The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica is Car and Driver’s Best Minivan for 2019, and it has more class-leading and class-exclusive features than you can shake a stick at. But you might still have questions about its options or manufacturing.
You have questions. Cooksville Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram has answers. Find out about the Chrysler Pacifica.
Is the Chrysler Pacifica All Wheel Drive?
For 2019, the Chrysler Pacifica is equipped with a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine and a nine-speed transmission. The drivetrain supplies power solely to the front wheels, making it a front-wheel-drive, not all-wheel-drive, vehicle.
If you’re wondering how the Chrysler Pacifica handles slippery or difficult roads, rest easy. All trims are built with 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with Rain Brake Support to prepare your Pacifica for braking in wet weather, as well as Ready Alert Braking to anticipate when full brake application may be required. Not only that, but Chrysler’s Advanced SafetyTec Group is available including Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist and Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking to keep your minivan between the lines.
Does the Chrysler Pacifica Have Stow ‘n Go Seats?
Yes! All 2019 Chrysler Pacifica trim levels include third-row Stow ‘n Go seating and storage system. The 60/40 split-bench folds flat in the floor to make room for larger cargo items. And when the seat is up, you can use it as handy in-floor storage.
For the Touring trim and higher, second-row Stow ‘n Go seats are also included. With in-floor storage and Easy-Tilt for third-row access, the Chrysler Pacifica has extremely flexible configuration options.
How Big is the Chrysler Pacifica Gas Tank?
From Toronto to Quebec City, New York City, or Cincinnati, the Chrysler Pacifica can pull off a whole trip on a single tank of fuel. The gas tank holds 71.9 L and, with its EPA-rated 8.4L/100km fuel economy, it has a range of 855km.
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid has a smaller fuel tank at 62.5 L due to the hybrid system onboard. However, with the boost from its 51km of all-electric range, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid has a range of 835km, all while burning less fuel!
How Does the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Work?
Electricity is stored in the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid’s onboard 16kWh Lithium-ion battery pack. Two electric motors send power to the front wheels through its electrically variable transmission. When the Pacifica Hybrid is running low on battery power, the gas-powered 260hp Pentastar V6 engine kicks in to recharge your battery, propel your vehicle, or both.
How do you Charge a Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid?
There are a few ways to recharge the hybrid battery system.
- Through normal driving, regenerative braking converts wasted energy into electricity to store in the battery, while simultaneously reducing wear on your brakes;
- You can recharge your battery in a variety of locations with normal Level 1 (120-volt) charging; and
- The available Level 2 (240-volt) Mopar charger can top up your battery in as little as two hours.
Where is the Chrysler Pacifica Made?
You can take great pride in buying local with the Chrysler Pacifica minivan. Whether you choose the gas-powered model or the hybrid minivan, it’s assembled at the FCA plant in Windsor, Ontario.
