ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Back in the '80s, Chrysler invented the minivan -- and now, they're reinventing it. The outgoing Town & Country is being replaced by a much more upscale family-hauler with new features and different dimensions: the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.

The 2017 Pacifica has a totally new look, inside and out. With seating for up to eight, it's packed with lots of family-friendly features.

The Pacifica is available in five trim levels -- LX, Touring, Touring L, Touring L-Plus and Limited. Our test car was a Limited.

Under the hood, a standard 3.6-liter V6 is paired to a 9-speed automatic transmission to deliver a remarkable 28 miles per gallon on the highway. And if that kind of fuel economy doesn't wow you, there's a hybrid version of the Pacifica on the way.

With its powerful V6 and lighter body, the Pacifica has strong acceleration, so you'll feel confident merging into traffic or changing lanes. Handling is solid as well. There's no body sway, even at high speeds or in windy conditions. On top of that, the Pacifica is very quiet.

There's a lot to like about the interior, too. It's upscale and sporty, with high-end leather seats. There's also quite a bit of storage for all the stuff that families require in order to function. We love the Stow 'n Go seats in the second and third rows, as well as the cavernous cargo space in the back once those seats have been stored.

Other convenience options include a hands-free tailgate and side door, as well as an on-board rigid vacuum cleaner to easily clean up all those snacks that don't seem to make it into the kids' mouths.

We really like the Pacifica's dual sliding doors, which open by way of key fob, center roof controls or an easy-to-use door button, so kids can easily get in and out on their own.

The second- and third-row seats are notably well-designed. The second row tilts forward with the lift of a lever, even with a bulky child seat on board, allowing easy access to the third row.

On the tech side, Chrysler hit a home run. It's easy to keep the kids entertained with the Uconnect Theater, which features dual 10.1-inch touchscreens, interactive games like ticktacktoe, a Blu-ray player and HDMI and USB inputs.

As for safety, the 360-degree camera with parking assist is a big help, whether you're maneuvering in your own driveway or in a busy parking lot. And advanced safety features like adaptive cruise control and forward-collision warning with brake assist give you a bit more peace of mind.

With its sporty styling, upscale interior and sought-after tech, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is a modern minivan for the modern family.
