2020 Chrysler* Pacifica* Oil Type

When you want to upgrade to greater protection and performance for your minivan, AMSOIL’S SS 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil (5 quarts with oil filter) is the right 2020 Chrysler* Pacifica* oil type choice for you to make. The cornerstone of this exceptional motor oil is a proprietary blend of 100% synthetic base stock oils, all of which have consistent molecular structures. Furthermore, metal-to-metal contact zones are protected from wear by powerful anti wear additives, extending the engine’s service life. Owing to the specific combination of the highest quality 100% synthetic base stock oils and their unique polar properties, a strong fluid layer is present that keeps metal surfaces apart.

To complement your switch to AMSOIL’s top-tier synthetic 5W-30, we recommend their superior #EA15K19-EA Oil Filter. This high-performance oil filter has more filtering capacity, can hold more oil, and may help your engine last longer.

The Chrysler* Pacifica* is a front-wheel-drive minivan that can be configured to have either seven or eight seats, based on how the interior is laid out.

The Chrysler* Pacifica* is offered in two trim levels, each powered by a 3.6-liter V6 gas engine. Differentiating the hybrid model from the traditional one are a few important distinctions. The base Pacifica*’s gas-powered engine generates 287 horsepower and 262 foot-pounds of torque. The powertrain in this Pacifica* is matched to a 9-speed automatic gearbox, allowing for quicker acceleration and finer tuning of the minivan’s handling.

The gas powered motor in the Chrysler* Pacifica* Hybrid has a 3.6-liter V6 displacement, and it collaborates with a pair of twin electric motors, one for each axle, to provide propulsion for the vehicle. The lithium-ion battery that powers them supplies 360 volts and 16 kilowatt hours. A total of 260 horsepower may be generated by the setup.

To achieve greater economy overall, the Pacifica* Hybrid is built to transition between the internal combustion engine and the electric motors in an effortless manner. This allows the Pacifica* to go up to 32 miles on electric power alone, and 520 miles on a single tank of petrol. The gas powerplant and brake recapture are used to recharge the lithium-ion battery in the Pacifica* Hybrid, as they are in other hybrid vehicles.

The Pacifica* Hybrid utilizes a CVT, which stands for a continuously variable transmission, in place of a conventional automatic gearbox that has predetermined gear ratios. The gearbox is able to adapt the engine speed to the current driving circumstances, eliminating the need for predetermined gear ratios and thereby increasing fuel economy.

With its front-wheel drivetrain, the Chrysler* Pacifica* Hybrid achieves a median of 82 mpg. This equates to an overall fuel economy of 30 mpg (city and highway combined.)

When fitted with front-wheel drive and the base gas engine, the Pacifica* achieves around 19 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the interstate, and 23 mpg combined. The gas-powered, all-wheel-drive Pacifica* gets 17 mpg in the city, 25 mpg on the highway, and 20 mpg on the combined cycle, which is not quite as good as the front-wheel-drive model.
