Fiat-Chrysler introduced a very important new product during the 2016 North American International Auto Show. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica ditches the Town & Country nameplate, and adds a hybrid model with an estimated 80 MPGe, the industry’s first hybrid minivan.
Although we don’t expect General Motors to rejoin the minivan segment any time soon, today’s community question is in response to the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivan: should GM build a hybrid crossover to match FCA?
It doesn’t seem far fetched for Chevrolet to offer up a hybrid variant of Equinox or Traverse to take on the 2017 Pacifica and its 80 MPGe estimation. But, we’ve heard no plans of such a vehicle coming to life thus far. We suppose anything is possible with an all-new 2017 Equinox and Traverse coming soon, however.
In the end, we don’t think it would hurt, but it may be a little something extra to steer consumers out of a Pacifica, and into a Chevrolet crossover of sorts.
