Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: What You Need to Know

September 28th, 2017 by

With the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, Chrysler brings innovation to the minivan class it helped create. The hybrid minivan has the same classic design as the regular Pacifica, but with the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) efficiency and reduced gasoline dependence – it is the best minivan in its class and one of the best 7-passenger vehicles on the market.

Gas-Electric Combo

The Pacifica is an all-new model. Debuting after the introduction of the Pacifica in mid-2016, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the first PHEV minivan in America. Known as family vehicles, minivans are used to make a lot of quick trips, like bringing kids to school, sports practice and running errands, so the Pacifica was the perfect candidate for PHEV technology. Due to the Pacifica Hybrid’s 16 kWh lithium-ion battery, the Pacifica Hybrid can travel up to 33 miles on pure electricity, that means no gas and no tailpipe emissions.

The Pacifica Hybrid’s combined gas-electric range with a full tank of gas and fully charged battery is 566 miles. One tank of gas to Disney World from anywhere in the state of Florida! Filling up at the gas station will be thing of the past, for drivers that regularly charge their hybrid. Using a Level 2 charger, which can be found at most charging stations and installed into a home, drivers can expect to recharge a drained battery in about two hours. When drivers do need to drive and don’t have a charged battery, they can rely on the vehicle’s efficient 3.6L V6 engine.

Trims    

The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is available in two trims: Premium and Platinum.

The Pacifica Hybrid Premium, which is the base Pacifica Hybrid trim, comes standard with leather seating, heated front seats, 18-inch wheels, power-adjustable driver seat, tri-zone automatic climate control and 60/40 split folding third-row seat. Standard tech includes an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display, Bluetooth connection, hands-free voice commands, ParkView rear back up camera, and Blind spot and rear cross path detection.

Interested in kicking it up a notch? The Pacifica Hybrid Platinum trim is equipped with 18-inch wheels, hands-free operation for the sliding doors and liftgate, upgraded leather seats, ventilated front seats, and a navigation system. Additionally, the Pacifica Hybrid Platinum also features the Uconnect theater rear-seat entertainment system, which comes bundled with a 13-speaker Alpine audio system, DVD/Blu-ray player, seatback video screens and a household-style power outlet.
