2021 Chrysler Pacifica - Now in Strathroy
New for 2021
The biggest change for 2021 is the introduction of an all-wheel-drive option, the first time a Chrysler minivan has offered anything beyond FWD for over 15 years. Alongside, the interior and exterior have both received a light refresh, to make the overall design more modern compared to previous models.
Design and Exterior
Although the Pacifica is still defiantly a minivan, an exterior redesign has taken it closer to SUV territory. The front end has a larger grille and sleeker lines, while the profile is swept back with smoother angles than the typical box-like minivan. All in all, the Pacifica offers the looks of a crossover SUV while still retaining the unmatched people-carrying capacity of a minivan.
Gas versions of the 2021 Pacifica are based around a 3.6L V6 pushing out 287 horsepower through a nine-speed automatic transmission. This drivetrain is powerful enough to propel the Pacifica from 0-100 km in just 7.3 seconds, a highly respectable figure for a family minivan. What's more, it manages to provide this performance with a highly respectable fuel economy of 7.6L / 100km on the highway.
The available hybrid powertrain adds two electric motors to the standard engine, drops the horsepower down a notch to 260hp, but improves the equivalent fuel economy to an outstanding 2.8L / 100km combined.
New for 2021 is a large 10.1" touchscreen display running the powerful Uconnect 5 system. The software allows the home screen to be customized, giving fast access to the features you need most often.
Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot facility are all standard, while depending on the trim the cabin boasts up to 12 USB points for excellent connectivity and charging options.
Safety Features and Driver Assist
As standard, the Pacifica features some impressive safety features, with key highlights including:
- Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
- Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
- Adaptive cruise control with lane departure warnings.
