It’s not easy finding the perfect toothpaste. Infinitely more difficult is finding the perfect family vehicle.

“This one doesn’t have enough safety features.”
“That one isn’t ‘tech-friendly’.”
“Can I go 5 feet without having to fill up the tank?”

For the longest time, there truly wasn’t one go-to ride for the entire brood…that is until now. Cars.com recently unveiled their ‘Best of 2017’ list, and on it was the all-new Chrysler Pacifica minivan.

From the outside, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica looks like more than just a minivan, with its sculpted look and available features like the Tri-Pane Panoramic Sunroof, chrome accents and 20-in aluminum wheels. Arms full? The Chrysler Pacifica doesn’t slack on convenience, thanks to new innovations like Hands-Free Sliding Doors and a Hands-Free Power Liftgate.

If you thought the outside was great, the interior will blow your socks of. Heated leather-trimmed seats will ensure a comfortable ride, while the class-exclusive Stow ’n Go Seating and Storage System will allow for true flexibility. With seating of up to 8 passengers, there’s bound to be a mess or two along the way. The popular Stow ’n Vac system is powered by RIDGID®, and will reach the entire cabin.

For the tech-savvy shopper, the Uconnect Theater is available and includes dual 10.1-in HD touchscreen with dual HDMI inputs, a Blu-ray player, Bluetooth remotes and much more. Up front sits the available 8.4-in touchscreen which includes a customizable home screen, Siri® Eyes Free and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.

To be a legit family ride, it needs to keep said family safe. Available features found in the new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica include:

  • 360º Surround View Camera
  • Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking
  • ParkSense Rear Park Assist System
  • Rear Cross Path Detection
  • LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist
  • Blind Spot Monitoring System

Last but not least, under the hood sits the award-winning 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with 9-speed automatic transmission – giving an amazing EPA rating of 28 mpg highway. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica also carries Best-in-Class status for towing, at an astonishing 3,600 lb capacity.

So to say the Chrysler Pacifica is just ‘any other minivan’ would be like calling the sun a ‘glorified lightbulb’. To check out the new 2017 Pacifica, visit your local Chrysler Pacifica dealer at River Front Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram in North Aurora.
