With SUVs, crossovers, and trucks like the 2016 Jeep® Cherokee or the 2016 RAM 1500 you might think that when it comes to larger family-oriented vehicles that are both practical and stylish, there isn’t much competition. In today’s world pretty much everything we value has more than one function or purpose. Our phones do more than simply make calls. Our computers allow us to work just as much as they allow to relax and watch a movie. So it’s no surprise that automobiles are the same. 

Vehicles like the 2016 Jeep Compass or Jeep Wrangler provide off-road entertainment just as much as on-road practicality. RAM trucks provide a stylish and spacious ride while being able to haul or tow whatever you need. Over the decades, vehicles like SUVs have taken the spotlight for go-to family vehicles because they serve more than a single function, they can provide ample space for passengers and gear all the while looking stylish and attractive. 

Now, there’s another contestant in this category, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. The new minivan has been out for a little while and it’s proving to be as amazing as we hoped here at Woody Folsom Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM. One of the driving factors in the popularity of SUVs and trucks over minivans in the last several years has been the fact that many SUVs and trucks performed the same function of a minivan while looking better doing it. But that may be changing with the new Chrysler Pacifica. 

The Chrysler Pacifica definitely challenges the stigma of suburban domesticity with a look that’s lean and attractive and has incredible tech options and practicality. The unibody design of the van looks similar to that of a 2016 Chrysler 200. It even sports the same styling to the front fascia. Inside touchscreens, Stow N’ Go seating, and even a built-in vacuum cleaner help to create a clean, peaceful atmosphere. And with the excellent design and materials contributing to exceptional exterior noise cancellation, the Chrysler Pacifica feels less like a minivan and more like a private den on wheels. 

There’s plenty to enjoy about the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. So head on down to our 1859 Golden Isles West Chrysler dealership today to see why the minivan may just be the new cool family vehicle.
