In addition to the award the 2018 Chrysler 300 nabbed, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid was named the Best Car to Buy by Green Car Reports.
“The Chrysler Pacifica wins because it’s a one-of-a-kind vehicle: the sole seven-seat minivan with a plug-in hybrid powertrain sold in the U.S. this year,” said John Voelcker, senior editor at Green Car Reports. “Not only does it offer all the virtues of the well-received Chrysler Pacifica, it offers substantial real-world electric range – 30 miles or most in most cases – and much better fuel economy when operating as a hybrid.”
While being the first creator of the minivan 35 years ago, the Chrysler brand doesn’t disappoint in the minivan segment and 2017 was definitely the year of many “firsts.” According to the FCA US, the introduction of the Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid adds 37 minivan firsts to its portfolio for an unprecedented total of 115 innovations in the minivan segment, including the industry’s first minivan available as a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle.
