2023 Chrysler Pacifica / Pacifica Hybrid Fact Sheet

Auburn Hills, Mich. September 1, 2022 - Stellantis and the Chrysler brand continue to lead the minivan segment with the 2023 Chrysler Pacifica. The first minivan to offer both gas and hybrid powertrains and still the only one in the segment to offer a plug-in hybrid, the Pacifica four-model lineup includes the premium people-mover Pinnacle model, which features the most luxurious interior in its class. Pacifica delivers an athletic exterior appearance, available all-wheel-drive (AWD) capability paired with Pacifica’s class-exclusive Stow ‘n Go seating, more standard safety features than any vehicle in the industry, a FamCAM interior camera with a bird's-eye view of rear-facing child-seat occupants, next-generation Uconnect 5 connectivity and loads of comfort, capability and interior storage.

Pacifica Hybrid, the first hybrid minivan, delivers more than 80 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in electric-only mode, an all-electric range of more than 30 miles and a total range of more than 500 miles. Pacifica Hybrid features an innovative dual-motor eFlite electrically variable transmission (EVT) paired with a specially modified version of the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 gasoline engine that alleviates range anxiety and delivers peace of mind. Pacifica Hybrid offers a seamless driving experience, with no need for the driver to select between electric and hybrid modes.

Chrysler Pacifica continues to hold its status as the most awarded minivan six years in a row with more than 170 honors and industry accolades. As the first to introduce the minivan and through six generations of the vehicle, the Chrysler brand has innovated 117 minivan firsts, including nearly 40 minivan-first features on the Pacifica. The company has sold more than 15 million minivans globally since 1983, twice as many as any other manufacturer in the past 37 years.
