Test Drive: 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

The automaker formerly known as Chrysler Corp. launched its first minivan models—the Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager—in 1984. Now part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Chrysler remains a dominant, innovative player in the midsize van segment, which once accounted for 6.6% of the U.S. market but now holds a 3.5% share, according to sales data collected by J.D. Power and auto forecasting partner LMC Automotive.

To usher in its next-generation midsize van that raises the bar on exterior and interior design and will challenge competitors—including volume leaders Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey—Chrysler’s successor to the outgoing Town & Country bears a new name: Pacifica. Before the Town & Country gets kicked to the curb, however, it should be noted that it is no slouch in terms of quality, having ranked highest in its segment for three consecutive years in the J.D. Power U.S. Initial Quality StudySM (IQS), including the 2016 study, released last week.

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica may be the most elegant, contemporary front-wheel-drive (FWD) midsize van being sold. Built on a new, stronger steel unibody architecture that is 250 lbs. lighter than that of the Town & Country, Chrysler uses aluminum and magnesium to keep vehicle weight down. Streamlined with curves even around rear-window panels, the Pacifica pulls away from minivan nomenclature. It’s loaded with technology and convenience features to create an ultimate vehicle for family ferrying, sporting events, vacation travel, home improvement cargo, mobile office uses, and even date nights.
