Chrysler Pacifica Named Best Minivan to Buy for Fourth Year Running

Three Fiat-Chrysler models recently earned recognition from the online magazine The Car Connection, winning top scores in their respective categories. The most notable win was by the Chrysler Pacifica, which was named Best Minivan to Buy for the fourth year in a row. The two other winners were the Jeep® Grand Cherokee (Best SUV) and Ram 1500 (Best Truck). Both were first-time recipients of this award.

The editors of The Car Connection drove over 100 vehicles in order to choose the best on the market, rating models based on their ability to meet the wide range of needs car shoppers have. From fuel economy and safety to value and overall affordability, the editors took everything into account.

“The Chrysler Pacifica sets the bar for minivans with its flexible interior and its crisp styling,” said Martin Padgett, editorial director of Internet Brands Automotive, publishers of The Car Connection. “The unsung hero in the lineup is the plug-in hybrid, with its excellent fuel economy and forward-thinking powertrain.”

The editors also noted that the Grand Cherokee scored particularly well when it came to performance both on and off the road, including the Trailhawk and Trackhawk editions, while the Ram 1500 won because it has better capabilities than the competition. And, for the editors, there’s little point in buying a truck if it can’t tow and haul like the Ram 1500.

Chrysler Teams Up with Disney for a Toy Story Pacifica Promotion

The toys are back this summer with the release of Toy Story 4. To honor the return of these beloved characters, Chrysler and Pixar’s Toy Story teamed up for an ad campaign promoting the Chrysler Pacifica.

Woody, Buzz, and all their pals appear in a new Pacifica commercial. After the human passengers exit the van, the toys spring to life and engage in a spirited dance party. There are familiar faces, such as the long-lost Bo Peep, along with new additions to the franchise, such as the spork-based Forky. It’s a fun way to promote the spirit of the Pacifica minivan.

Toy Story teaming up with Chrysler to promote the Pacifica shows off the space and features that the Pacifica provides, making it the perfect family vehicle. You can watch the Toy Story Pacifica promotion on the automaker’s YouTube channel.

In Toy Story 4, Woody learns what it truly means to be a toy when his new kid, Bonnie, creates a new plaything out of arts and crafts in school. His journey will reunite him with familiar faces, while introducing some new characters.
