We understand your family’s safety is invaluable, and thus the Chrysler Pacifica is purpose-built with more than 100 standard and available safety and security features to ensure you feel well protected on the road. Here are five advanced features you may find particularly useful on your next drive.

1. The lane you choose: The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is designed to give you a hand on the road. The available LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist2 uses a camera-based vision sensor to detect and measure vehicle position within lane boundaries. If the system senses unintentional lane drifting, it will engage to provide a visual warning and will provide gentle corrective action to keep you on course, so you reach your destination safely.

2. Safety and security is straight ahead: Similar to LaneSense, the available Forward Collision Warning3 utilizes radar and video sensors to detect whether the Pacifica is approaching another vehicle or an obstacle in its path too rapidly and assists you in avoiding an accident by providing audible and visual warnings. If you still don’t respond, the system will provide autonomous braking. It’s like a backseat driver you don’t mind hearing from.

3. Safety and security you can visualize: Follow the gridlines with an available 360° Surround View Camera4 that provides a bird’s-eye view of the Chrysler Pacifica and its immediate surroundings, using four cameras positioned around the vehicle to create a fully stitched image. Dynamic gridlines help guide you, with the ability to select between front cross-path and rear cross-path views.

4. Enjoy peace of mind when you cruise: Even when it’s time to just cruise, safety and security remains of the utmost importance. Thankfully, the available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go5 is an intelligent cruise control system that utilizes radar and video sensors to identify vehicles in your forward path and maintain a set distance between the Pacifica and the vehicle in front of you.

5. Eyes in the back of your head: When you drive a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, you’re keeping more than just the people inside your vehicle safe and secure — it provides eyes on the things behind you as well. The available ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System with Stop6 helps detect obstacles near the rear of the vehicle to help you maneuver into tight spaces at parking speeds. A graphic display in the instrument cluster notifies you of the proximity of an object and the system will bring the vehicle to a full stop, if necessary, to help avoid a collision. When backing out of a parking space, the Rear Cross Path Detection system6 will alert you if the sensors detect vehicles or objects crossing your path.

With your family’s safety and security in full control, you’ll be able to enjoy the new innovations and technology that make the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica so much fun to drive. You and your passengers won’t be able to get enough of all that’s new. Take a look:
