Is the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica More Practical Than a Ram Truck?

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica was designed to be a minivan so sexy, even non-parents would want to drive one. That may not have panned out, exactly.

The Pacifica has many features, like its built-in vacuum cleaner, that appeal strongly to parents, as well as features that should appeal to everyone... but to many LeMars drivers, a minivan is a minivan, and minivans are only for people with kids.

Challenging that notion, Cars.com did a full comparison of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica vs. the Ram 1500.

While most drivers looking for a hard-working utility vehicle would immediately choose the Ram, Cars.com found that the minivan performed better when it came to hauling cargo—especially large cargo that needed protection from the elements.

There's no comparison when it comes to raw power and off-road capability, but what the Pacifica lacks in towing, it makes up for with passenger space and fuel economy.
