The Best New Family Car is the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica

In an April announcement, Good Housekeeping magazine declared the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica as the best new family car in the minivan segment. The announcement came after the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica was unveiled at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show. Flaunting all its bells and whistles and, the standard safety systems every family deserves, the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is truly the minivan with it all. But don't listen to us, just look at the facts.

The Pacifica has earned over 130 industry honors since its introduction and this award is the Pacifica's third consecutive award from Good Housekeeping. Today, let's take a look at Good Housekeeping's award process and see why the Pacifica ranked number one.

The Process
For their annual Best New Family Car award, Good Housekeeping works in partnership with Car and Driver Magazine. Together they screen hundreds of new vehicles hitting the market each year and analyze each vehicle's features to identify the 15 best-in-class vehicles.

The Most Capable Minivan
Now that it is equipped with an all-new all-wheel drive system, the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is officially America's most capable minivan. And, it's the only minivan to offer both AWD and Stow 'n Go seating.

The new AWD system enhances traction for a variety of road conditions. From dry desert roads to snowy mountain trails, the 2021 Pacifica has the capability to get you safely across any terrain. And, it will do so automatically — the Pacifica's AWD system engages at any speed without the need for any driver input.

The Most Standard Safety Features in the Industry
In case you missed it: The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica offers the most standard safety features in the industry. The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica delivers 97 standard and 14 new-as-standard safety features.

Plus, it illuminates the road ahead with new LED lights and actively works to protect those outside the cabin, too. This Pacifica is equipped with new Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking.

The Most Luxurious Interior
The Pacifica's offering of the most standard safety features in the industry is reason enough for parents to choose it as their next family car. But the Pacifica doesn't stop at superior safety systems, it excels at interior delights, too.

The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica features a new top-of-the-line Pacifica Pinnacle model, which offers the most luxurious interior in its class. The Pacifica Pinnacle model features Caramel Nappa leather seats embellished with quilted side bolsters and perforated seat inserts and seat backs on all three rows for unparalleled comfort and support.

Plus, the Pacifica Pinnacle model includes a unique set of removable lumbar comfort pillows for the second-row captain's chairs, which match the quilted style and Caramel color of the leather seats to add an extra splash of comfort and style for backseat passengers.

The Most Technologically Equipped
Yes, it's that too. The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is also the most technologically equipped vehicle of its kind. The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica comes equipped with the all-new 10.1-inch touchscreen. This all-new touchscreen is part of the new Uconnect 5 system and its inclusion in the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica marks the first time it is offered in a North American FCA vehicle.

The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica's all-new touchscreen is the largest standard touchscreen in its class and is nearly 20% larger than the screen it replaces. This new touchscreen enables processing speeds up to five times faster than the previous generation.

...and, it's got eyes in the back of its head
To keep drivers in-the-know, the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica includes an all-new FamCAM interior camera. This new camera gives Pacifica drivers a clear view of all the action happening behind them. The new FamCAM projects a best-in-class, high-definition image of the cabin and includes such segment-exclusive features as a clear view of rear-facing child seat occupants, a split view display, and a unique "zoom-to-seat" feature.

Every year, Good Housekeeping's 2020 Best New Family Car awards recognize 15 best-in-class vehicles. To see the full list of 2020 award winners check out the May 2020 edition of Good Housekeeping.
