“The Pacifica has turned the minivan segment on its head, appealing to a broader range of image-conscious family buyers than ever before. But it’s done so in a way that makes family motoring fun again. The 2019 Pacifica had already impressed as a runner-up in last year’s CarBuzz Awards, but meaningful updates for the 2020 and 2021 model years, including the addition of all-wheel-drive (AWD), the ultra-luxurious Pinnacle model, and refreshed styling, made the Pacifica impossible to ignore this time around,”  said CarBuzz Managing Editor Roger Biermann. “All-weather ability in the form of the Pacifica AWD, world-beating gas mileage from the Pacifica Hybrid, and the industry’s best infotainment system found in a minivan, courtesy of Uconnect 5, were all key factors in awarding this year’s winner. There is simply no other family car with this breadth of ability, technology, and features, making the 2021 Pacifica a worthy winner in our eyes.”

With these words, it’s easy to see why CarBuzz selected the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica as their Family Fun winner for 2020. When it comes to entertainment for all—drivers included—this minivan does it all. The award-winning Chrysler Pacifica is now the most awarded minivan over the last four years, garnering over 140 awards, honors, and industry accolades in that time frame. Say goodbye to boring road trips and hello to never wanting to leave the car.

Family Fun and Road Trips to last: 2021 Chrysler Pacifica

Now that we touched on CarBuzz’s reasoning for giving the Pacifica its top Family Fun honors let’s take a look into what makes it so special. 

The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica differs quite a lot from its predecessor models. It was intentionally redesigned to sport a more refined, modern, and athletic aesthetic, borrowing highly sought after utility vehicle look cues. Pair the new refined look and it’s cool, family-friendly features, and that spells winner. Available as an upgrade, buyers can add a rear-seat Uconnect Theater for back seat passengers who enjoy gaming and video entertainment. But it doesn’t stop there. Chrysler also added classic games like chess, backgammon, License Plate Game, Are We There Yet, and more to help with those long rides.

With these features, the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica easily becomes the most tech advanced minivan in its class and provides the largest touchscreen infotainment system in its class. Amazon Alexa joins the party in the new Uconnect 5 infotainment system and operates five times faster than the system that preceded it.

Also featured in the Chrysler Pacifica are the following:

  • FanCAM – an interior camera that gives front seat passengers the ability to monitor child seat occupants in back rows.
  • USB Type-C ports – high-speed standard outlets that allow devices to be charged at 4x normal speed.

The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica also provides top-of-the-line, premium quilted Nappa Caramel leather options via the Pinnacle trim. It also features a minivan first—matching second-row lumbar comfort pillows.
