2018 Chrysler Pacifica S - Ultimate In-Depth Look in 4K
The creators of Chrysler Pacifica dubbed their offspring Sport Tourer: loosely translated - "sports and tourist vehicle." And the car is 100% consistent with this name. Going on a trip on it is a sweet affair!
It is noteworthy that a model completely identical to the concept went to the conveyor, which happens very rarely. Mass production was started a year later, in January 2003, at a plant in Windsor (Ontario). To launch a new model, the company invested almost $ 460 million.
The car has a fairly European appearance, unlike other Chrysler cars. This is quite logical, because the design of the exterior was attended by the designers of the company Mercedes, as it is known now it is a single concern Daimler-Chrysler.
In the cabin there are three rows of seats, two in each, for six passengers, an interesting innovation that Chrysler is proud of. Landing is very convenient. Seats in the second row are no less comfortable than in the first. And so rather big interior seems even more because of the abundance of light - the roof of the Pacifica is almost completely glass.
Under the hood, the Pacifica has a 24-valve V6 engine with a 3.5-liter capacity and 250 horsepower, which is paired with an automatic transmission AutoStick with the possibility of sequential switching. Both that, and another is borrowed from a sedan Chrysler 300M. Pedal knot adjustable. Independent suspension self-leveling, front multi-link, rear - MacPherson. Wheels 255 / 50R19.
The versatile design of the Pacifica chassis allows you to equip it with both anterior and all-wheel drive transmission. In the latter case, the buyer will receive a comfortable six-seater car, equipped with a full set of airbags (including side curtains for three rows of seats and an airbag, protecting the driver’s feet), a sound system with a CD player, cruise control and light alloy wheels.
It is also worth noting that Chrysler Pacifica comes with a braking system with four ventilated disc brakes and an anti-lock system, a tire pressure monitoring system, and much more.
