All About the New 2021 Chrysler Pacifica

Greenway Dodge – Chrysler Pacifica
The Chrysler Pacifica is far from your average minivan. In addition to its family-friendly orientation, which should be expected of members of its class, the Pacifica is uniquely stunning to look at. The 2021 model year is the Pacifica’s fifth consecutive iteration, and this edition comes with refreshed interior and exterior styling, an updated infotainment system, and additional driver safety aids. The 2021 Pacifica is split into four trims, which are the following:

TOURING: The drivetrain of the 2021 Pacifica comprises a 287-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission. Using a front-engine front-wheel-drive layout, the Pacifica provides a fuel economy of 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, which are good numbers for a minivan. There’s the option, though, to upgrade to an all-wheel-drive system for better performance on slippery surfaces. The minivan has three rows of cloth-trimmed seats to accommodate up to seven people, with eight-way power on the driver’s seat. The second row has Stow ‘n Go technology, which means that these seats can be either stowed within the cabin floor or removed to free up the maximum amount of cargo space in the minivan. The HVAC system includes automatic climate controls for the driver, front passenger, and second-row occupants. For convenience, the key fob includes buttons to start the Pacifica before you get to it and unlock the doors (as well as lock them when out of the minivan). In addition, the rearview mirror has auto-dimming technology to dim headlight glare, and a universal transceiver enables you to remote-control home features such as garage doors. For infotainment, the vehicle has what is referred to as Uconnect 5, which uses a 10.1-inch touchscreen to integrate the following:
• Six speakers
• AM/FM radio
• Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration
• Bluetooth hands-free phone calling and audio streaming
• USB port for connecting mobile devices
• Trial subscription to SiriusXM Radio
Driver-assistance technologies are abundant at the base-level Touring level. They include the following:
• A rearview camera with rear parking sensors for parking or low-speed reverse-driving guidance
• Adaptive cruise control to automatically set a safe following distance
• Blind spot monitoring for watching out for blind spots and avoiding side crashes
• Rear cross-traffic alert to watch out for any vehicles crossing the path behind you when moving in reverse
• Lane departure warning to notify you when you veer off your intended lane of travel without activating a turn signal
• Lane keep assist for applying steering pressure to get the vehicle back on track
• Forward collision warning to alert you of an impending front-end crash
• Automatic emergency braking to apply braking pressure to mitigate or avoid a front-end crash
In the event of a crash, the Pacifica Touring can deploy any of six airbags, which consist of two frontal impact airbags, two side impact airbags, and two side curtain airbags.
TOURING L: The Touring trim level of the Chrysler Pacifica comes with a few seating and driving-comfort upgrades. The front seats gain heating ability, the cloth seat trim is upgraded to leather, a memory system is added on the driver’s seat, and urethane on the steering wheel is replaced by leather.
LIMITED: The Limited is available in all-wheel drive only; fuel economy consequently dips to 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. Infotainment gets a boost with the introduction of a navigation system and HD Radio technology, as well as an upgrade to 13 speakers (instead of sticking with six). Also enhanced is the comfort and convenience experience with the following enhancements:
• Nappa leather upholstery
• Front-seat heating
• Eight-way power extended to the front passenger seat
• Heating ability extended to the second row
• Power-folding ability on the third row
• Hands-free power liftgate
• Hands-free power-sliding doors
• Built-in vacuum cleaner (Stow ‘n Vac)
• Tri-pane panoramic sunroof
PINNACLE: The range-topping Pinnacle joins the Limited in being strictly an all-wheel-drive model. However, it stands out from the Limited—as well as the other two trim levels—by having the following enhancements or upgrades:
• Simulated suede headliner (instead of a cloth one)
• Storage bins underneath the second row
• 18-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound system
• Uconnect Theater rear-seat entertainment system with dual 10.1-inch touchscreens and a DVD/Blu-ray player
• Front parking sensors (in addition to the rear parking ones)
• Surround-view parking camera system (in place of the rearview one)
