We now have a price for the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica – and it will command a hefty premium over its predecessor, the Chrysler Town & Country.
Three trim levels will be offered – the base Pacifica Touring L will start at $45,740, while the midrange Touring L Plus will fetch $48,740. Spring for the fully loaded Limited model and you’re looking at a bottom line of $54,740. Destination is another $1,745.
Former Chrysler Corp. chairman Lee Iacocca drove the company’s first minivan off the assembly line in Windsor, Ont., in 1983.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles unveiled the Pacifica at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January. It was designed to replace the Chrysler Town and Country and the Dodge Grand Caravan.
However, Timothy Kuniskis, FCA’s head of passenger vehicles, previously said the company will keep making the current — and cheaper — model of the Grand Caravan for as long as there is demand.
Production of the 2017 Pacifica is already underway at Chrysler’s factory in Windsor, with an on-sale date pegged for this spring. Production of the Pacifica hybrid will kick off later this year.
