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!
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.
