2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Limited with an amazing 520 Mile Drive Range
The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid achieves a very successful fuel efficiency of more than 80 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in electric-only mode. The Pacifica also has an all-electric range of more than 30 miles. The total range with a fuel tank is more than 500 miles per tank, sounds like science fiction, hard to believe but is real. Just fill the thank once and drive the Pacifica minivan for more than 500 miles. That is amazing fuel efficiency and fuel economy.
2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
The Pacifica Hybrid is first and the only hybrid-minivan in the United States, a title that will be hard to keep in the future as hybrid and electric is the new trend in the automotive industry, but for now we say that Chrysler has been a pioneer on hybrid technologies on minivans.
The Pacifica is the number four best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) from around 30 PHEVs available in the market at the present time.
As the Pacifica becomes more popular, the competition is also more aggressive. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid keeps reinventing the minivan segment with new features on technology, safety, and entertainment, most of these features never seen before in a minivan. In addition to features and functionality, the Pacifica has a new style with more external beauty.
2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Limited
I am driving the beautiful Pacifica Hybrid Limited in Florida. The Limited is a great model full of standard features, but you have to pay the price near $50K.
When you drive a 2020 Pacifica you can find more than 100 available safety and security features, the Uconnect Theater rear-seat entertainment system, exclusive Stow ‘n Go seating and storage, available 4G Wi-Fi and more. Just ask for it and you will get it.
The Pacifica has been the most awarded minivan during the last 4 years.
I have tried several minivans during the last years and each minivan has its own pros and cons, but it seems that Chrysler has become the number-one minivan-manufacturer with more than 14.6 million minivans sold around the world during the last 35 years.
The Hybrid Limited includes almost any feature you can dream of standard, front ventilated seats, GPS, wi-fi, 20-Harman Kardon Speakers for premium audio, Pedestrian Warning Speaker, Blind Spot & RR Cross Path Detection and more. The list of standard features is very extensive and all these features included free of charge with your Pacifica Hybrid Limited.
Kids Love it
If you drive with kids as I do with my children and their friends, then the Pacifica will make you the king of the house. My little daughter less than 4 years old still remembers the Pacifica and is asking me often when we will drive it again. Children, teenagers and also adults enjoy so much riding in the second or third row of the Pacifica. They can watch movies, connect to wifi, walk from the 2nd to the 3rd road, stretch their legs and enjoy any ride with more space and entertainment than on any SUV or sedan. You want to bring your kids and their friends? no problem, the Pacifica has seat capacity for 7 passengers, it is like having 2 cars in one.
My experience is that a minivan like the Chrisler Pacifica is the best automobile for long rides. Seats can be reclined, some passengers can listen to music or audio from a movie on their headsets while others can enjoy the audio from speakers. The seats are just so comfortable and there is plenty of space for everyone.
The Pacifica offers class-leading hybrid powertrain with around 40 new minivan-first features. This minivan is revolutionizing this segment. Don’t think of a minivan, think of the Pacifica as the most comfortable car for passengers and with the best fuel efficiency on hybrid technologies.
Best Cargo Space
Cargo space is not limited like with most other 7 passenger automobiles like 3-row SUVs. With a minivan the cargo area is large enough for several suitcases and if you need space for huge items, then just fold the 3rd-row seats. The Pacifica along with many other minivans are great for family holiday vacations where you can bing all the suitcases you want, accessories, toys, sports items and more without limiting the passenger interior space for 7 passengers.
