Chrysler Pacifica: Family Car of the Year


The Chrysler Pacifica has continuously proved that minivans are not dead, but rather a lucrative part of the car market. The 2019 Chrylser Pacifica added multiple laurels to its wreath when it was named by Cars.com as their pick for the 'Family Car of the Year' and when it became IIHS's 'Top Safety Pick' for the year.

After a successful year with the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica, the manufacturers are back with their new and improved 2020 Chrysler Pacifica. A sleek exterior design, an interior that packs together comfort and entertainment for everyone in the family, and with passenger safety as their top priority, the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica is a very strong contender for being the 'Family Car of the Year', the second year running.
