Toy Story 4 is just around the corner and Chrysler has partnered with the film to promote it and both the Pacific and Pacifica Hybrid.
The 30-second ad spot stars all the iconic characters from the Toy Story series, including Sheriff Woody and Buzz Lightyear. While crossover advertisements between films and cars can often come off as quite clunky, this one works quite well.
The commercial shows the characters from Toy Story 4 having a little dance party while in the back of the Chrysler, complete with music and lights. At the same time, many of the key interior features of the minivans are promoted, including the built-in Stow ‘n Vac vacuum cleaner, the two large screens behind the front seat headrests, and the second-row seats which can be seamlessly stowed under the floor at the press of a button.
While many new car buyers are leaning towards crossovers and SUVs, particularly those with families, both the Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid have a lot of things going for them.
For example, the Pacifica Hybrid is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine paired to two electric motors and a CVT transmission. The vehicle offers an all-electric range of 33 miles (53 km) and an EPA fuel economy rating of 84 MPGe. Making the Pacifica Hybrid all the more attractive to buyers is the fact that it can cost roughly the same as the non-hybrid version when you factor in the $7500 federal tax incentive for electric vehicles and hybrids.
