The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Adds Kelley Blue Book To Its Long List of Accolades

Not to sound too pretentious, but the Chrysler Pacifica is used to living in the limelight, more particularly when it comes to winning accolades and gaining critical acclaim from noteworthy organizations like the automotive website Cars, as well as Motorweek, New York Daily News Autos Team and much more! This year’s Pacifica gets its favoritism from the editors at Kelley Blue Book, a California-based vehicle valuation and automotive research company. More specifically, Chrysler’s 2020 Pacifica Hybrid has been established on KBB’s list of 10 Best Plug-in Hybrid Cars Under $40,000, taking second place.

“Running errands around town is a big part of family minivan life, and the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid lets you do it without having to use a drop of gas for 32 miles. You can get a full day’s ‘honey-do’ list checked off within that range — and this is the only minivan that offers a plug-in hybrid powertrain,” according to the KBB editors.

Let’s analyze what makes this Chrysler Hybrid so great!

Energetic Performance

Driving the Pacifica is nothing short of heavenly, especially for long road trips. One can easily plug it in overnight in a 120-volt outlet and you’ll get a 26 to 36-mile charge before the minivan switches to its gas power function of the 3.6-liter V6 with 287 horsepower, the switch is so seamless that drivers will never even notice the switch. Additionally, this cool cruiser has a total driving range of 520 miles and only takes 2 hours to recharge.

The ride is easy and very comfortable for any family, it also very suitable for cargo. Power is very sufficient from this engine and its electric power likely contributes to its very natural and quick feel when it comes to its torque. Handling is also very capable and reliable for this vehicle and is without fault on the highway.

Family-Friendly Reputation and Fun Features

It’s worth noting that just a few weeks ago, 2020 Pacifica Hybrid was also named “Best Eco Pick” by PARENTS Magazine due to the abundance of its incredible safety features. This plug-in certainly deserves its credit as it has a wide range of safety features systems, like the 360-degree Surround View Camera in order to help reveal potential dangers or the Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, which also aids in avoiding an accident.

The electric minivan has also been recognized for its fun and entertaining features, such being the user-friendly Uconnect 4 infotainment system that is equipped with an 8.4-inch touch screen. This eye-catching screen allows drivers to oversee the performance of their vehicle as well as scan through his or her driving history and schedule charging.

Other noteworthy features include the availability of Uconnect Theater, which lets rear passengers access their favorite movies and games. Since the system comes with wireless headphones, you won’t have to worry about the noise. Best of all, it also comes with two 10-inch HD touch screens.

Is The Chrysler 300 Still Relevant?

 

Should Chrysler’s 300 Model Stay On The Market?

The Chrysler 300 made its first appearance in 2005 and was marketed as a full-size luxury sedan that was known for its economic dominance over its competitors as well as its energetic V8 engine among higher trims. Since 2011, the second generation (LX) is still cruisin’ around but of course with much more impressive updates and improvements in style. 

However, some might stop and wonder if the one and only luxury sedan of the company is still relevant since Chrysler often pushes hard on its minivans more than anything else. Is this vehicle still the one to watch in automotive markets? Let’s find out!

Analysis

Starting off with the highlight of the 300 sedan is its spirited and powerful engine options. The standard engine on most trims is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that gives out 292 horsepower with 260 lb-ft of torque, it also collaborates with the 8-speed automatic transmission. This engine is very equipped in moving the vehicle through many twists and turns, as it has plenty of torque to work with.

The second engine is the 5.7-liter Hemi V8, which is standard on the 300 C trim but optional on the 300S. This type of engine is incomparable in its segment, and even provides a bit of nostalgia when American sedans were more prevalent on freeways. On the flip side, the 300’s V8 still keeps it fresh by earning an EPA-estimated 25 mpg on the highway and with a one of a kind acceleration with a roar that shows its dominance. 

Drivers can enjoy even more mechanical zeal with the Hemi’s 363 horsepower with 394 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the Sport Mode transmission is standard on the 300S and 300C and helps to adjust the transmission’s shift.

In terms of its overall look, simply put, the 2020 Chrysler 300 has a very old American feel to it, but not in an outdated kind of way but more of an old money of way. It has a very attractive type of elegance and grace about it that somehow manages to be a bit refreshing. There are also a variety of different exterior color options like Granite Crystal Metallic Clear Coat, Maximum Steel Metallic Clear Coat, Ceramic Grey Clear Coat, Gloss Black, Silver Midst Clear Coat, Ocean Blue Metallic Clear Coat, Velvet Red Pearl Coat and Bright White Clear Coat. 

By judging from the outside, shoppers will be surprised to find that the interior isn’t as nearly as conservative as the interior. All of the intricate details inside, and the seats especially have a very premium look and feel to them. There are also a lot of cool and advanced tech features to work with like dual-zone climate control, 8-way-power driver’s seat, keyless entry, dash-mounted analog clock, 6-speaker AM/FM/satellite radio with an 8-inch touch screen, USB input and Bluetooth streaming.

On higher trims, you’ll find more exciting prizes like a rearview camera, panoramic sunroof, leather interior, heated and cooled front seats, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, navigation, power-operated rear sunshade, an 8.4-inch touchscreen display with the Uconnect information and entertainment system.

So What’s The Verdict?

Without a shout of a doubt, the Chrysler 300 is still a strong player in the automotive market. Based on the overall look, this car might be recommended to drivers who like a bit more of a traditional look and feel, though it can still drive better than a lot of other vehicles in its segment.

It is also recommended to buy this cool cruiser from Miami Lakes Automall. We sell lots of family-friendly Chrysler vehicles, including its Chrysler 300 model and for an incredibly economical price of about $35,000.

