Chrysler has continually pushed what it means to be a minivan in today’s automotive landscape. This is especially evident in the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid being the first hybrid minivan available in Canada. Beyond its excellent hybrid technology engine features, this minivan is also exceptionally safe and advanced with a variety of safety and technology systems. Southtown Chrysler has not only outlined what makes the Pacifica Hybrid such a great family option, but also as a modern vehicle.
The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid works from two electric motors and a gasoline engine. Its system alternates between the two, picking the most efficient source to use. The 16-kWh battery is easily charged, providing efficient power and renewable energy in as little as 2 hours with a 240-volt Mopar Level 2 charger. The minivan has Best-in-Class fuel economy, getting as a low as 2.6 Le/100 km in the city. For daily commuting it’s perfect, able to travel 53 km on its electric power. Using a full tank and a charge, you can get up to 911 km for those extended trips. This supremely efficient minivan saves you money and keeps you away from the pumps.
Just like the regular Chrysler Pacifica, in the Pacifica Hybrid, you expect the best in safety, and that’s exactly what you get. Over both safety and security features, there are over 100 available options to keep you and your family safe and secure. Keep track of everything going on around you, when parking and driving, thanks to its 360° camera, collision warning, park assist and cruise control with stop-and-go functionality. If you’re using the Pacifica Hybrid to teach a new driver, utilize its KeySense key fob. With this technology you can set speed limits, audio volume capacity and much more to ensure that the driver isn’t distracted or goes beyond their means when learning.
From driver to passengers, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid connects everybody inside to the vehicle, the road around and the outside world. The Uconnect media centre boasts a large 8.4-inch touchscreen, capable of controlling GPS, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity and more. Depending on your trim level, you can get a 6, 13 or 20 speaker audio system to enjoy your favourite music. For the rear passengers, the 2nd-row seats have 10-inch touchscreens for their own media, as well as USB ports that will keep their devices charged. Stay connected with all of the interior technology offered in the Pacifica Hybrid.
