Minivan Monday: It’s a kick to get into the Pacifica

Among the nearly 40 minivan innovations in the Chrysler Pacifica are features that will help owners and passengers get into the new minivan when their hands are full of groceries, sports gear or a precious child.

The sliding doors and liftgate on certain models of the minivan can be operated with a simple swipe of the foot underneath the body of the vehicle.

These convenience features – handsfree power sliding door and handsfree foot-activated power liftgate – are offered for the first time on a minivan in the Touring-L Plus and Limited models.

While the door function may seem magical, it’s quite simple. With the vehicle’s key fob nearby, a simple kicking motion under the bumper or sliding door activation zones will open the handsfree liftgate and sliding door.Chrysler Pacifica

The handsfree features are two of the 37 segment firsts in the new Pacifica, and continue Chrysler’s legacy of innovation in the minivan segment. Since FCA US LLC introduced the first minivan in 1984, the company has led the segment with 115 minivan firsts over the six generations of Chrysler minivans.

Hello from the Motor City! I’m Edward Cardenas and I’m multimedia editor for FCA US. As a lifelong Detroiter, I have been surrounded by the automotive industry. I’ve had members of my immediate and extended family work in the industry. I’ve covered it as a journalist and advocated for it as a communications professional. I have also experienced the thrills of the industry while riding in a race car at nearly 200 miles per hour. Having this breadth of experience, I look forward to drawing upon my experiences to bring a wide range of stories, photos and videos about Chrysler, FIAT and Alfa Romeo to FCA Digital Media. When I’m not covering my brands, I’m spending time with my wife and two boys.
