March 15, 2024 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Chrysler Pacifica, the most awarded minivan over the last seven years with more than 175 honors and industry accolades, is adding a significant recognition to the Chrysler brand’s list of achievements. U.S. News & World Report today unveiled the 2024 Best Cars for Families awards, recognizing the 2024 Chrysler Pacifica as the Best Minivan for Families.

“The 2024 Best Cars for Families winners offer a number of safety features and a comfortable ride for all passengers, making them ideal for daily commutes or family adventures,” said Liz Opsitnik, executive editor, U.S. News.

Chrysler Pacifica earned the vehicle’s first award from U.S News in the Best Minivan for Families category on the strength of family-friendly features, including the most standard safety features in its segment, available all-wheel-drive (AWD) capability paired with Pacifica’s class-exclusive Stow ‘n Go seating and an available FamCAM interior camera, which offers a bird’s-eye view of rear-facing child-seat occupants. Pacifica was also first with available Amazon Fire TV integrated into the Uconnect Theater System.

The Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid, the first hybrid minivan, delivers 82 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe), an all-electric range of 32 miles and a total range of 520 miles. The Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid can also help charge the battery when braking or stopping using the built-in regenerative braking technology. A Max Regeneration mode allows for even greater regenerative braking force to maximize efficiency and is noted via a cluster messaging icon to keep drivers aware of the increased system regeneration. Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid continues to represent the evolution of the Chrysler portfolio as the brand transitions to an all-new electrified future, as part of the Stellantis Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan to lead the way the world moves by delivering innovative, clean, safe and affordable mobility solutions.

The 2024 Best Cars for Families award criteria looks at each vehicle’s overall rating from the U.S. News Best Car Rankings to determine quality, incorporating elements like safety data, predicted reliability ratings, passenger and cargo space and the consensus opinion of the automotive press. The award methodology also considers the availability of tech features such as in-car wireless internet, teen driver controls, automatic emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert and hands-free cargo doors. The winners were selected based on the highest composite score in each of the nine vehicle categories.
