This was not the only award that Pacifica Hybrid won. It also received awards for Minivan of Texas, Green Car of Texas and for Best Feature, which went to Pafica's hybrid powertrain.
And this is how president of TAWA Nic Philips explained the jury decision: "The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan was the clear leader for one of our top awards, the Family Car of Texas. As the industry's first electrified hybrid minivan, Chrysler has taken not only this family vehicle but the entire plug-in electric class to a whole new level. The Pacifica is loaded with high-tech features that make it easy to connect, charge and maximize the efficiency of the vehicle, not to mention offering the safety features and technology that every family deserves."
