The 2023 Chrysler Pacifica recently earned a top rating in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) latest crash safety test. Known for its reliable ratings, the IIHS serves as a good measure for consumers to know how safe a vehicle is. With the latest IIHS report, the Pacifica comes out on top earning the highest ‘Good’ rating thanks to its advanced safety features. Chrysler has been focused on EVs, introducing a new EV sedan most recently but, despite this, safety and reliability remain a priority for the automaker. We’ll take a closer look at the IIHS’s safety test and see how well the 2023 Chrysler Pacifica performed. 

2023 Chrysler Pacifica Earns Highest Safety Rating

The 2023 Chrysler Pacifica recently earned a top safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The IIHS serves as an independent nonprofit organization that aims to reduce deaths, injuries, and property damage from motor vehicles. For 2023, the IIHS raised its evaluation standards to include a stricter side impact crash test, a more extensive automatic emergency braking test, and new headlight requirements. Vehicles like the Chrysler Pacifica had to undergo real-world scenarios to determine their reliability and safety. Throughout it all, advanced safety features earned the minivan a ‘Good’ safety rating, the highest score possible.  

The 2023 Chrysler Pacifica was put through several inspections and tests, including a driver-side impact test and a passenger-side impact test. There was also a moderate overlap front impact test. Thanks to safety features like automatic emergency braking, the Pacifica had no trouble scoring well in the IIHS’s tests. Owners will be happy to know that other safety features like forward-collision warnings, lane departure warnings, and a blind spot monitoring system help ensure they are safe on the road.  

Along with safety, the 2023 Pacifica serves as a spacious minivan with surprisingly good performance. The minivan is equipped with a 287 horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine that offers impressive acceleration and control thanks to the Pacifica’s all-wheel drive. In terms of the interior cabin, the Pacifica offers owners a total storage capacity of 140 cubic feet with the second row folded. With seating up to eight, families can rest assured that the minivan has all bases covered. At a starting MSRP of $39,615 (plus destination fee), the 2023 Chrysler Pacifica proves to be one of the most reliable minivans available offering impeccable safety and surprisingly good performance.
