2017 Chrysler Pacifica vs 2017 Toyota Sienna near Noblesville, IN

The minivan-a staple vehicle of family life. Minivans have one of the most important jobs: transporting a whole family while keeping them entertained and safe. As such, minivans are some of the most competitive vehicles on the market, always striving to be the most comfortable, fun, and protective. Today, you'll read about two of the leading vehicles in the segment: the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and the 2017 Toyota Sienna. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is an all-new vehicle, boasting more than 100 safety and security features available, sleek athletic styling, and more than 40 firsts for the minivan class. The 2017 Toyota Sienna was last redesigned in 2010, making the current design 7 years old. It's a bit out of date, but many buyers still enjoy it.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Power & Handling

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has the coveted 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine beneath its hood. Tried-and-true and pumping out 287 horsepower, the Pentastar is a well-loved engine. It also generates 262 pound-feet of torque. The Pentastar features engine start-stop technology for extra fuel economy savings and is paired with an exclusive nine-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. Fuel economy reaches an impressive 28 miles per gallon on the highway.

2017 Toyota Sienna Power & Handling

The Toyota Sienna received an upgraded 3.5-liter V6 engine for 2017. This engine outputs 296 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. It's paired with a new eight-speed automatic transmission, which isn't as refined as the nine-speed found in the Pacifica. Fuel economy tops out at 27 mpg on the highway with front-wheel drive, although all-wheel drive models offer a significantly lower 24 mpg highway.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Features & Design

The Chrysler Pacifica comes in five simple trim levels: LX, Touring, Touring-L, Touring-L Plus, and Limited. The Pacifica offers many standard features; its base LX trim comes standard with LED daytime running lights, an electric parking brake, three-zone climate control, a rearview camera, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, push-button ignition, heated mirrors, remote locking and unlocking, convenient Stow 'n Go seats, Bluetooth, Uconnect Access, voice commands, a 5-inch touchscreen display, and a six-speaker sound system. That's an impressive and comprehensive suite of features for a base-level minivan.

2017 Toyota Sienna Features & Design

The Toyota Sienna is offered in five core trim levels-L, LE, SE, XLE, and Limited-and three Premium sub-trims for SE, XLE, and Limited. Standard features of the L trim include Bluetooth, three-zone climate control, automatic headlights, a windshield wiper de-icer, cruise control, a rearview camera, a four-speaker audio system, Siri Eyes Free (a feature only accessible for iPhone users), and a 6.1-inch touchscreen.

Conclusions

While the 2017 Toyota Sienna is a great option for a minivan, we think that the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is a better option. The Sienna isn't a class-leader like the Pacifica and its old age really hurts its success. The Pacifica has a far more high-quality interior, easier storage solutions, and a better rear entertainment system when properly equipped. With a brand-new redesign, the Chrysler Pacifica stands out in a way that the Toyota Sienna doesn't.
