2023 Pacifica Safety

Modern car buyers demand superior safety standards from their vehicles, especially those designed to transport large amounts of people. The Pacifica was explicitly designed for this reason, which is why Chrysler went all out when it formulated how to keep this giant tuna can on wheels safe from shredding limbs in the event of a serious accident, and their hard work paid off; The NHTSA scores the Pacifica a full five starts overall while the IIHS awarded the minivan with a Top Safety Pick+ award for 2022.

2023 Pacifica Key Safety Features

In the ultra-competitive minivan class, the difference between a so-so rating and an award-winning safety performance can mean the gain or loss of thousands of sales, so it's good then that Chrysler didn't cut any corners when it came to the design of the Pacifica's safety systems. The full suite of SafetyTec driver-assistance systems is standard on all models. These features include full-speed forward-collision warning (includes active braking and automatic pedestrian braking), lane-departure warning (includes lane-keep assist), blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control (includes stop and go), LED daytime running lights, stability control, hill-start assist, and ParkSense rear-parking assist with auto stop and a ParkView reverse camera. The Pacifica has a total of eight airbags to keep those inside the car safe: front, front-side, two front-knee, and three-row curtain. It has a standard Sentry Key safety system, remote keyless entry, and remote proximity for all doors to make sure occupants are kept secure, and the bad guys are kept out. Touring L and Limited trims have front parking sensors, Park Assist with automatic stop, parallel/perpendicular park assistance, and a surround-view camera as standard.
