2017 Chrysler Pacifica Limited Release Date, Price and Specs

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Limited, the automaker refines everything I love about minivans with attention to detail like how most brands would refine high quality sedan.

The sliding doors are motorized and slide open with the touch of a button. A hands-free feature are allowed opening opened with a wiggle of a foot below the threshold side when the key is present, although the test could preproduction model had the feature disabled. The tailgate is also fed with a characteristic bee feet handsfree like. 

With the elevation of a panel and a tug of a strap, these cubes disappear into the ground in seconds, leaving a completely flat load surface. This model also featured Limited power retractable third-row seats that fold and at the touch of a button.

is a design that makes this engine people actually look like something you might want to handle. It is gone is the boxy upright in favor of a windswept silhouette with rounded edges, sharp detail and a strong step front wheel that makes the van look sporty. The profile of the truck much volume is hidden, making it appear smaller than it is, and the design alludes to the aerodynamics underneath.

It also looks like a spaceship docked with a Ninja turtle when viewed from straight on. This kind of funky look, kind of cool adds to the curb appeal of the Pacific, I think.

Speaking of functions, a new feature of the Chrysler minivan was always a crowd pleaser since its debut in Detroit earlier this year: Ridgid Stow 'n' Vac system. In the third row, stuck on the wall behind the sliding door driver's side is a small panel that slides up to reveal the hose, button and power accessories aspirator on board.

I'm not sure how this is better than just having a vacuum in your garage, but it is certainly attractive. And if cared smaller in the third row of activating the Stow 'n' Vac system is deactivated while the vehicle is running.The audio system 20-speaker Harman Kardon optional sounds pretty good, filling the cabin with sound and contribution to reasonably low levels of road and wind noise at highway speeds with standard active noise cancellation technology.

Before the driver is a dashboard with a couple of large gauges for road and engine speed. Among them is a full-color screen that can switch between a variety of information displays on safety, fuel economy, hands-free calling, navigation, audio source and more with the buttons on the steering wheel.

The nine-speed automatic transmission on the other end of the shift system-by-wire lacks any kind of sporting ambition. With so many reasons to choose the programming and ecofriendly, the gearbox seems well suited for the optimization of the economy, but there are perhaps too many pieces to optimize performance. The transmission may seem indecisive and hesitant to slow down a winding road and without a sport or manual program, I was just kind of stuck dealing with it.

Moreover, a minivan is almost as far from a sports car in the spectrum of the automotive and believe that families will see more value in that MPHS MPGs. When taken with calm in the city - the way a father with a van full of little human would - shifts speed nine proved to be smooth and the engine speed is maintained in the quieter part of swing tachometer.

Despite the gearbox suck almost all of the fun of the drive, standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 Pacifica is really very powerful and efficient. Chrysler tells me that the Pentastar has seen a number of reviews for this generation and now outputs 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is an amount of power that will not win any drag races in a vehicle of this size (U.S.A), but it is enough to make the truck feel competent by the city and on the road and just enough alive.
