AutoPacific 2017 Ideal Vehicle Awards Go To Chrysler Pacifica and Jeep Grand Cherokee


AutoPacific, an automotive marketing research firm, awards the Ideal Vehicle Award every year. The Ideal Vehicle Awards are based on the responses of over 65,000 owners of new cars manufactured in 2016 and 2017. Owners were surveyed after 90 days of ownership and are asked what issues they had experienced and what, if any, changes they would make to their new vehicle in 15 different areas.

Chrysler Pacifica remains most-awarded Minivan

Already the most-awarded minivan in the industry, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has earned the Ideal Vehicle Award from AutoPacific.
