2017 Chrysler Pacifica Isn’t What It Seems

By  | 

Back when Chrysler unveiled the Pacifica, many speculated that the vehicle is going to revolutionize the minivan segment. Today, the Pacifica is already available on the show rooms and it has apparently failed to live up to our expectations.

Sure, the Pacifica is equipped with a nice powertrain but it failed to live up to the figures that are written on the brochures. The 3.6L V6 engine are capable of producing 287hp but the outcome is still sluggish, even when compared to other heavy vehicles with the same pony count.

Then, there is the fact that the EPA ratings are overrated. The Pacifica is said to be able to achieve up to 28mpg highway but we were never able to achieve it despite spending a whole day trying to. What gives?

It seems that Chrysler is overselling the Pacifica to the consumers. The overall experience on the Pacifica is great but we would prefer it if the figures on the road is more consistent with what is quoted on the brochures.
