FCA recently debuted the new-for-2021 Chrysler Pacifica. The Canadian built all-wheel-drive minivan combines Stow ‘n Go seating and 116 standard and available safety and security features with 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.”
Among the 116 standard and available features available are new LED lights and Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking (PAEB). Additional safety features includes 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 all-new Uconnect 5 system, offered for the first time in a North American vehicle and standard across the Pacifica lineup, includes a 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.
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.
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.
