You have heard a lot about the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica from the standard features to the newest ad campaign. Now it’s time for us to tell you that the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has been recognized by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety as a Top Safety Pick+. Keep reading for more information.
To earn a Top Safety Pick+ rating a vehicle must have Automatic Emergency Braking technology and achieve the top rating of “good” for crashworthiness tests. These tests include side impact with a large SUV or pickup truck, moderate-offset frontal impact, small offset frontal impact, roof-deformation consistent with a rollover, and rear collision capable of inducing whiplash. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has an available AEB system and more than 100 available safety and security features.
“Having sold more than 14 million minivans since inventing the segment in 1983, we know what’s important to minivan buyers,” says Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – FCA North America. “The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is the sum of all the knowledge we’ve accumulated about minivans and the people who are proud to own them. Among the things we know – safety is one of the most important purchase reasons and achieving the Top Safety Pick+ rating helps to establish Pacifica as the segment leader.”
“As AEB capability proliferates across our vehicle lineup, we are committed to using sensor-fusion technology,” says Mike Dahl, Head of Vehicle Safety and Regulatory Compliance. “It is a significant stepping stone in our exploration of autonomous vehicle development, the next horizon for occupant safety.”
