Ready to learn more about the 2017 Pacifica's standard and available safety technology?



360° Surround View Camera

This available feature is great for those who want an all-around picture of the area surrounding their vehicle. Perfect for busy parking lots or busy driveways, the 360° Surround View Camera gives you a brid's-eye view of your Pacifica. It's able to do this with four body-mounted cameras that peer out on each side of the Pacifica, then the four images are digitally stitched together to project one bird's-eye view on your dashboard touchscreen. Now you'll be able to see your kids' skateboard before you back over it, even though you told them a thousand times to put it away.

Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking

This is another awesome available feature that can help keep you and your family safer on the road. Using sensors embedded in the vehicle, if your Pacifica is approaching another vehicle too quickly, you'll receive an audible alert as well as a visual warning. If the system determines that the rate of approach is too quick for you to stop in time, it can even automatically apply the brakes. This can greatly reduce the severity of or even potentially avoid an accident altogether, so not only are you safer on the road, the cars around you are, too!

ParkSense Rear Park Assist System with Stop, Parallel, & Perpendicular Park Assist

  • Available ParkSense® Assist System with Stop feature uses sensors in the front and rear of your Pacifica to provide both visual and audible warnings if it senses you getting close to bumping into something in reverse. The brakes are even able to automatically deploy if the system suspects a collision is unavoidable.
  • The Parallel & Perpendicular Park Assist System is a class-exclusive available feature for the 2017 Pacifica. It controls the steering while you take cues from your in-cabin screen and control gear positioning (forward or reverse), as well as brakes and acceleration. It doesn't quite park for you, but it's pretty close. No longer must you skip over that parallel parking space because you're not confident in your own ability-you can trust in your 2017 Pacifica to handle the hard part.

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go (ACC+)

Another impressive available feature sure to please drivers that spend more than ten minutes on the highway is Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go (ACC+). It uses embedded sensors to measure the driver-set distance between you and the vehicle traveling in front of it. If that vehicle slows down, your Pacifica automatically adjusts to maintain a safe following distance, and when they speed back up, your Pacifica will adjust accordingly. Let your calf muscle rest a while!

Blind Spot Monitoring

If you've got a car full of rambunctious kids, it can be hard to keep your eyes on the road while checking your blind spot for a lane change. The available Blind Spot Monitoring System can help you make safer, more confident lane changes. When a vehicle enters your blind spot, the system will illuminate an icon on the outside mirror of the side the obstruction is on. This is a quick and easy way to know it's not safe to change; when the light isn't illuminated, it's probably safe to change, but make sure to check anyway!

LaneSense Lane Departure Monitoring with Lane Keep Assist

Long drives get boring, and sometimes we can start to lose focus. This available feature is meant to combat that long-haul fatigue. If the system detects you drifting out of your lane unintentionally, it will let you know with an alert while gently guiding you back into your lane.

Rear Cross Path Detection

Reversing out of a parking spot or a driveway is not easy business. There are plenty of angles you just can't see, especially if someone has been so kind as to encroach in on you, narrowing your angles even further. The available Rear Cross Path Detection system uses a camera to monitor hard-to-see angles when you're in reverse. It's like having eyes in the back of your head, only way, way less creepy!
