2017 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Coming This Spring

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, re-engineered from the ground up on an all-new platform, will be available in six models featuring a 287 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine mated to a segment-exclusive TorqueFlite nine-speed automatic transmission. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, available in two models, will deliver an estimated range of 30 miles solely on zero-emissions electric power from a 16-kWh lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery. In city driving, it is expected to achieve an efficiency rating of 80 MPGe based on U.S. EPA standards. The Chrysler Pacifica offers more than 100 standard and available safety and security features, including 360-degree Surround View camera, ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Hold and Forward Collision Warning-Plus. The Chrysler Pacifica will be available in dealer showrooms in spring 2016, with the Pacifica Hybrid arriving in the second half of 2016.
