The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, which is the industry’s first hybrid minivan, took one of the top prizes as the Family Car of Texas.
“As the industry’s first electrified hybrid minivan, Chrysler has taken not only this family vehicle but the entire plug-in electric class to a whole new level,” said Nic Phillips, President of TAWA. “The Pacifica is loaded with high-tech features that make it easy to connect, charge and maximize the efficiency of the vehicle, not to mention offering the safety features and technology that every family deserves.”
In total, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid took home four awards. In addition to the Family Car of Texas, the Pacifica Hybrid also was named the Minivan of Texas, the Green Vehicle of Texas and the Best New Feature: Hybrid Powertrain.
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid builds upon the innovation and versatility, technology and bold styling of the redesigned minivan by offering an advanced hybrid powertrain that achieves 84 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in electric-only mode and 33 miles of all-electric range.
These latest honors from the Texas Auto Writers Association add to the previous awards won by the Chrysler Pacifica, and strengthen the Chrysler Pacifica’s claim of being the most awarded minivan of the year.
