    • FCA continues to lead the segment, selling twice as many minivans as any other manufacturer for over 37 years
    • Through six generations, FCA has innovated 116 segment firsts
Windsor, Ontario February 6, 2020 - The Chrysler brand introduced today the new-for-2021 Chrysler Pacifica and set a new standard in the class by delivering available all-wheel-drive (AWD) capability combined with class-exclusive Stow 'n Go seating and 116 standard and available safety and security features, the most in the industry, all wrapped in a refreshed exterior and interior design.

"Through 37 years and more than 15 million minivans sold, Chrysler has defined the minivan segment, and we plan to continue redefining it with the new 2021 Chrysler Pacifica,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “Not only does this new Pacifica look more capable, it is more capable. It offers class-leading all-wheel-drive capability paired with Stow ‘n Go, a new customizable Uconnect 5 system that is five times faster, and you can even take Alexa along for the ride and see into rear-facing child seats with the new FamCAM™. We also have the new top-of-the-line Pinnacle™ model, and Pacifica is still the only hybrid in the segment. Whatever the challenge, Pacifica offers solutions.” 
 
The new Canadian-built 2021 Chrysler Pacifica offers the most advanced AWD system in its class and is the only vehicle to offer AWD along with Stow ‘n Go seating. The seamless, fully automatic AWD system is the only vehicle in the segment capable of transferring all available engine torque to the rear wheels, or whichever wheels have more available traction. The Pacifica AWD system is also able to sense and stop the drive shaft from spinning when AWD is not required, a class-exclusive feature in the segment that improves efficiency and reduces emissions.
 
The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica will offer 116 standard and available safety and security features, the most in the industry. New LED lights and available Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking (PAEB) are now offered, plus existing available safety equipment including Blind-Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Path detection, Park-Sense Rear Park Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, electronic stability control (ESC), Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, eight airbags and more.

The Pacifica’s 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, offered for the first time in a North American vehicle and standard across the Pacifica lineup, includes a largest-in-class 10.1-inch touchscreen, which is nearly 20 per cent larger than the screen it replaces. The system is five times faster than Uconnect 4 and includes Alexa. With the Uconnect skill for Alexa, customers with Alexa-enabled devices at home can easily ask Alexa to start the car, lock/unlock doors and more. Uconnect 5 brings Amazon Alexa directly into the vehicle itself, giving occupants the freedom to interact with Alexa just as they do at home or on a personal device. With Alexa built-in, occupants can ask Alexa to play music, podcasts and audiobooks; add items to their to-do list; check news, weather, traffic, sports and other real-time information; and access tens of thousands of Alexa skills.
 
The new 2021 Chrysler Pacifica also gives parents a bird’s eye view of their most precious cargo thanks to the new available FamCAM interior camera that 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 2021 Chrysler Pacifica will be built at the Windsor Assembly Plant in Windsor, Ontario. Orders open in the third quarter of 2020 with the vehicle available in dealerships in the fourth quarter of 2020. AWD also will be available on the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica AWD Launch Edition, which opens for dealer orders in the second quarter of 2020 and begins arriving in dealerships in late second quarter of 2020.
 
2021 Chrysler Pacifica: The most advanced AWD system in its class
The most awarded minivan over the last four years with more than 125 honours and industry accolades, the Chrysler brand heard the call from its customers for AWD and answered the bell with a new system that helps Pacifica owners haul people and things through all types of weather – be it rain or snow. 

North America’s only minivan to offer AWD along with Stow ‘n Go seating, the available system for the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica delivers enhanced traction in a wide range of driving and road conditions – from dry pavement to snow-covered roads to non-paved surfaces – and engages seamlessly at any speed without the need of driver activation.

The Chrysler Pacifica’s AWD system – the first available in a Chrysler minivan since 2004 – uses mechanical and electronic technology proven durable and capable on other FCA vehicles. In addition, the system was put through its paces, with more than 1.6 million customer-driven-equivalent kilometres of testing prior to introduction on the 2021 Pacifica.

Key mechanical components of the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica AWD system include:
  • Power Transfer Unit (PTU): Splits torque from the nine-speed automatic transmission and routes it to the Rear Drive Module
  • Three-piece Drive Shaft: Connects the power transfer unit and the rear drive module. Even with the additional driveline components, the Chrysler Pacifica AWD retains its second-row and third-row Stow ‘n Go seating storage
  • Rear Drive Module: Houses electronically controlled wet clutch that manages torque to rear wheels; second-generation one-speed drive module optimized for weight and low-speed drag torque reduction
Other mechanical changes resulting in improved driving dynamics include the addition of a rear sway bar and revised tuning for the front and rear suspension. Ride height is increased 20 millimetres (0.78 inches).

