Pacifica is the only minivan to offer class-exclusive Stow ‘n Go seating for second and third rows, paired with the most advanced AWD system in its class. The Pacifica’s AWD system engages seamlessly without need of driver activation and with the capability of transferring 100 percent of the available engine torque to the rear wheels. The AWD system – the first available in a Chrysler minivan since 2004 – delivers enhanced traction in a wide range of driving and road conditions, from dry pavement to snow-covered roads to non-paved surfaces. AWD is available on all five trim levels at a Canadian MSRP of $3,500.

The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, still North America’s only plug-in hybrid minivan, is available in four Pacifica trim levels with a starting Canadian MSRP of $53,995. The 2021 Pacifica Hybrid lineup includes Touring, Touring-L Plus, Limited and the new top-of-the-line Pinnacle. The minivan segment’s first-ever hybrid vehicle delivers 2.9 Le/100 km (80 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe)) in electric-only mode, an all-electric range of more than 50 kilometres (30 miles) and a total range of more than 800 kilometres (500 miles).

2021 Chrysler minivan lineup: The people-mover brand evolves
Chrysler brand remains committed to the minivan segment it invented more than 35 years ago with a full 2021 lineup that provides families a range of options, from an entry-level minivan to a premium people-mover. The redesigned 2021 Chrysler Pacifica gas-powered model lineup — Touring, Touring-L, Touring-L Plus, Limited and the new top-of-line Pinnacle — delivers a menu of choices to fit any family, while Chrysler Grand Caravan is the budget-friendly family option.

The new-for-2021 Chrysler Pacifica will offer 116 standard and available safety and security features, the most in the industry, including:
  • New LED lights
  • Available Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking (PAEB)
  • Available Blind-Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Path detection
  • Available Park-Sense Rear Park Assist
  • Available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go
  • Electronic stability control (ESC)
  • Available Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking
  • Available Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist

The 2021 Pacifica’s standard new exterior design expression is much more deeply sculpted, athletic and modern in character, with utility-vehicle-inspired design cues. A new top-of-the-line Pinnacle model sets a new standard in the segment with a sophisticated, luxurious interior that incorporates a new integrated Ultra console — the most functional centre console in its class — and elite appointments, such as quilted Nappa Caramel leather seats with new matching lumbar comfort pillows.
 
The all-new Uconnect 5 system, standard across the 2021 Pacifica lineup, includes a largest-in-class 10.1-inch standard touchscreen, which is nearly 20 percent larger than the screen it replaces. The system is five times faster than Uconnect 4 and includes Amazon Alexa capabilities.
 
The new 2021 Chrysler Pacifica also gives parents a bird’s-eye view of their most precious cargo, thanks to the available new FamCAM interior camera, which delivers a best-in-class high-definition image and allows the driver a view of rear-facing child seat occupants in the second row and even allows them to zoom in on passengers. Another first for the segment, new USB Type C ports allow devices to charge up to four times faster than standard USB outlets.

The Pacifica Limited Hybrid is available at a starting Canadian MSRP of $57,995; the Pacifica Limited AWD is available at a starting Canadian MSRP of $59,795.

The Pacifica Limited incorporates a new-for-2021 Premium console that flows seamlessly into the instrument panel, with soft-sided console panels trimmed in an attractive accent stitch. The Limited Premium console provides dual-level storage with a large pass-through storage area and delivers 7.60 litres of covered console storage, a significant improvement from the 2020 Limited model. The Premium console also includes a tamboured door for centre storage that is a half-inch wider and significantly longer than the 2020 model.

2021 Chrysler Pacifica Pinnacle
For families seeking a luxurious “living room on wheels” with premium materials and class-exclusive features, the new top-of-the-line 2021 Pacifica Pinnacle Hybrid starts at a Canadian MSRP of $59,995; the Pinnacle with the V-6 engine paired with AWD starts at a Canadian MSRP of $65,795.

The Pinnacle is packed with premium appointments, such as Caramel Nappa leather seats with quilted seat bolsters and perforated seat inserts on all three rows, including the second-row captain’s chairs. Unique, new, second-row comfort lumbar pillows feature an embossed Chrysler logo and match the quilted Nappa Caramel seats with suede pillow backs.
 
A new, integrated Ultra console exclusive to the Pinnacle is the most functional front centre console in its class and is designed to seamlessly flow into the instrument panel, a departure from the 2020 model year. Soft console side panels are trimmed with Caramel accent stitch, and the larger console area allows for the armrest to move from seats to the console.
 
The Pinnacle’s Ultra console provides dual-level storage, with a deep pass-through area underneath that accommodates a large purse or even a laptop. The rear pull-out drawer travels 6.3 centimetres (2.5 inches) longer than that in the 2020 Pacifica for easier access by second-row passengers.

The console delivers 13.65 litres of overall console storage, an increase of one-third. Total storage area of the new 2021 Pacifica Pinnacle is 227.6 litres — enough to haul 60 gallons of milk.
 
Additional interior touches unique to the Pinnacle model include new Mid-century Timber Hydro bezels on the instrument panel, which deliver a “pop” of wood styling, a black suede headliner and a Piano Black finish on the centre stack bezel, PRNDL bezel and push-push console storage door. Satin Chrome plating on the seat controls and sliding door handles, high-end berber-construction floor mats and Satin Chrome door sill guards complete the interior.

A new FamCAM interior camera, which provides front-seat passengers a view of rear-facing child seat occupants in the second row and even allows them to zoom in on passengers, also comes standard on the Pinnacle, as does Uconnect Theatre with Blu-ray player. For audiophiles, a new Harman Kardon Premium Audio Group adds a 10-inch rear quarter trim subwoofer with a 19-speaker system as standard on the Pinnacle (with a 20-speaker system for Pinnacle Hybrid).
