The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica received top honors at this year’s Detroit auto show when North American Car of the Year judges handed it the coveted Utility Vehicle of the Year award, but that’s not the only high praise the van received this week.
Cars.com has awarded the Pacifica with its Best of 2017 award – the publication’s highest honor. As it does with all of its ‘Best Of’ award winners, Cars.com went and bought a 2017 Pacifica to put their money where their mouth is and will be doling updates on their ownership experience throughout the year.
“In many ways, Chrysler turned the minivan segment upside down with its new Pacifica,” Cars.com writes. “It out-styles, out-drives and just plain out-wows the rest of the class. With the Cars.com Best of 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, it’s families who win.”
Cars.com appreciated the Pacifica’s svelte styling, available seating for eight and the upscale look and feel on the interior. It also made note of the refined and quiet ride, good handling and available hybrid powertrain that returns the equivalent of 80 eMPG.
