Model Overview: 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Reviews and Specs

Aug 18, 2019 6:00:00 PM / by The Pit Boss

Chrysler Pacifica reviews for the 2017 model show that driving a family-friendly minivan can actually be a fun ride.

The Pacifica was the first jointly engineered produce of the 1998 DaimlerChrysler merger, but production took a break from the model after 2008. Chrysler’s lineup brought the Pacifica back to life for the 2017 generation and released the model with an attractive styling that’s inspired by the Chrysler 200 sedan. Below are the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica specs and reviews reported from research and drivers of the LX model.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Review

The 2017 Pacifica comes with six different model options that range from the Limited, Touring, Touring-Plus, Touring L and LX models. As far as Chrysler Pacifica reviews from drivers, downsides of the 2017 models include no all-wheel-drive options, unlike its competitor the Toyota Sienna. However, the price point of the Pacifica is competitive compared to other loaded minivans, while the Stow’n’Go (found in gas-only models) and power-folding third-row seats provide an abundance of seating and storage capacity for the cost.

The 2017 Pacifica also includes all the latest and greatest tech gadgets and upgrades for the model year, with such convenience upgrades as the onboard vacuum, self-parking aid, hands-free power liftgate, UConnect infotainment system with 8.4-inch touchscreen, and a 360-degree view multi-camera system.

Amenities of the 2017 Pacifica include Talk to Text functions, keyless ignition, power four wheel disc brakes with ABS, phone Bluetooth connections, and privacy glass.
