, we have not one, but four different brands that are offered here. While the choice of options is plentiful, it’s also a lot to sift through. In this series, we’ll be going over the 2017 lineup for all four makes we have – Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram. Within each brand, we will go over each model as well. First up is the classic and noteworthy Chrysler brand.

This year, 2017, has been a pretty dramatic model year for Chrysler. They have created an entirely new concept in the Chrysler Pacifica, what Chrysler describes as “the new benchmark of minivans.” Many are familiar with the old standby, the Chrysler Town & Country, but the Pacifica is its newer, refined cousin. Chrysler has poured all of their efforts into the Pacifica; the Town & Country will no longer be produced in 2017. Before we go over some of the great features the Pacifica offers, I will warn you, I am not going to go in-depth about what specific features do; I did, however, create a glossary of features if you’d like a more in-depth description.

Let’s take a look at the newest member of the Chrysler family. New in 2017, this is the most outstanding minivan on the market. The Pacifica has five trim levels: LX, Touring, Touring L, Touring L Plus, and Limited. Being the most basic, the LX starts at around $28,595, while the Limited, with all the bells and whistles, can range upwards of around $48,000. Each trim level builds upon itself, so higher trim levels will have what is listed in addition to what has already been mentioned.

*Disclaimer: Unfortunately, due to the way it’s set up, you can either have seating for eight OR the panoramic sunroof – not both. I know, how can the world go on?*

Really, the only thing that the Pacifica doesn’t have is a bathroom. But you should probably take a break now and again and stretch your legs, so it all works out. By the way, did I mention how sleek they look? This is probably the closest you can get to not looking like a minivan while still being a minivan. I mean, look at it.
