Check out some of the Pacifica’s 37 unique features in action

When the all-new Chrysler Pacifica was introduced earlier this year, there was a big presentation at the North American International Auto Show, press releases and lots of discussion about the new features and minivan firsts offered in the new vehicle.

From the roof down to the wheels and throughout the interior of the vehicle, new features abound in the Pacifica, making the minivan safer, more user-friendly and technologically advanced.

Hello from the Motor City! I’m Edward Cardenas and I’m multimedia editor for FCA US. As a lifelong Detroiter, I have been surrounded by the automotive industry. I’ve had members of my immediate and extended family work in the industry. I’ve covered it as a journalist and advocated for it as a communications professional. I have also experienced the thrills of the industry while riding in a race car at nearly 200 miles per hour. Having this breadth of experience, I look forward to drawing upon my experiences to bring a wide range of stories, photos and videos about Chrysler, FIAT and Alfa Romeo to FCA Digital Media. When I’m not covering my brands, I’m spending time with my wife and two boys.
