The all-new, made-in-Canada, Chrysler Pacifica has been named a 2017 AutoTRADER.ca Top Pick for Minivan.
These inaugural awards come from one of Canada’s largest and most respected automotive portals and were decided by a roster of 16 top automotive journalists. 

All vehicles currently on sale to Canadians were considered in 13 categories, with the all-new Chrysler Pacifica earning top spot amongst its minivan peers based on measures such as value, innovation, performance, comfort, technology and ultimate desirability.

“Chrysler’s attempt to reinvigorate the minivan market is an admirable one,” said autoTRADER.ca Managing Editor Michael Bettencourt, “especially given the execution of the all-new Chrysler Pacifica. Using the best of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles group’s minivan tech, including Stow 'n Go seats, Chrysler has evolved the minivan into a stylish family cruiser with great driving dynamics and thoughtful features to keep kids entertained on long trips.”
The all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica - and coming, industry-exclusive Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid - revolutionize their segment with nearly 40 new minivan-firsts. Both are built at the award-winning Windsor Assembly Plant (WAP), alongside the Dodge Grand Caravan. After creating the minivan segment more than 30 years ago, FCA now boasts an unmatched 115 minivan innovations, with 70 per cent of the full-size minivans sold last year in Canada built at WAP.
“At FCA, we are proud to have over three decades of experience building minivans that fit and enhance the lives of Canadian families,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, FCA Canada. “This autoTRADER.ca Top Pick award is reputable, third-party validation that our all-new, Canadian-made Chrysler Pacifica has again raised the bar for what a minivan can deliver.
Pacifica leads the pack with more than 100 standard and available safety and security features, plus class-leading ride and handling. Its array of available comfort and convenience technologies includes the Stow 'n Vac integrated vacuum, handsfree sliding doors and liftgate and redesigned Stow 'n Go seating. Plus, it’s the most technologically equipped vehicle of its kind, offering features like the exclusive Uconnect Theatre rear-seat entertainment system with two 10-inch HD touchscreen displays, device connectivity, easy-to-use built-in apps, games and more.
This award is only the latest for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, which was also recently named “Best Minivan of 2016” in the Cars.com “Ultimate Minivan Challenge,” recognized on Wards 10 Best User Experience List and rating a Top Safety Pick+ for 2016 by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
