Pacifica Minivan lost 250  pounds [113kg].
- Detroit Free Press C Sunday, March 20, 2016
At 4,315 pounds [1876kg], the new Pacifica is 250
pounds [113kg] lighter than the outgoing Chrysler Town &

Country and is the lightest minivan on the road

? 5-piece, multi material welded blank
? Eliminated insert and assembly operations
? Weight = 

Offensive Enablers
? Early engagement of body rail and chassis structure initiate
lateral movement away from barrier
? Integrated bumper and UHSS Load beam system

Defensive Enablers
? AHSS/UHSS-Reinforced Safety Cage
? TWB Press Hardened door ring
? Strategic flange conditions for welds in shear and compression loading

AHSS/UHSS Rear Rail Assembly
? Optimized rear rail topology and suspension design for improved load path continuity and suspension clearance
? Optimized lateral bending mode of DP590 Rear Rail for efficient energy absorption

UHSS Safety Cage
? Press Hardened, integral A-Plr and B-Plr reinforcements
? Press hardened roof bow and front header for load transfer
? Load achieved: >4.5 x GVW

Improved Body Bending Rigidity
? Continuous rail loadpaths
? Minimized upperbody breathing
? Strategic placement of modal nodes

Improved Body Bending Rigidity
? Reduced excitation of body structure to P/T, Chassis vibration inputs
? Improved ride and shake performance
? Advanced topology-based stiffness optimization techniques targeted strategic areas for modeshape improvement

Multi- - ring  body structure concept
? Continuous, multi-plane ring structure
? Bolt- - in FEM- - load beam braces
? Solid-mounted cradle for improved isolation, front end stiffness and vehicle dynamics

Its certainly the best minivan Ive driven, but it might be
better than a number of popular crossovers too.

The suite of safety features seamlessly picked up where my mirrors
and windows left off, and the big V6 moved the 4,350- - pound van well
enough to not leave me wanting for anything when accelerating for lane
changes and stop lights. James Derek  Sapienza C C Autos Cheat Sheet
Riding on an all- - new platform with 22 percent more high- -
strength steel and close to 130 meters of structural
adhesives thus boasting a 68 percent increase in
stiffness the Pacifica proved as solid as it did quiet. No
squeaks or rattles and minimal wind and road noise. C C

Slapping aggressive price tags on a minivan is one thing. Backing it
up with best- -n in- - class performance and functionality is another. With
Pacifica, Chrysler has successfully managed to do both. And it has
sculpted what is for all intents and purposes a box into a sleek, sexy
benchmark of style.  Ron Kino - - Motortrend
No, minivans aren't cool, but the 2017 Chrysler
Pacifica is  close C C Antuan Goodwin C C Road Show by
It also looks like a spaceship mated with a Ninja Turtle when
viewed from straight on. This kind of funky, kind of cool look
adds to the Pacifica's curb appeal, I think. .
