Battle Creek-based Freedom Motors today unveiled the world’s first wheelchair accessible conversion for the Chrysler Pacifica, updating the conversion technology to match the chassis changes of the all-new 2017 model.
“Chrysler has made dramatic changes to bring the minivan back into favor in the U.S. market,” says Sieto van Dillen, president of Freedom Motors. “As an industry that heavily favors the comfortable and roomy nature a minivan provides, we couldn’t miss an opportunity to join (Chrysler’s) advancements in passenger luxury with unmatched entertainment features.”
Freedom Motors first previewed the conversion at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January. It is a part of eight unique wheelchair accessible vehicle models, including the Kia Soul, Fiat 500L, Scion xB, and a full line of accessible minivans from Dodge, Chrysler, Honda, and Toyota.
“We are proud to note that the conversion of the Pacifica is our most quiet and smoothest riding vehicle modification to date,” van Dillen says.
Freedom Motors USA is now accepting pre-orders for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Wheelchair Accessible model. Pricing options have yet to be released. Shipping is slated to begin later this summer.
