The Chrysler Pacifica continues to get more and more recognition, the most recent of which came in the form of the “Best Minivan Award” given the New York Daily News, which it received for the second year in a row. Selected from a jury of 12 auto journalists and experts, this award is given for value, design, engineering, innovation, and driving dynamics. The New York Daily News award is just one of many that validates the work of Chrysler engineers.
According to Chrysler, the Pacifica was the most-awarded minivan of 2016 and 2017, and it appears that 2018 will follow suit. New features include things like the standard SafetyTec Group, which has ParkSense Rear Park Assist with Stop, Blind-spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross Path detection. The goal for judges for the recent wards were to recommend vehicles in the order that you would suggest them to family members, friends, or co-workers, perhaps one reason the Pacific scored so high.
“Redesigned just last year, the Pacifica is great minivan made even better by wider availability of its optional plug-in hybrid drivetrain and newly enhanced value equation, and, thus, is a repeat champ,” said Christian Wardlaw, New York Daily News Autos Editor. “Families will further appreciate added amenities, especially in the safety department with all 2018 Pacificas equipped with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear park assist with automatic braking.”
The logic is simple: when it comes to family transportation, nothing beats a minivan. And when it comes to minivans, nothing beats the Chrysler Pacifica. If you’re looking for a family vehicle, make sure to test drive the Pacifica at Rothrock CDJR!
