The Windsor built, all-new, Canadian-made 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has been named the ‘Best New Large Utility Vehicle’ by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada.
The award comes from the voting results of “Test Fest,” a multi-day event which is part of the AJAC Canadian Car of the Year program, attended by more than 60 expert automobile journalists from across the country.
Held in late October at Ontario’s Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, the 29th annual event saw journalists drive and vote on 34 new or significantly changed vehicles back-to-back on the same day, under the same conditions, on closed and public roads to decide on the best-of-the-best in eight categories.
“To have our Canadian-made 2017 Chrysler Pacifica recognized as ‘Best New Large Utility Vehicle’ by the expert members of AJAC is a top-level endorsement,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, FCA Canada. “Already this year’s most awarded minivan, this is yet another feather in Pacifica’s cap and further proof that it is unsurpassed in meeting Canadian family’s needs for a vehicle which delivers the best in utility, features, technology, style and safety.”
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica now competes for the overall title of 2017 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year, announced February 16th, 2017, during the Canadian International Autoshow in Toronto.
