Safety and technology
You can expect both great gas mileage and a safe journey in the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.

The Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen integrates with these safety systems as well as other entertainment features and navigation information. In the back seat, the kids will enjoy the head rest screens that provide fun and games during those long hauls.
Fuel efficiency and performance
The 2017 Pacifica Hybrid has a 3.6-liter V6 eHybrid engine under the hood that is mated to an eFlite EVT transmission. This combination allows the Pacifica to reach an impressive 84 MPGe when using both electricity and gas.* Total driving range maxes out at 556 miles while the electric driving range sits comfortably at 33 miles. The hybrid engine doesn’t mean there’s a lack of power, though. The Pacifica Hybrid can reach 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. To give you even more of an incentive to go green, you may qualify for a tax credit of up to $7,500 when you purchase the Pacifica Hybrid. Be sure to consult a tax professional for details and eligibility requirements.
Technology isn’t the only impressive feature inside the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. The interior is as comfortable as it is smart. Three-zone auto control air conditioning, interior door handle LED lamps, third-row, fold-in-floor seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel all come standard on the Pacifica Hybrid. Upgrade to the Platinum trim to receive ventilated front seats and Premium Nappa leather-trimmed bucket seats. The most practical feature available on the Pacifica is the Stow ‘n Vac™ vacuum, which is the most powerful in the minivan segment.
As America’s first hybrid minivan, you can expect great things from this vehicle. From the intuitive safety systems to the extended driving range, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid has it all.
