The Chrysler Pacifica is being reintroduced as a nameplate for the 2017 model year replacing the Town & Country badge on minivans. It is a minivan with 3 seating rows and a V6 and hybrid variants. It currently competes with other larger US market minivans like the Honda Odyssey, Kia Sedona, Nissan Quest, Toyota Sienna. The Pacifica nameplate was used before for a mid-size CUV that sold from 2004-2008. Before that, the name was used as a trim level and also as a appearance package on some Chrysler and Dodge Vehicles. History The Pacifica from the last decade, was created to go against the likes of the Lexus RX but with more space to sit up to six and delivering a more useful and versatile interior than the majority of models that you could compare it to. It consolidated a respectful reputation for interior space and safety overall. It probably had the nicest interior appointments of any other Chrysler during the past decade. It also never failed to satisfy in refinement or fuel economy. Some critics say that it was priced too high while some feel this vehicle was subject to poor management of its marketing campaign. The first models of the Pacifica had a 200hp 3.8 Liter V6 that produced 353 hp. In 2007, it was substituted for a 4.0 liter V6. In any case, both engines were coupled to a –Speed automatic and fuel economy ratings were just 14/22 mpg with AWD and the bigger engine. FWD and AWD versions were offered, and for the most part the Pacifica had a great combination of all-weather traction, responsive handling, and a comfortable ride. Top trims of the later model years included a rearview camera and entertainment system, Bluetooth connectivity and Infinity Premium sound.
