What are the power sources for the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica, especially the Hybrid?

All Pacifica models are front-wheel drive by design and know that Engine stop-­start is on the LX, Touring Plus, Touring L Plus, Touring L, & Limited models as standard. All 2018 Pacifica models contain a gas-powered 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that composes 287 horsepower and pushes 262 lb-ft of torque. This engine gets matched with a TorqueFlite 9-speed automatic transmission, while the Hybrid sees a single-electrically variable transmission (si-EVT) called EFlite. The EFlite itself has two electric motors, which are both capable of driving the vehicle's wheels. The Hybrid earns 84 MPGe and to do this, a 16-kWh lithium-ion (96 cell Li-ion) high voltage battery pack is also utilized. The battery self-charges via regenerative braking and comes with its own 10-year Limited Warranty (variable milage applies). The Hybrid can charge in about 2 hours with an available 240-Volt Level II charger, but it can also charge in any regular wall outlet with more time.
