When you’re in the market for an eco-friendly family vehicle, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid should be at the top of your list. Not only does it offer enough space for the kids to spread out, but it also helps you save money at the pump thanks to its plug-in hybrid powertrain. No matter which way you look at it, the new Pacifica Hybrid is a smart option that ticks all the boxes.
The 2017 Pacifica Hybrid minivan comes fully loaded with innovative features, even on the base Premium trim. Standard features include heated front seats, leather upholstery, a rearview camera, and a large touchscreen infotainment display screen. The Premium model also gets voice commands, Bluetooth connectivity, a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio, and second-row power windows. You’ll also love the broad spectrum of driver aids, including blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, a self-parking function for both perpendicular and parallel spaces, and rear cross-traffic alert.
Stepping up to the Platinum trim gets you even more features, including hands-free sliding doors, a hands-free liftgate, an upgraded 13-speaker Alpine audio system, Uconnect Theater rear-seat entertainment, a DVD/Blu-ray player, multiple USB ports, and a household-style power outlet. When you combine all this with a surround-view camera, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control, you’ve got the perfect family minivan that’s always road trip-ready.
Minivans have always suffered the reputation of being basic, boring family vehicles, but the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid proves anything but. The interior cabin is upscale with nicely appointed, soft-touch finishes. The windows and large mirrors eliminate blind spots for safer driving, while the minivan’s overall size is impressive. There’s plenty of hiproom and legroom here, which should be expected from any minivan of this class.
It’s also easy to find a comfortable driving position in the Pacifica Hybrid. It boasts highly adjustable front seats and a solid tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel that allows you to customize your driving experience. The sliding rear passenger doors also provide plenty of space for loading kids and child seats.
If you’re considering a minivan, you probably need extra storage space throughout the cabin and cargo area. Luckily, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid features a useful cargo area behind the third seat that measures 32.3 cubic feet. When all rear seats are folded, this space maxes out at 140.5 cubic feet. You’ll also find two sets of LATCH anchors in both back rows for child safety seats.
More than that, the minivan offers an unexpected amount of small-item storage. Enjoy a center console that’s large enough for snacks and water bottles, with enough cup holders for the whole family. From cubbies and magazine slots to random pockets throughout the cabin, this minivan delivers in the storage department.
There are many reasons to love the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, but don’t just take our word for it. Stop by Gupton Motors to experience the minivan for yourself. Once you take a test drive, you’ll be sold!
