2017 Chrysler Pacifica Is Popular Mechanics’ Best Minivan

As Chrysler dealers serving Caldwell, ID and surrounding neighborhoods, we couldn’t be happier to tell you that the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has been recognized by yet another automotive authority. This time, the popular minivan earned the title of “Best Minivan” in Popular Mechanics’ 2017 Automotive Excellence Awards.

Published by Hearst Magazines, Popular Mechanics is a monthly periodical that’s enjoyed by more than nine million readers. The magazine provides valuable information that’s intended to inspire and instruct its readers as they navigate a world that’s getting more and more challenging and technological. The magazine includes a host of information that ranges from discussions of the latest scientific innovations to “how-to” automotive stories to product reviews and comparisons, and more.

Given the wide array of topics Popular Mechanics covers and its exhaustive coverage of the automotive industry, receiving recognition as Best Minivan as part of the magazine’s annual Automotive Excellence Awards is particularly meaningful.

“Over three decades, [the] Chrysler [brand] has refined the category it invented, arriving at the current standard for minivan excellence,” said Ezra Dyer, automotive editor at Popular Mechanics. “The [Chrysler] Pacifica looks sleek and low-slung without committing the unforgivable minivan sin of trying too hard. Other vans have disappearing third rows, but the [Chrysler] Pacifica can hide its second row, too, instantly transforming from luxury people-mover to capacious cargo van.”

Since inventing the minivan segment more than three decades ago, FCA US LLC made 78 innovations through the first five generations of its minivans. Not content with its past accomplishments, the carmaker introduced 37 additional “firsts” in the minivan niche when it unveiled the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. One of the manufacturer’s most notable “firsts” was the introduction of the automotive industry’s first plug-in, electric minivan, the Chrysler Pacific Hybrid.
