WASHINGTON, June 24, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- U.S. News & World Report, publisher of Best Cars for the Money and Best Cars for Families, today announced that the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica debuted in the No. 1 position in the Best Minivans rankings. The Pacifica shares the No. 1 ranking with the 2016 Honda Odyssey, which has held the sole first place ranking for the last year.
"The minivan class is all about having the most comfortable, useful interior, and on that point the Pacifica delivers," says Jamie Page Deaton, managing editor of the U.S. News Best Car Rankings. "With features like Chrysler's innovative Stow 'n Go seating, the easy-to-use Uconnect infotainment system and plenty of space for the whole family, the Pacifica goes beyond the minivan basics and deserves to be at the top of the class."
"Minivans are enjoying a sales renaissance, and offer more safety, tech and innovation than ever before," adds Page Deaton. "New and redesigned models like the Pacifica and upcoming 2017 Honda Odyssey keep pushing the class benchmarks, which is great for consumers."
