Chrysler has revealed the variants as well as pricing of its upcoming 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid that will go on sale soon.
The all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid will be available in two variations based on the features that will be available as standard – Premium and Platinum. The new Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the first plug-in hybrid in the minivan segment and has been tagged with a starting price of $41,995 U.S. The price is Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) but considering that there is a federal tax credit of $7,500 on hybrid vehicles, the cost of the hybrid minivan will be below $35,000. Another thing that is noteworthy is that the state and local credits haven’t been counted and this effectively means that the cost of ownership could go lower.
Chrysler has revealed that the two new Pacafica hybrids bring with them quite a few new features as well as the features that you find in gasoline-powered Pacifica, including tri-pane panoramic sunroof, 10-inch seatback touchscreens, ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist, 360-degree Surround View camera, ventilated seats, rotary e-shifter, capless fuel filler, handsfree sliding doors and liftgate and KeySense programmable key fob.
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Premium packs features such as perforated leather seats, heated first-row seats, remote start with cabin pre-conditioning, three-zone automatic temperature control, projector headlamps, fog lamps, chrome trim accents and power liftgate.
Some other standard features include ParkSense rear park assist with stop, Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection, Active Noise Cancellation, LED signature lighting, six-speaker audio system, SiriusXM satellite radio with 1-year trial, 17-inch aluminum wheels, ParkView rear backup camera and passive entry on all doors.
The Pacifica Hybrid Premium also includes as standard a 7-inch full color driver information display (DID), unique to the Pacifica Hybrid models. The customizable cluster’s display changes color to indicate whether the Pacifica Hybrid is operating in electric mode (teal) or hybrid mode (blue), while both the battery level and fuel level are always displayed. One of the available cluster displays is the “efficiency coach,” which guides owners to drive more efficiently and maximize the time spent in battery mode.
Also standard on the Pacifica Hybrid Premium is the Uconnect 8.4 system, which includes an 8.4-inch touchscreen, available Uconnect Navigation and Uconnect Access connected services. The Pacifica Hybrid also includes the all-new Hybrid Electric Pages, providing owners with helpful vehicle information, including access to the vehicle’s charging schedule and a summary of miles driven in both electric and hybrid modes. The all-new Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Premium has a starting U.S. MSRP of $41,995 (plus $1,095 destination).
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Platinum comes with all the features of the Premium model and on top of that includes Nappa leather seats, ventilated first-row seats, heated two-tone steering wheel, 13-speaker Alpine premium sound system, 3-D navigation, handsfree sliding doors and liftgate and 18-inch aluminum wheels.
Packed with content inside and out, the Pacifica Hybrid Platinum also includes the best-in-class Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment system and KeySense programmable key fob to promote safe driving habits.

The available tri-pane panoramic sunroof adds to the feeling of spaciousness with a dual-pane panoramic sunroof over the front- and second-row seats and a fixed glass pane over the third row. The all-new Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Platinum has a U.S. MSRP of $44,995 (plus $1,095 destination).
