On Wednesday, November 29th, we got a sneak peek of the new Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid at the L.A. Auto Show. There were guest appearances by television personality Vanessa Lachey, “Speechless” actor Micah Fowler, and Top Chef Junior contestants Maxine and Rahanna.

There were yummy, kid-friendly treats including pizza zucchini bites, mac and cheese bites, and sliders.

We also met the big bear that’s in all the Chrysler Pacifica billboard ads throughout L.A. It was funny to see him pop out of the Chrysler Pacifica and tell us about all the new features, such as Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment system, and the comfortable ride in the 84 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) in electric only mode.

Cookie Monster was also there to celebrate the most awarded minivan of 2016 and 2017.
