For the fifth year in a row, the Chrysler Pacifica has earned the Consumer Guide Best Buy award. A fellow FCA model, the Ram 1500, also took home honors in the Large Pickup category for the 13th consecutive year.
“The Ram 1500 continues to impress for its class-leading ride and handling and upscale cabin experience. The Chrysler Pacifica impresses for its passenger-friendly features and long-trip comfort. The addition of all-wheel drive adds to the Pacifica’s appeal,” said Tom Appel, publisher of Consumer Guide Automotive.

The lineup for 2021 includes a new Pinnacle trim, which boasts high-end features, class-leading horsepower, and an unbeatable list of standard safety tech and systems. Plus, it looks good, according to Consumer Guide reviewers.
“What cinches its Best Buy status are its exclusive Stow ‘n Go second-row seats and the outstanding fuel efficiency of its well-executed plug-in hybrid model, along with its newly available all-wheel drive and long list of thoughtful available convenience features,” notes Consumer Guide Automotive.
