Let me start off at bat: Don Marchionne is a great man. Period. I didn’t agree with him with his paltry 5 year electrification plan for FCA Group, but with his expedited departure, we can now look back with definitive successes and failures.

Sergio Marchionne, CEO of FCA Chrysler laid out a 5 Year Plan to investors in Italy last month that will be his swan song before leaving in April 2019.

But this week he leaves it to his minions at Maserati and Alfa Romeo to hash the details as to how the Ítalo-American auto company will become electrified.

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is a super-efficient minivan for the daily drive, but I found that this electrified people mover also serves as a great vehicle for a long family road trip, averaging nearly 30mpg over the course of a 300-mile drive.

The internet is ablaze today with news of a possible Hellcat Hemi-powered Chrysler 300 SRT, but I really don’t expect that we will see a Hellcat 300 in the United States – even though creating such a vehicle would be relatively simple for the FCA engineers.

The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the sole plug-in hybrid minivan for sale anywhere in North America, but it hasn't had a particularly smooth rollout.

Spy shots showing what appears to be a newer Chrysler 300 SRT wearing the drag radial tires from the new Dodge Demon have ignited an inferno of rumors about a widebody Hellcat Chrysler 300 – but I think that this is just a current foreign-market SRT 300 with some lightweight wheels and drag radial tires.

The new Chrysler Pacifica offers all sorts of advantages over the competition when it comes to interior amenities, but more importantly for some buyers, the new Pacifica offers the best driving dynamics in the minivan segment – feeling more like a sedan than a 7-passenger people mover from behind the steering wheel.

One of my favorite moments in the history of cars is the muscle car wars in the mid 60's and early 70's. Detroit's assembly lines were pumping out high horsepower cars that were marketed towards the youth of America (Baby Boomers). The race was on to see who could be the fastest.
