The 2023-24 Chrysler Pacifica Minivan has recently been recognized for its outstanding safety features, earning the prestigious TOP SAFETY PICK award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This accolade reflects the Pacifica’s commitment to providing a secure driving experience for its occupants, further solidifying its position as a reliable family vehicle.

To attain the TOP SAFETY PICK designation in 2023, the Pacifica underwent rigorous testing, meeting specific criteria set by the IIHS. The vehicle excelled in various assessments, including the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, and original moderate overlap front tests. Additionally, it achieved an acceptable or good rating in the updated side test. The Pacifica also boasts standard headlights across all trims that received an acceptable or good rating, contributing to its comprehensive safety profile. Moreover, the minivan features a front crash prevention system with advanced or superior ratings in the daytime vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.

While the Pacifica received recognition as a TOP SAFETY PICK, it’s worth noting that there is a higher-tier designation, TOP SAFETY PICK+, which requires even more stringent criteria. To achieve this premium safety rating, a vehicle must earn a good rating in the updated side test and advanced or superior ratings in both daytime and nighttime vehicle-to-pedestrian tests. The Pacifica, with its acceptable rating in the updated side test, falls into the TOP SAFETY PICK category. It meets the essential safety standards with its advanced-rated front crash prevention system in both daytime and nighttime pedestrian evaluations, along with acceptable-rated headlights for all trims.

The acknowledgment from the IIHS underscores Chrysler’s commitment to prioritizing safety in its Pacifica Minivan. Families looking for a vehicle that combines functionality with a top-notch safety profile can confidently consider the 2023-24 Chrysler Pacifica, knowing that it has met the rigorous safety standards set by one of the most reputable institutions in automotive safety.
