AutoGuide Names Chrysler Pacifica the 2021 Family Vehicle of the Year

AutoGuide Names Chrysler Pacifica the 2021 Family Vehicle of the Year | Toronto, ON

AutoGuide is a trusted source in the automotive world, providing the latest news and reviews to help consumers buy cars. For its 2021 list of the best vehicles to purchase, the publication named the Chrysler Pacifica the Family Vehicle of the Year.

What made the 2021 Pacifica a winner was its combination of safety, style, roominess, and practicality. AutoGuide editor Kyle Patrick noted, “The Pacifica is the latest evolution of the origins of the species. This made-in-Canada people-mover carries the spirit of the original Caravan, loaded with practical, family-friendly features.”

Indeed, the Pacifica is an ideal family vehicle and has been for years. But the 2021 model brought with it some impressive updates like the inclusion of available all-wheel drive, a new top-of-the-line Pinnacle trim with lush caramel leather and throw pillows, and the revised Uconnect® 5 infotainment system with improved graphics and multiple user profile capability.

Then there’s the Pacifica Hybrid model, which is equipped with many of the same features as the gas-powered Pacifica but houses a 3.6-litre Pentastar™ VVT V6 hybrid engine under its hood. As a result, you can go further for longer thanks to a 51-kilometre all-electric range and a combined driving range of up to 835 kilometres.*

No matter which Chrysler Pacifica you choose, you can trust that you’ll be getting behind the wheel of a reliable family vehicle. If you’d like to take one for a test drive, stop by and see us at Downtown CDJR in Toronto.

When you’re shopping for a new family-friendly vehicle, you don’t want to settle for anything but the best. That’s where the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica comes in. This minivan was recently named the Best New Family Car by Good Housekeeping magazine.

The new Pacifica boasts a new all-wheel-drive system, making it America’s most capable minivan. This system allows you to get the traction you need, even on inclement weather. The Pacifica also comes with a refreshed interior and exterior design, giving it a more athletic look. It’s equipped with the most standard safety features in the industry, including new LED lights and Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking.

Along with these new features, there’s an entirely new model: the Pacifica Pinnacle™. This top-of-the-line model has a luxurious interior that includes two new available integrated consoles, Caramel Nappa leather seats, and movable lumbar comfort pillows for the second-row captain’s chairs, making it a solid option for families driving around Toronto.

To determine the winner of the Best New Family Car, the Good Housekeeping Institute worked with Car and Driver magazine to review hundreds of new vehicles. It chose 15 vehicles overall in various segments.

You can test-drive the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica at Downtown Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram when it arrives later this year — or stop in now to see our outstanding 2020 models.
