Pacifica named best minivan by Popular Mechanics

The Windsor-made Chrysler Pacifica has been named best minivan in the annual Automotive Excellence Awards given out by magazine Popular Mechanics.

Editors at the magazine drove all of the competitors in the minivan class over the course of 2017 to select the winner. 

"The Pacifica looks sleek and low-slung without committing the unforgivable minivan sin of trying too hard," said Popular Mechanics editor Ezra Dyer in a news release.

The magazine specifically cited the Pacifica's ability to hide both its second and third rows as a key feature, along with FCA making an hybrid version available. 

The full list of Automotive Excellence Award winners can be found in the May 2017 issue of Popular Mechanics.
