The Incredible Invincible Minivan

The incredible, invincible Chrysler minivan. They’ve seen a lot and have been many places. One minivan in particular is owned by a former Delaware Governor and current U.S. Senator, Tom Carper.

 

Carper drives a Town & Country Chrysler minivan. His admiration for the Town & Country began when he was Governor and the State Patrol would drive him around the state in a Town & Country. When he became a U.S. Senator, Carper decided he didn’t want to give up riding in a Town & Country, so he bought one. That was in 2001 and he drives that same van today. In fact, he’s clocked 437,000 miles on his Chrysler minivan.

 

When the van turned over to 400,000 miles, Carper took it into the dealership that had kept it on the road through all those miles and a great celebration was held with Carper and the mechanics who cared for his minivan.

A Washington politician. One who knows the value in taking great care with something and making it last. That says something about the man. And the Senator.

 

A Chrysler minivan that has 437,000 miles on it. That says a lot about the genius of Chrysler engineering. They developed the #Chryslerminivan to be tough and to last.

 

Chrysler service technicians. At Chrysler dealerships across this nation they are making vehicles last. Carper says the longevity of his Chrysler minivan can be credited to changing the oil and servicing the vehicle regularly and getting it a good wash every other week. “If you take care of something, whether it’s a car or a house or even a family, it’s amazing how long they can have a good, long run,” says Senator Carper. He aims to drive his Chrysler minivan for 500,000 miles.

Out With the Box — In With The New Chrysler Pacifica

chrysler-pacifica

For those of us still in shock at the passing of the beloved Town & Country minivan, Chrysler is trying its best to make it an easy transition by presenting a two-million dollar makeover—the Chrysler Pacifica minivan.

 

The new Pacifica minivan has much of what we loved about the T&C, like the standard stow-and-go seats and lots of cargo space when the seats are packed away. The Pacifica adds lots of connectivity, power outlets and cubby storage. It now makes available foot-operated power sliding doors, heated second row seats and important new safety features.

 

The shape of the new Pacifica minivan is wider than its predecessor and its shape makes it more aerodynamic, improving fuel efficiency. The engine is a 3.6 liter Pentastar V-6 improved for greater power—287 horsepower, and fuel efficiency—31 miles per hour on the freeway while doing 75 mph. The engine works with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Merging and passing is a breeze with this engine. Even with its power, the Pacifica minivan is a nice ride, with plenty of damping to smooth over the bumps.

 

As mentioned, the stow-and-go seats are still with us, although not stowable with the touch of a button yet. There is a button to put the front seats as far forward and back as needed to stow the second row seats, however. The third row seats are power operated and fold into the floor with the touch of a button.

 

The cabin is comfy and quiet with noise levels at 63-decibels when cruising— unless you are banging out AC/DC on the 20 Harman Kardon speakers with a 760-watt amplifier available with the the UConnect Theater and Sound package. Yeow.

 

While there will always be a soft spot in our hearts for the T&C, the Pacifica more than makes up for our loss. Pine Belt Chevrolet invites you to test drive the new Pacifica minivan and see for yourself what a wonderful new addition to the Chrysler lineup this vehicle makes. Let one of our top-tier Pine Belt Chevrolet Sales and Finance team members put in you in a Chrysler Pacifica today.
