Pacifica Hybrid Has Innovative and User-Friendly Tech

Chrysler Pacifica

Chrysler was just as careful to ensure the PHEVs usability and driveability as they were its drivetrain. In addition to the Pacifica Hybrid’s unbeatable fuel efficiency, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid helps drivers maximize fuel economy in a few different ways.  

Clear Numbers

The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid has a couple different displays to ensure that drivers have quick and easy access to the vehicle’s operating information. The Pacifica Hybrid is equipped with an 8.4-inch touchscreen in the dashboard and it provides drivers to all types of information, like power flow and driving history, and access to Uconnect. The vehicle also has an improved 7-inch information cluster located behind the steering wheel. In addition to the usual information included in a vehicle’s information cluster (mileage, speed, RPMs) the one on the Pacifica Hybrid shows whether the vehicle is operating in the hybrid or electric modes and the vehicle’s remaining distance.

Built-in Guidance

Since PHEVs are new and they operate differently than gas engines, another visual available in the vehicle’s displays is the “efficiency coach.” This system guides drivers on how to modulate the throttle in order to optimize battery and energy consumption while accelerating. It also provides helpful braking information to help drivers maximize the vehicle’s regenerative braking system, which transfers kinetic energy into electrical energy that is used to charge the battery while on the go.

Access at Your Fingers

Finally, Chrysler created a smartphone app, called Uconnect Access, to give drivers access to vehicle information when they are not in the car. One of the app’s coolest features is the ability for a user to schedule charging times and avoid charging the vehicle during peak rates. The app also provides estimated charging times, the battery’s current level of charger, and makes it possible for users to remotely turn the vehicle on and off.
