Many times when a hybrid model is offered as part of a line for a vehicle it’snot offered with as many choices as the gasoline-powered vehicles. Chrysler has tried to make things different when it comes to the Pacifica minivan. As the newest and most advanced minivan on the market, this vehicle is expected to be one that can be enjoyed with a hybrid powertrain that has nearly all the same qualities and features as the gasoline Pacifica models. With this in mind, the Hybrid version now as a new upgrade.
What’s New for the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid?
Chrysler has chosen to offer a special appearance package for the Chrysler Pacifica minivan to give you the opportunity to have a more dramatic look than what you’ve had in the past. This new package is called the S Appearance Package and it was offered for the regular Pacifica from the start but now it will be added to the hybrid model to ensure you can add and enjoy the dramatic look and feel of this amazing model. Even though the Pacifica is a family vehicle, a more engaging appearance never hurts any vehicle.
The S Appearance Package is one that offers you a mean looking upgrade kit to have the look and feel you want when you’re out on the road in the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. This kit consists of a gloss black exterior with accents that match, a black grille surround, black headlight accents, black 18-inch wheels, a black roof rack, and black Chrysler badges. Adding this package to the mix will only increase the price of the Pacifica by $595 which is certainly an affordable price that can be added an not raise the cost of the vehicle by much at all.
Getting More Inside the Pacifica Hybrid
When you open the doors to the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid model that has the S Appearance Package included, you’re going to see some improved qualities. The interior has been upgraded with black seats with light gray accents. These seats also have an ‘S’ logo stitched into them for an added look. Inside you’ll also see piano black steering wheel accents, gray gauge bezels and door trim, a black overhead console, headliner, visors, A-pillar trim, and center console as well. As you can see, the theme of the interior of the Pacifica Hybrid is either black or gray for everything you see.
Other than the new mean and sinister look that’s added, the 2018 version of the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is one that remains unchanged. The power for the drive comes from a 3.6-liter Atkinson cycle V6 engine and a small electric motor with a 16 kWh battery pack to make sure you can have up to 33 miles of electric range. The fuel mileage of the gasoline engine is rated at 32 mpg combined to give you the quality you want that makes this a family hauler with a dark side to it.
