Fully Automatic Sliding Doors And Power Fold-Out Wheelchair Ramp
On the Chrysler Pacifica, Power Fold-Out XT, handicap accessible vehicle, the vehicles sliding side doors and ramp are both full-power for convenience and ease of operation. By activating the open or close command on the vehicle’s factory key-less remote or through the use of various interior switches, the door will open or close and deploy or stow the on-board ramp. In the event of power failure, the wheelchair ramp features an integrated back-up system that can be used to operate the ramp manually.

Auto Kneeling Feature
In an effort to reduce the wheelchair ramp angle, making it easier for a wheelchair user to enter and exit the vehicle, this wheelchair accessible van is equipped with a power, fully automatic, integrated “kneeling” system. When the deploy ramp command is initiated, the on-board computer activates an actuator that is mounted on the rear passenger side of the vehicle’s suspension. Once engaged, this actuator lowers the wheelchair accessible vans ramp side, reducing ramp angle to only 8.6 degrees. This reduction in ramp angle is key to making it easier for a wheelchair user to enter and exit the vehicle, especially manual wheelchair users. This kneeling option can also be turned off through a switch on the dash for situations when it isn’t necessary to engage.
As part of the wheelchair van conversion process, the floor of the BraunAbility®, Chrysler Pacifica, Power XT wheelchair accessible van is lowered 14 inches from the firewall (just behind the engine) to the rear axle. This lowering of the floor does two things: First, it allows for a taller door entry height of 57 inches to allow for a taller, seated wheelchair user to enter without hitting their head. Second, it provides a wheelchair user with a more direct line-of-sight while either driving or riding as a passenger. (For a standard door opening height, see Power Fold-Out model)
