Minivan and Chrysler are a combination that has proven extremely successful for the auto-manufacturer. Offering quality, style, convenience and an enviable multi-purpose capability, the Chrysler Pacifica is a vehicle that is highlighting an all-purpose luxury style. The Pacifica gained ever-increasing popularity and served a variety of market related segments, with class and style. Driving ability and comfortable riding are enhanced by all-around space availability. The Pacifica has something for everyone!
The Chrysler Pacifica Reached New Levels of Consumer Appeal
Although some motorists may have their own opinions, it cannot be denied that the Pacifica Minivan from Chrysler is more than a force to contend with in this market segment. This seven-to-eight passenger minivan has taken over; with its style, design and overall capabilities, features and critically its general consumer appeal.
Going straight to the heart of this vehicle, we have an entirely new modern Chrysler Pacifica minivan with an original platform and the option of a Hybrid. The non-hybrid version offers power from a 3.6-litre V6 engine, generating 287 horsepower with a torque of 262 lb-ft. This in turn, is linked to a 9-speed automatic transmission. If you're considering the top-of-range model; it's a plug-in Chrysler Pacifica hybrid with a lithium-ion battery, with an Atkinson cycle adoption of the 3.6-litre V6 engine. Assisted by two front electric motors, you are served with a 260 horsepower output from the complete system.
The non-plug-in-hybrid 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has a reported fuel efficiency rating of 13.07 L/100 km in the city and 8.4 L/ 100 km on the highway. But, you can improve on this with the available engine stop-start system, which will give you 12.38 L/100 km for city driving. If we look further and into the Chrysler 2017 Pacifica plug-in hybrid it boasts a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The Electric Vehicle (EV) only range offers you a reported, in excess of 52-kilometre range, which must be seen as highly impressive, with a charging time of two hours at 240V.
Pacifica Safety and Other Features
The Chrysler 2017 Pacifica provides a wide and varied range of conveniently designed features. These include features such as active safety technologies, as well as the latest multimedia interface produced by the manufacturer. Gasoline versions are complete with “Stow N' Go” facilities for second-row storage under the floor. The seats are able to be tilted forward, which permits easier third-row access, without the issue of removing the child seat.
Other convenience oriented features include an onboard vacuum and safety-wise a 360-degree view multi-camera system. Add to this:
- Hands-free power liftgate
- UConnect Theatre entertainment system
- Two 10-inch touch screens
The new Chrysler Pacifica is particularly safety-conscious, with active safety technology that offers protection and security from applying the brakes by sensing an imminent collision to subtly correcting the steering wheel to maintain your correct drive lane. This Chrysler is an impressive and market impacting vehicle that drives great!
