When Fiat Chrysler Automobiles first teased the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, we knew it was something pretty special. Boasting next-generation technology, a panoramic sunroof for infinite beauty, a suite of safety and security technology, and a plug-in hybrid variant, it's safe to say the Chrysler Pacifica knows how to challenge the status quo.

If that wasn't enough, the Google Self-Driving Car Project is leveraging the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid in its testing program. That's right, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the Google Self-Driving Car Project will build 100 minivans complete with autonomous sensors and software.

“FCA has a nimble and experienced engineering team and the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan is well-suited for Google’s self-driving technology,” said John Krafcik, Chief Executive Officer, Google Self-Driving Car Project. “The opportunity to work closely with FCA engineers will accelerate our efforts to develop a fully self-driving car that will make our roads safer and bring everyday destinations within reach for those who cannot drive.”

We can't wait to see what comes of this project. In the meantime, come visit our Charleston, South Carolina showroom for a test drive in a new FCA model.
