2017 Chrysler Pacifica earns top safety rating
All-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivan has been named a Top Safety Pick+ for 2016 from the U.S. the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has earned a rating of Top Safety Pick+ for 2016 from the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
The achievement marks yet another minivan milestone for FCA US LLC, which pioneered the segment more than 30 years ago.
While the all-new Pacifica achieves top scores for crashworthiness, the best safety features are those that help drivers avoid collisions.
The Chrysler Pacifica’s Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system earns a rating of “superior,” the highest possible grade that IIHS awards for this technology.
The Pacifica’s system is called Forward Collision Warning-Plus. It features sensor-fusion technology, which combines the particular attributes of radar sensors and cameras for greater precision.
The system only responds when camera and radar agree that a frontal impact appears imminent.
System response comprises audible and visual driver warnings and/or AEB. No other minivan features sensor-fusion technology as competitive systems employ either cameras or radar sensors.