2020 Chrysler 300 Review: The Engine That Roars

You’d probably never know just by looking at it but the 2020 Chrysler 300 sedan has been around since 2005, the same year the sitcom How I Met Your Mother premiered, American Idol was still relevant, and Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah’s couch. Since then Chrysler designers have certainly exerted themselves with impressive updates and intricate style changes in order to keep the full-sized vehicle dominant in its category and it’s safe to say that it works. 

In addition to the fact that Chrysler makes sure that its products are constantly up-to-date, one thing that always provides dominance over its competitors is its economic prices and its famous V8 engine on its higher trims.

Engine and Drive

A standard feature on this year’s Chrysler 300 is the favored 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. This engine produces 292 horsepower on Touring and Limited trims but 300 with the 300S. The V6 is more than equipped to swiftly move through the vehicle through crossroads has plenty of torque to work with (260 lb-ft for Touring and Limited; 264 for 300S).

The company’s 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is standard on the 300C and optional on the 300S. It produces 363 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque, creating an incredibly dynamic and energetic performance.

Chrysler’s 300 model can be best described as quiet yet powerful. This sedan has plenty of zeal even from the standard V6 engine but the Hemi V8 engine provides an exhilarating acceleration with 363 horsepower with a ride that is leveled and exact thanks to its 8-speed automatic transmission. The Sport mode transmission is standard on the 300S and 300C and helps to adjust the transmission’s shift.

Playing devil’s advocate, some may find the extra amount of thrust and exhaust rumble of the V8 exceptionally appealing but the combination of capability, effectiveness and the overall price with the V-6 engine makes it an absolute must-have, especially with the plethora of optional gadgetry. Additionally, for those who live in an area in which dealing with snow and slippery roads are common, it might be worth investing in the all-wheel-drive. Overall, the performance is phenomenal and can easily outfox a Toyota Avalon or Chevy Impala.

Exterior

The look of the 2020 Chrysler 300 model no doubt embodies the look of American luxury sedans. It has a vibe about it that is a combination of a yacht club and senior executive. It has a unique design that you just can replicate and still continues to emanate attractive refinement.

The Chrysler sedan displays blacked-out characteristics and offers Sport Appearance and Chrome Appearance packages on the introductory 300 Touring model, both of which feature 20-inch wheels. The top Hemi-electrified 300 C model includes Platinum Chrome on its grille and trim. It also includes a great selection of color options like Granite Crystal Metallic Clear Coat, Maximum Steel Metallic Clear Coat, Ceramic Grey Clear Coat, Gloss Black, Silver Midst Clear Coat, Ocean Blue Metallic Clear Coat, Velvet Red Pearl Coat and Bright White Clear Coat.

Interior and Features

As with most Chrysler models, the 300 provides a roomy and comfortable interior, and anyone who tags along for the ride will enjoy the generous amount of room. This sedan also has a trunk that is 16-cubic-foot, providing more than enough room for all of your luggage and other cargo necessities.

The dashboard and seats have a high-class look to them and there are a lot of advanced gadgets and gizmos to work with such as dual-zone climate control, 8-way-power driver’s seat, keyless entry, dash-mounted analog clock, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a split-folding rear seat and 17-inch aluminum wheels. Cool entertainment features are also included, like with the 6-speaker AM/FM/satellite radio with an 8-inch touch screen, USB input and Bluetooth streaming.

Grander trims include a rearview camera, panoramic sunroof, leather interior, heated and cooled front seats, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, navigation and power-operated rear sunshade. In addition to the 8.4-inch touchscreen display with Chrysler’s user-friendly Uconnect information and entertainment system, all models come with a dapper 7-inch information display between the analog tachometer and speedometer.

Chrysler Lends A Helping Hand With Its No Kid Hungry Partnership

No Kid Hungry

The Chrysler company is giving back by expanding its union with No Kid Hungry, a national campaign that is dedicated to ending child hunger in America. No Kid Hungry launched 10 years ago in 2010, and since then, it has provided more than 1 billion meals to impoverished children and helps decrease childhood hunger in America by one third. At this moment till the end of the school year, every Chrysler Pacifica that is sold will be another contribution by the popular minivan company towards No Kid Hungry, thus providing hundreds of meals to kids nationwide.

“Chrysler first partnered with No Kid Hungry in 2018 to help in their goal of ending childhood hunger,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “As a brand that is focused on making life easier for families, we at Chrysler want to continue to help those in need and make it easier for families to help others. So with each Pacifica sold, we’ll help No Kid Hungry provide up to 500 meals to kids in need with the goal of providing up to 10 million meals.”

“One in seven kids in America live in families that struggle with hunger. We know a hungry child can’t learn, can’t focus, can’t be who they want to be,” said Tom Nelson, President and CEO, Share Our Strength. “We are so grateful for Chrysler’s support of our work to ensure kids have the food they need to thrive.”

Additionally, Chrysler supplements these endeavors by working with families by easing their financial burden through Chrysler Pacifica Family Pricing.  Family Pricing eliminates the need for negotiating when buying a vehicle by allowing all customers the same remarkable discount. This deal has already begun from March 19 and has zero-percent financing for 60 months included on every Pacifica model from this year such as the Pacifica Touring and the Pacifica Hybrid Limited. Additionally, for a limited time, no payment for 90 days is optional for gasoline-powered Pacifica models.

To add on even further, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit and additional state incentives.

Help Chrysler Give Back

If you were already looking for a family-friendly vehicle, a Chrysler Pacifica model is undoubtedly the best one on the market and with the company’s collaboration with No Kid Hungry, there is no time better than right now.
