Performance

Both the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and the 2017 Honda Odyssey run on V6 engines with power sent to the front wheels as standard. However, the Pacifica’s powertrain is larger, at 3.6L, whereas the Odyssey’s is 3.5L. The Chrysler minivan also has a nine-speed automatic transmission, but the Honda model has a six-speed automatic transmission, which means better control and a smoother drive behind the wheel of the Pacifica.

Finally, the Pacifica proves its performance splendor with a towing capacity of 1,633 kg. The Odyssey, on the other hand, can tow only 1,588 kg. All of this proves how strong the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is on the road, and these are advantages you’ll undoubtedly notice.

Warranty Coverage

If you’re springing for a brand-new minivan, then ensuring that your investment has extensive warranty coverage is critical. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, for example, has a corrosion perforation warranty that lasts for 60 months or 160,000 miles, as compared with the 2017 Honda Odyssey’s corrosion perforation warranty, which is good for the same amount of time but only 100,000 miles. What’s more, you’ll get roadside assistance for a longer period of time when you opt for the Pacifica, at 60 months or 100,000 miles. If anything should go wrong, then you’ll be glad you went with the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.
