The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is a standout in the world of traditional minivans, but for those looking for a little more horsepower and versatility, look no further than the 2017 Toyota Sienna. While the Pacifica boasts solid fuel economy at a slightly lower MSRP, does it win the battle against the more powerful and useful 2017 Sienna?
With more fuel capacity, more horsepower and more torque, the Sienna wins the battle of force between these two minivan stalwarts. And at 8.9 L/100 KM highway and 12.5 L/100 KM in the city, it does so at virtually the same exact fuel efficiency as the 2017 Pacifica (8.4/12.9). Plus, with more cargo room (1.1 m³ vs. 0.9 m³ for Pacifica) and maximum cargo capacity (4.3m³. vs. 3.9 m³), the Sienna offers families more room for strollers and other travelling essentials than its Chrysler counterpart.
