CHRYSLER PACIFICA

THE PACIFICA OFFERS A SMOOTH RIDE AND DECENT HANDLING, TOO

Granted, it may not be one of those head-turning models that makes your heart race, but if you’re taking the whole family on vacation with you, the Chrysler Pacifica is the way to go. 

 

For starters, few other models will seat everyone comfortably. Sure, invite Grandma and Grandpa along—the Pacifica has room for up to seven passengers, with all their luggage.

 

The Pacifica offers a smooth ride and decent handling, too. It’s no sports car, but you won’t feel as if you were driving a scaled-down Greyhound bus like the minivans of old. As important as the driving experience are the amenities. Good-to-have extras include keyless entry, dual-zone climate control and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration.

 

Add a slew of standard safety features and top scores in government crash tests, and the Pacifica becomes the minivan you never knew you wanted to drive—until now.
