Chrysler is set to kick off the upcoming year on a high note, marking the 40th anniversary of the minivan – a segment pioneered by the original Chrysler Corporation. The celebration begins with the introduction of the 2024 Chrysler Pacifica.
It all started on November 2nd, 1983, when the Plymouth Voyager rolled off the line at the Windsor Assembly plant in Ontario, Canada, ushering in the very first generation of minivans. This historic moment paved the way for a remarkable legacy, with over 15 million Chrysler minivans, now under the banner of Stellantis, hitting the roads. Throughout this journey, Chrysler has remained at the forefront of its segment, continuously evolving and innovating.
For the eagerly anticipated 2024 model, the Pacifica lineup undergoes a series of enhancements. Notably, the Premium Pacifica Pinnacle model boasts a captivating Sepia interior paint job, while two additional exterior colors, Red Hot and Baltic Grey, add to the array of options.
In a nod to environmental consciousness, the Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid lineup expands to include two models: the Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid Select and Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid Pinnacle.
What sets the 2024 Pacifica apart is the inclusion of the EVAS package within the Uconnect 5 platform. This advanced technology provides crucial notifications about nearby emergency vehicles and other road hazards directly through the cluster and touchscreen interface.
Celebrating a significant milestone, Chrysler recently marked the production of its 100,000th Chrysler Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid, solidifying its position as the sole plug-in hybrid vehicle in its segment. This achievement reflects Chrysler's commitment to progress toward an electrified future.
With October just around the corner, both the Chrysler Pacifica and the 2024 Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid are gearing up to make their way to dealerships. Chrysler's journey from its humble beginnings to the latest Chrysler model is a testament to 40 years of remarkable evolution, a transformation that is vividly evident today.
