BraunAbility has been working with Chrysler to make the Chrysler Pacifica one of the most accessible vehicles on the market.
A new blog post on FCA’s website tells the story of Cheryl Angelelli. When she was 14 years old, she wanted to become an Olympic swimmer. While she was practicing a new racing dive, she broke her neck. Since then, she has gone on to win four swimming medals and has competed in three Paralympics.
She was at the Chicago Auto Show as a spokesperson for BraunAbility when they showed off the BraunAbility Chrysler Pacifica for the first time.
“I lead a very full and active life, and a big part of what makes that possible, is my adapted vehicle.”
The BraunAbility Chrysler Pacifica features AccessAbility technology that has the industry’s widest side-entry ramp. The Pacifica provides additional space that provides obstruction-free maneuverability for all sizes and types of wheelchairs in the cabin with by having rear-axle space innovation.

One of the key selling points of the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is its environmental impact. The move to green for many a car is big with numerous car buyers. Hybrids especially strive to be as green as they possibly can. How green is the Pacifica Hybrid?
In comparison to the previous-generation of the gas-powered Chrysler minivan, it is 31 percent greener. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the most efficient minivan of all time.
The number was reached by the engineers at FCA US using industry-standard software. They were able to calculate the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of the Pacifica Hybrid. The software took into account the environmental impact of fuel production and delivery, as well as the vehicle’s fuel consumption. All of this was based on 120,000 miles of operation. The total reduction the Pacifica Hybrid recorded was 21-metric-tonne in CO2e GHG emissions.
In comparison, the amount of reduction the Pacifica Hybrid had was the average annual CO2 output of 22 American households or 14 commercial flights from Detroit to Los Angeles.
The Pacifica Hybrid is the most-fuel efficient minivan ever. It has an EPA fuel-economy rating of 84 MPGe. These findings show that the Pacifica Hybrid is truly one of the greenest options out there buyers.
