Its remarkable fuel efficiency, boasting an impressive 84 MPGe (Miles Per Gallon Equivalent), sets the Pacifica Hybrid apart. It can travel further using less fuel, resulting in fewer emissions and a cleaner environment. With a 33-mile all-electric driving range, it’s not just reducing our reliance on traditional fuels but also leveraging cleaner energy sources, like the increasingly greener U.S. power grid. This forward-thinking approach earned the Pacifica Hybrid Best Environmental Performance award from ASG.

But it’s not just about numbers; it’s about making a real impact. Compared to the average vehicle in its segment, the Pacifica Hybrid slashes CO2 emissions by 34% over its first 6.5 years of life. That’s a significant reduction, contributing positively to our planet’s health. Even when stacked against all 823 minivans, crossovers, and SUVs assessed in ASG’s study, the Pacifica Hybrid maintains its environmental superiority, boasting a carbon footprint that’s 24% smaller than the average large vehicle available in North America in 2018.

However, it’s not just about being green; it’s also about delivering exceptional value and performance. For the second consecutive year, the Pacifica Hybrid clinched the title of Best All-around Performance in its class, according to ASG’s rigorous analysis. This means it’s not only environmentally friendly but also a top performer in terms of functionality, reliability, and overall satisfaction.

ASG’s evaluation goes beyond mere specs. Their comprehensive life-cycle assessment considers everything from raw material extraction and vehicle production to each vehicle’s operational life. ASG provides a holistic view of a vehicle’s impact and value by analyzing environmental, social, and economic performance indicators. And in this regard, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid shines brightly.
