MotorWeek has named the all-new Chrysler Pacifica as the 2017 Drivers’ Choice Award “Best Minivan.” Lauded as the most-awarded minivan of 2016 and 2017, the Pacifica is one of the most popular choices at SVG Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Eaton.
“There’s a lot to love about the 2017 Pacifica. said John Davis, creator and host of MotorWeek, television’s original automotive magazine. “The ride and handling are much improved, the cabin is a lot quieter and the seats more comfortable. Even the operation of their exclusive Stow ‘n Go seating has been made easier.
“Then there is technology candy from the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, the Uconnect Theater for rear occupants, and a host of state-of-the-art safety and convenience features, including surround view cameras, parking assistance and automatic emergency braking,” Davis added. “Plus, let’s not forget the new built-in vacuum – well, it’s a veritable plethora of great reasons to own, drive and feel secure in this new-age Pacifica.”
Known as one of the auto industry’s most coveted honors, the MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Awards were announced at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. In selecting the annual Drivers’ Choice Awards, the MotorWeek editorial staff evaluates more than 150 cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles every year. Winners are chosen based on driving performance, technology, practicality, fuel efficiency and value for the dollar.
Re-engineered from the ground up on an all-new platform, the 2017 Pacifica delivers class-leading gasoline and hybrid powertrains to the minivan segment. With more than 100 available safety and security features, the all-new Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment system, and a full array of comfort and convenience technologies, the Chrysler Pacifica has earned its spot as the most awarded minivan of 2016 and 2017.
The Pacifica Hybrid takes the revolutionary vehicle a step further with its class-exclusive, innovative hybrid powertrain. It’s the first electrified vehicle in the minivan segment and achieves 84 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in electric-only mode and 33 miles of all-electric range.
