TrueDelta Reviews the Available Features of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Available Features: Pros
YearComment
2017 The new Chrysler Pacifica can be purchased with just about anything you can get on a competing minivan, with the notable exceptions of all-wheel-drive (available only on the Toyota Sienna) and lounge-style second-row seats (available on the Sienna and on the Kia Sedona). Want a built-in vacuum like that introduced by Honda on the 2014 Odyssey? You can get one. Chrysler also offers features you can't get elsewhere, including hands-free power sliding doors and an entertainment system with embedded travel games and time-to-destination updates. Plus of course Chrysler's exclusive Stow 'n Go seats. Plus a full array of collision avoidance systems. You can't yet get a Sienna, Odyssey, or Sedona with automatic braking. If the Pacifica aces its crash tests, safety will become a "why to buy." see full Chrysler Pacifica review
