  • 2017 Chrysler Pacifica takes the No. 1 spot after going head-to-head with last year’s top finishers
  • Experts from Cars.com evaluated the all-new Pacifica with extensive testing, including round-robin testing and a 130-mile fuel mileage drive
  • With nearly 40 minivan innovations, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid revolutionize the minivan segment
October 31, 2016,  Auburn Hills, Mich. - Experts at Cars.com have named the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica the “Best Minivan of 2016” in its “Ultimate Minivan Challenge.” The test took a “Champions versus Challenger” approach in which the newest minivan on the market went head-to-head with the top two finishers in Cars.com’s 2015 “Ultimate Minivan Challenge.”
 
“The Chrysler Pacifica out-styles, out-drives and just plain out-wows the rest of the pack,” said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com editor-in-chief. “It is a true joy to drive; something not often used to describe a minivan. Behind the engine, the van is versatile and packed with impressive family-friendly features.”
 
The Cars.com minivan challenge included round-robin testing where each expert tested each car on the same course back-to-back and a mileage drive to calculate real-world fuel economy. After extensive testing, the 2017 Chrysler Pacific took the No. 1 spot.
 
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica reinvents the minivan segment with an unprecedented level of functionality, versatility, technology and bold styling. Re-engineered from the ground up on an all-new platform, the Pacifica delivers class-leading gasoline and hybrid powertrains to the minivan segment. With more than 100 available safety and security features, the all-new Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment system, and a full array of comfort and convenience technologies, the Chrysler Pacifica is a no-compromises minivan ideally suited for today's families and has earned its spot as the most awarded minivan of the year.
