Chrysler Pacifica’s Panoramic Sunroof is Perfect for the Fourth of July

How amazing does watching Fourth of July fireworks from a convertible sound? Reclined and relaxed in your seat with music on and fireworks from every direction. Sounds pretty great, right? However, for some people a convertible just isn’t practical because many convertible models are small and others are expensive, but there is another optio

The Chrysler Pacifica (a minivan) has an award-winning Tri-Pane Panoramic Sunroof and it gives all passengers (up to 7 or 8, depending on its configuration) an excellent overhead view, so it would be an ideal vehicle for viewing fireworks on the Fourth of July.

As the name implies, the Tri-Pane Panoramic Sunroof provides a pane of glass over all three rows of seats. The dual-pane above the front and second-row seats can be opened with the touch of a button, and the third-row pane is fixed, but it still provides a view of the sky above.

Worried about the panes being too hot in the dead of summer? The overhead glass is deep-tint glass and there are available power sunshades to keep the sun out when not in use.

Ever since Chrysler ended production on the Chrysler 300 SRT8 in 2014, the brand has slimmed down their lineup in the U.S., but that doesn’t mean the model is long forgotten, in fact, the Chrysler 300 SRT is still available in the Middle East, and customers ask us about it all the time.

  • A crazy powerful 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine.
  • All-wheel drive was an available drivetrain option.
  • An upscale and luxurious cabin with a smooth and quiet ride.
  • Heated front seats and leather upholstery.
  • 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in performance tires of course.

#Vanlife and Van Accessories For Your Journey

#vanlife

Have you heard about the lifestyle trend that lives by the hashtag, #VanLife? If not, it’s a lifestyle that some people have embraced to simplify their lives. These folks have transformed their minivan into a mobile home and are using it to travel and explore the country. Of course we don’t all have the luxury to turn our van into a temporary living space and travel, but there are a couple ways you can use some of the #VanLife inventions to make your everyday life much easier in your minivan.

Family Van

This is the #vanlife you think about first most likely! Although not all van owners have families, many do. To make your trips to school, play dates, and so on easier, check out these accessories:

  • A portable vacuum to clean up messes (the Chrysler Pacifica is actually available from the factory with a built-in vacuum).
  • Seat covers to minimize mess!
  • Back seat organizers to hold toys.
  • Either a portable DVD player/laptop or go all out with the available DVD players in vans (your kids will love you).

The Travel Van

If you are going to try to do a very brief #VanLife trip, these items are essential. Read the rest of this entry >>
