2017 Chrysler Pacifica Receives Coveted Spot on Wards 10 Best User Experience List
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is the newest minivan on the market, and it’s providing its segment with a whole slew of “firsts.” Not only is this minivan the first to offer a hybrid powertrain system and the first to be used in Google’s journey to creating autonomous vehicles, but it is now also one of the first vehicles to earn a spot on the first-ever Wards 10 Best User Experience List for 2016.
This list looks at the overall user experience of a vehicle, rating each model on a variety of experiences. These experiences include user-friendliness, infotainment features, sound systems, vehicle connectivity, driver assistance technology, information/displays, system compatibility, and materials.
“When it comes to a minivan, it’s all about the experience—both for our customers and their entire families,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands for FCA North America. “Ward’s recognition that the new Pacifica ‘treats occupants like royalty’ and offers among the best user experience on the road are further validation that the new Chrysler Pacifica is delivering both the high-tech, easy-to-use features our customers want and deserve and is another reason why the all-new Chrysler Pacifica is the most awarded minivan of the year.”
As the most technologically equipped minivan in its segment, it really comes as no surprise that Chrysler’s new minivan has earned such a coveted spot. The Pacifica has an available Uconnect Theater entertainment system, which provides passengers with two 10-inch touchscreen displays in the back seats, a 7-inch full-color driver information display, Uconnect Access, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen—among other features.
After receiving recognition on the Wards 10 Best Interiors List for 2016, we think it’s safe to say that WardsAuto definitely loves the 2017 Pacifica—and we do, too.
