ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. – Chrysler just made minivans cool with the 2017 Pacifica, and it’s something you’ve never seen before!
Chrysler invented the minivan, so it’s only proper that Chrysler make the minivan cool again with the 2017 Pacifica. Since the first creation of the minivan, which was 30 years ago, Chrysler has transformed the segment with 78 innovations across the first five minivan generations.

This minivan was completely re-engineered from the tires on up. It’s build like a vault so interior wind and road noise are kept to a minimum. Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) is standard on every model of the Pacifica to make long car rides, or just your daily commute, more comfortable. The Pacifica is also engineered to have the largest interior volume ever with creative storage areas and available eight-passenger seating.
There are two powertrains available for the Pacifica. First is the hybrid, which will deliver 30 miles solely from electric power using a 16kWh lithium-ion battery. The second powertrain is the gasoline model, which has the award-winning 3.6L Pentastar V-6 engine producing 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.
