The Chrysler Pacifica made a bold first impression last year when replacing the Town & Country, winning numerous awards and offering a vast feature lineup. The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica adds a lot more improvements, so you and your entire family will feel right at home in your minivan in the Westchester NY and Fairfield County CT area.
But before we begin, we want to let you know about the model name additions and changes. The 2 new entry-level trims are the Chrysler Pacifica L and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Touring Plus. All other gasoline-powered models retain the same name, while the Hybrid Premium is now the Hybrid Touring L and the Platinum has switched to the Hybrid Limited.
With that clarification, let’s take a look at what’s new for 2018.
AT&T 4G LTE Wi-Fi with Unlimited Data
We know that families live on their devices, whether it’s a smartphone for streaming music in the car, a tablet for watching videos & playing games or a laptop for business. With 4G LTE WiFi, you can access the Internet without having to use up your data plan.
Speaking of plans, here are the ones available from AT&T:
- $20 per month: standalone unlimited data plan
- $10 per month: add your vehicle to your existing Mobile Share Value or Advantage plan & get 1 GB of data
- $5 per day: day pass offering 250 MB
