Once again the experts have agreed: the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is the best when it comes to minivans. The popular and highly acclaimed model has been honored by the influential Popular Mechanics magazine. The magazine helps readers navigate our complex and technological world, and one of the ways it does this is through their annual Automotive Excellence Awards. Using their expertise and extensive research, the editors drive a huge amount of vehicles throughout the year in order to select the best in each class. To win an Automotive Excellence Award, a model must transcend the competition – something the Popular Mechanics editors felt the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica did.

Being named Best Minivan in the Automotive Excellence Awards is just one of the many accolades the all-new minivan has earned. Given the history of FCA US LLC, who created the original minivan over 30 years ago, it’s no wonder the company has continued to successfully innovate in the segment. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica boasts an impressive 37 firsts for minivans, and provides drivers with the kind of functionality and versatility that makes a perfect family vehicle. Not only that, but its comfortable interior and sleek styling make it a minivan anyone would be proud to drive. As automotive editor at Popular Mechanics Ezra Dyer says, “Over three decades, Chrysler has refined the category it invented, arriving at the current standard for minivan excellence.”

Even here at your Monroe, MI Chrysler dealership, it’s hard to expand on praise like that.
