2021 Chrysler Pacifica Named Good Housekeeping Best New Family Car

2021 Chrysler Pacifica | Toronto, ON

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.

Drive Safe with These Back-to-School Safety Tips

Drive Safe with These Back-to-School Safety Tips | Toronto, ON

With summer coming to a close, it’s time to prepare your children — and yourself — for a new school year. In addition to getting new supplies and clothes, make sure you remember these back-to-school safety tips to help keep you and those around you safe this fall.

Make sure your kids understand bus safety. With many children getting the school bus every morning, it’s important that you teach your kids the rules for getting on and off the bus. This includes:

  • Never running to or from the bus.
  • Staying far back from the side of the road while at the bus stop.
  • Wait until the bus driver signals that it is safe for you to cross the road.
  • Walk when you cross the road, don’t run.

Keep an eye out for children. As you near school zones, make sure you’re alert and looking for children everywhere. Because children tend to be easily distracted, they can sometimes dart into the road without looking. Being vigilant will help you recognize when this happens, preventing potential accidents.

Stick to the speed limit. Speed limits are there for a reason — to keep both you and those around you safe. When driving, make sure you stick to these limits.
