CARS.COM — At Cars.com, we love the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivan. After naming it the Best of 2017, we bought one. Our Pacifica has a bunch of useful safety features, a surprisingly powerful drivetrain and Stow ‘n Go seats that make it especially easy to load it up with just about anything … kind of like a cargo van.
We also have a 2017 Mercedes-Benz Metris cargo van in our test fleet. How do they compare in terms of utility?
The two vehicles compare favorably in some respects. The Metris has a slightly longer wheelbase, but the Pacifica is just over an inch longer overall. The Pacifica’s curb weight — even with a full complement of seats — is only 108 pounds heavier than the Metris.
