2017 Minivan Shopping Guide

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
The Pacifica Hybrid’s electric power comes from a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery pack stored under the second-row floor. Passenger and cargo capacity are not affected by the battery pack thanks to the underfloor storage. Third row Stow ‘n Go seat storage remains, but the second-row Stow ‘n Go capability gets lost to the battery pack, although second-row seats can be removed to create a flat load floor. New technology includes a smartphone app that allows the driver to check charge status, schedule charging and find charge station locations. Standard Hybrid Electric Pages include power flow illustration, driving history and charge scheduling. The Pacifica Hybrid regenerative braking system collects energy to charge the lithium-ion battery and provide additional range.
