This is the third year in a row that the Pacifica has impressed the experts at Good Housekeeping Institute. In 2018, the Pacifica Hybrid was named Best New Hybrid. In 2019, the Pacifica earned the Best New Minivan title.
For this year’s awards, the jury evaluated vehicles according to five categories — safety, handling, value, technology, and design. The vehicles were put to road tests that covered approximately 5,000 miles.
“It’s the ultimate pick if you have a large family and tons of gear. With all the useful features you want, from a flexible interior to top-quality infotainment, it offers unbeatable value,” reports Rachel Rothman, Good Housekeeping Institute.
The Pacifica offers a smoother performance in the 2021 model thanks to its available AWD. Available Stow ‘n Go seating is a popular feature that offers families on the go a versatile cabin space.
“If you want a ride with lots of cargo and passenger space as well as good fuel economy, you can’t go wrong with this minivan,” adds Rothman.
In addition to family-friendly space and organizational features, the Pacifica stands out with confidence-building safety technologies.
“The 2021 Pacifica delivers the most standard safety features in the industry, with 97 standard and 14 new-as-standard safety features, including new LED lights and new Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking (PAEB),” says FCA.
