2017 “Best Buy” – Minivan segment
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica took home the “Best Buy” title in the minivan segment. Honestly this doesn’t really come as a surprise. The Pacifica minivan has been killin’ it since it was released earlier this year! With all of the standard style features and technology, how could it not? The van came in and crushed the previous reputations of minivans, all while building some truly impressive sales numbers.
Not only did the Pacifica revolutionize the minivan segment, but also a vehicle’s capability of storage and cargo volume. With a family comes road trips to Disney, sports or band practices, carpooling and so on. Families have a need for plenty of cargo space and that makes the Pacifica’s Stow ‘n Go storage system the perfect family van This system allows seats to physically fold into the floor of the vehicle, allowing for plenty of flat cargo space.

The all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is getting a more fuel efficient “twin” and it will be at Miami Lakes Automall anyday. The “twin” is the Pacifica Hybrid and it is a plug-in electric hybrid version (PHEV) of the Pacifica and it is more fuel efficient than Chrysler anticipated.
This is the first hybrid or PHEV minivan ever released and it is safe to say the Pacifica Hybrid is a game changer for the auto industry and families. Here is what you need to know!
Engine + Battery
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is powered by an upgraded version of the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that is in the standard Pacifica and it also has a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery and a dual-motor. But don’t worry, the electric system doesn’t mean less horsepower, the Pacifica Hybrid produces 260 horsepower, which is just behind the standard Pacifica, which produces 287-horsepower.
As a PHEV, the Pacifica Hybrid can operate on only electricity, only gas, or a combination of both and there are fuel economy numbers for all three — MPG, MPGe, and the total range from a fully charged battery. MPGe stands for “miles per gallon equivalent” and it is the fuel efficiency when the battery and engine work together. MPG is like usual, it is the engine’s efficiency when only the engine is working.

Looking for a moderately priced safe and tech savvy sedan? Check out the 2017 Chrysler 200 at Miami Lakes Chrysler.
The Chrysler 200 is comfortable and surprisingly spacious for a sedan. The four-door, five seater vehicle is 192 inches long and 59 inches high, so there is plenty of room for friends or family to sit comfortably on a road trip, even when the driver’s seat is pushed back.
Having room for drivers and passengers is always important, but so is cargo room. Which is why the 200’s trunk is 16 cubic feet, making it one of the largest trunks in it’s class. In addition, the 200 has a 60/40 back-row split seating system, so the back seats can be folded down when extra trunk space is needed.
Technology has never been so important to drivers. This is why the Chrysler 200 comes fully equipped with awesome technology features, and has plenty of extra options for those who like a little more! [click to continue…]

Having a hard time picking the best three-row SUV for your family? What if we told you the new Chrysler Pacifica is an even better option than an SUV? The all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is sleek, technologically advanced, and provides you with features a three-row SUV never could.
Obviously, any three-row SUV will have a lot of space because of the fact that it has all that seating. However, the Pacifica is able to offer more space for passengers and cargo than any SUV. Except for the massive SUVs, like the Chevy Suburban, many SUVs with three-row seating have seating for 7 passenger vehicles, well the Pacifica is available with 7 or 8 passenger seating.
Additionally, the cargo volume in the Pacifica is much larger than almost any other three-row SUV. Typically, SUVs have around 80 cubic feet of cargo space, but the Pacifica offers 140.5 cubic feet of cargo volume. How is that possible? The Pacifica’s Stow ‘n Go seating system. This system allows the second row seats to fold completely into floor storage bins allowing for plenty of flat storage space. When the seats are not folded flat, the floor storage bins can be used for tons of things, like groceries, luggage, or even beach equipment. [click to continue…]
