2021 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Gets Its Props From Good Housekeeping For Best Hybrid Minivan

 

The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Gains Another Award

Last week, we discussed how the Chrysler Pacifica won PARENTS magazine Best Family Car for 2021. This week, it appears that the minivan has already snagged yet another award for its 2021 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid model. This automotive win marks the fourth consecutive honor from Good Housekeeping for the beloved family vehicle, which makes it the most awarded car in its segment for the last five years.

In total, Good Housekeeping selected eight vehicles for Best New Hybrid Cars for 2021, with Pacifica standing out for its intuitive features and roomy interior. The full list is shown on the lifestyle website’s page at GoodHousekeeping.com.

In order to determine the best hybrid makes and models, the Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI) went through many hours and thousands of miles of vehicle testing until it narrowed down its contenders. Once the top qualifiers were selected, Good Housekeeping sought the assistance of their friends at Car and Driver to access notes regarding performance and other features in order to make their final resolutions.

For the minivan segment, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the first hybrid vehicle to enter the market and is currently the only plug-in hybrid minivan. This car provides over more than 80 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe), a fully electrified range of over 30 miles and a total range of over 500 miles.

The Hybrid minivan involves an inventive dual-motor eFlite electrically variable transmission (EVT) joined with a specially reformed version of the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 gasoline engine that provides peace of mind to customers who otherwise might be worried about having enough range. This family-friendly vehicle is made to bring a harmonious driving experience and doesn’t require the driver to manually shift between electric and hybrid modes.

One of the reasons the Pacifica Hybrid continues to be a fan-favorite among families is because it has more than 100 standard and available safety features, which make way for child seats to fit in each of the second-row captain’s chairs, alongside two extra child seats in the third section. This seven-passenger minivan encompasses a highly developed entertainment system that has available Uconnect Theater. This technological system comprises two 10.1-inch seatback touchscreens, children can use this to watch and stream videos and have 13 built-in games to choose from, like Are We There Yet?, the License Plate Game, Concentration, and chess.

Chrysler’s Pacifica Hybrid has been called the most versatile and accommodating plug-in hybrid on the market, as the minivan can lodge up to seven passengers, with second-row captain’s chairs and has its highlighting third-row Stow ‘n Go seating, for extra storage space. Added functionality includes hands-free sliding doors and a liftgate.
