The new 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is the winner of the CarBuzz 2020 Family Fun Award! This marks 140 honors and industry accolades for the Pacifica according to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).
What is the Family Fun Award you may ask? Well, it’s an award given to the vehicle CarBuzz rates as the ‘best’ when it comes to entertaining the entire family. The Pacifica, a runner-up in last year’s Family Fun Award nominees, takes home top honors this year.
What were the qualities that bested the competition? CarBuzz Managing Editor, Roger Biermann, said, “…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.”
He went on to say, “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.”
This year’s runner-up was also a member of the FCA family. The 2021 Dodge Durango was one of three finalists along with the Pacifica. With newer, more aggressive exterior styling, new interior styling with a driver-centric cockpit, the largest in class 10.1-inch touch screen with Uconnect 5, and 6 distinct models in an impressive lineup, the Durango should be a hit with families looking to get the most out of their vehicle.
