This year’s model promises lots of impressive features and technologies including improved handling and steering, an upgraded suspension, Uconnect standard touchscreen, a slew of safety technologies, and an available 90th Edition Anniversary package.

Despite a large number of large sedans in the market, the Chrysler 300 has managed to outsmart most of them through constant performance and technology upgrades. And just like before, the new 300 combines luxury and attitude both of which contribute to its rarity.

It is also subtle and comes with a stronger emphasis on upscale refinements and appointments. But that’s not the news, to start off with, the 300 comes with an appealing rear wheel drive system and a choice of either a V6 or V8 power that provide any user with a combination of traditional sound and fury and a suitably tamed modern vehicle.

Regardless of the engine, every model comes with a supple and quiet ride quality. Interior wise, there are lots of soft-to-touch materials and upscale technologies which are both appealing and comfortable.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica – Release Date, Review and Specs

One of the biggest news comes with the reintroduction of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica model. The news is big not just because of the size of this minivan, but it also holds some weight as it has gone through a dramatic change. First of all, the name Town & Country has been dropped and we have been given one which in our opinion sounds a lot better. Secondly, the car has been updated with a new look, both inside and outside, new technology features and a new platform all-together.

We actually owe a lot to Chrysler as they practically invented the minivan segment and one of teh models that we are forever thankful is the 1990 Town & Country which made a lot of these things possible. The model has managed to revolutionize family travel and has brought us a car combines the spacing of a full size model and car-like drivability of a medium-size model. The minivans of today have started to suffer because of the popularity that the crossover SUVs have been getting in the recent stint so this Pacifica update comes as a refreshing new addition to the class.

This model manages to erase everything that the stigma of past minivans has established and hopes to update it for the contemporary period. Thus we get a minivan which bares a pretty attractive face and combines with an upscale interior and it even comes with a hybrid powertrain that means a eco-friendly output of the car.

So the question now remains will the newest Chrysler product be enough to replace the Town & Country name and will the introduction of the Pacifica be enough to bring the good name of the minivans for the future? It also needs to prove itself against the contemporary Honda, Nissan, Kia or Toyota vehicles which also have their own models that they are putting out. All of these questions will be answered after the release date but until then a review will suffice.

Exterior Redesign of 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

The exterior of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is its main selling point. Just by merely looking at it we see that we have something that is completely new and something that is going to change the face of the way people look at minivans. It is a new and revolutionary style that significantly departs from the old Town & Country one.

The front end of the car is more than obviously linked with the look of the Chrysler 200 sedan. This is mainly due to the swoopy chrome accents that the model has which combine with new projector beams. The body lines go rearward and give a very handsome crease. There is another body line which comes from the front wheel and actually intersects the door handles until it swoops downward at the rear part.

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica does enjoy its chrome. There are a lot of chrome accents all over the car, the front grille which has been updated, it goes at the perimeter of the side window, it also accents the lower section of the door and caps the design at the roofline. The rear end is completely monochromatic and there is only a thin piece of chrome on the lower bumper.

All in all, the Chrysler Pacifica 2017 has set a new bar for the segment and minivans everywhere. The car has gained a look which we did not expect to see but are happy that we have it.

Interior Changes

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica continues its update on the inside the same way as it did with the outside. It also managed to squeeze in some design details from the new and contemporary Chrysler models here as well. The seating arrangement has not changed as the car still offers a Chrysler’s innovative Stow ‘n Go fold-flat captain’s chairs for the second row of seats while the third row has a bench which seats three people. By folding the second and third row of seats you get an option of carrying 8×4 sheet of plywood making the Pacifica one of the more functional minivans on the market. There are various power controls and adjustments available for the model as it truly gives us a powerful offer.

The driver gets a high-end experience with the added features that Pacifica has. Perforated leather seats comes with heating and cooling function, they are also leather wrapped which combines with the steering wheel design and some chrome accents seen on the dash as well. We also get a radar cruise control system while there is also a FCA’s ubiquitous rotary gear knob as well.

The gauge cluster is similar to before and also comes with a slew of equipment available. There is the full-color TFT display that has redundant entertainment and navigation information as well as offering and digital fuel and temperature readouts. We get a 8.4-inch touchscreen houses Uconnect, the leading one in style and functionality when it comes to these matters. This is all in all the most fitted minivan up to date as it has the biggest combination of the available equipment available for the driver and passengers equally.

Engine Specs

The engine setup for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is pretty interesting as it comes with two different possibilities. One is a standard gasoline-powered engine while the other is a plug-in hybrid model. The gasoline engine is in fact the only part which has been completely carried over from the Town & Country model. It features a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine which does manage to get a slim power increase. The model now makes 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. It also adds a a two-step variable valve lift feature, a new cooled exhaust-gas recirculation system, better fuel efficiency and an automatic stop/start function. The old six-speed automatic gearshifter is replaced by a FCA’s current ToqueFlite nine-speed automatic. The hybrid version specs are going to be updated soon and we are expecting the official stats to come out.

2017 Chrysler 200 Release Date and News

With a bespoke interior, handsome looks, and improved handling and precision, the new 2017 Chrysler 200 has what it takes to get to the top. Some of the pros include an easy-to-use interface, a high-quality interior, an available AWD drive system, excellent safety test scores, and a strong V6 engine.

Install for you in the new model is a new 90th Anniversary package, a few exterior and interior tweaks, and a rearview camera for the Limited trim model. For starters, the 200 underwent a thorough redesign only last year and will definitely prove to be among the best in the mid-size sedan segment.

A lot of effort has been invested in the new 200. Long gone is the fuddy-duddy persona of the previous model, and its place is now an elegant, smooth and crisp look that allows the vehicle to stand out from the rest of its rival zombies.

Interior wise, Chrysler has invested a lot of soft-to-touch materials, and upscale technologies. For instance, inside you’ll find an easy-to-use 8.4” infotainment system which is undoubtedly one of our favorites.

Performance wise, Chrysler has equipped its base model with a four-cylinder engine that, according to us, is unfortunate. However, we like the 3.6L V6 engine that offers best of the bunch performance and fuel economy ratings.

Despite of the efforts, the 200 still lags behind on certain fronts including an overly firm ride, reduced interior space, less impressive exterior styling, and an underwhelming four-cylinder engine performance.
