Google and Chrysler embark on self-driving 2017 Pacifica Hybrid venture

If you haven't heard yet, Chrysler and Google recently teamed up to create a self-driving 2017 Pacifica Hybrid. This partnership is a landmark decision, both for the auto industry and the tech world, and it could have far reaching implications not only for these two companies, but for the self-driving car movement as a whole.

Many automakers have dabbled in self-driving car technology, but with this new collaboration, Chrysler is making a huge step toward making self-driving passenger vehicles a reality. Now, many might think that using the 2017 Pacifica Hybrid for this collaboration means engineering an over-sized autonomous "soccer mom mobile", but this could not be further from the truth. Not only is the Pacifica Hybrid one of the most advanced vehicles in Chrysler's lineup this year, it's size makes it a strong candidate for a new mobility solution for the disabled, with 200 cubic-feet of interior space able to comfortably accommodate wheel chairs and give back a degree of independence to those who need it most.

It's not an exaggeration to say that Chrysler and Google's partnership on this project could revolutionize the autonomous vehicle movement. And while self-driving passenger vehicles still have a number of hurdles to clear before we see them commercially available, if you'd like to see the vehicle behind this endeavor in action, visit us at River Oaks Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM in Houston to schedule your test drive today!
