Mom On Wheels With The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica
This month’s feature is the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L. After taking the Pacifica home for a few days, I have a whole new outlook on mini vans. The stigma around vans should cease to exist; it wasn’t slow and its sleek new style boosts the “cool factor.” As a mom always on the go, one of my favorite things about this vehicle is although it’s big and spacey, it is also light which enables a pretty big boost when accelerating.
The inside looks like a beautiful blue rocket ship at night (my son Chase’s choice of wording J ). He also enjoyed being able to stand up completely in the second row. This beauty has leather heated seats, an 8.4 inch touchscreen (another favorite feature.. especially when using the back-up camera! Crystal clear picture!), and seats up to 8 passengers.
The drive is smooth and precise. I didn’t notice any pull in any direction and I averaged 25MPG between city and highway driving. Although all the buttons and gadgets look like you have to be tech savvy to figure out all the functions, it is actually very user friendly and simple. As I plan to extend my family, a Chrysler Pacifica may be in my future!
