Chrysler's clever Pacifica charges to the head of the carpool lane with the nicest interior and smart, family-minded technology.
Chrysler is an automaker that has undergone quite a few reinventions, acquisitions, expansions and contractions over its nearly century-long existence. Today, it is the American luxury arm of the global Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) company with a lineup that consists of the 300 and 200 sedans and the Town & Country minivan.
The Chrysler 300 gives you a uniquely stylish look, combined with a comfortable cabin and driving demeanor, but it lags behind the competition in fuel economy and interior fit and finish.
The 2014 Chrysler 300S gets the basics right with a great powertrain and premium cabin amenities, but its tech and driver aid features are in need of an update. Fortunately, there's one just around the corner.
Chrysler showed off a refreshed 300 sedan model at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, complete with its latest UConnect head unit, powering apps such as Yelp with a native data connection.
The 2015 Chrysler 200C is a dramatic improvement over the previous model year, boasting much better tech and amenities than similarly priced premium competition.
Although a bit archaic in its power-train hardware, the 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 features modern cabin electronics and full-size sedan comfort.
Chrysler's Pacifica may not throw out the minivan rulebook, but it adds a few chapters to the story and throws on a slick new cover, too.
As other automakers are pumping time, money and resources into various tech efforts, Fiat Chrysler is looking far and wide for a partner to shack up with.
It's still a good looking car, and it's plenty comfortable on long hauls, but the 300 lags behind the competition in several different ways.
This recall extends to vehicles badged as Jeep, Ram and Chrysler.
