Chrysler Pacifica Lands on Parents Best Family Car 2022 List

May 30th, 2022 by


The Chrysler Pacifica is one renowned minivan, having earned more than 170 honors and industry accolades since its release. During May 2022, Parents magazine finished its “Best of” lists, such as the Best Family Car by Parents. It’s very clear that the Pacifica will continue to add more awards to its portfolio, because for the third consecutive year Chrysler Pacifica has been recognized and added to the list as a Best Family Car by Parents.

For almost 100 years, Parents has been a community of trustworthy advice and a support to help parents raise the next generation. Since 1926, Parents has been committed to supporting caregivers, and in today’s day and age, Parents has become the leading source for busy, millennial moms who live digital lives. ADAS, also known as advanced driver assist systems and other technology, along with electric vehicles (EVs) and their charging times, were considered when putting together this year’s Best Family Car by Parents list. When judging vehicles for a “Best of” list, Parents uses its Expert Review Board, made up of a diverse group of recognized experts with up-to-date credentials and certifications, and approach health and parenting topics with a science-backed view.

Now that’s some real credentials for a family-focused publication. If there was any doubt that the Best Family Car by Parents list was just consumer opinion, think again. The Parents Best Family Cars 2022 highlights new-model vehicles with high-tech performance, safety, and convenience features that add to family life on the road. Multiple categories were covered during the trimming down of the list, including minivans, three-row SUVs, two-row SUVs, and sedans. More than 50 cars were evaluated by the Parents judges, with only 25 models passing test-drive standards and seat compatibility, showing safe and efficient design for parents-on-the-go.

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica has many features and awards going for it, starting at $37,095 (plus destination fee). For 2022, the Pacifica earned a Top Safety Pick + rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), hard proof of its safety for families. Adding new tech to all models in the lineup over the years, Amazon Fire TV has been made available to stream shows (with a Wi-Fi hotspot), play games, listen to music, get information, and watch downloaded programs on the available Uconnect Theater system. That’s all well and good for keeping passengers busy, but what about the driver and front-passenger? The Uconnect 5 system comes standard on a 10.1-inch touchscreen, the largest standard touchscreen in its class, and all trims come with a Blu-Ray/DVD player system, seatback video screens, and wireless headphones.

Now made for performance, the Pacifica offers all-wheel drive (AWD on select trims. This paired with Pacifica’s class-exclusive Stow ‘n Go seating that doubles as Stow ‘n Go in-floor storage bins, this is the ultimate soccer mom minivan. The storage bins can act as coolers for water and refreshments and seat up to six youngsters for the weekly carpool. For those with younger kids, or those who wish to nod off in the third row, a FamCAM interior camera can be found on every trim past the base trim, able to check in on rear passengers. Perfect for when someone is complaining about personal space.
