2017 Chrysler Pacifica Engine

8.4/10
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

Every 2017 Chrysler Pacifica comes standard with a 3.6-liter V6 that develops 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That power is sent to the front wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Models Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Honda Odyssey Toyota Sienna 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 287 hp 248 hp 296 hp 276 hp
Torque 262 lb-ft 250 lb-ft 263 lb-ft 248 lb-ft

The Chrysler Pacifica Minivan is packed by one of the most powerful engines in segment lags behind only one of its competitor and that is; Toyota Sienna which comes equipped with a 3.5L 6 Cylinder engine (producing 296 hp and 263 lb-ft torque) and 8-speed automatic transmission.

Acceleration

The Chrysler Pacifica Minivan accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds and that gets it tagged as the slowest car of the segment. This performance disappoints more because it is the lightest car among all, equipped with highest displacement engine and torque and power production is above average as well.

Models Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Honda Odyssey Toyota Sienna 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 quickest car in competition is the Honda Odyssey which sways up from rest to a speed of 60 mph in 6.6 seconds only.

Handling and Steering

The 2017 Pacific flaunts a pleasantly smooth and calm ride, even with the bigger 20-inch wheels indicated. The steering wheel is well-weighted, however street input is absolutely nonexistent. There's very little body move around turns, so travelers won't feel disgusted while the van climbs soak mountain grades.

The V6 feels solid off the line, if you push the accelerator pedal sufficiently far to keep the nine-speed transmission from upshifting. The transmission moves into high riggings rapidly and is reluctant to downshift when you require more power, yet upshifts aren't as herky-jerky as in those different autos.

Braking

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.

Model Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Honda Odyssey Toyota Sienna Kia Sedona
Brake Front (in.) 13.0 13.1 12.2 12.6
Brake Rear (in.) 13.0 12.6 12.9 11.9
Curb Weight (lbs.) 4330 4396 4375 4414
60-0 MPH (ft.) 131 127 128 125

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.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Fuel Economy

8.3/10

The Chrysler Pacifica Minivan is the most fuel efficient car in competition and it ensure that you will not have to search for fuel pumps frequently when you are on a ride with your 'big engine' companion.

Model Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Honda Odyssey Toyota Sienna Kia Sedona
MPG (city) 19 19 19 18
MPG (highway) 28 27 27 24
MPG (combined) 22 22 22 20

The Chrysler Pacifica Minivan fetches a fuel economy of 19 MPG (city), 28 MPG (highway) and 22 MPG (combined). Although most of its competitors succeed in getting around the same numbers but still not exactly the same which gives this car an upper hand over others.

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

The Chrysler Pacifica seats seven people in its standard configuration and can handle up to eight if you choose the optional second-row bench seat. The front seats are supportive and comfortable, even on long road trips.

Every one of the three rows is roomy and fit for seating grown-ups. However, there is a trade-off to Pacifica's second-and-third rows. These Stow and Go seats overlay advantageously into the floor, making it simple to change over the Pacifica from traveler van to freight hauler in a moment or two.

Model Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Honda Odyssey Toyota Sienna Kia Sedona
Passenger capacity 7 7 7 7
Front (Head/Shoulder/Leg) (In.) 40.1/63.8/41.1 39.7/64.4/- 41.0/65.0/40.5 39.8/63.9/40.9
Second (Head/Shoulder/Leg) (In.) 39.6/63.0/39.0 39.5/63.5/40.9 39.7/64.6/37.6 39.4/63.1/41.4

All things considered, these seats aren't as agreeable or as movable as the ones you'll discover in rivals like the Odyssey and Sienna. Chrysler needed to make the seat cushioning more slender so the seats could fit under the floor.

Interior Features

Interior features include:

  • Seven-passenger seating
  • Folding/collapsible second-row Stow 'n Go seats
  • 60/40-split folding third-row seat
  • An eight-way power driver seat (with four-way power lumbar)
  • Three-zone climate control

  • An eight-way power driver seat (with four-way power lumbar)
  • Three-zone climate control
  • A tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel
  • An electric parking brake

Infotainment

The 2017 Pacifica comes standard with:

  • A 5-inch touchscreen
  • AM/FM radio
  • Bluetooth
  • USB ports
  • Voice commands
  • Uconnect Access
  • Six-speaker sound system with a USB and auxiliary inputs

Cargo

Behind the third-row seats, the Pacifica offers 32.3 cubic feet of luggage space. Fold those seats down and 87.5 cubic feet becomes available. Maximum cargo capacity is 140.5 cubes. These capacities are typical for the latest batch of minivans.

Model Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Honda Odyssey Toyota Sienna Kia Sedona
Cargo Volume to seats 1 (ft.3) 140.5 148.5 150.0 142.0
Cargo Volume to seats 2 (ft.3) 87.5 93.1 87.1 78.4
Cargo Volume to seats 3 (ft.3) 32.3 38.4 39.1 33.9

Cargo space offered in Chrysler Pacifica Minivan is the least in the segment. Although it is the biggest car in competition in terms of exterior dimensions, it fails to impress when it comes to interior spaciousness and cargo spacing. Toyota Sienna, on the other hand, proves to be the car with largest cargo space; offering 150.0 cubic feet of space when the second and third-row seats are collapsed.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Exterior

9.6/10
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

Dimensions and Weight

Chrysler Pacifica Minivan is the biggest car in competition, measuring 203.6 inches in length, 79.6 inches in width and 69.9 inches in height, none of its competitors is even close to these numbers. Although it offers relatively less ground clearance, but this fact can be neglected over its other dimensions.
