NAIAS Utility Vehicle of the Year: Chrysler Pacifica

The North American International Auto Show's newest honor went to the Chrysler Pacifica.

The 2017 Pacifica minivan won the first-ever Utility Vehicle of the Year award, thanks in part to features like a plug-in hybrid model that can go 35 miles on a charge.

The Pacifica won with 300 points defeating both the Mazda CX-9 (135) and Jaguar F-Pace (125) in the category which includes sport utility vehicles and minivans.

The Pacifica's milage is 28 miles per gallon highway and 18 city and seats up to eight. The MSRP starts at $28,595.
