What's New for 2017: Chrysler

December 2, 2016

It has been mighty quiet in Chrysler's showrooms lately, but there's one especially good reason to make you way to one: The Chrysler Pacifica, a model we named as our Best Car to Buy 2017.

Really, the rebooted Chrysler minivan (which discards its Town & Country nomenclature) is that good. It's the first minivan we've gone crazy over in a long time, and, if consumers are willing to look beyond its sliding doors, it's the best family car on the market by a wide margin. 

But there's not a whole lot else going on right now at Chrysler. The company's 200 midsize sedan is about to bite the dust and its 300 full-size sedan, while still impressive, is starting to look and feel very dated. A new 300 isn't too far off, however, and Chrysler is expected to get a crossover SUV model in the near future as well.
