How safe is the Chrysler Pacifica? Is it safe enough for me and my family? The answer you are looking for is yes! The Chrysler Pacifica is the only minivan to be awarded a 2017 Insurance Institute of Highway Safety Top Safety Pick, making it the safest minivan option out there. The Chrysler Pacifica is loaded with safety options, whether you’re taking a trip to the grocery store or going on a family vacation, your precious cargo like your children will be safe.
The Chrysler Pacifica features a 360-degree surround view camera that offers a bird’s eye view of the vehicle so that you get a view of your surroundings. This is perfect for backing out of the driveway, sometimes those hard to see favorite objects could be in the way, such as a bicycle. ParkSense will also help detect these objects, you’ll never hit another toy… or the family cat again. Your children will thank you for that one.
Full Speed Forward Collision Warning will give you a visual warning when it senses a front collision, it will also help to apply the automatic emergency braking
if needed. The same sensors used with this system are also used to give you adaptive cruise control with stop and go.
This will help you stay a certain distance from a vehicle in front of you when you’re using cruise control. You will never have to start your cruise control, turn it off, turn it back on, and turn it off ever again.
Blind Spot Monitoring is a sensor device that detects other vehicles located in your blind spot areas. If a vehicle is in your blind spot, a spot on your driver and passenger side
mirrors will light up and notify you, making it a safe lane change. You will never have to “guess” if a vehicle is in your blind spot when you’re trying to merge into another lane.
Some vehicles will also include Cross Path Detection, this will alert you if a vehicle is passing by you when you’re trying to back out a parking space. This can be a very tricky situation when you have vehicles parked next to you on both sides that are twice the size of your vehicle.
Lane Departure Warning system is a mechanism designed to warn the driver when the vehicle begins to move out of its lane. If your blinker isn’t on, you’ll be notified
as soon as you leave your lane. This is also equipped with lane keep assist, it will automatically help guide you back into your lane if you have drifted outside of your lane unintentional.
Now that your children have grown up and received their driver’s license, it can be very nerve-wracking for parents to just hand over the keys to their vehicle. With the Chrysler Pacifica, it doesn’t have to be that way. KeySense is a technology that helps promote safer driving habits by eliminating distractions. You can set what the highest speed your vehicle can go, the loudness of the music, plus more! The next time you get into your vehicle, you can actually see what your teenagers did, such as their speed.
