2017 Chrysler Pacifica earns Top Safety Pick+ rating

By ,

The all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica keeps racking up the awards just a few months after its launch. 

Hot on the heels of its appearance in the Wards 10 Best User Experiences, the Pacifica earned a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

In particular, its Automatic Emergency Braking system got a rating of “superior,” the highest possible grade that IIHS awards for this technology.

“Having sold more than 14 million minivans since inventing the segment in 1983, we know what’s important to minivan buyers,” says Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands at FCA North America. “The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is the sum of all the knowledge we’ve accumulated about minivans and the people who are proud to own them. Among the things we know, safety is one of the most important purchase reasons, and achieving the Top Safety Pick+ rating helps to establish Pacifica as the segment leader.”
