2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Named “Best Eco Pick” by PARENTS Magazine

April 14th, 2020 by

PARENTS magazine named the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid as one of its Best Family Cars award winners, recognizing vehicles that are not only safe for families, but also fun to ride in as well. The most family-friendly minivan continues to reign supreme. With more than 130 automotive accolades and honors, the Chrysler Pacifica remains the most awarded minivan — now for four years in a row! 

PARENTS magazine determined its 2020 Best Family Cars award winners by evaluating crash-test ratings, test drives that examined technology features, braking, steering and more. Additionally, since this is PARENTS magazine, after all, the publication also has the contenders evaluated by a certified child passenger technician as well. Specifically, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid was deemed the “Best Eco Pick” by PARENTS magazine, with the Pacifica Hybrid shining as the first and only hybrid minivan on the market. 

The 2020 Pacifica Hybrid, manufactured and assembled at the Windsor Assembly Plant in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, offers buyers more than 80 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) thanks to its electric-only mode. Additionally, the 2020 Pacifica Hybrid also offers an all-electric range of more than 30 miles and a combined range that exceeds more than 500 miles. 

With more than 100 standard and available safety and security features, the Pacifica Hybrid is the perfect vehicle for parents that seek peace of mind behind the wheel. The minivan even allows for a child seat in each of the second-row captain’s chairs and two other additional child seats in the third row. 

It also certainly helps that the Pacifica offers the most advanced back seat entertainment system in the form of its Uconnect Theater that includes two 10-inch seatback touchscreen displays where children can play built-in games, and watch and stream videos. Some of the games include Are We There Yet? And the License Plate Game, perfect for families on the road. Seating capacity for up to seven passengers makes the Pacifica Hybrid the perfect vehicle for a family road trip. Other functionality features to enjoy include hands-free sliding doors — making for easy entry and exit — and a hands-free liftgate. 

The minivan’s segment first hybrid vehicle is powered by a Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) designed dual-motor eFlite electrically variable transmission (EVT) that’s paired with a modified variant of the automaker’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 gasoline engine. Drivers don’t need to switch between electric and hybrid modes, as the Pacifica Hybrid is engineered to offer a seamless driving experience. Chrysler now offers Chrysler Pacifica Family Pricing to qualified buyers in order to make things financially easier for all families looking to get behind the wheel of a trusty and comfortable Pacifica minivan.
