At last: the Pacifica minivan launch

by David Zatz on


Chrysler showed off the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivan today, calling it a minivan kids would be happy to have their parents pick them up in, calling out near double the torsional rigidity despite a 250 pound weight loss, and boasting of highway mileage of 28 mpg (sorry, no city mileage yet).

The company also showed off their programmed-in games and, for the first time, the “are we there yet?” app.

The hybrid drew up onto the stage under full electric power, completely silent.
