CHRYSLER DEBUTS THE 2021 PACIFICA AT THE 2020 CHICAGO AUTO SHOW
Chrysler introduced the refreshed and redesigned 2021 Pacifica during the 2020 Chicago Auto Show Media Preview on Thursday, Feb. 6. With all-wheel-drive capability, Uconnect 5 infotainment, LED lights and a new Pinnacle model, the Pacifica offers more standard safety features than any other vehicle in the industry.
"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 delivers more standard safety features than any vehicle in the industry, offers class-leading AWD 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 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. This system will be available across all four gas-powered Chrysler Pacifica models: Touring, Touring L, Limited and Pinnacle.
The new Pacifica will offer 97 standard safety features. New LED lights and Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking (PAEB) - both offered for the first time in the class as standard - join Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, Rear Park Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with Full Stop, electronic stability control (ESC), Forward Collision Warning with Full Stop, Lane Departure Warning, eight airbags and more as standard safety features. In all, the Pacifica features 116 standard and available safety and security features.
The Pacifica's new exterior design expression is athletic and modern with utility-vehicle-inspired design cues. A new top-of-the-line Pinnacle model sets a new standard in the segment with luxurious interior that incorporates a new integrated Ultra console - the most functional center 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 percent larger than the screen it replaces. With the Uconnect skill for Alexa, customers with Alexa-enabled devices at home can easily ask Alexa to start the car and lock and unlock doors.
The new 2021 Chrysler Pacifica also offers a new 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, a new USB Type C ports allow devices to charge up to four times faster than standard USB outlets.
