Minivan Monday: ‘Thoughtfully designed’ Chrysler Pacifica captures two awards

The most awarded minivan of the past two years collected two more honors in the waning months of 2017.

2018 Chrysler Pacifica

The editors at Consumer Guide® Automotive awarded the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica both the Minivan and Family Vehicle Best Buy awards.

This was the second consecutive year the Pacifica has won those awards.

“It’s simply one of the most thoughtfully designed family vehicles we’ve ever evaluated,” Tom Appel, Publisher of Consumer Guide Automotive, said of the Pacifica.

Editors at WardsAuto also named the 3.6-liter Pentastar eHybrid one of Wards 10 Best Engines for 2018. This is the second time the powertrain has received this honor.

The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 that’s part of the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan powertrain was named a Wards 10 Best Engine.

Since their introduction, the Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid have won 72 awards and honors, including the 2017 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year, The Detroit News: Vehicle of the Year and Cars.com title of “Best Minivan of 2017.”
