Chrysler Pacifica’s Stow ‘n Go Seating and Storage System Explained
Chrysler introduced the Stow ‘n Go Seating and Storage System to the Chrysler Town & Country in 2005, and that feature set the bar high for minivans. Chrysler has continually improved the feature since 2005 and the Stow ‘n Go Seating and Storage System became even more impressive and versatile when Chrysler replaced the Town & Country with the Chrysler Pacifica and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.
The Chrysler Pacifica is available with seating for seven or eight passengers, and the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is available with seating for seven passengers. The Seven passenger seating configuration is made up of two bucket seats in the second row and the third row is a three-person 60/40 folding bench seat, and when the Pacifica has seating for eight passengers, a third seat is added to the second row.
Stow ‘n Go Seating
The Chrysler Pacifica comes standard with Stow ‘n Go seating in the second- and third-rows. However, due to a battery that makes it possible for the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid to be powered by pure electricity, the Pacifica Hybrid only has Stow ‘n Go seats in the third row.
The Stow ‘n Go seating system is made up of two main components – seats that can be folded up, and storage bins built-in to the vehicle’s floor- and those two components make the Chrysler Pacifica unlike any other vehicle. Unlike SUVs or other minivans, which require a user to remove the seats from the vehicle for a completely flat cargo area behind the first row seats, the seats of the Chrysler Pacifica can be stored into the floor of the vehicle and that creates 140.5 cubic feet of flat storage space.
The Stow ‘n Go seating seats can be configured in up to 243 ways because users can fold up all of the seats in either row, or just some of the seats in a row. The versatility of the seats make it possible for people to be able to a number of large and oversized objects while also providing seating in the second and third rows, too.
Extra Seating Features
In addition to the convenience of being able to store the seats away, the Chrysler Pacifica and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid are available with some additional convenient Stow ‘n Go features.
Stow ‘n Go Assist
Stow ‘n Go Assist is a feature that makes it easier to stow the seats away. With a push of a button, the front passenger seat will slide forward and that makes it just a little easier to access items stored in the floor bins or to fold a seat up and store it away.
Power Folding Third-Row Seat
The Pacifica is also available with a power folding third-row seat. The power folding third-row seat makes it possible to remotely store the third-row seats in the floor storage bins. Or, if the driver just wants to improve the visibility out of the rearview mirror, the driver can use a button to remotely lower the headrests in the third-row.
Chrysler also created removable plastic cargo bins that fit in the second-row storage compartments. The bins are removable and they make it possible for users to fill up the storage compartments with ice to keep food and ice cold when camping, on a road trip or when tailgating.
The Chrysler Pacifica really does make life a lot easier. Plenty of seating, space and tech make the Pacifica a versatile vehicle that can handle all of life’s crazy needs. Shop for the Chrysler Pacifica at Hollywood Chrysler Jeep, we have a huge selection of inventory.
