There’s also a plug-in hybrid variant (Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid) featuring two electric motors in combination with the V6 engine engine. The motors are powered by a 16 kWh Lithium-Ion battery and provide a zero-emissions driving range of 30 miles (48 km).
Noteworthy features of the Chrysler Pacifica include LED-accented headlights and tail lights, dual-pane panoramic sunroof and a fixed glass pane over the third row seats, rotary gear selector, Uconnect Theater infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen display and Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment system with two 10-inch HD touchscreen displays.
