The award-winning Chrysler Pacifica Plugin Hybrid minivan is sure to turn heads and attract even more attention courtesy of the newly available S Appearance Package. Featuring black accents inside and out, the S Appearance Package has been wildly successful on Pacifica gas models. For 2019, the sporty, custom look is now available on all Pacifica Hybrid models.

Yet Safety!!!

As Car and Driver reported, “Acing its crash worthiness testing would be enough, but the Pacifica adds to its safety standing by offering every conceivable active safety feature available today, and some are newly standard for 2018.”

The Chrysler Pacifica plugin hybrid is the most awarded minivan for a reason. It reinvented the minivan segment with an unprecedented level of functionality, versatility, technology and bold styling. Here’s the only problem. It was not including safety. Why? I was in a full all out accident in this vehicle.

In fact, it totaled in the crash.

Had it not been one of the safest minivans first, I wouldn’t be typing this review.

Yes. This is extremely hard to write.

It begins to bring tears to my eyes. If every part didn’t keep to a certain standard that kept it sound and I walked away. I mean I was a few days out of it. A mild concussion. But was I damaged? no. Was the concussion long-lasting. No.

Most importantly which I’m also grateful is Chrysler were nothing but the professional. First class. AMERICAN class frankly. I was and am Still brought smiles and tears every time I see this Plugin Hybrid on the road.
In conclusion, the Pacifica Hybrid takes this revolutionary vehicle a step further. With its class-exclusive, innovative plug-in hybrid powertrain. It’s the first electrified vehicle in the minivan segment and achieves 84 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in electric-only mode, 33 miles of all-electric range and 566 miles of total range. Finally and most noteworthy, with more than 100 available safety and security features it saved my life. The Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment system and a full array of comfort and convenience technologies. The Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid are no-compromise minivans ideally suited for today’s families.
