2017 Chrysler Pacifica earns Top Safety Pick+

640 × 480
I consider the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica a winner in many respects. For one, it is making the minivan cool again and shaking up what was a niche on the edge of extinction. For another, it is now regarded as a pretty safe vehicle according to the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) anyway, as they have just awarded the new Chrysler Top Safety Pick+.

The new Chrysler Automatic Emergency Braking system that features in the Pacifica was rated as ‘Superior’ which is currently the top rating for safety tech. So as well as revitalizing the niche, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is now also one of the safest vehicles on the road. Just what you need when you have your family on board!

2017 Chrysler Pacifica
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is a breath of fresh air. A new way to haul the family around with style and comfort. Replacing the inimitable Town & Country was never going to be easy but the Pacifica does that and so much more. It’s a contemporary take on the minivan and as a people carrier, it does everything credibly well.

The design is sleek and refined. The rounded front end is curvy in all the right places and is suitably understated for a family vehicle. The profile is similar to the T&C but much more modern. Body panels have a little detailing at the waistline and around the sills but are otherwise unadorned and left alone.

On the inside, there is as much space as you would expect from a people hauler. Three rows of seating with an optional middle seat for the second row, lots of storage throughout, lots of headroom, legroom and even a little cargo room in back. All combine to add a lot of practicality. Comfortable seating, a nice driving position and lots of glass all make for a very comfortable driving experience.

The 3.6-litre V6 engine that powers the Pacifica is the tried and tested Chrysler unit that features throughout their stable. It is powerful, reliable and quiet, all things you need in a minivan. It produces 287 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque and uses a nine-speed automatic transmission to send power smoothly to the front wheels.

Owners so far have said the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is a very accomplished vehicle with lots of practical elements that make family life much easier. The engine and driving experience is smooth and quiet and living with it day to day is a breeze. That says the recipe is just right and delivers exactly what hard working Canadian families demand of their minivans.
