chrysler minivan miami lakes chrysler

Minivans (until recently) have gotten a bad rap. People think they are only the “soccer mom” vehicle with no style. However, that is no longer the case! Over the last decade Chrysler has been killin’ the minivan game. Don’t believe us? The facts below will make you want a minivan no matter who you are (mom, dad, teen, and the list goes on).

However, for years now, even with the Chrysler Town & Country, Chrysler has run the minivan world. Chrysler’s minivans are always above average when it comes to style, tech and safety and are always affordable.

FCA Looking to Electrify the Industry

FCA (Fiat-Chrysler Automobile) brands seem to be jumping on the electric and hybrid car game recently! The reason for this is the consumer’s growing need for environmentally friendly vehicles. Diesels have always been the option many chose over gas as it is more fuel efficient than gas. However, this shift is changing now that the popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles has taken off.

Hybrid and electric vehicles are no doubt better for this environment than gas or diesel. With that being said, FCA is aiming to please! Their first go around with electric vehicles started with the Fiat 500e Electric Car. Then of course came recently the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.

The Pacifica was already the most talked about minivan, and with the hybrid drivetrain it is unbeatable. Infact, there is no other hybrid minivan on the market. This incredible hybrid comes with a 3.6-liter V6 engine (same as the gas model), but is paired with dual electric motors and a 16 kWh 360 V lithium-ion battery. Together this combination allows for 84 MPGe, over 500 miles between gas fill ups, and 33 miles of pure electric range. [click to continue…]

The Chrysler 300 makes Consumer Reports Recommended Vehicles List

 chrysler 300 consumer reports

Consumer Reports has put the Chrysler 300 on its list of recommended vehicles. The Chrysler 300 was added to the list after the addition of a software update known as AutoPark, which is designed to prevent two hazardous situations.

The first hazardous situation is if the driver attempts to exit the car when it is not in park. The software will than recognize the fact that the driver is no longer present and automatically shift the transmission into park. The other situation is when the drivers tries to shut off the engine when the Chrysler is still in gear. When this happens, the transmission shifts into park and an accessory mode is activated for 30 minutes which controls the radio and power windows.
