2017 Chrysler Pacifica Safety Features
Many people might remember the Pacifica SUV from several years back. This isn’t a reintroduction; rather, it’s a hybrid replacement for the popular Town & Country minivan, and packs a ton of cool features, as well as the best available safety options throughout its five trim levels.
The basic level of Pacifica comes with all the expected safety features, including traction and stability control, anti-lock disc brakes, and airbags at the front driver and passenger knees, side curtain, and front seat side areas. It also comes with periodic brake rotor drying to maintain performance in rainy conditions.
In addition, the Pacifica’s basic package includes access to the subscription-based Uconnect® Access service, which gives you emergency roadside assistance, vehicle location, and even remote door lock and unlock. This safety package is a great addition at a base trim level. It’s possible to upgrade this access to an 8.4-inch touchscreen, which makes it exceptionally easy to use.
Additional safety features can be added at higher levels. The LX and Touring trims, for example, allow you to add rear parking sensors, Blind Spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert features in the SafetyTec Group package. Higher levels include these features as standard, and rear parking sensors even feature low-speed automatic braking to stop you from hitting objects while backing up.
The Advanced SafetyTec package is available for the Touring-L Plus and the Limited trim levels. This gives you automatic wipers and high beam control, Lane Departure Warning and intervention functionality, and Forward Collision Warning and Crash Mitigation System, including Automatic Braking. It also gives you Adaptive Cruise Control, a 360-degree top-down camera monitoring system, and parallel and perpendicular automated parking.
Of course, handling and steering is essential to keeping you safe on the roads, and the 2017 Pacifica delivers in this area as well. This smooth and quiet riding vehicle delivers solid grip, confident handling, and agile steering to provide exceptional control on the road and around bends.
When you’re driving a minivan, it’s likely for family business, and you want to make sure your children are safe. The brand new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica delivers excellent safety features among its other luxurious options. If you live in Sodus, Ontario, or Wayne County, stop into Peake CJDRF and ask for more information about the options available in this great new vehicle.
