2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Today’s Parent Approved Seal
Posted on July 30, 2020
Manufacturers, dealers and consumers can make all sorts of claims about what a particular vehicle model can be used for. A midsize SUV, for example, can be claimed to be a family vehicle, a lifestyle vehicle, and aspirational vehicle or a comfortable and spacious commuter vehicle. But when it comes to minivans there's almost no disputing the fact they are first and foremost the ultimate in practical family mobility, and that's how they are always going to be judged against each other. That's why it's such a big deal the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid has now been awarded the coveted Today's Parent Approved seal.
About the Award
Today's Parent Approved is an editorial-driven, exhaustive product testing program carried out by what is one of the longest running and most respected media outlets in the country focusing on Canadian families. For a vehicle like the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid that's designed from the ground up as primarily a family vehicle, getting this particular seal of approval is a very significant achievement.
It's hard to overstate how much online reviews of items influence buyers of goods and services of all types these days, but as such resources become increasingly available, it's good knowing there's reliable companies out there providing consumers with the best of goods and services. With something such as the Parent Approved seal, consumers can be assured the product in question really is outstanding in its field as it's been put through its paces in both laboratory and real-world testing. To gain the Today's Parent Approved rating, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid had to pass what's been described as "exhaustive product testing," where it positively exceled in the three core categories of quality, ease-of-use and value for money.
About the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
The Pacifica Hybrid is still currently the only plug-in hybrid minivan on the market, which gives the Chrysler a big advantage over the competition. But there's far more to the ongoing success of the model than just its advanced powertrain as the Pacifica in all its forms is one of the most modern, advanced and family-friendly vehicles currently available. The combustion engine versions of the Pacifica already check all the boxes to make it an outstanding vehicle in its class. But the advanced PHEV powertrain with its estimated electric range of up to 53 kilometres, up to 911 kilometres of total range and an estimated 2.6 Le/100km (109 MPGe) in city driving takes the Chrysler to another level entirely.
Cara Smusiak, Executive Editor of Today's Parent Approved said of the Pacifica Hybrid, "Today's Parent Approved editors and parent testers were very impressed with the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. Our testing covered a wide range of features of this minivan, including the safety features, space for people and cargo, quality of finishes, the feel of the drive, the entertainment system and more. We also assessed how well this vehicle meets the day-to-day needs of families, whether they're installing car seats and lifting strollers in and out of the back, loading up hockey gear, or taking family road trips. And, of course, the remarkable fuel economy you get in a hybrid vehicle factored in significantly when it came to assessing the Pacifica Hybrid's overall value for money."
