The brand-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica was just named the 2017 North American Utility of the Year by a panel of experts. We first found out during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Some experts are saying this is one of the most prestigious awards you can win, especially in this class.
Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge, SRT, FIAT, FCA, and Chrysler believes that they had the formula for a perfect minivan but if it weren’t for loyal customers and professional opinions, we wouldn’t be driving an award-winning mini-van today.
Believe it or not, this is the 24th year of the awards and only the second time ever that a minivan has won an award from the North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year jury.
Innovation isn’t new to the folks at FCA US in fact, they actually have over 100 innovations in this segment alone including the industry’s first minivan available as a Hybrid Electric vehicle.
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has boldened the minivan segment with its massive amount of functionality, technology, and styling. The Pacifica was completely redesigned from the ground up on a brand-new platform. Not only is the Pacifica a class leader in fuel economy but it also features well over 100 available safety and security features. If you are in the market for a no-compromise vehicle suited for your whole family, look no further than the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.
The Pacifica Hybrid takes this revolutionary vehicle a step further with its class-exclusive, innovative advanced and class-exclusive 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.
As if it needed anything else added to its resume, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid boasts 84 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in electric-only mode and up to 33 miles of all-electric range.
