Range Battle: 2021 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid vs Toyota Prius Prime in SK

June 2,2022

Do you want to purchase an eco-friendly ride but are nervous about the driving range? Then you need to set your sights on the new 2021 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. With the ability to travel further than any other model in its class, vehicles like the Toyota Prius Prime simply cannot compete.   To start, the 2021 Toyota Prius Prime uses a 1.8-litre gasoline four-cylinder engine coupled with a plug-in hybrid system. Delivering 121 hp, it has an EV-only range of 40 km (25 miles). Manufactured in three trim levels - the LE, XLE, and Limited - there aren't many options with this lineup.   On the other hand, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is moved by a much larger 3.6-litre V6 Hybrid motor from Pentastar. Paired with a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery, it generates a staggering 260 hp. That is practically unheard of for this type of minivan. Thanks to the eFlite Electrically Variable Transmission (EVT), the experience from inside the cabin is very smooth, and it can drive on electricity alone for 51 km (32 miles). Perfect for road trips and family vacations, you can go just about anywhere in this transport!   Want to try it out in person? Contact our agents today!
