Kathryn Hahn Stars in New Chrysler Pacifica Ad Series

716 × 401

The Chrysler Pacifica is launching a new ad campaign featuring the always hilarious Kathryn Hahn.

The new ads have the actress, and mother of two, promote the Chrysler Pacifica in what can only be described as absurd hijinks. The five-part video series shows Hahn having fun without sacrifice as she picks up her kids from school, has a girl’s night out, or is simply unloading her groceries (in a manner of speaking).

The Pacifica she is promoting in the ad series is the new S Appearance Package. This package is available on the 2018 Pacifica Touring Plus, Touring L, Touring L Plus, and Limited models. The package features black accents both inside and out and gives the Pacifica a much more athletic look.

“This campaign spoke to me as both a mom who spends a lot of time with my kids while driving and as someone who still likes to turn up the volume after I’ve dropped them off at school,” said Kathryn Hahn in a statement.

Learn More About the Jeep Active Drive II 4×4 System for Winter Driving

959 × 535

The recent and sudden snow storm that hit New York shows that it is time to start taking the winter weather seriously.  To help people prepare for the hazardous driving that comes from the season, FCA has released a guide to understanding the difference between all-wheel drive (AWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD).

The basic way they describe the difference between AWD and 4WD is that AWD systems are always active and the torque is automatically shared between the axles when a low-traction condition is detected.  4WD is a part-time system is turned on by the driver via controls in the driver seat.

Numerous vehicles in the Jeep and Dodge line-up have auto-engaging systems.  Examples are the Charger, Challenger and the Jeep Renegade, Compass, Grand Cherokee, and more.

To better understand how the Jeep Active Drive 4×4 system works, Jeep put together a video demonstrating it.
