2017 Chrysler Pacifica Buyer's Guide

Mixing luxury with practicality.

Chrysler has replaced the aging Town & Country with the all-new Pacifica, our 2017 Minivan Best Buy. The Pacifica has a fresh new look and a quiet, upscale interior that rivals those found in the Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey. While the Pacifica boasts an easy-to-reconfigure interior thanks to Stow ‘n Go hide-in-the-floor seats, and best-in-class fuel economy, its real claim to fame is its wide array of high-tech features. Also, the Chrysler Pacifica offers handy options like a vacuum cleaner, Uconnect Theater and a first-in-its-class hybrid option. While there are plenty of near-luxury options available for the new minivan, you can get a nicely equipped Pacifica at a price that's comparable to the Sienna, Odyssey and Kia Sedona.

Driving It

While the Pacifica's engine and suspension really impress, "What really sets the new Pacifica apart is its interior quiet, furthering the luxury feel imparted by the high-quality materials, design and construction. Making a big box like this quiet at speed isn't easy, and Chrysler is way ahead of rivals like the Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey." Find out more in our 2017 Chrysler Pacifica full review.

Cool Features

The Pacifica's available Stow 'n Go fold-in-the-floor seats are now easier to use than previous versions. There are new features for the Pacifica not previously seen in the Town & Country, namely an around-view camera, a built-in vacuum cleaner and Uconnect Theater, which allows you to download apps, play games from your smartphone and watch movies.

Plug-In Hybrid


In fall 2016, a plug-in hybrid version of the Pacifica will be available. Read more about the first hybrid minivan right here.
