A new mobility minivan, the Chrysler Pacifica, has officially been unveiled. The vehicle is so elegant that Car and Driver calls it “one of the best-looking van bodies ever plopped atop four wheels.” BraunAbility has designed conversions for people living with physical disabilities. Features vary somewhat, but here’s a look at what you can expect when you get behind the wheel.
The Pacifica offers power side-entry with in-floor ramp and interchangeable front seats. There is slightly more space than in its Town & Country counterpart. The interior styling is reminiscent of a Chrysler 300 sedan, and the luxurious two-tone leather and wood accents will make both driver and passengers feel pampered. In addition to style, the Pacifica boasts better handling and noise control.
The minivan also comes with great technology, with UConnect, a second-row entertainment system filled with games and perfect for long car rides. Chrysler is also working to make a hands-free door option not just for the rear tailgate, but for the sliding doors on either side available as well. Now caregivers and wheelchair users can operate the door/ramp/kneel system entirely by passing a foot (or footrest) beneath the frame of the van. And for anyone wanting to extend that new car look as long as possible, the Pacifica comes with a Stow n Vac, making quick clean-ups convenient and easy. A panoramic sunroof and rear park assist with stop technology are the cherries on top of the cake.
Bussani Mobility will start taking advance orders for the Chrysler Pacifica this month.
