Chrysler revamps Pacifica in 2021
For 2021, Chrysler focused on revamping the Pacifica lineup to give buyers more choice
The Pacifica undergoes an extensive refresh for 2021. Style updates include a more aggressive front fascia, full-width LED taillight, new wheel designs, and updated paint choices, helping distinguish it from the outgoing model.
The rear end is much sharper than before, and thanks to new running lights on both ends, its nighttime profile is far more unique than it used to be.
Although some experts say that its front end it’s too anonymous, all off them agree that it’s the inside that matters and the Pacifica 2021 is absolutely perfect: a lot of usable interior space, quiet and so comfortable.
Chrysler’s latest Uconnect infotainment interface runs on a 10.1-inch touchscreen, larger than last year’s 8.4-inch unit. It includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a new FamCam rear-seat monitoring system is available. A 7.0-inch gauge cluster display is fitted, surrounded by a nicer soft-touch instrument panel covering. USB charge ports swap from Type-A to quicker-charging Type-C, and now there are a whopping 12 throughout the cabin. A wireless charging pad is available, too. New door and window seals, plus acoustic windshield glass, help improve interior quietness.
The 2021 Pacifica continues with the same 3.6-liter V6 engine that delivers 287 horsepower. What’s new is its optional all-wheel-drive that has a rear-wheel disconnect to maximize fuel economy when the conditions don’t call for the extra grip. This makes the Pacifica only the second minivan currently available with all-wheel drive – the Toyota Sienna is the only other.
