Those of you who’ve been passengers or owned a sturdy stream of 2017 Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey throughout their lives should be excused for harboring the thought that minivans from Chrysler have more often than not existed in a state of unending rental-fleet averageness. True, Chrysler was the most significant player in the 80’s and hasn’t been active for a couple of several decades now. Now for 2017, there’s the Chrysler Pacifica that comes to make the record straight.

The new model comes as a replacement for the Town & Country minivan that Chrysler discontinued recently. Pacifica isn’t a new nameplate as it existed sometime during the last decade. However, there’s no relation here whatsoever apart from sharing a common name. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica interior is well-finished and offers many standard goodies for the money. The body structure is wrapped up with a lithe styling and is built on a new light-yet-strong panels.
