The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has Specs That Stun

Chrysler invented the minivan in the early 1980s with the introduction of the Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager. In 2017 they are once again advancing the minivan into new territory. It starts with the utility. Chrysler continues to develop innovations like the Stow ‘n Go® seating solution that allows the rear passenger seats to fold quickly into the floor. The big step forward for the new Pacifica is the introduction of the first hybrid minivan. It works by combining a gas engine with an electric motor. It’s been designed to automatically switch between electric-only power and hybrid power to optimize efficiency. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid can even drive on electricity alone. It offers enough electric-only range to allow you to run short errands around town without burning a single drop of gas. On longer trips, the hybrid powertrain means that the Pacifica has a huge total driving range. Chrysler has also equipped the 2017 Pacifica with the latest safety tech such as Forward Collision Warning and LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist. To top it all off, Chrysler has wrapped the Pacifica in some seriously stylish exterior design. LED elements in the headlights, attractive chrome trim, and an overall sleek design makes this one fine looking vehicle.
