Three Things to Know and Love About the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Minivan

The Chrysler Pacifica minivan has been stealing hearts and gathering awards ever since it first debuted for the 2017 model year. Now, it's not only reinventing the minivan genre, it's also given birth to the first-ever hybrid-powered minivan.

Let Santa Monica Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram introduce you to the innovative, 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan.

The Chrysler Pacifica is more than a hybrid vehicle that can operate on a combination of gas and electric power. That's because this minivan is also a plug-in hybrid, which means it can go pretty far on just electricity alone. In fact, it's estimated that this hybrid can travel 33 miles on electricity alone, with a full charge.

Here in the West Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and Marina Del Rey area, where gas prices can sometimes soar to hard-to-reach places, a vehicle that can save you money on gas is a smart investment.

Aside from its electric-only range, there's a lot for West Hollywood and Playa Vista drivers to know about this exciting model. Here are three of our Chrysler experts' need-to-know facts about this minivan:

  1. Because of the hybrid Pacifica's large, under-body, electric battery, a second-row bench seat is not available on this model. It can only be equipped with captain's style chairs and seating for seven. This may be one seat less than the gas-powered Pacifica, but you won't miss that eighth seat at the gas pump.
  2. Like its gas-powered sibling, the hybrid Chrysler Pacifica has a ton of features that Santa Monica families need to make their driving experiences easier and safer. Some of the available features include an in-vehicle entertainment system, and a built-in vacuum.
  3. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that works with two electric motors, for a total horsepower output of 260. Plus, in addition to its aforementioned electric-only range, this model gets around 33 mpg, which is a remarkable fuel economy rating for minivans.

Don't just get a family-friendly vehicle, get a vehicle that will ensure a great future for the environment, the planet, and generations of your family yet to come.
