2017 Chrysler Pacifica Review – For Today’s Tech Family #Pacifica @Chrysler

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

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.

Speak Your Mind



  1. In my opinion, Chrysler is the top of the line in luxury!! I’m sure the payments are like a small house payment each month!
    This minivan sounds like it does everything, but drive itself! I love the color & the style! My grandkids would not want to leave the play land in there! I’m surprised there’s not a mini fridge! I love the pics & I have seen that commercial. The gear shift is a knob!! WOW!! I love this vehicle!! I’m showing my hubby this! I too, don’t like having a car payment! Thank you for this review!!

  2. I love this van! It’s super high tech and stylish!

  3. Bill Barker says:

    Outstanding vehicle. Traded my 2012 Honda Odyssey which we loved. Pacifica is our new love!

  4. Julie Wood says:

    I really like this car! It is so roomy and the color is so pretty. I could really take a nice relaxing road trip in this car!

  5. What a ton of nice features! The seats look so comfortable! What a great family vehicle!

  6. Emily Endrizzi says:

    My parents have the Town and Country and love it. This one is very similar but has a few changes. Great vehicle for family trips.
