Overview

Keeping in mind the bread-earners who keep their carbon-footprint in mind, Chrysler introduced its Pacifica hybrid hybrid. This new minivan vaults Chrysler from last place into a best-in-class. The lifeless progress of Chrysler can be wrapped up with this Minivan. It's another name for another van, so inspire arranged to reset your wants.

With another name, comprehensive inside and outside updates, and a large group of included features, the new-for-2017 Pacifica hybrid is an aid for the sliding-door shuttle with a hybrid powertrain which keeps the cabin silent and more steady.

This is Chrysler's sixth period of the superlative child hauler, which has never been quicker, better-looking, or more fuel profitable. Amazingly, the new van made sense of how to shed some load in its refresh while getting altogether stiffer and acing NHTSA and IIHS crash tests.

The Chrysler Pacifica hybrid 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.

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 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 segment, it still covers 131 ft. before coming to rest from a speed of 60 mph. 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.

Fuel Economy

Interior

9.7/10

“There's a lot of room in the Pacifica hybrid, but the seating position in the second row can be a little tight.”-Edmunds

Investing energy in the old Town and Country minivan is somewhat similar to hanging out at the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum — bunches of flawless stuff to play with, yet a dated vibe is unavoidable. The Pacifica hybrid's dashboard has a cutting edge and streaming look that is finished off by the new metallic revolving gear selector handle that looks and feels more upscale than the normal thickset minivan shifter.

Chrysler has likewise received the more open feel of the Odyssey and Sienna by taking out the T&C's customary focus comfort and rather running with an open floor between the driver and traveler. This makes more accessible stockpiling for your different belongings, and the Pacifica hybrid currently equals the Odyssey for best blend of cubbies, spaces and containers. Inside material quality is high, and the controls have a strong vibe to them. In general, the Pacifica hybrid looks and feels stunningly upscale inside.

Seating and Comfort

The Chrysler Pacifica hybrid 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 longer road trips.

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