Last week at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit the winners of the 2017 North American Utility of the year were announced. This award is treated by many to be one of the world’s most prominent based on its distinct blend of automotive journalists who serve as the voting jurors.
“When we first introduced the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica just one year ago, we believed that we had created the perfect formula for today’s busy families,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and Fiat, FCA – North America. “But it’s the recognition from our customers and respected opinion leaders like the NACTOY jury that helps to reinforce Pacific’s status in the marketplace as the no-compromises minivan, and highlights what a great job the entire team has done in developing, building and selling the all-new Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid.”
This is the first time in history that a minivan has earned this prestigious award and who better to win it than the original creator of the minivan over 30 years ago. About 20 years ago the FCA US LLC minivans won North American Car of the Year honors, this was the only other time that a minivan has won an award from the North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the year jury.
Over the past 30 years the FCA US has revolutionize the minivan segment with an impressive 78 innovations from the first five minivan generations and adding 37 minivan first to its case with the release of the all-new Chrysler Pacifica. Also claiming the industry’s first minivan available as a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.
