When we were looking to upgrade our current minivan, we went to see a number of different options that we thought would be what we where looking for. We looked at the Honda and Toyota options before checking out the Pacifica. Overall, we liked the Honda the best for quality and ride comfort, but the price was a good amount more then the Pacifica. We decided for the price savings it was worth it to go with the Pacifica over the other two options. We have not had the new minivan for that long but are already really concerned about the over build quality and how long this vehicle will last us. We have had a couple of trim pieces already break off and noises coming from the engine that have had to go into the dealer for warranty work. This was not what I would expect from a two-year-old ca... (more)
Story
It's nice going to a parking lot and finding the car fairly fast. It stands out a lot more then other minivans on the market, which is nice. We can also haul a lot of people and things inside of it which is fun.
Pros
The seats are comfortable and make you want to sit in them for a while, even through a long road trip. The styling is nice for a minivan and stands out around other options that we looked at.
Cons
The build quality of the car overall and ride quality. It does not feel that nice to drive for long distances. You definitely will feel the bumps in the road. I would not want to take this on a long trip.

We purchased this vehicle because we recently had two children and needed to be able to fit and easily access two car seats plus have space for groceries and other cargo. As far as fulfilling these requirements goes, the Chrysler Pacifica has been a wonderful choice. We use the back bench seat for one car seat and the passenger side middle seat for the other. We keep the driver side middle seat in the stow and go storage unless we are transporting enough people to need it. This allows both of my children to be able to get into their seats themselves and gives me easy access to each in order to secure them in with their belts. The stow and go storage has also been wonderful for the two long road trips that we have taken so far. The floor space allows me to sit in the back with the girls... (more)
Story
I took the children to a city park, and they decided to play in the splash pad, even though I had not brought their swim suits. The van had enough open space for me to get their clothes changed comfortably once they were done, and we all had a great time playing in the water.
Pros
Automatic doors, lots of interior space, stow and go seating so you don't have to store the unused seats outside the van, separate climate controls for front and back.
Cons
Low gas mileage in the city, sometimes jerky shifting, air conditioning sometimes "takes a break" when driving far, getting warmer, then cooler again after some time.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Overview

Pros:

  • Vast improvement over its predecessor.
  • Seat-folding system allows for extensive versatility.
  • Good driving dynamics for such a large vehicle.
  • Good fuel economy, even better in hybrid models.

Cons:

  • Second-row seats are flat and uncomfortable.
  • A few low-grade interior plastics.
  • Lacks an all-wheel-drive option.

Would we buy one? Definitely.

Vehicle Type: A minivan with seven or eight seats.

Price Range: From $29,590 MSRP to $46,900 MSRP.

Powertrain: A 3.6-liter V6 with 287 horsepower, with a nine-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel-drive.

A 3.6-liter V6 with two electric motors and a 16-kWh battery pack, producing a total of 260 horsepower, with an electric continuously variable transmission and front-wheel-drive.

Competitors: Dodge Grand Caravan, Kia Sedona, Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey, Ford Transit Connect, and Nissan Quest.


Overall Score: 8/10

Safety Features: 8/10

Standard safety features are few, but include a full complement of airbags, stability control, and a backup camera. Though driver assistance tech is limited in standard configuration, there are plenty of available features depending on the model. These include blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, parking assistance, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and a surround-view camera system.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the Chrysler Pacifica a 2017 Top Safety Pick Plus designation when equipped with LED headlights and optional driver assistance equipment. The Pacifica also fared well in crash tests, with the NHTSA giving it an overall 5-star score.


Value: 7/10

The Chrysler Pacifica is quite a bit more expensive than the aged Dodge Grand Caravan but offers more substance at every trim level. Pricing is much more in line with modern competitors from Honda and Toyota, which became the class standard before the Pacifica arrived.

SUV shoppers looking for similar space but don't need all-wheel-drive or off-road abilities should also look at the Pacifica. They can find loads of functionality, tech, and luxury in the Chrysler, and it can sometimes cost less than a similar three-row SUV.


Tech Features: 8/10

In a segment where features matter more than any other, the Chrysler Pacifica has a long list of standard and available tech. Lower-tier models come equipped with a 5.0-inch touchscreen running Chrysler's intuitive Uconnect infotainment system. Uconnect is hands-free and Bluetooth capable. Base models also get three-zone automatic climate control and keyless entry.

Chrysler Pacifica Touring-L Plus and Limited trims offer an 8.4-inch touchscreen and Uconnect Theater and a rear-seat entertainment system that features dual 10-inch touchscreens. Also available are hands-free, kick-to-open sliding doors and a power liftgate, remote start, panoramic sunroof, and a built-in navigation system that puts turn by turn direction right in between the gauges. Notably absent for 2017 are Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.


Practicality: 9/10

The name to remember here is Stow N' Go. The seating and storage system found in the Chrysler Pacifica and Fiat Chrysler stablemate Dodge Grand Caravan is the most practical in its class. With a claimed 243 different configurations, the Pacifica can meet almost any hauling task. When folded away, the van has a genuinely flat floor, and when the seats are up, it opens a sizeable amount of covered underfloor storage in the second row.

The Pacifica has seating for 7 or 8 people, including up to 5 sets of LATCH points for child seats. New Easy Tilt second-row seats make getting to the third row rear seats more accessible, even when child seats are in place. The Chrysler Pacifica can accommodate all but the largest families.

One limiting factor is the front-wheel-drive only configuration. The Toyota Sienna is the only minivan to offer all-wheel drive, and every three-row SUV also offers it. That may be a turn-off to buyers in particularly snowy climates.


Styling & Design: 7/10

Chrysler succeeded in changing the design narrative from the old Town & Country minivan. The new Chrysler Pacifica has an admittedly handsome and exciting exterior styling, more than catching up to the best-looking competition.

Inside, materials at all trim levels are a vast improvement over the outgoing Town & Country. There are still some plasticky parts, and interior assembly may suffer from Chryslers' ghosts, and some panels even feel a little loose. Generally, there are plenty of storage spaces, controls are located well and simple to use, and seating is comfortable. The Stow N' Go middle row does suffer for its functionality, not delivering the comfort of most second-row seats in the competition.


Driving Experience: 8/10

Reviewers found the Chrysler Pacifica to deliver truly car-like driving dynamics. Chrysler integrated a lot of aluminum to strengthen and stiffen the chassis while still dropping weight compared to the outgoing model. Even the heavier Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid delivered a reasonably nimble driving experience, though the minivan doesn't have much steering feel.

The drivetrain delivers adequate power, and the 3.6-liter V6 is found in numerous Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram products. The nine-speed automatic transmission, however, sometimes hesitates when selecting a different gear. That isn't a problem in the hybrid variant.


Fuel Efficiency: 9/10

The Chrysler Pacifica receives EPA estimated fuel economy of 28 mpg highway, 18 mpg city, and 22 mpg combined. That is just short of the best in class conventionally powered minivan.

The Pacifica Hybrid gets an EPA estimated 84 MPGe, the equivalent of running on combined gasoline and total electric power. It achieves a combined 32 mpg rating and an estimated 30 miles of all-electric range.
