Stop by our dealership to check out the selection of Chrysler vehicles we have available and test drive the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. 

2017 Chrysler Pacifica 

Chrysler decided to revamp the Pacifica for 2017 and they didn't disappoint. The Pacifica is much sleeker and slimmer than previous versions, giving it a much more aerodynamic design. 

This new aerodynamic design complements features such as a panoramic sunroof, chrome accents on the tail pipes, 20-inch aluminum wheels, and sliding door tracks. The different trim levels offer various feature upgrades, such as a power liftgate and fog lights. Drivers have the option of LED headlights and lower lights. 

Drivers will be happy to know that the standard engine for the Pacifica is a 3.6L V6 that churns out 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. 

Seating and Cargo 

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica fits 7 passengers comfortably, including the driver. Other trim levels can fit up to eight passengers. It has sliding track doors that automatically slide back and forth for easy access.

Cargo space is plentiful with 197 cubic feet. Drivers can open the trunk with the rear-power liftgate for easy stowing. Chrysler has even created a name for its stowing technology, Stow 'N Go. Operators can configure the seats to accommodate guests or give the vehicle more storage space. 

Interior Technology 

The premier standpoint of the Chrysler Pacifica is the amazing interior technology. Minivan features include noise cancellation, an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen interface, Sirius XM radio, and a custom built Harmon Kardon audio system. Enjoy a dual screen monitor with Bluetooth capability, USB ports, and a Blu-ray player. 

2016 Nissan Quest 

The 2016 Nissan Quest is the latest offering from the car manufacturer for the new season and features new entertainment and safety technology. 


Like the Pacifica, the Quest offers chrome accents, but these are available for the interior, which also has a classic wood-grain finish. 

For entertainment, the Quest has a DVD system that's a great way to entertain a maximum of seven passengers. 

This minivan has a 3.5L V6 engine that provides 240 lb-ft of torque and 260 horsepower. 

Safety Technology 

Driver assist technology in the form of the Around View Monitor and Blind Spot Warning help to assist the operator when parking in a tight space or driving around obstructions. The new technology of the Quest creates an environment that drivers will appreciate. Look out for the anti-lock braking system, Electronic Brake Force distribution, and smart auto lights.