Its seamless, fully automatic AWD system is the only one in the segment capable of transferring all available engine torque to the rear wheels, or whichever wheels have more available traction. The Pacifica AWD system, the most capable AWD in the class, is also able to sense and stop the drive shaft from spinning when AWD is not required, a class-exclusive feature in the segment that improves efficiency and reduces emissions.
 
The AWD system also employs a brake-lock differential system to help enhance traction, with fully automatic torque distribution between each wheel. If one wheel on an axle loses traction, the system applies the brake to the low-traction wheel, redirecting torque through the differential to the wheel with more traction. The 18-inch brake package for AWD features larger vented front and solid rear rotors and calipers with more capacity.

The AWD system engages automatically, based on a variety of sensor inputs that signal when enhanced traction is beneficial. For best traction performance, AWD is engaged when the Chrysler Pacifica begins to accelerate from a standing stop. Other inputs that signal AWD engagement include:
  • Cold exterior temperature
  • Use of windshield wipers
  • Slip detected at the front wheels
  • Heavy acceleration at certain vehicle speeds, such as overtaking during passing
  • Electronic stability control activation
  • Abrupt steering or sudden throttle inputs
  • Rough road conditions/grades
When the Chrysler Pacifica’s drivetrain detects that AWD is not needed, it disconnects the power transfer unit and rear drive module automatically to stop the drive shaft from spinning, reducing driveline drag and improving efficiency.

The Pacifica AWD will feature new, standard self-sealing 235/60-R18 Michelin Premier All-season tires for 18-inch wheel applications, with 20-inch wheels offered with optional Pirelli self-sealing tires (late availability) or non-self-sealing Falken tires.
 
The AWD system will be available across five gas-powered Chrysler Pacifica models: Touring, Touring-L, Touring-L Plus, Limited and Pinnacle.
 
Utility-vehicle-inspired exterior gives Chrysler Pacifica athletic character
The next expression of the Chrysler Pacifica has arrived, with an inspired refresh standard across the model lineup. The Pacifica features a bold, deeply sculpted face and sophisticated styling that does more with less to celebrate the entire width of the rear, resulting in an unmistakable visual jump from the current model.
 
The utility-vehicle-inspired presence begins to take shape right up front with a more “heroic” 3D diamond-styled grille, which is accented with painted Gloss Black upper grille textures and a new Bright Chrome grille surround. The iconic Chrysler Wing badge is Liquid Chrome and embellished with a new High Gloss Black insert.

The modern face is sculpted to create a more dominant upper grille. The slimmer lower grille mirrors the 3D diamond-style and Gloss Black appearance of the upper grille. New headlamps are crafted with a more aggressive, linear design. Standard new LED headlamps deliver increased light projection and standout boldly thanks to a Daytime Running Light (DRL) appearance.

Larger and more deeply sculpted LED fog lamp bezels add visual energy and complement the sportiness of the overall design. Fog lamp bezels are also touched with the painted black texture of the grille and outlined with L-shaped chrome details.
 
A new rear all-LED taillamp runs the entire width of the Pacifica, communicating a more upscale lit appearance and transforming the visual feel. The new lit taillamp is encapsulated in a High Gloss Black housing with the Chrysler Wing badge positioned prominently on top of the housing. The taillamp is cleanly and precisely integrated with the backup camera and aerodynamic functions in the single, simple housing. The rear is further dressed up with exterior trim features, including a lower tail end Bright Chrome valance moulding.

When it comes to customizing the rims of the Pacifica, owners will have a full palette of options to choose from with six new wheel designs offered in a wide menu of different finishes. Available wheels include:
  • New 20-Inch polished with Baltic Grey pockets (Pinnacle)
  • New 20-inch machined face with Baltic Grey pockets and new “Foreshadow” Finish (S Appearance)
  • New 18-inch full polish and new “Foreshadow” finish (S Appearance)
  • New 18-inch Fine Silver
  • New 18-inch polished and new “Foreshadow” finish (S Appearance)
  • New 18-inch polished with Baltic Grey pockets (Pinnacle)
  • 17-inch Silver Litho (New Finish)
  • 17-inch machined with Baltic Grey pockets (New Finish)
The Pacifica’s exterior palette will expand with a new Fathom Blue colour available for the 2021 model year. The new hue beautifully travels between light and dark colour tones, celebrating the sculptural qualities of the refreshed exterior.

