Chrysler, in partnership with BraunAbility, introduces the wheelchair-accessible 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivan, which made its debut recently at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show.

The minivan features AccessAbility technology, which includes a wide sliding door extension and side-entry ramp, as well as rear-axle space innovations and cantilevered seat bases that expand the interior cabin space, to help ensure obstruction-free maneuverability and ease of entry and exit for wheelchair users.

“The all-new Chrysler Pacifica is proving to be a lot of things to a lot of people, and now equipped with the BraunAbility technology, it is also the perfect tool to help our customers gain freedom to stay active in their everyday lives,” says Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA North America, in a media release.

“For over 45 years, BraunAbility and Chrysler have worked together to empower people with physical disabilities, including our founder Ralph Braun, to stay connected to what matters in their lives,” states Nick Gutwein, president and CEO of BraunAbility, in the release.

“The need for quality mobility solutions is only going to grow, and we are thrilled to align with Chrysler to launch the innovative and uncompromising BraunAbility Chrysler Pacifica,” he adds.
