The Chrysler Pacifica Named Most Fuel-Efficient Minivan of All Time! The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid 84-MPGe fuel economy rating has exceeded initial program targets in electric-only mode, setting a new benchmark for minivans and blowing all competition out of the water. The combined city and highway-cycle performance in electric-only mode has been tested by the EPA and represents the distance the Pacifica can travel using a quantity of fuel with the same energy content as a gallon of gasoline. Tim Kuniskis, FCA US LLC Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and Fiat, said about the rating, “At 84 MPGe, the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid surpasses our initially stated performance. These EPA test results paint a clear picture of the benefits our customers can expect from driving the most fuel-efficient minivan ever.”
The EPA found the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid excelled on two other fronts including a total driving range rating of 566 miles (up from 530) and set the electric-only range rating at 33 miles (up from 30). The amazing stats has allowed the EPA to give the Chrysler Pacific a 10 rating in its Green Vehicle Guide, which is based on vehicle performance, fuel economy, and greenhouse-gas emissions. This honor marks the first time a minivan has achieved a 10 in the category, cementing the Chrysler Pacifica as the most fuel-efficient minivan of all time. The EPA estimates the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid’s annual fuel cost, gas and electricity combined would cost around $900.
