The 2021 Pacifica is a spacious, 7-seater minivan that stands out in its class. It offers reliability as an everyday commuter vehicle while packing enough performance and versatility to tow a trailer or camper behind it on family getaways. Combine all of this with innovative tech and safety features, and it’s easy to see why it’s become such a hit with families. For a full picture, here are all the key reasons why families are loving the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica.

Surprisingly Strong Performance

With both a gas and hybrid model available in multiple trim levels, the Pacifica offers incredible performance and smooth rides in both. Gas models are fitted with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that delivers 287 horsepower. Hybrid models, while sharing the same 3.6-liter engine as their gas counterparts, boast an impressive 260 horsepower.

Both vehicles receive seamlessly smooth shifting from an automatic transmission, though they differ slightly with a 9-speed found in the fuel models and an EFlite Si-EV in the hybrid vehicles. If you plan on taking family trips with a trailer in tow, the gas models are perfectly equipped for this. Unlike other minivans on the market, the Pacifica holds its own with the ability to tow up to 3,600 pounds.

A Spacious and Accessible Cabin

Inside the cabin, you’ll find three rows of seating along with the ability to fully fold down the second and third-row seats if you need more space. This provides an impressive 140.5 cubic feet of total cargo volume, perfect for groceries or for camping gear or luggage when on long trips.

The Pacifica also offers hands-free options when it comes to accessing the cabin from its sides or rear. Both the power-operated sliding doors and liftgate can be opened with your foot instead of your hands when you’re carrying items back and forth to the vehicle.

Premium Entertainment On Trips

For family outings, the vehicle’s Uconnect 5 infotainment system features a beautiful 10.1-inch touchscreen display. This allows you and your family members to use voice commands to make calls, access apps, play song selections from your phones, and listen to podcasts with Sirius XM satellite radio.

For times when you need to keep tabs on children in the backseats, there’s also an available FamCam system, which has a split-view screen so that you can see things from different angles. Also, if anyone in your group leaves their phone charger at home, a convenient wireless charging pad is available for the center console area.

Safety Features for Peace of Mind

Because the Pacifica was designed with families in mind, it offers many advanced safety monitoring systems as standard features. This includes an emergency pedestrian braking system, which can apply the brakes automatically when a pedestrian nears too close to your vehicle, as well as a blind spot monitoring feature for alerting you to vehicles hidden on either side of yours.

To ensure that you’re staying within your lane on the road, LaneSense with Lane Departure is the perfect co-pilot. It will not only alert you if you start to stray towards other lanes but will also gently steer you back to your lane’s center if needed.

Versatile, spacious enough for the whole family, and boasting the latest entertainment and safety features to keep everyone secure while having fun, the 2021 Pacifica has it all.
