A Hybrid Minivan

chrysler-pacifica-3

Sometimes driving a minivan comes with a bit of guilt. The kind of guilt that comes from not being able to reduce our carbon footprint when we have a family that needs a minivan. A minivan consumes fuel more like a truck than a small or mid-size sedan. Our friends at Chrysler has done something about our dilemma—the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.

 

Announced at the Detroit Auto Show last January and just recently debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the combo electric and gas #ChryslerPacificaHybrid can travel 30 miles in electric only mode. Plenty for errands after dropping off the kids at school. The Chrysler will get an estimated equivalent of 80 miles per gallon (MPGe) in the city and when traveling a long haul, the Pacifica Hybrid will travel 530 miles from gas pump to gas pump.

 

The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid comes with an app that will assist you in monitoring your charge level and in locating charging stations as you travel.

The engine in the Pacifica Hybrid is the first electric-gas minivan. It has a 3.6 liter V-6, a 16-kWh battery, and a twin motor set up to produce 260 horsepower. Positioning the battery pack under the middle row floor means you lose stow and go seating for that area, but the placement makes it easy to recharge in as fast as two hours using a 240-volt electrical outlet. Along with twin motors the Chrysler Pacifica has a double-motor transmission that moves the wheels with both motors instead of one as in traditional engines. Shifting is easy in the Pacifica Hybrid with a rotary knob.

 

The all-new Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid are total game-changers in the minivan segment. If you are in the market for a minivan and a vehicle that is kinder to the environment, you won’t find anything better than the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. Come into Pine Belt Chrysler Jeep and test-drive one today. You can also check them out on our website, www.pinebeltchryslerjeep.com.

Reinventing the Minivan with the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

Pine Belt 2 Reinventing the Minivan with the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

Chrysler is reinventing the minivan with SUV-like style and high-tech features. Additionally, it will be the first-ever hybrid minivan. Chrysler’s first-ever minivan drove off the assembly line in 1983. It quickly became the ideal vehicle to haul children as it offered sliding doors and a spacious cabin. By the early 1990s, over 500,000 Chrysler minivans were being sold each year. The 2000s marked the downfall of minivans in the U.S. market as crossovers became increasingly popular. In 2015, Fiat Chrysler sold less than 200,000 minivans in the United States as sales of the Chrysler Town & Country decreased by 28 percent. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has been developed to change all of that around. The minivan was revealed at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. The Pacifica has a sleeker design, lower ground clearance, larger wheels, and more luxurious features. The traditional sliding doors will have no handles and be hands-free. The minivan will be powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that delivers 287 horsepower. The hybrid version will have an electric driving range of 30 miles. Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep is excited to offer our customers the all-new Pacifica.
