The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: The Best Family Car You Can Buy
The Chrysler Pacifica set out to make minivans cool again, and we think they succeeded. The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is an amazing family car because of all the features and technology it offers, and it also offers you great performance. Learn more below.
Let’s look at the hybrid part of the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. This van comes standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine and two electric motors. These combine to give you 260-horsepower, and they come with a continuously variable transmission. The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid that gives you up to 33 miles of range using electricity. However, the hybrid powertrain also helps with fuel efficiency when it hasn’t been plugged in.
According to CNBC, “On a trip that saw hundreds of miles of highway driving followed by a slow crawl through traffic on the George Washington Bridge and into upper Manhattan, the Pacifica delivered a staggering 29 miles per gallon. This, despite no charge in the battery to start and a car full of people and cargo.”
Technology is another important aspect of the 2018 Pacifica Hybrid. This vehicle has technology to keep the adults and the kids entertained. In the 2018 Pacifica Hybrid, you get an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, HD Radio, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, smartphone integration, and more. You also get standard safety features like blind spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and rear cross traffic alert. Other available features include a wireless charging pad, a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system, and so much more.
The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid also offers you a great deal of cargo space. This vehicle gives you 32.3 cubic feet behind the third row of seats, 87.5 cubic feet behind the second row, and 140.5 cubic feet behind the first row.
CNBC tells us, “If you want a non-minivan that bests the Pacifica’s cargo space, you have to step all the way up to a Chevy Suburban or Ford Expedition Max. Those trucks start above $50,000, where this fully loaded Pacifica ends and they both will struggle to deliver 23 miles per gallon at the top end. Oh, and buying a Pacifica Hybrid gets you a $7,500 federal tax credit.”
