The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the Perfect Family Hauler

 

If you’re looking for the ideal new car for your family, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid delivers. This sleek, feature-packed minivan is a plug-in hybrid, which delivers a surprising amount of power while saving your wallet at the pump. New for 2017, this completely redesigned vehicle is an updated version of the Chrysler Town and Country.

Those who are hesitant about making the switch to hybrid for the first time will be hard-pressed to tell the difference in driving dynamics behind the wheel. Just plug the Pacifica in each night and it will be fully charged and ready for you in the morning with 60 miles of battery life before a gas fill-up is required. The Pacifica is powered by two motors that offer plenty of acceleration with 260 horsepower (combined). Fans of the minivan tout its quick acceleration and agile handling, especially for its size.

Another aspect of this minivan that makes it perfect for those with big families is the design, featuring a low floor and sliding side doors that make loading and unloading a breeze, even if you’re still dealing with cumbersome child safety seats. And for grocery trips, the third row folds completely flat and the cargo area features a low floor as well (not to mention 140.5 total cubic feet of storage space).

Inside, the Pacifica Hybrid is luxuriously well-appointed, with standard features that include leather upholstery, heated first-row seats, a power liftgate to make those grocery hauls even easier, a rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert. Upgrading to the Platinum trim adds extras like a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system, hands-free side doors and liftgate, and additional driver assistance tech features like forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and a 360-degree camera to detect obstacles on all sides of the vehicle. You’ll enjoy spacious seating for up to seven and a hushed ride thanks to premium insulation.

Tech fans will find plenty to love in the Pacifica Hybrid, including remote-operated tri-zone automatic climate control and an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system through which you can access streaming media as well as popular apps like Yelp. You’ll also enjoy a six-speaker audio system and satellite radio. If you upgrade to the Platinum, you’ll also experience a premium 13-speaker Alpine audio system, navigation, and adaptive cruise control. To see your options, check one out at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

It’s no wonder that U.S. News and World Report named the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid one of the best minivans for families; it also received a perfect five-star review from Car and Driver and was named one of the best minivans of 2017 from Cars.com. As the only plug-in hybrid minivan currently on the market, it deserves to be at the top of your list if you’re looking for a green family-hauling machine. In fact, families who purchase the Pacifica Hybrid are eligible for up to $7,500 in federal tax credits in additional to applicable state credits. This incentive makes the Pacifica Hybrid not only one of the best minivans in its segment, but also one of the best values available.
