Can 2017 Pacifica Minivan Re-Energize Chrysler?

Brent Snavely

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles wants to dramatically redefine the minivan category with its new Chrysler Pacifica and a hybrid version — two models with enough fresh styling and performance to potentially re-energize a segment that has lost more than half its sales the past 15 years.

FCA is dropping the Town & Country name and plans to reveal its new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica early today  at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The automaker surprised the industry by dropping Town & Country and reviving the Pacifica name. The automaker eventually plans to phase out the Dodge Grand Caravan, too.
