* New front-wheel drive 2006 Chrysler Pacifica Limited option lands in showrooms this spring
* Each wave of Chrysler Pacifica models now offer front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive configurations
Auburn Hills, Mich., Jan 30, 2006 –
Chrysler Group is expanding the 2006 Chrysler Pacifica lineup, adding another option for crossover customers. The newest choice to roll ashore is the Chrysler Pacifica Limited model with front-wheel drive. It lands at dealer showrooms this March.
“The addition of the Chrysler Pacifica Limited with front-wheel drive offers consumers more choices,” said Ann Fandozzi, Director, Chrysler Marketing and Product Planning. “Some of our customers have told us they wanted the top-of-the-line Chrysler Pacifica Limited, but didn’t have a need for all-wheel drive. The new front-wheel-drive option on the Chrysler Pacifica Limited model fills that niche.”
The U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the Chrysler Pacifica Limited with front-wheel drive is $34,810 (excluding $730 destination fee).
The Chrysler Pacifica has received the U.S. government’s highest crash test rating of five stars for frontal and side impacts (when equipped with supplemental three-row side curtain air bags), and the highest rating among vehicles tested in its class for rollover (four stars).
With an entry-level five passenger Chrysler Pacifica model, a nicely equipped six-passenger Touring model and a top-of-the-line Limited model, the Chrysler Pacifica offers the best features of an SUV, car and minivan all rolled into one stylish vehicle.
