2017 Chrysler Pacifica Scores Near Top on Minivan Mpg

2017-pacifica-performance-stability

The upcoming Chrysler Pacifica is one of the strongest contenders when it comes to fuel economy in its class. The Chrysler Pacifica of 2017 provides a fuel mileage of about 28 mpg on highways and is a fuel-efficient alternative to gasoline thirsty SUVs and large crossovers. Within the city, the Pacifica returns a respectable 18 mpg with a combined mileage overall of approximately 22 MPG.

The figures are competitive when measured against the Town & Country’s (2016 model) mileage of 25 mpg on a highway, 20 mpg when driven on both city roads and highways and 17 mpg when driven inside the city. The mileage delivered by this all-new minivan makes it one of the most highly efficient vehicles in the class to which it belongs.

While the fuel economy numbers are certainly impressive for the standard 3.6L V6 engine that provides a horsepower of 287 with a smooth 9-speeed automatic transmission; those looking for excellent fuel economy have something more to look forward to. Later this year, Chrysler will release a plug-in hybrid version of the Pacifica. While there is yet to be definitive numbers, Chrysler has stated that the innovative vehicle could achieve up to 80 MPGe. Additionally, Chrysler would implement the usage of a stop-start feature that can increase the fuel economy numbers in the real-world as well.

When compared to top competitors like the Toyota Sienna and Kia Sedona, the Chrysler Pacifica meets or exceeds their fuel economy numbers, providing a brand new approach to minivan driving that is modern, stylish, luxurious and best of all, fuel efficient.

If you want to test drive a Chrysler Pacifica, or get a great deal on the outgoing but popular Chrysler Town and Country, you can visit Pine Belt to do so.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica – Safety features

2017-pacifica-safety-rear-back-up-camera

The all new Chrysler Pacifica for 2017 is powered by a series of safety features including airbags in the side of the front seats, an antilock braking system, a rearview camera, airbags for the knees of the front passengers and driver, airbags for side curtain and stability and traction control.

Warning while the minivan departs from a lane

The Pacifica not only helps you in keeping safe, as well as secure but it is also helpful in keeping your minivan on track using its proprietary Lane keep Assist and LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning systems. It is equipped with a vision sensor that is camera-based for detecting and measuring the position of your vehicle within the boundaries of a lane. When a driver drifts into a lane unintentionally, the system starts functioning by giving the driver a visual warning.

Forward Collision Warning Plus

Who would not love to have an additional pair of eyes? The new Forward Collision Warning System, with its Active Braking System is perhaps one of the best things that could have happened to the 2017 Pacifica. The system makes use of video and radar sensors for detecting whether your Pacifica faces a sudden and rapid obstacle or another vehicle. It will then provide you with assistance to avoid an accident as it offers visual and audible warnings. In the event that it becomes necessary, the Pacifica can provide autonomous braking.

Rear back camera

The 2017 Pacifica is equipped with a rear back up camera (ParkView®) that features Cross Path Detection in the rear. The camera provides a much wider view and comes with active grid lines for the area right behind the driver so that it is simpler and safer to park.

If you want to test drive a Chrysler Pacifica, you can visit Pine Belt to do so.
