Chrysler Pacifica Earns IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ Rating Once Again

2022 Chrysler Pacifica | Spirit Lake, IA

For the second year in a row, the Chrysler Pacifica minivan has earned a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This is the highest safety rating a vehicle can get from the institute.

To achieve this high rating, the Pacifica earned the top “good” rating in all six crashworthiness tests. This includes the difficult small-overlap front tests along with roof strength and other tests. IIHS also considers a vehicle’s crash avoidance technology. The Pacifica comes standard with an advanced automatic emergency braking system. The IIHS rated this system as “superior.”

These safety ratings continue to prove that the Chrysler Pacifica is one of the best minivans available today. It is currently the only minivan that comes standard with second-row Stow ‘n Go seating and the option of all-wheel drive.

All Pacifica models also come standard with Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Blind-Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Lane-Keeping Assist.

Along with its strong reputation for safety, the Chrysler Pacifica stands out with its excellent interior amenities. The base trim comes standard with a 10.1-inch infotainment touch screen, tri-zone climate control, power sliding side doors, a power liftgate, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat.
