Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Continues to Earn Praise

If you think the minivan segment is slowly fading away, think again. The Chrysler Pacifica just debuted for the 2018 model year, and it has made huge waves in the automobile industry. This minivan sets new standards for its segment, offering thoughtful features like easy to use, flexible seating; an in-cabin vacuum; and intelligent, family-friendly entertainment technology throughout the cabin. The Chrysler Pacifica has even been named “the best” in several award categories.

One category in which the Chrysler Pacifica earned its honorable superlative was when it was called “2018 Best Hybrid Vehicle to Buy” by the The Car Connection. This minivan was the first to come in a hybrid powertrain, making it all the more versatile. The Car Connection also called the Chrysler Pacifica the “2018 Best Minivan to Buy.” Green Car Reports, which focuses on hybrid, electric, and fuel-efficient vehicles, called this minivan the “2018 Best Car to Buy.”

At Rochester Hills CDJR, we love to hear that our favorite minivan is also a favorite among many shoppers and reviewers in the American market. Its sales have continued to increase and we expect that buyers will continue to choose the Chrysler Pacifica for its exceptional efficiency, its thoughtful features, and advanced safety and technology.

The Chrysler Pacific Hybrid impressed the writers with its great range, efficiency, and excellent versatility.


“With its 33-mile electric-only range, the Pacifica Hybrid has plenty of range for most drivers’ daily commutes…” said NWAPA President John Vincent. “Journalists overwhelmingly picked the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid as the Northwest Family Green Car of the Year, recognizing the first hybrid minivan’s exceptional fuel economy as a groundbreaking way to extend family budgets.”


Along with its fuel-saving powertrain, the Pacifica offers more than 100 available safety and security features, along with an abundance of desirable tech features. Families will especially appreciate the available Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment system.
