Meet Izzy, Miles and Harper – the children who have been helping parents and minivan enthusiasts get hip to the new, advanced features of the All- New 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. Izzy is a super smart and witty 10-year-old from California who is a dynamic dancer and enjoys playing video games with her fellow PacifiKids. Her favorite feature of the Chrysler Pacifica is the Stow ‘ n Go® area, so she can pack up all of her toys.

His favorite feature is the available Stow ‘ n Vac™ on the All-New 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.

For a glimpse at the next generation of family transportation, Chrysler has unveiled the Chrysler Portal concept vehicle at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017. The Chrysler Portal was designed by millennials for millennials, with a forward-thinking interpretation of the “fifth generation” of family transportation. Electric Range and Fast Recharge The electric-powered Chrysler Portal concept was designed for modern efficiency, with an estimated range of over 250 miles on a full charge. For convenience, a DC Fast Charge (350 kW) can recharge the battery pack with 150 miles of range in less than 20 minutes. Modern Adaptable Interior Designed from the inside out, the interior of the Chrysler Portal concept features a “third space” — an open and serene atmosphere that bridges work and home, and is designed to grow with a young family by maximizing interior space with flexible seating and cargo configurations. Premium seating is standard for all occupants with thin-design seats that fold flat, fold up and slide on a track system for ultimate flexibility.This enables the seats to move the full length of the vehicle and, if needed, to be removed Read More

Food, dirt, pet hair – you name it, it will likely find its way into the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivan. Before implementing the Stow ’n Vac (powered by RIDGID®) in the Pacifica, engineers gathered minivan and SUV owners from various demographics to pinpoint the “dirtiest” spot in their vehicles. Gagan Mann, senior manager of electromechanical engineering, and her team gathered 30 owners of FCA US minivans, competitive minivans and SUVs. From the study, Mann concluded the “dirtiest” and “most cleaned” area of these utility vehicles was the second row on the driver’s side – with the second row on the passenger’s side the second dirtiest. Hence, Mann and her team decided to place the Stow ’n Vac on the left C-pillar of the 2017 Pacifica, just behind the second-row seat. “It shouldn’t be a process to clean,” Mann said. “You don’t have to go in the trunk to access the Stow ‘n Vac. It’s so easy, it’s like opening and closing the doors – you don’t think about it. Pull it out, quickly clean up and done.” To test the power of the Stow ’n Vac, Mann and her team Read More

By: Edward Cardenas When the all-new Chrysler Pacifica was introduced earlier this year, there was a big presentation at the North American International Auto Show, press releases and lots of discussion about the new features and minivan firsts offered in the new vehicle. From the roof down to the wheels and throughout the interior of the vehicle, new features abound in the Pacifica, helping to make the minivan more safe and secure, user-friendly and more technologically advanced than before. But instead of rehashing the items in a long list, we recruited one of the engineers who worked to bring the vision for this new minivan from concept to reality to demonstrate some of these features in a video: In case you missed some of the standard and available innovations mentioned by Jessica LaFond, Lead Engineer – Chrysler Pacifica, here’s a list of the Pacifica features she demonstrated: 1. Active grille shutters 2. Tri-pane panoramic sunroof 3. Stow ’n Go® seating for the second and third rows 4. ParkSense® Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist1 5. Optional 20-inch wheels and tires 6.

By: Lindsay of Suburban Turmoil Chrysler is very excited about the all-new Pacifica and provided me with information about the vehicle; I’d like to share with you how the Pacifica may fit in with your lifestyle. “I just don’t know how you get out and do so much with your family,” a friend remarked to me yesterday. “I see what you’re up to on your blog and think I’d like to do those kinds of things, too, but it seems so hard to find momentum to actually do it.” I told my friend the truth: the reason I plan so many family activities, day trips, and vacations is that they are my lifeline. Although I’m a homebody at heart, it has become abundantly clear to me that my family’s best moments are when we’re away from the comforts (and electronic devices) of home and out exploring together, whether we’re on our way to a beach resort or a dilapidated cabin in the woods or a country market or a barbecue restaurant in a town with a population of 300. Consequently, we’re in the car together a lot; to keep the kids Read More
By: Allison of All For the Boys Chrysler is very excited about the all-new Pacifica and provided me with information about the vehicle; I want to share with you how the Pacifica may fit in with your lifestyle. I see a lot of articles and posts about how to keep kids busy in the car. If you spend a lot of time in the car or have been on a long road trip you know why! I actually have always loved car time with my kids and I love it even more so now that they are entering their teen years. We’re always particular about our cars because we spend SO much time in them. The All-New 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has all kinds of awesome features that make connecting with kids and teens that much easier. I’m SO ready for a test drive. Car time is my favorite time for several reasons, but mostly because we are in the same place, at the same time, all together. If you are a mom of older kids/teens you know how special that is! Everyone has busy lives so being in the same place Read More
By: Jamie of Hands on As We Grow Chrysler is very excited about the all-new Pacifica and provided me with information about the vehicle; I want to share with you how the Pacifica may fit in with your lifestyle.Growing up, my family would go on two-week vacations every summer. We always drove (I never flew in an airplane until my honeymoon to Hawaii). And it seemed we were always on the road, staying at a campground one night and then driving 6 to 8 hours the next day to our next destination. I remember vividly setting up “my” spot in our vehicle before heading out on vacation. I’m super excited about our sponsor, the All-New 2017 Chrysler Pacifica! I would have had a heyday with setting up “my” spot. With STOW ‘N GO® Seating and Storage system and all the different ways to configure the seats, it would have been so awesome! Playing games in the car became a thing we did. I remember playing games such as GHOST and I Spy all the time.But a favorite game that the whole family did together was play road trip bingo. We had these trays with a grid inside them that Read More
