2017 Chrysler Pacifica Fuel Economy Announced

Fuel economy for gasoline-powered versions of Chrysler’s new minivan, the Pacifica, has been announced.

Power comes from a 3.6-liter V6 mated to a nine-speed automatic, helping the van achieve 28 mpg on the highway, 18 mpg in the city and 22 mpg combined. That means the Pacifica matches the class-leasing Honda Odyssey on the highway, but falls 1 mpg short of that van in the city.

That puts the Pacifica up by 2 mpg combined over its predecessor, the Town and Country.

When the plug-in hybrid version of the Pacifica is rated by the EPA, you can expect this van to become the most fuel efficient in the segment. Right now, Chrysler has promised 30 miles of all-electric driving and up to 80 MPGe.

A new generation of Honda Odyssey is expected to arrive later in 2016, likely with a nine-speed automatic of its own to try and keep pushing its fuel economy upwards.
