2024 Chrysler Pacifica Marks 40 Years of Minivan Heritage

The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is a significant milestone in the brand’s electrification evolution as it aims to have an all-electric lineup by 2028. To celebrate 40 years since the introduction of the minivan segment, Chrysler (now part of the Stellantis Group) has commenced production of the 2024 Chrysler Pacifica at its assembly plant in Windsor, Ontario.

The Chrysler Pacifica, particularly the hybrid model, has had a successful run since its launch in 2017. Recently, the 100,000th Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid rolled off the assembly line, a remarkable achievement considering the decline in the Canadian minivan segment. Despite a 42% decrease in minivan sales in 2022 compared to the previous year, the Pacifica continues to lead the way with innovative features like Stow ‘n Go and dual hands-free sliding doors.

The Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid holds the distinction of being the first electrified minivan and remains the only plug-in hybrid in its segment. It also qualifies for electric vehicle rebates. As part of their commitment to evolving technologies and features, Stellantis aims to have a fully electric lineup by 2028.

The 2024 Chrysler Pacifica introduces some changes to its model lineup. The Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid is now available in two variants: the Select and Pinnacle. Customers who choose the Select models can further personalize their vehicles with optional appearance packages. Additionally, the premium Pacifica Pinnacle model offers a new Sepia interior color, along with two new exterior colors: Red Hot and Baltic Gray.

Both the 2024 Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid come equipped with an Emergency Vehicle Alert System (EVAS), which provides in-vehicle notifications of nearby emergency vehicles or road hazards.

The new models are expected to arrive at dealerships in October 2023.
