I received this car for one week to review in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.
So to me a car is a car and they are all pretty much the same. Sure there are features that stand out amongst others but the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has really blown me away. It is a car for today’s tech family with “unparalleled levels of functionality, versatility, technology and safety features.” I honestly was so impressed with it, I have decided it is going to be my next car hopefully sooner than later and that is a very hard thing for me to say as I have been loving no car payments.
You may have seen the “Dad Brand” advertising commercials staring actor/comedian/writer/producer Jim Gaffigan. As a real=life dad of five, the commercials show him using the Chrysler Pacifica as a dad in pretty silly skits. The commercials show of the car’s features and how to establish cool ‘dad cred.’
The Chrysler brand actually invented the minivan 33 years ago as a new category in the automotive industry to address the needs of growing families. There are actually 37 minivan firsts and a total of 115 innovations packed in the Chrysler Pacifica.
Some of the features of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica we loved:
So many USB ports and I mean tons. They are everywhere! All over the front, middle and back rows!
Roomy – my family of five fit nicely in it. You can seat up to seven.
A vacuum – yes in the back row there is a Stow ‘n Vac powered by RIDGID that is actually pretty powerful and reaches around the car. You can even use the included vaccuum for pet hair.
Hands-Free Power Sliding Doors and Liftgate – this is must for busy families who always have their hands full!
Available Uconnect Theater – this is a subscription service but it gives families personalized entertainment, access to emergency services, wi-fi hotspot and more
Entertainment – So much entertainment packed in!
Games – yes the touchscreen has games for the passengers to play either separately or against each other! My boys were amazed by this.
Tri-pane panoramic sunroof – the sunroof pretty much covers the whole ceiling and gives an amazing view of stars at night!
Ventilated premium leather-trimmed seats – this makes the seats airy and not hot and stiff.
8.4 inch touchscreen and navigation
Lots of viewing options for your dashboard
Keyless entry and push button start
Outlets – yes it has some of those!
Sleek body design. To me this car does not look like a minivan but rather more like an SUV. I love the body style and as a mom who is torn between a minivan and SUV, I love that I can get both out of this.
Cameras everywhere – The cameras all over give you a great view of surroundings so you don’t miss anything around you.
Coolest gear shift ever! I admit it was strange at first but then I got used to it and miss it!
Stow n’ Go Seating and Storage System – the seats can be folded up and down to make room for whatever your families needs are. Then the storage is literally everywhere. I pretty much live in my car trekking my kids all over and storage is a must for me.
