2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid at Reedman Dodge Chrysler Jeep of Springfield

This is a great vehicle to consider, especially due to the fact that it has over 100 possible safety and security features, the Uconnect Theater rear-seat entertainment system, cutting-edge fuel economy technology, and was designed with the comfort of many passengers in mind. Plus, it's America's first-ever hybrid minivan! Zippy acceleration complements both an intuitive handling and a plush interior that does not relay bumpy roads to the interior. A 20-speaker Harman Kardon deluxe audio system is standard on Hybrid Limited, while on that same trim a Deep Mocha interior becomes available, among other new-for-2018 features. The overall Hybrid model lineup now parallels the gas-only Pacifica versions and adds the Touring Plus model specifically to accomplish this. Drivers can also use their phone with an app to look at their 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid's driving history report, its charging progress, and even find a charging station! Let's continue exploring this wonder of the future, today, in this detailed discussion below.

What makes the Hybrid version work, essentially?

Front-wheel drive is standard in the Pacifica Hybrid and all trims use a more-than-capable 3.6L PENTASTAR V-­6 eHybrid engine partnered up to an EFLITE electrically variable transmission that directs the powertrain's overall horsepower and torque. The 2018 Pacifica Hybrid gets in the game by combining tech judiciously, making sure there is plenty of power when needed and no excess when it is not. It does this via mixing together and then conducting the engine, 2 electric motors, and the automatic transmission into a sublime synchronicity. The electric motors get the wheels instant torque from a standstill, while the V-6 kicks in at higher speeds. Building on that, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid utilizes 4-wheel anti-lock brakes and manages to make them feel as if they are the brakes on a gas-only vehicle, no small feat. The Pacifica Hybrid, solely on electric power, can achieve up to 33 miles of range itself, and while running on both gas and electric simultaneously, it attains 84 MPGe combined (the 'e' stands for 'equivalent'). It has a total driving range of up to 566 miles on all systems before needing to refuel all supplies. Fourteen hours will charge the Pacifica Hybrid's batteries on a 120-volt outlet with the standard charger, while a 2-hour charge is possible with a level 2 charger (uses a 240-volt outlet). Either way, it works very well for most users, as they can charge it overnight very easily while they sleep yet are not forced to do so, as they can get the alternate charger if needed. The Hybrid gets a Heavy-Duty suspension, Tip Start, premium fog lamps, and 17-inch BSW all-season tires all as standard as well.

What are the general things to look for in a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid?

The 2018 Pacifica Hybrid can seat seven passengers at maximum with excellent headroom for all. The 2nd-row seats can slide forward to allow easier access to the rear seats after entering in the large power-sliding doors. A power-adjustable driver's seat is standard, and there are available features to look for such as a power liftgate, heated and ventilated front seats, a wireless charging pad, leather upholstery (cloth is standard), and a power-adjustable passenger seat. The 2018 model has up to 140.5 cubic feet of cargo room, which is the same as the gas-version, a rare parallel in the hybrid class. All Pacifica Hybrid trims have the Uconnect infotainment system, which includes satellite radio (SiriusXM Radio), an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Android Auto & Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, and HD Radio. With user-friendly menus and snappy response times, Uconnect is a proven standout in the current crop of vehicle access systems, and gets control over to the center touchscreen for handy apps like navigation and music! Most Hybrids will come with a standard of six speakers and Active Noise Cancellation, but obtainable as well is a 13-speaker Alpine system (or the 20-speaker Harmon Kardon previously mentioned). A notable item to equip the Pacifica Hybrid with if you go on long trips often is the Uconnect Theater entertainment system, as it contains a 7" full-color driver information display, wireless streaming, Uconnect Access, a Blu-ray player, dual HDMI inputs, wireless 3-channel headphones, Bluetooth touchpad remotes, downloadable games/apps, all usable on its dual 10.1" HD seatback touchscreens!
