Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: First electrified minivan

The Chrysler Pacifica is uniquely positioned. It's the only electric minivan available. As a hybrid, the Pacifica is offered in Touring Plus, Touring L, and Limited trims. All are equipped with a 3.6-liter V-6 eHybrid matched to the dual-motor eFlite electrically variable transmission (EVT) to produce a combined 260 horsepower. The top-line Limited trim has a starting MSRP of $45,545. Geared for the economically minded, the seven-seat Pacific Hybrid has a 32-mile range with its 16-kWh lithium-ion battery and offers an impressive 520-mile gas/electric range. The EPA city/highway combined fuel economy ratings are 32 miles per gallon and 84 eMPG. Chrysler reports that the Pacifica Hybrid is the first electrified vehicle in the minivan segment, and has an all-electric range of more than 30 miles. The Hybrid trim is also the most expensive Pacifica, but its price isn't based solely on its electric elements. It features all of the non-hybrid equipment and a healthy offering of comfort and technology upgrades as both standard and optional features. Heated and ventilated front-row seats and USB ports in both rows are additions. Also optional only on the hybrid trim is the Advanced SafetyTec Group. Lane departure mitigation, parallel and perpendicular parking assist forward parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, and a 360-degree camera are all worthy. Minivans were once only family-oriented. It didn't make sense for a single driver or small family to own one of the large vehicles. But the Pacifica is among the few options that change the logic. From acceleration to braking, steering to road feel, comfort to versatile interior space, and gas mileage to maneuverability, the...

2019 Nissan Maxima: Enduring sedan mixes tradition with sportiness

Nearly 40 years after its debut via the long gone defunct manufacturer Datsun, the Nissan Maxima has endured an influx of rivals and remains a solid large sedan choice. But there's a catch: sales are suffering. The Maxima peaked in 2005 with more than 75,000 units sold. Last year, the numbers slipped to just over 42,000. Intense competition from ever-increasing SUVs sales mean the market share for large sedans is shrinking while diverse options abound. For 2019, Nissan makes it simple, at least in one respect: The Maxima is available with one engine option, a 3.5-liter V-6 with 300 horsepower. It's propelled by a continuously variable automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. The Maxima is available in S, SV, SL, SR, and Platinum trims, with the mid-level SL option my review vehicle. For 2019, this current eighth generation Maxima's exterior is more modern and a few additional safety vehicles are available. All trim levels include a healthy offering of standard features, including 18-inch wheels, LED headlights and daytime running lights, foglights, remote engine start, keyless entry and ignition, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Adjustable driving modes, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable front seats, a 60/40-split rear seat, a navigation system, an 8-inch touchscreen, two USB ports, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration are standard on upper trims. An eight-speaker audio system with satellite radio is also in the mix. Standard safety systems include a rearview camera and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. The SL trim features equipment from the SV trim, including navigation, adaptive cruise control,...

BMW launches first-ever X7

BMW enters the full-size SUV arena with two models of their first-ever X7. Both X7s provide three rows of seating for up to seven passengers to travel in total comfort. Overview The two versions are the X7 xDrive40i powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six-cylinder and the X7 xDrive50i with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8. Both engines are coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission gearing power to all four wheels via BMW's xDrive four-wheel-drive system. The BMW xDrive50i's sporty V-8 cranks out 456 horsepower along with 479 lb.-ft. of torque, and clicks off a 0-to-60-mph time of 5.2 seconds. Both X7s are tow rated up to 7,500 pounds with the optional trailer hitch. The X7 50i xDrive rides on a full air suspension capable of lowering the vehicle for ease of loading passengers and cargo. Dynamic dampers allow dialing in either a softer or firmer ride. The X7 may be ordered with a system tying the air suspension into forward-looking cameras that monitor the road ahead to adjust suspension parameters to prepare for impending road imperfections. The system pairs with a package that includes active rear-wheel steering and brakes tuned by BMW's M division. For V-8-powered models, the package also adds a sport rear differential. An off-road package is also available. Tested My BMW X7 xDrive test vehicle was the 50i V-8 with a base price set at $92,600. In terms of its exterior design, the BMW X7 does little to step outside the SUV norm, which is just fine for BMW's first foray into the realm of three-row SUVs. The styling is clean and simple, leading off with a bold enlarged twin grille dominating the nose along with large lower and side air intakes. The front and rear overhangs are abbreviated and...
