The Chrysler Pacifica is designed to make lives easier. So, imagine how much easier life would be if it was fully autonomous. Well, that may not be too far off. In fact, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the Google Self-Driving Project recently announced that it is partnering to co-develop a fleet of self-driving Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans.

"The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans will be used later this year for Google’s self-driving testing, more than doubling Google’s current fleet of self-driving test vehicles," announced FCA in a press release. "Engineering responsibilities will be shared based on each company’s respective expertise. FCA will initially design and engineer around 100 vehicles uniquely built for Google’s self-driving technology. Google will integrate the suite of sensors and computers that the vehicles will rely on to navigate roads autonomously."

Unfortunately, the current plans merely involve testing. On the bright side, we have the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivan available in our showroom just in time for Father's Day. Come visit us at 3301 East End Drive Humboldt, TN 38343 for a test drive.
