The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica builds on a legacy of innovation in the minivan segment.
More than 30 years ago, FCA US LLC shook the automotive world with the introduction of the minivan, and over the course of the next five minivan generations introduced 78 innovations. In the newest generation of minivan, the Pacifica adds 37 minivan firsts.
Some of these innovations are apparent, such as the dual-pane sunroof with third-row fixed glass, second-row Stow ‘n Go seats with Easy Tilt, 10-inch touchscreens in the second row and optional 20-inch wheels and tires.
Other features are not as easy to see, but still offer Pacifica owners unique features, such as in-vehicle wireless device connectivity, Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist system and nine-speed transmission.
“The all-new Chrysler Pacifica was thoughtfully designed and engineered to provide unsurpassed levels of comfort, convenience, technology and functionality, making it the perfect combination for modern families,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands, FCA – North America.
In addition to these innovations, the Pacifica also features patented inventions created by employees and designed for the all-new minivan.
Some of the patents granted to the company include:
- A component in the vehicle fuel system
- Easy Tilt second row seats and Stow ‘n Go system
- Sliding doors
