The Chrysler Citadel was a concept car created by DaimlerChrysler under the Chrysler marque. It was shown at the 2000 Washington DC Auto Show. The Citadel was a hybrid with good performance and the inspiration for the production-model Pacifica. The Citadel name was later used for a trim level on the 2011 Dodge Durango.

Engine and Performance[edit]

The Citadel is powered by a 189 kW (253-hp), 3.5-L, V6 gasoline engine in the rear wheels and an electric one in the front wheels. This combination of powers gives better performance in the rear. The gasoline engine gives out 253 horsepower (189 kW) and a surplus 70 horsepower (52 kW) from the electric motor. The Citadel uses rear-wheel drive (RWD).
