The BraunAbility® Power In-floor, Chrysler Pacifica wheelchair accessible van & handicap vehicle is a game changer and is the replacement to the retired Chrysler Town & Country. Newly engineered with advanced mobility technology, the BraunAbility® Power In-floor, Chrysler Pacifica wheelchair accessible van features the most interior space, WIDEST door opening and the strongest & WIDEST wheelchair ramp of any other mobility vehicle in-its-class.
The Chrysler Pacifica wheelchair accessible van is a great option for taller-seated wheelchair users, and those who may have a wider wheelchair or mobility scooter than a standard unit. The BraunAbility® Power In-floor, Chrysler Pacifica handicap accessible vehicle has a usable 55-inch door height, 33.5-inch door opening width, and 32.2 inches of usable wheelchair ramp width. Did we say it has the largest amenities in its class?
Easy to operate, this handicap, wheelchair accessible van from BraunAbility®, boasts unparalleled maneuverability, the most spacious interior of any competitor and numerous advanced features like: single-touch power entry and exit system; power sliding doors; power wheelchair ramp; automatic kneeling system (which helps reduce ramp angle); removable front seats to allow for up-front passenger or from-the-wheelchair driving. However, in addition to the features of the wheelchair conversion itself, the Chrysler Pacifica chassis features some of the most cutting-edge safety and convenience features available in any minivan today!
On the, BraunAbility® Power In-floor, Chrysler Pacifica wheelchair accessible van, the vehicles sliding side doors and ramp are both full-power for not only convenience, but ease of use. By activating the open or close command on the vehicles factory key-fob or through the use of the numerous interior switches, the door will open or close and deploy or stow the on-board handicap ramp. Concerned about power loss? Don’t be! In the event of power failure, the wheelchair ramp features an integrated back-up system that can be used to operate the ramp manually.
The ramp on the, BraunAbility® Power In-floor, Chrysler Pacifica handicap wheelchair accessible van is 52 inches long and 32.25 inches wide, the widest ramp of all its competitors! Plus, it’s made of lightweight aluminum and has a load capacity of 1000 pounds. The ramps surface is powder-coated with a durable, non-skid material and features a slotted finish that ensures superior traction and works to reduce on-boarding debris.
In an effort to reduce the wheelchair ramp angle, making it easier for a wheelchair user, especially a manual wheelchair user to enter and exit the vehicle, every power, BraunAbility® handicap vehicle & wheelchair accessible van feature a fully-automatic, integrated suspension “kneeling” system. This system engages when the ramp deploy command is given. Once this command is given, the on-board computer activates an electric actuator mounted on the vehicles rear, passenger side suspension. This actuator engages to lower the wheelchair accessible vans ramp-side closer to the ground, thus reducing ramp angle to only 9.9 degrees. This option can also be turned off with a switch on the dash for situations when it isn’t necessary, such as loading and exiting to curbs or an elevated surface.
As part of the conversion process in a wheelchair accessible van or handicap vehicle, the floor of the van is lowered. In this case, the floor is lowered 14 inches from the firewall (just behind the engine) to the rear axle. This lowering of the floor does two things in the Pacifica: First, it creates a taller door entry height of 55 inches to allow for entry of taller wheelchair users. Second, it provides a wheelchair user with a direct line-of-sight while either driving or riding as a passenger.
Standard on the, BraunAbility® Power In-floor, Chrysler Pacifica wheelchair accessible van, the front seats can easily be removed to allow access for a wheelchair user to either drive from his or her wheelchair or ride as a passenger up-front. The seats are removed by unlocking them at the base and rolling them away for easy storage.
