How do vehicles become staples for a company? The automotive industry has clear indicators that highlight when a vehicle is doing well. Aside from the obvious sales, imitation from other brands as well as awards won are what separates one vehicle from another. In 2021, no vehicle regardless of segment can boast more dominance like the Chrysler Pacifica. The Pacifica has done a number on the minivan segment in ways that are preposterous. The latest distinctions come as no surprise. 

Chrysler Earns Another Award

Take for example the truth that other brands simply have discontinued building minivans to compete against the Pacifica. Other automanufactors aren’t trying to create a minivan that can compete, they flat out refuse to even try. In terms of sales, for years the Chrysler Pacifica has won customers over by mind blowing margins and the remarkable award count has never been seen before. Most recently, the Pacifica received its first refresh for the 2021 model year. Those upgrades helped the Pacifica receive more attention. 

Kelley Blue Book has named the Chrysler Voyager, the base trim of the Pacifica as the Best Minivan for the 5-Year Cost to Own award winner for 2021. This selection denotes the Chrysler minivan as an option that rewards owners with a prized vehicle at a lower cost with the added benefit of a low maintenance for the driver. The entry-level Pacifica was rebranded as the Chrysler Voyager, invoking the nameplate of the former minivan that once represented the top-end minivan for the Chrysler brand and has already earned some respect and admiration from reviews at KBB.

Why the Pacifica Is So Beloved

The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica has a solid reputation, scoring a 9.5 out of 10 rating from Car and Driver. The Pacifica minivan has a plethora of cargo space, vastly important for customers that use this minivan as an all-purpose vehicle. The second and third-row seating still entirely folds into the floor to provide even more space for owners. The Chrysler Pacifica took home another distinction in April 2021 earning AutoGuide’s Family Vehicle of the Year. Out of 100 new models for this award, narrowed down to 34 vehicles before ending up as the prize winner in just six categories. When speaking about the Pacifica, the AutoGuide editors had this to say.

“The Pacifica is the latest evolution of the origins of the species. This made-in-Canada people-mover carries the spirit of the original Caravan, loaded with practical, family-friendly features. It invented the segment and continues to do so by offering (features) like Stow ‘N Go seating even on the all-wheel-drive model when its competitors can’t even figure out how to make their middle row of seats disappear,” said AutoGuide Editor Kyle Patrick.
