The Chrysler Pacifica minivan is a favorite among families. Similarly, the rumored Pacifica crossover is sure to meet the needs of both families and drivers on the go. We introduce you to the possible 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Crossover. This is what we can expect from this new Chrysler design.
Similar Drive Power
Because the Chrysler Pacifica and the Pacifica crossover will likely share a platform, the drive power would be the same. This means that the crossover would have a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 287 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque power. Similar to the crossover, there would also be a plug-in hybrid option available.
Convenient Interior Space
Minivans are known for their abundance of space. The Pacifica crossover would feature a few less feet of interior space, but the layout is likely to still meet the needs of both families and drivers with a lot of cargo. The CEO of Chrysler recently revealed that Chrysler already has a three-row crossover built on the Pacifica frame ready for production.
The fact that the crossover will be built on the roomy Pacifica platform means it will offer plenty of space. The convenient layout of the Pacifica frame would make the crossover a big competitor among other SUVs brands. It would give drivers a more stylish SUV that also has ample cargo space and a comfortable interior cabin.
More and more car manufacturers are moving to environmentally friendly production processes. Additionally, many have already released hybrid plug-in vehicles. Currently, these cars often come with minimal space or a high price tag. Many believe that the Chrysler Pacifica could bridge that gap. If a plug-in Pacifica crossover is released, drivers would have a family designed, environmentally-friendly, and affordable car option.
Although Chrysler continues to make high quality, affordable, and useful cars, they have been lacking in designs in the SUV market. Crossovers have been a popular choice for many years now, and with the new Chrysler Pacifica’s many advantages, this crossover could give Chrysler the boost they need.
Additionally, it doesn’t seem like this trend is going anywhere anytime soon. Although families once had to switch to a minivan to meet growing family demands, the SUV serves the same family purpose but with added luxury and style.
Expected Release Date
In most cases, when a company releases plans for a new vehicle we have to wait many years for the release. This will likely not be the case with the Pacifica crossover. Chrysler has already been working on this highly anticipated car for years. We can expect a perfected version to be released in as little as 18 months. Many Chrysler Pacifica enthusiasts are patiently waiting for the new model.
The possibility of a Pacifica crossover has many minivan drivers excited. It would place Chrysler back in the competitive market of SUVs and give drivers a stylish and functional choice.
