Poll: Honda Odyssey or Chrysler Pacifica?

Poll: Honda Odyssey or Chrysler Pacifica?

The Honda Odyssey is arguably the best minivan on the market today, but Chrysler’s brand-new 2017 Pacifica looks like it could dethrone the current champ.

The Odyssey features a 3.5-liter V6 engine that’s good for 248 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. It’s matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to its ACE body structure and plethora of airbags, it’s also a Top Safety pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Chrysler’s Pacifica is back from the dead. If you remember, this nameplate used to be used on a swanky crossover several years ago. Now it’s the replacement for their Town & Country. It boasts 40 minivan firsts and some 115 other innovations. Motivation is provided by a 287-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine.

Which of these family-friendly haulers do you like more? Here’s a direct comparison between them to help make things a little easier.

    can i punt and say Kia Sedona?
    That thing is DELIGIOUS [sic]

    i saw one at the car show and it leaves NOTHING to be desired.
    And i don’t know who chose their Napa Leather interior, but it just exudes luxury.

    Had to test drive one for my sister a few months back. The vehicle is a great setup but the handling and bouncing of the suspension was just odd. Overall I think it’s still good.

    If Chrysler was the last automaker on earth, I’d buy a horse.

    It is a simple formula for me. It is rare that Chrysler does NOT screw up its cars, and it is rare for Honda to screw up any (the Civic mess a few years back notwithstanding). The Odyssey wins for being less risky to own.

    Where’s the “none of the above” option? As in, not any minivan.

    Pacifica won. Good luck with reliability. I’ll wait for the 2017 Odyssey and go with that.
