The Pinnacle adds a Safety Sphere package that includes a 360-degree camera, parallel and perpendicular park assist, and front park assist, plus a FamCam interior camera (optional on other models) that lets people in the front seats keep an eye on kids in rear-facing child seats in the second row and even zoom in for a closer look at passengers. The Pinnacle model also gets a standard 19-speaker Harman/Kardon auto system (it's 20 speakers on the hybrid).
Meanwhile, for those who don't want or need that much luxury in a family vehicle, there's still Chrysler's "budget friendly" Voyager, which starts at $28,730 and retains the former Pacifica's look and feel. Both Voyager and Pacifica continue with the 287-hp 3.6-liter V-6 and nine-speed automatic transmission. The hybrid makes 260 hp with the 3.6-liter V-6 and two electric motors plus a 16.0-kWh lithium-ion battery.
