Recently, the popular automotive website, Cars.com gave the Chrysler Pacifica one of many honors, as it ranked it among the top-five family-friendly vehicles for this year. The publication sang the Pacifica’s praises for its generous seating space (perfect for social distancing), Uconnect Theater, as well as its optional sunroof options that give way for increased airflow.
As previously mentioned, the Pacifica gaining a spot among the top-five contenders is not the first time that the famous minivan has been recognized for its purposefulness for families. This year in April, PARENTS magazine gave the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid the honor of the 2020 Best Family Cars award. Additionally, the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica won the 2020 Best New Family Car award from Good Housekeeping (in partnership with Car and Driver) in the minivan category.
Cars.com made the list in tandem with its release of new survey data that spotlights parents’ decisions on safe transportation for back-to-school. According to the automotive site, as children returned to school, as many as 55 percent of parents will opt to drive their children to school rather than allowing them to use school buses or other means of public transportation. The website also has a survey that indicates that the number of parents are setting out to carpool with other parents is up by 22 percent.
“Back to school looks very different for families this year because of the ongoing pandemic,” said Jenni Newman, editor-in-chief, Cars.com. “Because of this, parents are turning to their personal vehicles as the best mode of transport for kids returning to in-person learning. The Chrysler Pacifica provides families spending more time in the car a comfortable escape with a spacious interior to carry extra supplies or snacks and digital features to entertain while traveling to-and-from school and beyond.”
The Pacifica rocks a standard seven and available eight-passenger seats with plenty of legroom. In the back seat area, there is also an optional Uconnect Theater that comes with built-in games and available WiFi, perfect for keeping the little kiddos occupied while waiting through those long drop-off lines. Moreover, there are available dual- and tri-pane automatic sunroof options that bring in that nice, fresh breeze at just a push of a button.
Stow n’ Go storage bins are located in the second-row, this makes way for passengers to use the extra space for items like textbooks and other important school supplies. The available Stow ‘n Vac also aids in cleaning up any messes made by the little ones. The Pacifica also makes other soccer moms jealous with its latest advanced safety features and security technology, with over 100 standard and optional gadgets to choose from, such as the five LATCH child seat configurations.
More family-centered features are on the way for the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica and are set to arrive in dealerships in the fourth quarter, some which include:
- More standard safety features that outnumbers any other vehicle in the automotive market.
- An optional and new all-wheel-drive (AWD) to aid in transporting children to school in various types of weather joined with the van’s class-exclusive Stow ‘Go seating.
- Four new games for the Uconnect Theater: Concentration, chess, Chrysler Says (later availability), and backgammon (later availability).
- A new FamCam interior camera that makes way for parents to monitor their children from their seats and even zoom in occupants.
- The first of its segment, USB Type C ports that charge devices up to four times faster than traditional USB outlets.
