Chrysler's showroom has been really silent recently. However, a new model has awaken the showroom, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica --- named as one of the best cars to buy in 2017. The Chrysler's showroom also showcased Chrysler 200 and Chrysler 300.

Chrysler 200 has a minor standard and optional equipment shuffling. 18-inch alloy wheels and black exterior are included in its New Dark Appearance package for touring models. It is at its best when it comes to safety and style, but has a drawback with its rear seat headroom. It is also struggling in sales against its strong competitors; thus, the company announced that it will be discontinued. Enter Chrysler 300 that comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto infotainment system, and an improved processing power. Pinch, tap, and gesture controls are included with its infotainment as well. Although it's wearing out, Chrysler 300's big footprint, big shoulders, and big V-8 power still makes it attractive, according to The Car Connection.

On a brighter note, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid will replace the Dodge Grand Caravan. It is only available in 3.6 liter V-6 and 9-speed automatic transmission, along with a wide range of trim levels that starts at around $30,000. It plays an old-style minivan strength and takes off on thrilling new directions with its design and plug-in hybrid technology, The Car Connection reported. The reinvented Chrysler minivan, indeed, has gotten better --- reclaiming its minivan throne. It is the first ever minivan that consumers have gone nuts for quite some time. Beyond those sliding doors, Chrysler also offers to be a family's best car choice in the market.

Nothing else is reportedly happening at Chrysler. Only Chrysler's 200 mid-sized sedan is about to be faced out. And while its 300 full-size sedan is deemed remarkable, it's beginning to look and feel outdated --- even if it's still considered a new model. In the near future, Chrysler is anticipated to get a crossover SUV model.
