When searching for a new vehicle what is your first step? For most people it is research! When researching the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, you will find plenty of amazing reviews. One of our favorite recent reviews was written by Aaron Turpen from New Atlas. Aaron refers to the Pacifica Hybrid as “plug-in goodness for the whole family.”
Keep in mind this minivan is not only responsible for changing the game and making “minivans great again,” but it is literally the only hybrid minivan on the market. How awesome would it be to have a capable, child friendly, safe and spacious van that is also the most eco-friendly minivan on the streets? The review is pretty lengthy and really in depth. However, there are some main points we would like to reiterate!
- The 3.6-liter V6 engine paired with dual electric motors, a electronically variable transmission and 16 kWh battery provides plenty of power to the hybrid. In fact, the vehicle is able to produce up to 260 horsepower.
- The fuel efficiency is unmatched! The Pacifica Hybrid has a hybrid fuel economy of 84 MPGe with a total driving range of 566 miles each charge and fill.
- Unlike the non-hybrid Pacifica, the Pacifica Hybrid does not have Stow ‘n Go seats in the second row because the battery takes up that space, but the second row seats are removable and there is Stow ‘n Go seating in the third-row seats.
- The standard and optional technology is amazing with this van! There are over 100 standard and available safety features. You never have to worry about the safety of your family in the van! The New Atlas review really liked the optional SurroundView 360-degree camera because it provides an incredible view of all angles around the vehicle and it helps drivers be more aware of the things around them.
