Minivans come with many perks. Despite their declining popularity, they offer a lot that SUVs and crossovers do not. Their main perk is their affordability. Thanks to the popularity of SUVs, minivans are cheaper to buy and maintain than ever before. In fact, according to a study in 2014, minivans are over $1,000 cheaper to drive than a 4WD SUV. They can even come in efficient hybrid options, as is the case with the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica.
Available in four different trims, the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica offers a luxurious traveling experience. From leather seating and driver assist features to fun entertainment options such as digital on-screen gaming for rear passengers, the Pacifica has plenty to offer. We’re excited to tell you more about this model, including its ability to pull off an attractive minivan aesthetic appeal. So, without further ado, let’s dive in.
While minivans are not known to be stylish, Chrysler gives the Pacifica special care when it comes to design. The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica comes with LED front, rear, and fog lights, which aids in nighttime visibility while adding to its visual appeal. Additionally, the Pacifica Pinnacle comes with chrome accents and wheels, while the S Appearance Package goes for a darker look, adding black accents and wheels instead.
While there are multiple 17-inch and 18-inch wheels available, buyers can also upgrade to 20-inch wheels. Some of these options include 17-inch silver-painted litho aluminum wheels, 18-inch foreshadow polished aluminum wheels, and 20-inch foreshadow painted aluminum wheels, with three other available wheel options. Along with the different wheel options, you can get the Pacifica in one of ten colors. Velvet Red, Luxury White Pearl, Bright White, Fathom Blue, and Ocean Blue are some of the bolder color choices. However, if you want something a little more sleek and subdued, you can opt for the Brilliant Black, Maximum Steel, Granite Crystal, Ceramic Grey, or Billet Silver. There are plenty of ways to customize this minivan.
Looks aren’t the only perk of the Pacifica’s exterior. In addition to these options, drivers get hands-free power sliding doors and a hands-free power liftgate. These come with technology that allows drivers to simply move their foot under the door to open it, as long as the key is nearby. Additionally, it offers a Tri-Pane panoramic sunroof, ensuring that every passenger gets natural lighting and a nice view. This Tri-Pan sunroof offers two roof panes in the front and one in the back. Overall, the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica offers customization and convenience.
A minivan can't just look good on the outside. It also has to be comfortable, full of convenience, and stylish on the inside. Let’s start with seating. The 2021 Pacifica comes with 11 different seating material and color options.
The standard seating options include Alloy Nappa leather trim, Deep Mocha leather trim, and Black Nappa leather trim with Axis II perforated inserts. Black McKinley leather trim with Axis perforated inserts, Alloy McKinley leather trim with Axis perforated inserts, and Quilted Caramel Nappa leather trim round out the leather options. There is also a standard Black Cloth with Black Ravine Cloth inserts for those who don't want the leather detail. The four available seating options include Black Nappa leather trim with Axis II perforated inserts with an S logo, Rodeo Red Nappa leather trim, Black McKinley leather trim with Axis perforated inserts and an S logo, and finally, Black Sedoso cloth with Ravine cloth inserts and an S logo.
Second-row Easy Tilt Seating makes it easier to load up passengers, and the Pacifica’s second-row lumbar support pillows help support posture. The Pacifica’s seats are ventilated and heated. Lastly, Stow ‘n Go Seating allows you to hide passenger seats, creating up to 140.5 cubic feet of cargo space. Overall, the Pacifica offers more seating customization options than most vehicles.
Now, let’s look at some convenience assets. The Pacifica comes with a wireless phone charger, an A USB port and a C USB port, and a 12-volt DC power outlet. Drivers will also get a garage door transmitter, a tilting and telescoping steering wheel, remote start, rain detecting wipers, and a memory driver seat. It also comes with several entertainment options, including a Blu-ray and digital media entertainment system, 1st and 2nd-row monitors, satellite radio, wireless phone connectivity, and a voice-activated navigation system.
The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica comes with several driver assist features. These include full-speed forward collision warning with active braking, adaptive cruise control, pedestrian automatic emergency braking, LaneSense lane departure warning with lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, ParkSense rear park assist, and rear cross path detection. Let’s take a closer look at what each of these features can do.
First, there’s a full-speed forward collision warning with active braking. This assist feature alerts drivers of potential frontal collisions, and without correction, will automatically apply brakes to prevent rear-ending. Next, adaptive cruise control is merely cruise control that monitors traffic speed so that drivers don’t have to cancel and reset their cruise control every time the traffic flow changes. Pedestrian automatic braking monitors for nearby pedestrians and applies brakes if the driver is too close to nearby pedestrians. Through warnings and automatic guidance, LaneSense keeps drivers from unintentionally drifting into the wrong lane. Blind spot monitoring with rear cross path detection works similarly, warning drivers of upcoming vehicles and ensuring that the driver doesn’t cut anyone off. Lastly, ParkSense has sensors that will alert drivers of rear-facing objects, and it can apply brakes when the driver doesn’t respond to those warnings. Overall, these driver-assist features provide extra protection when it’s hard to do it all alone.
In addition to these important features, the Pacifica also comes with a 360-surround view camera, which shows top views, side views, and rear and front views so that drivers can see all of their surroundings. Next, it offers ParkSense’s front park assist system, which works just like rear park assist, but when facing forward. Lastly, it offers parallel and perpendicular park assist, which actually controls the vehicle’s steering automatically, navigating between cars with ease. This automatic parking feature is handy but be sure to still be aware of the surrounding area when using it.
There’s much to say about the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica’s performance. This model can get up to 28 MPG on the highway in its front-wheel drive form, up to 25 MPG on the highway as an all-wheel drive, and a whopping 82 MPGe combined with its hybrid variant. In addition to this, the all-wheel drive trim can tow up to 3,600 pounds, meaning that boats, ATVs, and other items are towable with the new Pacifica.
In addition to this, the all-wheel drive Pacifica performs best in its class when it comes to power distribution. Its system can push 100% of its power to its rear wheels, creating better traction and safer driving on off-road terrain or during poor weather conditions. This, combined with electronic stability control, makes it easier to avoid spin-outs and oversteers. By correcting the driver’s overcorrections, electronic stability control can redistribute proper braking and take control of the vehicle’s direction, helping to prevent accidents. With up to 287 horsepower, 262 lb-ft of torque, and a 9-speed automatic transmission, the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is powerful enough to get the job done while still maintaining great mileage.
