There has long been a stigma surrounding the minivan. Some moms love them, and others would rather walk than drive one. Personally, I never really understood what the big deal was. You have a vehicle, made with families in mind; yet some people cringe at the thought of owning one.
Maybe its the word ‘minivan’ itself that has people slowly backing away, as they whisper “please no, I don’t want to be THAT mom” or maybe, they just weren’t looking at the right one. I for one would gladly drive the minivans that are currently available on the market.
Take the Chrysler Pacifica for instance. This minivan is everything that I could hope for in a vehicle that will be shuttling my family to all of the important things they have to do. Not to mention, road trips would be a breeze with this thing!
The Pacifica has a maximum cargo volume of 140 cu. ft., which is more than the average SUV. Plus it has a whole host of extras that come standard. It seats 7 and has heated front and rear seats. In addition, it has split bench and reclining third-row seats; talk about comfort!
This minivan has a 3.6L V6 24V VVT engine and a 9-Speed 948TE FWD Automatic transmission. It is equipped with hands-free sliding doors and a hands-free power liftgate. Plus, just look at some of its safety features:
- 360 Surround View Camera System
- Adaptive Cruise Control w/Stop & Go
- Advanced Brake Assist
- Automatic High Beam Headlamp Control
- Blind Spot & Cross Path Detection
- Full Speed Forward Collision Warning Plus
- Lane Departure Warning Plus
- Parallel & Perp Park Assist w/Stop
- ParkSense Front/Rear Park Assist w/Stop
- Rain Sensitive Windshield Wipers
Have little ones that you want to keep entertained on road trips, or while running errands? The Pacifica has an excellent entertainment system, with 2 LCD screens in the first row, and 2 LCD screens in the second row. It comes equipped with the Uconnect. You also have the ability to connect both your Apple phone or your Android phone to the system.
With the safety features, entertainment system, cargo space, and accessibility features, I can’t see why anyone would shy away from this vehicle. True, it carries the minivan title, but this is one minivan that can easily knock its competition out of the water.
Take a look at this one that is available at Brennan Dodge Chrysler Jeep.
