The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica practically wrote the textbook for what should be expected in a luxury minivan. This car involves the fusion of a 3.6-liter V6 engine and dual electric motors, which can be geared with an available all-wheel drive (AWD) system. On top of its movie star looks, it is quite mindful of its road manners no matter if you’re making a simple commute to work or a long drive for this holiday season.
Known for having one of the most interior features in its segment, and from our standards, unbeatable technologies, the Pacifica remains supreme in this minivan regime. Here are the Highlighting Features of the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.
Let’s face it, there’s a 90% chance that you didn’t opt for a minivan just for its features. Most buyers for this segment are in dire need of space, which the Pacifica and its Hybrid variant have a lot of. The cabin also houses many compartments and storage areas, as well as slide-out bins.
Buyers can accommodate 7 people within the three rows, there’s also an Easy Access feature, that allows passengers to easily step in and out of the third row just the simple left of the lever. Moreover, cargo space extends significantly when you fold down the second and third-row seats.
Amazon Fire TV Compatibility
In order to avoid the dreaded “Are we there yet question”, the family-friendly automaker packs on the entertainment features, starting with optional Amazon Fire TV. This technology allows the occupants to stream their preferred TV shows and movies through screens mounted on the rear seats.
Front seat passengers aren’t left out, as they can also enjoy this feature…once the car is in park. Makes sense, as it might serve as a distraction for the driver.
Stylish Interior Design
The best way to describe the style of the cabin is trendy yet classy. Of course, the overall quality is dependent on what trim level you select, especially with the higher ones which involve premium Nappa leather, quilted pillows, and distinctive accents. There is also a suede headliner and Berber carpet crown on the Limited and Pinnacle models.
UConnect 5 Software
Another integral part of Stellantis vehicles is the Uconnect infotainment system, with the Hybrid’s 2022 model bringing on the latest Uconnect 5. This new system has built-in Amazon Alexa, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and even a wifi hotspot.
Another noteworthy in-cabin tech feature is the FamCam camera…at least for the parents. This system allows one to keep an eye on their little ones in the rear seats via the front seat monitor, this can also be used for those who are animal lovers. So your little critter, no matter furry or not, has a bit of a mischievous streak, this monitoring system practically acts as the eyes in the back of your head.
Excellent Safety Rating
Over the years, the Hybrid model has received countless awards, and a good part of this reason is the slew of safety features that it encompasses, such as automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and pedestrian detection, which are standard.
While the minivan hasn’t been tested by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety), it has received a “good” rating on all six crash tests. At the same time, it was given a five-star rating from the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) for 2022, with five stars given for the side crash test, and four for the rollover and frontal crash tests.
One of the most obvious advantages of the 2022 Pacifica Hybrid is its fuel efficiency due to the half-electric powertrain. The vehicle is able to run on 32-miles of electric range, which is great for just a simple commute to the grocery store or some other short errand.
The combination of the V6 motor offers 30 mpg on the highway/city. Alternatively, when the electric motor is running, drivers can revel in an estimated 82 MPGe.
Power Sliding Doors
You can count on the Pacifica to provide a helping hand. Its hands-free sliding doors are helpful when your hands are full, and all that’s required is to sway your foot beneath the door, enabling it to open.
By using the same foot motion, you can open the liftgate. Furthermore, the minivan is geared with a Tri-Pane panoramic sunroof that brings you a little bit closer to the great outdoors.
