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 result of Stow ‘n Go seating is up to 140.5 cubic feet of flat cargo space. Read the rest of this entry >>

Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid available at Miami Lakes Chrysler

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.  

Fuel Economy

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.
