While the Pacifica has been making a lot of headlines this year, some of the more advanced design features are starting to get the attention they deserve. One of these advanced features are the impressive upgrades in safety features that happen to be accompanied by an impressive decrease in vehicle weight. Part of this is due to a special combination of aluminum and magnesium that make up the tailgate and other parts of the body. The tailgate alone lost 18.5 pounds.

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica’s body accounts for 168 pounds of the weight loss, while the other comes from improvements to the interior. Impressively, the new Pacifica is longer and wider. The hydroformed high-quality and high-strength steel improves torsional stiffness by 88%, meaning the vehicle holds strong upon impact.
