2021 Chrysler Pacifica | Milton
Many SUVs claim to seat eight passengers, but all too often the third row is a cramped afterthought suitable for short journeys only. For genuine people-carrying comfort, the minivan is an unbeatable format, but there are fewer and fewer models available on the Canadian market.
Thankfully, the Chrysler Pacifica is a successful minivan that's showing no signs of leaving the party, remaining one of the best combinations of spaciousness, comfort, and performance. Here are the highlights of the latest 2021 model now available at our Milton dealership.
The 2021 Pacifica sees the introduction of an all-new all-wheel drive option, complete with an automatic torque balancing system to give each wheel the power it needs for excellent overall traction. In addition, both the interior and exterior have been given a makeover to bring the minivan format truly up to date.
Exterior and Design
The exterior of the Pacifica is perhaps closer in appearance to a larger SUV rather than the traditional minivan shape. The profile is streamlined and handsome, with none of the boxiness that older minivans sometimes suffered from. What's more, the improved design doesn't impact on the cabin's spaciousness, with plenty enough room for eight passengers to travel in comfort.
Performance Under the Hood
The standard 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is powered by a 3.6L V6 gas engine making a hefty 287 horsepower, paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and either front-wheel drive or the new all-wheel option. This configuration produces some great performance figures for what remains a family vehicle, with the Pacifica speeding from 0-100kmh in a shade over seven seconds. But this great performance doesn't mean the Pacifica is a thirsty gas guzzler, boasting a highly respectable fuel economy rating of just 7.6L / 100km for highway driving. For even more miserly fuel consumption, there's also a hybrid Pacifica available, pairing the same gas engine with two electric motors. This configuration lowers the horsepower a little to 260hp, but improves the fuel economy dramatically with a combined rating of 2.8L / 100km.
Advanced Infotainment and Technology
Infotainment is a particularly important part of a family car, helping to make even longer journeys pass more smoothly. The 2021 Pacifica now has an upgraded 10.1" touchscreen running the Uconnect 5 system to provide all the info and controls you need in one place. Smartphone integration is handled by Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, with extra connectivity provided by a Wi-Fi hotspot facility and up to 12 USB ports spread throughout the cabin.
Safety on the highway is improved by many active systems as standard or available options, with the highlights including:
