Chrysler and Google team up to create a smarter self-driving 2017 Pacifica Hybrid

There's no doubt that when two innovative forces combine, only great things come out of it. For example, Laurel and Hardy delivered some of the most memorable comedic performances of their time. Dinner and a show makes for the perfect date night. And somehow, though they are almost polar opposites of each other, peanut butter and jelly makes the best sandwich. Period. So, when two titans of industry like Chrysler and Google team up, you know it's got to be good!

This week, Chrysler announced that it would be collaborating with Google to advance the Self-Driving Car Project. This is a first for Google, because while its innovative autonomous experiment has already logged 1.4 million miles of road testing, it has never worked directly with an automaker to build a new self-driving vehicle from the ground up. Google's team will be partially relocating to Michigan to work with the engineers at Chrysler and upgrade 100 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrids, nearly doubling its fleet of autonomous cars.

With the teams at Google and Chrysler working on the Pacifica Hybrid, we may be not driving these vehicles sooner than you might think! For now though, if you'd like to get behind the wheel of this capable new vision of the minivan from Chrysler, visit us at Dave Davis' East Carolina Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Greenville to schedule your test drive today!
