I've heard PB Blaster is good stuff, but the best I've found is "Rust Penetrant" from the Chrysler dealer's parts department. It does in ten minutes what WD-40 does in a weekend.
I've never had a wheel bearing rusted that tight even on a Ford truck. I replaced the first bearing on my '88 Grand Caravan two years ago and the old one popped right off. That's my daily driver and it lives outdoors in Wisconsin, the road salt capital of the world. Your vehicle is only five years old. I'm very surprised the bearing is coming out that hard. You might try reinstalling the three mounting bolts half way, then tapping on their heads. Also look if there's room to pound a flat chisel between the spindle and bearing. That's what I do at two or three places to remove Ford and Dodge truck bearings.
