2018 Chrysler Pacifica: What's New

2018 Chrysler Pacifica
Vehicle Overview 

What it is: New last year, the larger, lower and wider Chrysler Pacifica minivan replaced the long-running Town & Country. Built on an all-new platform, the Pacifica's sleek styling brings in elements of the rest of the brand's lineup. It's also available in plug-in hybrid form and is Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle of any kind. If the name sounds familiar, it should because Chrysler made a Pacifica crossover SUV in the 2000s.

Featuring a plug-in hybrid drivetrain, the minivan can travel up to 33 miles on electric power alone.