The popular S Appearance Package, introduced in 2017 and now chosen by one of every three Pacifica buyers, will continue in 2021 with new exterior Anodized Ink finishes on the grille surrounds and badging, and a new “Foreshadow” finish on the wheels. The Pacifica Red S Edition, introduced in 2019 for the 2020 model year with class-exclusive Rodèo Red premium Nappa leather seats, will also continue as an option for owners looking to customize their Pacifica Limited S from the factory.

Posh people mover: Pacifica Pinnacle model delivers most luxurious interior in its class
The interior refresh of the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica broadens its appeal with utility-vehicle-style cues while setting a new standard in the class through use of premium materials, more striking colour combinations and enhanced technology.

Leading the way is a new top-of-the-line model: Pacifica Pinnacle. The Pinnacle model features a luxurious and sophisticated interior, targeting customers who desire a vehicle loaded with premium appointments and features. 

The Pinnacle offers the most luxurious interior in its class with one of Pacifica’s two new available integrated consoles designed to seamlessly flow into the instrument panel. The Pinnacle integrated Ultra console, the most functional in its class, seamlessly blends into the instrument panel with the transition assisted by two soft wings bordered with accent stitch. The larger console area allows for the armrest to be relocated from the seats to the console and provides dual-leveled storage, featuring a storage tray on top and a deeper storage area underneath. A large pass-through underneath the console offers an abundant amount of covered storage, providing ample space for personal bags or other large items, such as a laptop.

The Pinnacle Ultra console offers 13.65 litres of overall storage, an increase of 4.55 litres, one-third more than the current model. Covered storage is 12.1 litres, also a one-third increase over the current model. Pinnacle also includes second-row storage bins in the floor. Total storage on the Pinnacle model is a best-in-class 227.6 litres.

A striking Caramel and Piano Black colour theme, exclusive to the Pinnacle model, defines the interior. Caramel Nappa leather seats are embellished with quilted seat side bolsters and perforated seat inserts and seat backs on all three rows, including second row captain’s chairs, adding an elite premium touch point. In addition, seats are accented by Light Tungsten piping and stitching, which serves as a nice, subtle contrast with the deep brown and richness of the Caramel seats. Caramel colour feel extends to the door panel armrest and bolsters with added Caramel accent stitching on the door upper.
 
A unique set of two fully movable lumbar comfort pillows for the second row captain’s chairs match the quilted style and Caramel colour of the leather seats and provide an additional dash of classy comfort and style for passengers. The lumbar pillows feature an embossed Chrysler logo on one side, with a suede pillow backing on the other.

The instrument panel pops thanks to a new mid-century Timber Hydro bezel that delivers distinct wood styling, while a Piano Black finish elegantly dresses up the centre stack bezel, PRNDL bezel and push-push storage bin door. Satin Chrome plating accents on the seat controls on the first and second row and on the sliding door handles enhance the overall premium aesthetics and also touch and feel for customers. The Pinnacle exudes luxury literally from top to bottom — the interior includes a vehicle-length black suede headliner and high-end Berber-construction floor mats.
 
Unique finishes stretch out to touch the exterior of the Pinnacle, including a Satin Carbon grille and Platinum Chrome on all exterior surrounds, mouldings and badging in place of standard Bright Chrome. A new Pinnacle side door nameplate in the Pacifica font is also Platinum Chrome.

The interior of the Limited model is also transformed with its own new integrated Premium console, a more compact iteration of the Pinnacle console. The Limited’s Premium console also flows into the instrument panel and provides dual-level storage with a large pass-through storage area. Centre storage is delivered through a tamboured door that is a 13-millimetre (half-inch) wider and 32-millimetres (1.25 inches) longer than the current model. The Limited Premium console delivers 7.60 litres of covered storage, three litres more than the current model, and allows for inclusion of Stow ‘n Go seating.

The Super console from the 2020 Pacifica Limited waterfalls to 2021 Pacifica Touring-L Plus model, while the 2021 Pacifica Touring and Touring-L models feature a carryover of the Mid console.
 
Elite interior features become standard equipment more than ever before for the 2021 Pacifica lineup, including a 7-inch full-colour customizable in-cluster display centre, a soft-touch instrument panel with accent stitching and second-row sunshades.

