A 3.6-liter V6 engine comes mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission and FWD configuration for all the six trim offerings of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. It churns out 287 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. It does deliver a competent power reading but fails to perform in terms of acceleration.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica

However, it delivers the best in terms of fuel efficiency and safety features. The interiors are simply breathtaking, as it is adorned with utmost opulence. The exteriors are redesigned for the 2017 model year and add to the overall package of comfort and power.

We recommend

We would recommend you go in for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica LX trim priced at $28,995. It delivers the most value for money, meeting the needs of a family carrier and other weekend getaways. But if you need hi-tech features as well and more comfort and space, Limited trim or Touting-L trim may do the job.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Engine and Performance

7.8/10

"The Chrysler Pacifica was once a forgettable SUV. In 2017 it was reborn as a minivan, and it’s an excellent pick. In fact, we named it the 2017 Best Minivan for the Money." - Cars.USnews 

Engine and Transmission of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

Common to all the six trims offered by the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan is a 3.6L V6 engine, regardless of its price that ranges between $28,995-$42,895. This engine churns out 287 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. Its drivetrain duties are taken care of by a 9-speed automatic transmission that delivers the power to the front row of wheels.

Models 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan 2017 Honda Odyssey 2017 Toyota Sienna 2017 Kia Sedona
MSRP $28,995 $29,850 $29,750 $26,900
Engine 3.6L 6 cyl 3.5L 6cyl 3.5L 6 cyl 3.3L 6cyl
Transmission 9-speed automatic 6-speed automatic 8-speed Automatic 6-speed automatic
Horsepower (hp@RPM) 287 hp @ RPM 248 hp @ RPM 296 hp @ RPM 276 hp @ RPM
Torque (lb-ft@RPM) 262 lb-ft  @ RPM 250 lb-ft @ RPM 263 lb-ft @ RPM 248 lb-ft @ RPM

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica offers one of the most powerful engines in its class. However, it is overpowered by just one competitor, the 2017 Toyota Sienna, which produces 296hp and 263 lb-ft of torque.

Acceleration of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

With an ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds The Chrysler Pacifica Minivan gets the tag of the slowest car in the segment. This is highly disappointing as to the contrary Pacifica has the highest engine displacement and torque production numbers among its competition, Toyota being an exception.

Models 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan 2017 Honda Odyssey 2017 Toyota Sienna 2017 Kia Sedona
0-60 MPH 7.8 sec 6.6 sec 7.0 sec 7.6 sec
Quarter mile 15.1 sec 15.0 sec 15.5 sec 15.9 sec
Engine 3.6 L 3.5L 3.5L 3.3L

The 2017 Honda Odyssey proves to be the fastest minivan in consideration, as it clocks 0-60 mph in just 6.6 seconds. It is indeed surprising that the Toyota Sienna with the highest power and torque in the segment ranks 2nd, clocking the 0-60 in 7 seconds flat.

Handling and Steering of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

Equipped with a V6 under its hood the Chrysler Pacifica provides you with enough acceleration that gives you an enjoyable cruise. Its curb weight of 4330 pounds, making it the lightest in the segment, gives it the ability to easily get into tight corners.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica

Further, the handling of this minivan is taken care of by its 20-inch wheels, delivering a smooth and calm ride. Moreover, the steering wheel is well-weighted and the inputs are finely delivered to the wheels. Even the transmission is smooth and goes well with the RPMs

Braking performance of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

The braking performance of this car disappoints even more than its acceleration. It has the poorest braking in the segment. Equipped with brake pads both of which measure 13.0 inches and being the lightest in the segment, it still covers 131 ft. before coming to rest from a speed of 60 mph.

Curb Weight (lbs.) 4330 4396 4375 4414
60-0 MPH (ft.) 131 127 128 125

The 2017 Kia Sedona on the other hand has the best braking performance. It has the highest curb weight among all its competitors but still amazes by its performance by coming to rest in just 125 ft. It is closely followed by the 2017 Honda Odyssey that comes to a halt in 127 feet. The Toyota Sienna takes 128 feet for the same.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Fuel Economy

6.0/10

"The standard Pacifica gets 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, which is good for a minivan." - Cars.USnews

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan has the best in class gas mileage in spite of it being priced at just $28,995-$42,895, it delivers a fine reading of 19 miles to a gallon in the city, 28 miles to a gallon on highways, and 22 miles to a gallon as its combined reading. For its price range of $28,995, the gas mileage it offers is a boon.

Models 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan 2017 Honda Odyssey 2017 Toyota Sienna 2017 Kia Sedona
MPG (city) 19 19 19 18
MPG (highway) 28 27 27 24
MPG (combined) 22 22 22 20
Fuel Tank Capacity (Gallons) 19 21 20 21

Up against its competition, the 2017 Honda Odyssey and the 2017 Toyota Sienna offer the identical reading, Honda grabs an advantage with an additional gallon for its fuel tank capacity. The 2017 Kia Sedona is left behind with the least offering in class.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Interior

9.0/10
"Airy, spacious, and packed with cubbies, cupholders, slide-out bins, and connectivity, the Pacifica is big on the features that minivan buyers love. Fit, finish, and materials are several steps above the outgoing Town & Country or the Dodge Grand Caravan, but a few down-market plastic pieces lurk inside the cabin." -Caranddriver

Seating and Comfort of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

Chrysler is a brand that emphasizes comfort and luxury, and where better would it portray its opulence other than the interiors. With an ability to accommodate seven people as its standard configuration, it can also handle 8 if one chooses the optional second-row bench seat.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Interiors

Unlike other minivans in the segment, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan offers a very spacious interior across all three rows of seating. The seeds come with the store and go feature, this helps in converting a traveler van into a freight hauler in a jiffy.

Considering it being spacious as one side of the coin while the seat-mobility is the other, it seems like the Pacific has scarred the second side. You will notice that the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna make more comfortable interiors in terms of the movement of seats.

Offering a decent cargo space, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan isn't the best in class. It is in fact the least in class with a cargo room that measures 32.3 cubic feet as its basic offering.

8.0/10

"A box is a box, but the Pacifica is undeniably a good-looking box, with a crisp, sleek profile and an intriguing slash of a rear roof pillar. The Pacifica is both the tallest and widest van in the segment, which helps with interior roominess." - Caranddriver

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Vs. 2017 Honda Odyssey

The Honda Odyssey has built for itself a position in the market of minivans. It also offers the next best fuel efficiency in the segment after the Pacifica. However, the Honda is priced slightly above the Chrysler, at $29,850 but, yet offers only the least in terms of power and torque. The interiors of the Chrysler are any day better than what Honda has to offer. And thus the 2017 Pacific is a better option than the Odyssey.
