The Chrysler Pacifica is changing the minivan market in a very good way. First it was through its many, innovative details that make it more accommodating than ever to families. These include a roomier cabin, tucked-away storage, and features like an in-van vacuum cleaner and easy-access seating that anticipate family activity.
But now this van is taking it to a whole new level of adaptability with the new BraunAbility Chrysler Pacifica. This new upfitted option made its debut at this year’s Chicago Auto Show, and allows wheelchair users to board and ride this thoughtful minivan with a greater level of ease. The BraunAbility Pacifica features the widest side entry ramp in the industry, and has been engineered with other tools like a sliding door extension for easy use. The BraunAbility edition is also built with an expanded cabin space so that it can accommodate wheelchairs of all sizes.
The BraunAbility Pacifica is one of 25 vehicles eligible for Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s Automobility program. The program provides up to $1,000 of financial assistance to those upgrading to one of the eligible vehicles with adaptive equipment such as the BraunAbility upfit.
The BraunAbility Pacifica is expected to be available this spring at Chrysler dealerships like Roger Williams CDJR. In the meantime, pay a visit to the FCA Automobility website to learn more about the program and the equipment that can help bring more mobility and independence to wheelchair users.
