Sample article from our Automobile Industry

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan , February 28, 2022 (press release) –

  • Second time Pacifica minivan has earned highest rating under latest IIHS test regimen
  • 2022 Chrysler Pacifica’s standard-equipment Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) graded “superior;” benefits from refined combination of camera, radar technology
  • Highest possible ratings in each of six IIHS crashworthiness tests
  • North America’s only minivan with available AWD and second-row Stow ’n Go seating

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica has earned a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for 2022.

This latest rating reprises Pacifica’s model-year 2021 performance, as vehicles produced after September of last year also qualified for TOP SAFETY PICK+.

“The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica delivers on our firm commitment to provide customers with superior safety,” said Chrysler Brand CEO Chris Feuell. “Pacifica remains the ideal choice for anyone seeking the greatest combination of safety, innovative technology and value.”

The IIHS revised its ratings system in 2020 to include a greater emphasis on lighting and Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) technology. The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica’s standard-equipment vehicle-to-vehicle AEB system is rated “superior” – the highest possible IIHS grade.

It benefits from a combination of camera technology and radar sensors that was refined to deliver a wider field of view. Blending the two methods of object detection – a strategy known as sensor-fusion – also affords redundancy, which enhances system performance.

AEB, which is proliferating across the Stellantis product lineup as standard equipment, identifies when certain frontal collisions may be imminent. If such conditions are detected, visual and audible alerts are generated and, if the driver fails to respond, the system may activate the vehicle’s brakes to help avoid an impact, or lessen its severity.

The Pacifica’s Pedestrian AEB capability earned a rating of “advanced.”

The vehicle earned a “good” grade – the highest possible rating – in the six core crashworthiness tests conducted by IIHS:

  • Small overlap front (driver side)
  • Small overlap front (passenger side)
  • Moderate overlap, front
  • Side impact
  • Roof strength
  • Head restraints and seats

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica is North America’s only minivan with second-row Stow ’n Go seating, which provides fold-in-the-floor convenience, and available all-wheel-drive (AWD).

Pacifica’s AWD technology engages seamlessly at any speed, without any activation required by the driver. If any of the vehicle’s wheels lose traction, the system automatically transfers available engine torque to the wheels with more traction, for greater control.

With more than 160 industry honors and accolades, the Chrysler Pacifica is the industry’s most awarded minivan six years in a row.
