AutoGuide Family Vehicle of The Year for 2021 has been awarded to the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica. The popular family van comes with the latest driving dynamics and safety features. Winning the award just shows how much the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica continues to impress. The 2021 Pacifica sets new expectations for its segment with an unprecedented level of functionality, versatility, technology, and new available AWD. Chrysler does an amazing job of adding family-friendly features that include the all-new FamCam interior camera giving parents an actual eye behind their head. 

 “The Pacifica is the latest evolution of the origins of the species. This made-in-Canada people-mover carries the spirit of the original Caravan, loaded with practical, family-friendly features. All-wheel drive returned to the Pacifica menu this year, giving the Pacifica added foul-weather capability. Chrysler also added a lux Pinnacle model this year, which dials up the interior ambiance with creamy caramel leather. This year’s update also introduced a revised Uconnect 5 system. This 10.1-inch infotainment system builds on one of our favorite examples in the market, with crisper graphics, quicker responses, and the ability to create multiple user profiles.” said AutoGuide Editor Kyle Patrick

The Chrysler family is proud to offer 116 standard and available safety and security features, the most any vehicle offers in the industry. In just the last five years the Chrysler Pacifica has become the most awarded minivan in the world with more than 145 industry accolades. The features included in the minivan are based on the needs of parents all across the world. The all-new FamCam interior camera keeps the kids in view on the screen so the driver does not get distracted or ever have the need to turn around. The AutoGuide team drove over 100 new model vehicles this year and judged 34 finalists in six overall categories on many attributes, including value, innovation, user-friendliness, technology, safety, and more. AutoGuide believes the best vehicles should set new standards even beyond their class.   

Not only does the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica bring the latest innovative technology, it presents buyers with top-of-the-line performance and efficiency. The popular van comes with a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine capable of producing 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. The engine features dual overhead camshafts, high-flow intake, exhaust ports, variable valve timing, and electronic throttle control. The family van has a fuel rating of 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway making it a perfect traveling vehicle for family trips. Chrysler also offers a plug-in-hybrid engine that operates in an Atkinson Cycle; the cycle uses a reduced air-fuel mixture to enhance efficiency. Ready to drive a new Chrysler?
