Powertrains and Efficiency

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica moves like an athlete; Indian Head and Melville drivers who have taken one out for a test drive have been stunned by its crisp, tight driving dynamics and exceptional acceleration. Eight-passenger potential has never been so light on its feet.

That’s largely down to the 3.6L V6 Pentastar engine, which is able to deliver up to 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque through a Class-Exclusive 9-speed automatic transmission system. Multiple gear maps mean that you’ll earn up to 12.9 L/100 km in the city and 8.4 on the highway, and shifts are made lightning fast to ensure that you’ll never notice even the briefest drop in power.

To take ultra-efficient family driving one step further, upcoming Pacifica models will boast a hybrid option that marries the V6 powerhouse to a Single Input – Electrically Variable Transmission (SI-EVT) system and dual electric drive motors, allowing drivers to travel up to 48 kilometres on electric power alone.
