Chrysler Pacifica Named Best Minivan 5th Year-in-a-Row
2020 is finally over, it’s such a nice day out, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA; Stellantis) already has plenty of good news to share after finalizing the merger with the PSA Group. How the merger survived the pandemic is still a testament to how committed the two automotive groups are to form the world’s fourth-largest automaker. It certainly is a step up, and to start off 2021, Chrysler already brings it in with the title of the “Best Minivan to Buy 2021” for the Chrysler Pacifica. The win comes from none other than The Car Connection, a well-known name for consumers looking to learn about and shop for cars online.
“No other vehicle does utility like the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica, especially now that it comes with all-wheel drive…It’s elegant, spacious, flexible and it’s offered in plug-in hybrid form.” – Martin Padgett, editorial director of Internet Brands Automotive, publishers of The Car Connection
At The Car Connection, the website makes it easy for consumers to learn about the best cars on the market with a unique “TCC Rating”, a collective score on a 10-point scale based on the overall opinion of The Car Connection automotive experts on any vehicle. Part of the Internet Brands Automotive Group, which reaches more than 35 million unique visitors each month, if a consumer is in the market for a vehicle, one of the websites they’ll visit is The Car Connection. Naming the Chrysler Pacifica the Best Minivan to buy so early in 2021, for the fifth consecutive year, adds more a little more gold to the well-known name.
Having won over 140 honors and industry accolades in the auto industry, ranked highest amongst families time and again, offering style, performance, and safety, the Chrysler Pacifica is the modern minivan of today and tomorrow. When Chrysler first released the Pacifica in 2016, packed with Stow ‘n Go seating and Uconnect Theater entertainment options, the minivan quickly became an icon for Chrysler. Over time, more options have sprung up on the Pacifica, such as the Red S Appearance Package and all-wheel drive (AWD). With Rodèo Red Nappa leather seats and the Advanced SafetyTec Group, this is a minivan with the most advanced AWD system in its class and plenty of neat features with a 20-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system, KeySense technology, and Uconnect Theater.
The Chrysler Pacifica is also one of the first vehicles that will get access to the all-new Uconnect 5 system, standard across the Pacifica lineup, powered by a largest-in-class 10.1-inch touchscreen and Amazon Alexa. Yeah, Fiat Chrysler and Amazon are working on putting Alexa-enabled devices not just in consumers’ homes but also their vehicles to use the same skills on the road. Play music or audiobooks, add items to a shopping list, check the news, or really anything that the Amazon Alexa can do, now from the cabin of the Chrysler Pacifica.
Safety is a huge part of minivans, and the Pacifica comes with 97 standard safety features – no other vehicle in the industry gives consumers this much safety right from the factory. In 2021, all Chrysler Pacifica models come with Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, LaneSense Lane Departure Warning-Plus with Lane Keep Assist, Advanced Brake Assist, and the new Passenger Side Small Offset Rigid Barrier (SORB) for improved protection of occupants in a side collision. For consumers who like to get all the safety features possible, there are also additional advanced safety features available when opting in for the new, optional Safety Sphere Package, made available for 2021 models as a part of the new Premium Group Package. This package also adds on a 360 Surround View Camera, the Class-exclusive ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist, and Front and Rear Park Assist with Stop (with Rear-stop only).
With all this luxury, technology, and safety, it’s no wonder the Chrysler Pacifica has quickly become the Pinnacle model for minivans. Find your new Chrysler Pacifica at Aventura Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram today.
