The Windsor-built 2020 Chrysler Pacifica has been named winner of the best minivan category in the annual awards handed out by autoTrader.ca.

“The Chrysler Pacifica is truly impressive and the minivan segment is highly underrated in general,” said Jodi Lai, editor-in-chief of Autotrader.ca. “Its luxurious interior and family-friendly features makes it stand out, but the fact that it’s available with an excellent plug-in hybrid powertrain is truly icing on the cake.”

The Pacifica was one of three FCA vehicles named winners in the annual autoTRADER.ca awards — voted on by more than 20 automotive journalists from across Canada based on 12 different weighted criteria.

The new 2020 Jeep Gladiator was named best mid-size truck, while the 2020 Ram 1500 was awarded as best full-size truck and best overall truck.

“Trucks are such an important part of the Canadian automotive landscape and the fact that FCA won all the truck categories in the 2020 autoTRADER.ca Awards is a huge accomplishment,” Lai said.

“Our jury of more than 20 automotive experts recognized FCA’s dedication to the truck segment and both Jeep and Ram went above and beyond what’s expected with the Gladiator and the 1500 to create outstanding pickups.”

The jurors considered every new vehicle available on the Canadian marketplace, which totals more than 350 models across all nameplates.
