Chrysler Pacifica Wins Innovation Award for Weight Reduction

The Chrysler Pacifica has been consistently awarded for its various features since it has been released.  It’s the new age of the minivan with the Pacifica leading the charge and few vehicles have been as universally awarded in such a short amount of time.  The Pacifica has another award to add to the shelf, but this one is for an achievement the minivan pulled off that doesn’t get much buzz.  The Pacifica made an achievement in weight reduction.

The fifth annual Altair Enlighten Awards have awarded the Pacifica for innovation in automotive lightweighting. 

“The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is a testament to our team’s engineering capability.  It’s not only lighter than the vehicle it replaced; it’s longer, wider and more efficient.  The Pacifica has also earned superior safety ratings and widespread media acclaim.  We are proud to add the Altair Enlighten Award to its list of team achievements.”

The Pacifica was able to reduce its weight with a blend of high-strength steel, aluminum, and magnesium in its body structure that is nearly 250 pounds lighter than the model it is replacing.  This helps the Pacifica have an improved fuel economy on the highway and does not sacrifice safety.

Anderson Cooper & Chrysler Award Family the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country


One family will be getting a great surprise on February 21st.  Next Tuesday the Ewing family from Canton, Mich will be getting their own 2012 Chrysler Town & Country.  This will all go down on Anderson Cooper’s show ‘Anderson.’  The family was given the vehicle last December during Anderson’s show for a holiday segment he ran called “Anderson, I Need Your Help for the Holidays!”

The Ewing family was one of the struggling families that were selected.  The Ewings have been forced to endure many terrible things including job loss, a son who survived cancer, and have a lack of reliable transportation to support the family of six.

Chrysler is always focused on giving back.  With their sales finally taking a turn for the better, they are certainly seeing on how to help those who need it.  It’s great for them as well to be able to provide a family that’s endured some terrible things in life.  It’s a great thing to see a happy ending like this.
