Chrysler Pacifica vs. Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
If you’re looking for a new family car here at Woodhouse Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM Blair, you can’t go wrong with the new 2022 Chrysler Pacifica. This model has brought the minivan back in style, but there’s one big question you need to answer. Do you want the conventional version of this Chrysler minivan or do you want the hybrid?
Let’s help you decide by looking at some of the differences between the base Chrysler Pacifica and its plug-in hybrid version.
One of the big differences between the two models is the price. Green cars tend to be more expensive, and the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is no different. It starts at an MSRP of $46,978, compared to the base model’s MSRP of $37,095.
To be fair though, you do end up saving money on fuel over time. It’s also important to note that the hybrid is not available in the Touring trim level. It starts at the Touring L instead, one trim level up from the base model. So, you’re also getting a lot more features and tech with that bump in price.
Engine and Fuel Economy
The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 287 horsepower. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid also has a V6 engine, but it’s paired with two electric motors and a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery, giving this green minivan an output of 260 horsepower.
Unsurprisingly, that slight difference in power and the electric motors help make the hybrid the more efficient of the two minivans. The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is rated at 84 MPGe combined by the EPA. It can also travel up to 33 miles on electric power alone. The conventional Chrysler Pacifica gets 22 MPG combined with front-wheel drive and 20 MPG combined with all-wheel drive.
