2021 Chrysler Pacifica Review
The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is a well-furnished minivan that boasts a range of technology and safety features, an expansive cabin, and a smooth and comfortable ride. Drivers in Findlay, Tiffin, and Fremont, OH can learn more about this sharp minivan with this 2021 Chrysler Pacifica review from Findlay CDJR.
The Pacifica comes with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that makes 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The engine has plenty of power for daily driving on city streets and the highway. The ride quality of the Pacifica is about as comfortable as it gets, soaking up potholes and broken pavement for passenger comfort. Despite its size, the Pacifica maintains its composure through tight turns and on curving roads. For inclement weather, the Pacifica offers an all-wheel-drive option. When properly equipped, this powerful minivan can tow up to 3,600 pounds.
The Pacifica has seating for eight people in three rows of seats in the standard configuration. If you swap the second-row bench seat for captain’s chairs, the capacity is seven people. The seats are plush and comfortable in all three rows, and adults have plenty of space to lay out and unwind on long trips. Cloth upholstery and power-adjustable seating are standard, as well as the Stow ‘n Go second- and third-row folding seats. Nappa leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, and a panoramic sunroof are available. With all the seats up, the Pacifica has 32.3 cubic feet of space behind the third row, which expands to 87.5 cubic feet when the seats are folded. When both rows are folded flat, the total cargo capacity is 140.5 cubic feet. The Pacifica also possesses the Stow ‘n Go seats, which fold into the floor simply rather than having to be taken out, and convenience features like power-folding seats and hands-free power-sliding rear doors.
The Pacifica comes with the Uconnect® 5 infotainment system. With its large display and helpful features, it’s highly user-friendly. A 10.1-inch touch screen is standard and includes wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ for smartphone compatibility. HD radio, SiriusXM® satellite radio, and Amazon Alexa integration are also available. Optional features include navigation, premium Alpine® or Harman Kardon® sound systems, an overhead DVD player, wireless device charging, and a 4G Wi-Fi hot spot. For the kids, you can add a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system and the FamCAM, which lets you keep an eye on your passengers while you drive. Plenty of safety features arrive standard for the Pacifica, which offer more awareness and protection from the front, sides, and rear using alert systems and sensors. Some of these features include Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Path Detection System, Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning Plus, Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking, LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist.
