The Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI) worked with Car and Driver, the leading authority on all things automotive, to screen more than 100 new vehicles, narrowing it down to the top 25 for further scrutiny. After driving the year's new vehicles on more than 3,000 miles of test tracks and open roads, engineers from the GHI Labs and consumer testers rated cars on safety, value, handling, design, comfort and technology.

“The Chrysler Pacifica is by definition a one-of-a-kind, no-compromise family vehicle," said Laurie Jennings, Deputy Editor & Director of the Good Housekeeping Institute. “Offering all the qualities of the well-received gas model, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid displays substantial real-world electric range for most driver’s daily commutes, great fuel economy when operating as a hybrid and plenty of room for families.”

With more than 100 available safety and security features, the Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment system and a full array of comfort and convenience technologies, the Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid are no-compromise minivans ideally suited for today's families.
