For decades, families have purchased minivans because they had to, not because they wanted to. But what if, out of the pit of despair that is the minivan segment, a knight in shining armor emerged so cool and so convenient, that people actually wanted to buy it?
2017 Chrysler Pacifica – Minivan Superstar
If you’re somewhat familiar with with the Pacifica nameplate, then you know that it’s synonymous of family and comfort, but one thing it’s not associated with, is the term—minivan. After generations of Grand Caravan and Town & Country minivans, Chrysler decided to ditch the old names, and revitalize the Pacifica with a new, sleek, and family-hauling body. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica was born.
It’s hard to hide just how much we all enjoyed the Pacifica, since it never stopped surprising us with many features that simply made life easier. Whether it was the easy-to-open rear doors, the Stow ‘n Go storage system, or the easy-to-use Uconnect 8.4 infotainment system, Chrysler certainly did their homework before bringing this vehicle to market.
