Could the Chrysler Pacifica Add an All-Wheel-Drive Option?

Could the Chrysler Pacifica Add an All-Wheel-Drive Option? A new report suggests that the minivan may soon join Toyota's Sienna in offering AWD. The Chrysler Pacifica minivan may gain all-wheel drive, according to a new report. This would help the Chrysler better compete against the Toyota Sienna, which is currently the only minivan with an AWD option. Chrysler hasn't yet commented on whether an AWD Pacifica is happening or not. All-wheel drive was once commonly available in the minivan segment, but today the Toyota Sienna is the only vehicle in the class to offer it.

How One Man Brought Back the '58 Coupe that Chrysler Made Disappear© Jay Leno's Garage - YouTube It's hard to find a bigger two-door, let alone a rarer one. Back in the day, Chrysler simply made these disappear.

Jay Leno's Garage wouldn't exist without the team of experts that Jay has gathered throughout the years. A full-time team keeps everything in the Leno fleet ready for a drive at any moment, and carry out full restorations on the cars and bikes that need some time to get there.

One benefit of having such a job is that, after hours, Leno's car curators can use the facility to work on their own projects. Making the most of the space, Swedish-born Per Blixt, Leno's master painter and body specialist, spent quite some time putting together a basket case 1958 Chrysler 300D. This massive Hemi-powered luxury barge may have been far gone when Blixt got it, but it also happened to be a numbers-matching fuel-injected car, one of just 23 built with factory fuel injection. When new, the cars were recalled, de-badged and rebuilt with the standard carburetors, as the fuel injection technology was deemed a failure by Chrysler.

This 1941 Willys Hot Rod Is Not So Mellow In Yellow

This 1941 Willys Hot Rod Is Not So Mellow In Yellow Willys-Overland Motors made more than just Jeeps. This classic coupe now lives its life as a hot rod When the automobile manufacturer Willys is mentioned, you’d be forgiven for immediately thinking of the iconic World War 2 Jeep it produced. However, the Willys-Overland Motors Americar was a road-based model built between 1941 and 1942. This bright yellow hotrod heading to auction with Hollywood Wheels is based on a classic coupe. Sitting on a custom frame, this Willys Coupe retains its distinctive silhouette with a hood that tapers to a point, and steeply raked rear profile.

When Blixt found this car at a Californian recycling lot some 15 years ago, the Bendix Corporation's dual-transistor-based Electrojector system was gone, along with a number of body parts, the interior and the paint. But the carbureted 392 Hemi was there, and so the quest began to upgrade this unique survivor with a more modern, ECU-operated Bosch fuel injection system, as well as all the period options from Chrysler's 1958 catalog, 15-inch wire wheels and dual chrome exhausts included. Sporting its factory color and a brand new, Swedish-made interior, this fuel-injected '58 is the car Chrysler couldn't quite build more than 60 years ago.
