What You Will Like

The Chrysler Pacifica starts at under $28,000, where it competes with other minivans such as the Toyota Sienna and the Honda Odyssey, both of which it undercuts a little bit on price. However the entire minivan segment holds a ton of value, by virtue of being cheaper to own and operate than the myriad of medium and large SUVs out in the world. The Chrysler Pacifica combines a ton of space, with relatively compact and easy to park exterior dimensions, along with a curb weight that makes car-like mpg figures a reality. The Pacifica is also available with a ton of luxurious and entertaining features, which will really show their value on long road trips with children in tow. But no matter the equipment level, the new Pacifica is a fantastic value.

What's New For 2017

The Chrysler Pacifica is a brand new vehicle for 2017. It replaces the Town and Country as the only minivan in Chrysler's lineup, sharing very little with the outgoing vehicle. One look at the new Pacifica is all it takes to see just how much has changed since last year. The Pacifica is smooth, sleek and extremely handsome by minivan standards, making the outgoing Town and Country look uninspired and dull by comparison. The interior is all new as well of course, with more features and technology than ever before. The 2017 Pacifica should be a fantastic vehicle for moving bigger groups of people about comfortably, conveniently and at a price that won't break the bank.

Introduction

Chrysler invented the minivan and has now reinvented it with the all-new 2017 Pacific, a vehicle packed with technology, boasting at least 100 safety features, chock-a-block with family-friendly enhancements, available in two versions, including the segment’s first plug-in hybrid.

Reinvention entails a new platform, sheetmetal that can reasonably called sleek, and a new name. The name is a little curious. Previously, Pacifica was the name assigned to a mid-size crossover that lacked only sliding rear doors to be called a minivan. Its lifespan was brief, 2004-2008, and it is not one of Chrysler’s treasured memories.

Be that as it may, Chrysler wanted to replace the Town & Country name, as a symbol of the new vehicle’s break with the past. No one is trying to pretend it’s not a minivan; those sliding doors are impossible to disguise. On the other hand, the marketing troops think the multitude of features, increased versatility and slick new skin will dilute the irrational prejudice against the minivan.

Basics: Chrysler Pacifica is offered in seven- and eight-passenger configurations, with middle-row seats that recline and also adjust fore and aft.

The standard engine is Chrysler’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, mildly tweaked to deliver 287 horsepower and 282 pound-feet of torque. The V6 sends power to the front wheels (no all-wheel drive option) via a 9-speed automatic transmission. It’s EPA-rated for 18/22 mpg City/Highway on Regular gasoline.

The V6 is augmented by an electric motor in the Pacifica Hybrid, along with a continuously variable transmission. Chrysler anticipates an MPGe rating (miles per gallon equivalency) of 80. Chrysler predicts an electric-only range of 30 miles.

Lineup

The 2017 Pacifica comes in five trim levels, plus the late-arriving hybrid version: Pacifica LX ($28,595); Pacifica Touring ($30,455); Pacifica Touring L ($34,495); Pacifica Touring L Plus ($37,895); Pacifica Limited ($42,495). (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge of $895.)

Walkaround

With its sculpted body panels, wider stance, laid back windshield, upper grille morticing into wraparound headlights, and available 20-inch alloy wheels (a segment first), the Pacifica is as close to sexy as any minivan has ever come. Chrysler’s trick of hiding the sliding door tracks just below the rear windows does a better job of disguising their presence than competing vans, and the rear window has a wraparound appearance.

An available three-panel sunroof, the rearmost pane is fixed, the other two open, runs from front to rear, amplifying a bright interior that feels airy even in base trim.

Another nifty new feature: Waving your foot beneath the rear bumper will activate the power rear liftgate. That’s been with us for awhile, thanks to Ford. But Ford doesn’t have a minivan, so it was left to Chrysler to develop the idea for sliding side doors. The side doors will also operate simply by touching the handles.

Pacifica’s gestation included a lot of wind tunnel time, which paid off in terms of reduced interior noise and at the gas pump.

Interior

The new Pacifica comes with the latest version of Chrysler’s Stow ‘n Go fold-flat second- and third-row seats, re-engineered to make folding them into the floor even easier, leaving a truly flat surface and a vast cargo hold. This is the best design of its kind in the business, and it optimizes the fundamental trait in which minivans excel: versatility. These seats are not available on the hybrid version, however, due to the space taken up by the battery packs.

Another nifty feature is the Stow ‘n Vac on-board vacuum cleaner. Yes, the Honda Odyssey was first with this idea, but Chrysler improves on it. The system stows in the left side of the body, just behind the second-row door, the readily accessible bag is in the left side wall of the cargo compartment, and the vac includes a 14-foot hose, with an additional 14 feet offered as an accessory.

Like all contemporary minivans, the Pacifica offers a rear seat entertainment system, this one equipped with a pair of 10-inch touchscreens integrated into the upper front seatbacks. In addition to movies, games, and other visual and audible diversions, Chrysler furnishes apps, including Are We There Yet, allowing rear seat occupants to track the progress of their journey.

Up front, Chrysler has adapted its dial-a-gear transmission control, pioneered in the Ram pickup truck (the Rotary E-shift), into the attractive and intuitive center dash array, which also includes a big (8.4-inch) color screen and a sensible array of switches and knobs. The test of any system is whether it can be operated without resorting to the owner’s manual, and here’s one vehicle whose primary and auxiliary controls present no mysteries.

Chrysler boasts more than 100 safety features for the Pacifica. Among them: adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert, auto emergency braking, 360-degree surround view, and rear view camera.

Driving Impressions

Chrysler Pacifica’s structure is all new, and distinctly more robust than that of the outgoing Town & Country; the suspension has been refined; and the engineering team expended a lot of effort on making this the most civilized minivan going. However, civilized does not necessarily mean fun to drive.

The Pacifica is responsive, with adequate power from its updated Pentastar V6 engine, and the 9-speed automatic transmission is a smooth operator. But all of these traits have limits, limits you’d expect of a large front-drive vehicle whose dynamic development priority was comfort. Understeer is easily achieved in any cornering activity that resembles haste, passing performance on two-lane highways takes a little longer than one might like, the electric power steering could be a little more informative, and the transmission hunts up and down a little too much in hilly driving.

But all those traits could also be ascribed to any number of SUVs, and the Pacifica excels in dynamics important to the all-around family mission: excellent ride quality without going too squishy and quiet interior at any speed on any surface. This is a pleasant place for a family to be as the miles slide by, especially when the Pacifica is equipped with the rear seat entertainment system.

We can’t comment on the behavior of the hybrid version, since our first drive was confined to the standard gasoline edition. The hybrid comes along later. But we anticipate that its behavior will be similar, with the addition of pure electric propulsion and exceptional fuel economy.

Summary

Quiet, comfortable, competent, and potent enough to avoid feeling sluggish, the Pacifica is loaded with tech, safety, and infotainment features. Its stylish exterior makes most crossover SUVs look boxy, and its practicality index is top-of-the charts. The pace of change in contemporary automotive development is dizzying, and it’s rare for any carmaker to maintain leadership indefinitely in any category. But for now, Chrysler once again rules the world of minivans.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
