2017 Pacifica Snags Three Awards From the Texas Auto Writers Association

Recently, the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) held the ‘Texas Auto Roundup,’ and the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica skated away with not one but three awards. It seems the excitement surrounding this suddenly cool minivan is a long way from dropping off.



The ‘Texas Auto Roundup’ brings over 50 automotive journalists together for a two-day event of demanding driving, after which the journalists voted for their favorite vehicles in a variety of categories. Of all the manufacturers present, FCA US won the most awards.

The three awards the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica won were:

  1. Family Car of Texas
  2. Minivan of Texas
  3. Best New Interior


“FCA US brought an all-star lineup with several cars impressing our journalists. However, the design, functionality and practicality of the new Chrysler Pacifica really stood out from all the Family Car contenders. It’s truly entertaining to drive with friends and family, offers numerous safety options, and leads the segment in styling, all the while playing to traditional strengths of minivans.” –Nic Phillips, President of TAWA

Any families in the New Bern area that are looking for the perfect family hauler to round out their summer plans, it might be time to take a look at the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, putting “cool” where it’s never been before: in “minivan.” Since “mini-cool-van” is a bit of a mouthful, we won’t mind if you just call it “awesome.” If you’re interested in the Pacifica, come see us at Riverside Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, located on 1601 US 70 East, New Bern, to go for a test drive in the award-winning 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.
