AUBURN HILLS, Mich., April 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The new, highly anticipated 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is here.
Hundreds of Michigan-area dealers gathered at The Palace of Auburn Hills (Mich.) to drive away more than 200 of the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivans and bring them back to their dealerships in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. This is the largest ever "drive away" hosted by FCA US LLC.
"The Chrysler Pacifica is the new benchmark in minivan style, design, safety, efficiency, entertainment and functionality," said Timothy Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands, FCA - North America. "Now, customers can experience the Pacifica at their local dealership and see why we believe it's the perfect vehicle for the modern family."
The Pacifica is built on an all-new platform providing class-leading ride, handling, and noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). With nearly 40 new minivan firsts, the Pacifica sets the standard for the ultimate family vehicle. More than 100 standard and available safety and security features, including 360-degree Surround View camera, ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Hold and Forward Collision Warning-Plus, are available. The Pacifica is the most technologically equipped of its kind with available all-new Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment, 8.4-inch touchscreen display and premium audio systems. A full array of comfort and convenience technologies are available, including Stow 'n Vac integrated vacuum, tri-pane panoramic sunroof, handsfree sliding doors and liftgate and redesigned Stow 'n Go seating with Stow 'n Go Assist and Easy Tilt.
Chrysler created the first minivan more than 30 years ago. Since then, more than 14 million minivans have been sold and more than 6 million are currently on the road today.
The Windsor Assembly Plant began production of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica on February 29. Michigan-area dealers are among the first to receive the highly anticipated Pacifica. The Pacifica is available in five trim levels and starts at $28,595 U.S. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price, plus $995 destination.
