Despite new or reinvigorated minivan competition, the Chrysler Pacifica again earned the top spot amongst its peers based on measures such as value, innovation, performance, comfort, technology, and ultimate desirability.
What's more, for the first time, the industry-first Pacifica Hybrid was factored into the expert judges' decision. Pacifica Hybrid takes the minivan a step further with its innovative, advanced hybrid powertrain, achieving 2.6 Le/100km [109 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe)] in city driving, 53 kilometers of all-electric range and 911 km of total driving range.
"Now with added plug-in hybrid capability, the Chrysler Pacifica is not only the most attractive and feature-rich minivan on the market but the most environmentally friendly as well," said AutoTRADER.ca Managing Editor, Michael Bettencourt. "For its ability to haul the family without using their weight in fuel, the Chrysler Pacifica is a natural choice for Top Minivan."
Both Chrysler Pacifica and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid are proudly Canadian-made at the award-winning Windsor Assembly Plant (WAP), alongside the Dodge Grand Caravan. FCA invented the minivan segment more than 30 years ago and remains the dominant player, with nearly 70 percent of full-size minivans sold last year in Canada built at WAP.
"To have Chrysler Pacifica win back-to-back awards from the AutoTRADER.ca judges is further validation of the innovation and leadership we maintain in the minivan segment," said Reid Bigland, President, and CEO, FCA Canada. "We are proud of how our minivans, including the segment-first Pacifica Hybrid, continue to raise the bar in terms of the style, versatility, and technology possible in a vehicle that is perfectly suited for Canadian families."
This 2018 AutoTRADER.ca Top Pick award is only the latest for Chrysler Pacifica, which remains the most awarded minivan of both 2016 and 2017. Other accolades from this year include North American Utility of the Year, Best New Large Utility Vehicle from the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada, 2018 Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buys and the Best Car to Buy nod for Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid from Green Car Reports.
