Chrysler Pacifica and Jeep Grand Cherokee L Named to Wards 10 Best User Experience List

November 1st, 2021 by

Editors over at Wards continue to be enamored with the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, naming it to the 2021 Wards 10 Best User Experience List. The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica also earned a spot on the list. Both vehicles were deemed worthy of the award because they’re both equipped with the latest-and-greatest Uconnect 5 infotainment system. Consumers can enjoy greater connectivity, improved personalization, and rich content from the most advanced Uconnect system yet. 


“Uconnect 5 is designed to be the most advanced in-car technology we have ever produced, and we’re honored that Wards has selveted the system for two spots on their 10 Best User Experience list. We are dedicated to providing all occupants with greater connectivity, easy-to-use content and innovative features to seamlessly elevate the automobile to a third living space,” said Mamatha Chamarthi, Head of Software Business and Product Management. 


2021 Chrysler Pacifica


Wards editors are tasked with evaluating the overall user experience of a total of 25 vehicles — only the best make the cut! Ratings are based on infotainment features, user friendliness, vehicle connectivity, information/displays, materials, voice control, sound systems, and overall value. Consumers out there are accustomed to expecting nothing but the best from the Chrysler Pacifica, and the 2021 model is no exception. Wards experts cited the top-tier Pacifica Pinnacle trim has everything anyone could want in a minivan. Voice command is responsive, while phone pairing is quick and easy. The Chrysler Pacifica Pinnacle comes standard with virtually every driver-assistance technology under the sun (available as upgrades on other trims). Additionally, the Chrysler Pacifica comes standard with the largest-in-class 10.1-inch touchscreen display, as well as USB Type C ports that allows both the driver and passengers to charge devices up to four times faster than standard USB ports. The Pacifica model also offers buyers a class-exclusive Uconnect Theater system that comes complete with built-in games and apps. 


2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L


The all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee L is no slouch as this marks the second time Wards singles out the model within its debut year. Earlier this quarter (Q3 2021), Wards deemed the Grand Cherokee L as worthy of a slot on its Wards 10 Best Interiors list. This time around, the Grand Cherokee L is highlighted thanks to the fact that it sports the brand’s most advanced in-car technology, counting on new content, improved customization, and most important faster operating speeds. Uconnect 5 conveniently keeps riders connected, engaged and informed while the driver keeps their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. 

“For 2021, the Jeep Grand Cherokee L gains a third row and delivers a spectacular user experience, from the brightly configured digital instrument cluster and neatly integrated user-friendly touchscreen to the outstanding driver-assistance technologies and dreamy optional McIntosh sound system. And the brain behind it all is Stellantis’ UConnect 5 infotainment architecture, which delivers five times the computing power of the previous generation,” said Wards Intelligence Principal Analyst Bob Gritzinger. 

Buyers can expect an available rear-seat monitoring camera system that projects best-in-class high-definition images on the Grand Cherokee L. Additional next-generation conveniences include a night vision camera, head-up display, an advanced L2 automated driving system, drowsy driver detection, and a standard 10.25-inch digital cluster with over two dozen menu options. Other optional-yet-luxurious amenities include available seat back massage for front row passengers and some ambient lighting with a five-color selection to set the mood.
