2017 Chrysler Pacifica vs. 2016 Honda Odyssey
There are all kinds of vehicles available today, the hard part is figuring out which one will best suit your needs. If you’re looking for a spacious, yet stable and high-tech family vehicle, then the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is the minivan you’ve been searching for. To prove it, we’ve compared the Pacifica side by side with a similar vehicle: the 2016 Honda Odyssey.
When it comes to performance, there’s no topping the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica’s power. Its 3.6L V6 engine is able to deliver intense power of up to 287 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque, making it more versatile and useful for everyday driving as well as other tasks. On the other hand, the 2016 Honda Odyssey can only give Indian Head drivers power up to 248 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque, making it less powerful and not as well equipped to do other tasks, like towing.
The Pacifica can easily tow up to 1,633 kilograms at a time, while the Odyssey’s lesser engine can only tow up to 1,587 kiloggrams. The standard engine of both vehicles provide Melville drivers with pretty similar fuel economy of 8.4 L/100km on the highway. However, the Pacifica also offers a 3.6L Pentastar VVT V6 Hybrid engine that allows drivers to go even further with 260 net horsepower and the ability to drive up to 48 kilometers solely on electric power as well as getting combined fuel economy as low as 2.9L /100km.
In the features department, the Pacifica and the Odyssey have some overlap in standard and available features, however the Pacifica has a few more advanced and innovative features that the Odyssey lacks. Some of these features include third row Stow n’ Go fold in floor seats with in-fold storage and Easy Tilt and 12-way power front seats with four-way lumbar support.
Which One is Better?
When it comes down to which vehicle wins this particular race, the choice is clear. After weighing the pros and cons of each vehicle, it’s easy to say that the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica provides drivers with more bang for their buck – with more technology, features, and even a hybrid engine option. While the 2016 Honda Odyssey puts up a strong fight, it’s no match for the Pacifica.
