Green Car Reports, which focuses its reporting on electric cars, fuel-efficient vehicles, and automotive manufacturers focused on creating environmentally-friendly and “green” vehicles, has deemed the vehicle its “2018 Best Car to Buy,” while The Car Connection has recognized the Pacifica Hybrid as the “2018 Best Hybrid Vehicle to Buy.” The “2018 Best Minivan to Buy” title according to The Car Connection, goes to the Chrysler Pacifica.
“The Chrysler Pacifica wins because it’s a one-of-a-kind vehicle: the sole seven-seat minivan with a plug-in hybrid powertrain sold in the U.S. this year,” said John Voelcker, senior editor at Green Car Reports. “Not only does it offer all the virtues of the well-received Chrysler Pacifica, it offers substantial real-world electric range—30 miles or more in most cases—and much better fuel economy when operating as a hybrid.”
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid combines incredible versatility, advanced technologies, and impressive fuel efficiency, and its positive attributes have not gone unnoticed. According to Chrysler, it’s “the most awarded minivan of 2016 and 2017.”