The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica offers the Uconnect smartphone app which makes its easy and convenient to start the vehicle, unlock doors or send an address to the navigation system. Vehicle maintenance information is also delivered through monthly vehicle health reports, in-vehicle messages or the vehicle info tab on the Uconnect smartphone app.
 
Cabin capability, convenience and comfort enhanced for 2021 Chrysler Pacifica
The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica builds upon Pacifica’s continued focus of providing owners with a comfortable and capable cabin experience, loaded with exclusive features and technological enhancements that make the ride more enjoyable for driver and passenger alike.

New for the 2021 is the available FamCAM interior camera, which projects a best-in-class, high-definition image, and allows the driver to keep close tabs on action happening in the back with segment-exclusive features, including a clear view of rear-facing child seat occupants, a split view display and a unique “zoom-to-seat” feature. 
 
The FamCAM is cleanly positioned above the cabin between the available front and second-row panoramic sunroof and the third-row fixed glass. FamCAM views are accessible through the 10.1-inch touchscreen and allow drivers to quickly click and zoom in. Memory setting functions keep the camera in the most recent position used to aid in ease of use and limit driver distraction.

The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is even more equipped to keep vehicle occupants connected while on the go. Functionality is enhanced with more USB ports throughout the vehicle, including segment-first USB Type C ports, allowing devices to charge up to four times faster than standard USB outlets. The new Pacifica doubles available USB ports from the current model, with up to a combined total of 12 USB Type A and Type C ports, depending on the model and package chosen. 

Keeping powered up will be simple with a new wireless charging system, available for the new integrated Ultra console on the Pinnacle and Premium console for the Limited model. A new LED light feature on the wireless charging system provides information on the charging status: a blue light indicates charging, red a foreign object detected and green signifies charging is complete. 

The class-exclusive Uconnect Theatre rear-seat entertainment system available with two 10.1-inch seatback touchscreens adds additional games such as Concentration, chess, Simon Clone (late availability) and backgammon (late availability) to keep both adult and child passengers entertained. The new offerings join existing games including Are We There Yet and Tic-Tac-Toe to provide the most built-in games in the industry, without the need of Wi-Fi or a subscription. 

For audiophiles, the available Harman Kardon premium audio group adds a 10-inch rear quarter trim subwoofer to the 19-speaker system, with a 20-speaker system offered on the hybrid powertrain model. The 23-litre sealed enclosure delivers more dynamic bass through the dual-voice-coiled subwoofer and is designed to better integrate with the available Stow 'n Vac system (or storage bin).

The already vault-like cabin of the Pacifica is sealed even tighter to create the quietest minivan ever made by FCA. Wind noise has been reduced with new or upgraded glass, including acoustic front side glass for the Limited, Pinnacle and all PHEV models, acoustic windshield glass on all Pacifica models and thicker sliding door glass for all Pacifica models.

FCA engineers worked to make a quiet ride even quieter with better fitments and door and glass seals for all price classes, further reducing in-cabin noise. Road noise is also reduced with upgraded roof bow stiffness, upgraded glass and improved body sealing. The changes deliver a 6-8 per cent increase in speech intelligibility.

First and only segment hybrid, award-winning Pentastar V-6 engine continue as powertrain options for Pacifica
The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica will continue to offer a choice of two powerful, efficient and advanced powertrains: the standard award-winning Pentastar V-6 engine and the still class-exclusive hybrid option.
 
The next generation of the award-winning Pentastar V-6 gasoline engine, which is mated to a segment-exclusive TorqueFlite nine-speed automatic transmission, delivers 287 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque
 
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, the segment’s first hybrid vehicle, features an FCA-designed, innovative dual-motor eFlite electrically variable transmission (EVT) paired with a specially modified version of the 3.6-litre Pentastar V-6 gasoline engine. The Pacifica Hybrid is designed to offer a seamless driving experience, with no need for the driver to select between electric and hybrid modes.
 
The Pacifica Hybrid, ranked among the top 10 best-selling PHEVs in the industry in Canada, is equipped with a regenerative braking system that redirects the kinetic energy used to stop the brakes into energy that is used to charge the vehicle’s battery. The Pacifica Hybrid may be fully recharged via the 6.6-kWh on-board charger or in as little as two hours using a 240-volt (Level 2) charger, available from Mopar through dealers.
