October 24, 2016 , Windsor, Ontario - Already Canada’s minivan sales leader, FCA Canada has expanded the lineup for its segment-leading 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.
The new LX and Touring trims join the previously available Touring-L, Touring-L Plus and Limited, bringing the total number of Pacifica models to five. All 2017 Chrysler Pacificas are made in Canada at the award-winning Windsor Assembly Plant (WAP). Last year, WAP, which also makes the Dodge Grand Caravan, built 70 per cent of the full-size minivans sold in Canada.
“As part of our launch rollout, which began in February 2016, we’re now able to expand Pacifica’s offerings and bring even more value to Canadian shoppers,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, FCA Canada. “Our minivans have been best sellers since FCA created the segment more than 30 years ago, and with the unmatched new features and technology Pacifica provides, these additional models are another win for Canadian families.”
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica LX has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $37,995.
Standard features on LX include the award-winning 3.6-litre Pentastar VVT V-6 engine paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission, active noise cancellation, active grille shutters, capless fuel fill, deep-tint sunscreen glass, Keyless Enter ’n Go, second- and third-row Stow ’n Go fold-in-floor seating, air conditioning with tri-zone manual temperature control, cruise control and the Uconnect 5.0 multimedia centre with a 5-inch touchscreen and six speakers.
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Touring has an MSRP of $39,995. Enhancements versus the LX model include 17-inch alloy wheels, dual power-sliding doors, automatic headlamps, the Stow 'n Place roof rack system, interior door handle LED lamps, a power 12-way driver's seat including 4-way power lumbar adjust, a power liftgate, proximity entry for all doors, SiriusXM Satellite Radio with a one-year subscription and a Stow 'n Go Assist driver's seat.
