Minivan Marvel: New Chrysler Pacifica & PacifiKids Field Trip

This blog post is sponsored by FCA. All opinions are my own.


My kids and I spend a decent amount of time driving together in my minivan. We’re driving to and from school, running errands, going to sports practices and games, and I’m often volunteering to drive and chaperone for school field trips. I love the extra space and design of the minivan, and I’ve been a fan since my parent’s purchased their first minivan, a Plymouth Voyager, back in the 80’s.

Minivans are marvelous but don’t believe the lie that they’re all created equally! I was intrigued to hear that Chrysler had designed the ultimate transportation for the modern family with their new Pacifica.

KEEP READING TO THE END FOR AN AMAZING CONTEST — you could win a dream field trip or a brand new Chrysler Pacifica!

My kids and I had the chance to visit Chrysler Fair Oaks to check out the new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. Both my kids and I were impressed by the cool, new features that the vehicle had and we loved exploring it together.


My kids were enamored with the uConnect Theater System. This included two 10″ touchscreens that allowed my kids to play games like Tick-Tack-Toe and follow along with the progress of our journey with the “Are We There Yet” trip tracker app. The uConnect also enables wireless streaming, HDMI, Bluetooth, USB, and Blu-Ray. Definitely a plus for kids who want to stay connected and for parents who want to keep their children entertained on the road.

My children were also pretty impressed by the 360 Surround View Camera. We had an eagle eye view around the car!

My own favorite features were ones that help a busy mom who has her hands full. That’s why I’m head-over heels for the Hands Free Sliding Doors and Handsfree ‘Just Swipe Your Foot’ Lift Gate features. I’m also amazed by the intuitive and high-tech alerts and safety features such as Blind Spot Warning with Rear Cross Path Detection; Parallel, Perpendicular & Rear Park Assist; Forward Collision Warning with Brake Assist; Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist. I didn’t know a car could do that! That seriously trumps my current minivan! I also love that the new Chrysler Pacifica is the quietest vehicle in its class. With all the noise on the road, it’s nice to have a quiet car!

Other versatile features of the Chrysler Pacifica make it perfect for families on the go:

  • Stow n’ Go Seating
  • Stow ‘n’ Vac – integrated vacuum reaches every corner of the van (I totally want this!)
  • Lift Gate
  • 8 Passenger Seating
  • Hybrid & MPG Efficiency — the world’s first and only Hybrid Minivan with 80 MPG
  • Stow Assist
  • Tri-Pane Panoramic Sunroof
  • Easy Tilt Seats for 3rd Row Access
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop
  • 20″ Wheels
  • Rotary Style E-Shift


My kids loved checking out the all new Chrysler Pacifica. And my kids aren’t the only ones who love this vehicle: the adorable PacifiKids are on a mission to share why the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is the best minivan around. I have a fun contest to share that could involve a fun field trip for you or a brand new car!

With no adults to be seen and everything captured on hidden camera, anything can happen when the PacifiKids sell real families Chryslers new minivan!

The PacifiKids are also bringing ‘test drives’, known as Field Trips, to five cities across America, awarding 25 families with a test drive experience, surprising five families with a content-worthy adventure. Guess what? One of those cities is Washington, DC!

  • But, in order to go on a field trip, you need a permission slip! Anyone can fill out theirs on the Pacifikids website, where submitting it is easy as 1-2-3.
