2020 Chrysler Pacifica is the Best Minivan to Buy

January 3rd, 2020 by

The Chrysler Pacifica is lauded by automotive experts for something better than any of the other minivans on the market. Often sold as a peoplemover and family vehicles, the Pacifica offers flexibility that crossover SUVs can’t match. With a plug-in option, an impressive infotainment system, and plenty of room, the 2020 Pacifica makes perfect sense. Not only is the Pacifica better than plenty of the crossover SUVs available in today’s market, it’s also better than the other minivans too. Here’s why the 2020 Pacifica is considered the Best Minivan to Buy 2020, according to The Car Connection. 

This isn’t the model’s first rodeo as the best minivan, as the publication awarded it the same distinction as the Best Car to Buy 2017 and the Best Minivan each year since. Additionally, the folks over at Green Car Reports also called the Pacifica plug-in hybrid variant the Best Car to Buy in 2019. Unlike the boxy Grand Caravan, the Pacifica is sleek with a luxurious interior — including leather, warm touches of wood, and plenty of modern digital displays. The Pacifica is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and offers 287 horsepower and is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Pacifica Hybrid, on the other hand, is powered by the same V6 engine but is reworked to function with batteries and motors that make up the plug-in hybrid system. 

Minivans should be all about function and the 2020 Pacifica doesn’t disappoint. While other minivans offer sliding second-row seats, the Pacifica can make its middle row disappear thanks to the Stow ‘n Go system — in fact, even the third-row can be folded as well. With all seats folded down, the Pacifica makes for one of the world’s best-looking cargo vehicles thanks to its whopping 140.5 cubic-feet of cargo room. Crash test scores have also been great thanks to the standard automatic emergency braking feature. Of course, fuel economy numbers are exceptional with a combined 22 miles per gallon on the gasoline-powered Pacifica and an even more impressive combined 30 miles per gallon on the Pacifica Hybrid. 

Optional features are also nothing to mess with as the Pacifica offers buyers a 20-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, a panoramic roof, leather upholstery, automatic climate control, cooled seats, and a rear-seat Uconnect Theater entertainment system. Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto come standard as part of the Uconnect infotainment system. Minivan sales have stalled in the past few years, but Chrysler is the only brand that asserts its lineup boldly and shows consumers why minivans are deserving of a place on every family’s garage.
