2021 Chrysler Pacifica Changes
Starting with outside, the front end of the new 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is very round. And it’s clear Chrysler is not trying to fool anyone into thinking this is a crossover SUV. There are a few chrome trim pieces that surround the headlights and fog lights and spread from one end to another. Everything is curvy, including the grille, the body, the headlights, and fog lights. Limited and higher trims get HID headlights and LED fog lights all other trims their halogen.
The side profile is still very curvy, and there’s good contrast on this 35th Anniversary Limited, which gets a lot of chrome. Chrome window surrounds mirrors, door, handles, lower door trim, and roof rails. Also, the 20-inch polished wheels that come on as 35th Anniversary look great. Of course, with a minivan, you have to have power sliding doors, and that is standard across all trims.
The rear is more squared off and a black trim surrounding the LED taillights. Which, by the way, is standard across all trims, really matches the rear privacy glass. And with every trim level, you also get power liftgate. On the Limited and higher trims, you also get a hands-free feature for both the liftgate and sliding doors.
Inside the trunk, there is plenty of cargo room, even with the third row up. On the left side, you have a power liftgate button, and on the right side, you have a 12v outlet and the power functions for the third row. One-touch, and you can have the seats fold down in about 30 seconds. Unfortunately, it takes so long. Because the nonpower third-row seats found it on the lower trims can be folded down and unfolded in about five seconds.
With a third row down, you get a ton of cargo room. But if that isn’t enough, then you can simply fold down the second-row seats and get a massive amount of cargo room. The second row stone goes design is genius, and no one else in the industry has anything close to this. First, press the button that moves the front seat forward. Next, lift up the body covers to reveal the space underneath the floor. Fold-down the seatbacks down next, pull on the back tab, and fold a seat into the floor space. Lastly, put the cover back on and wallah the seat is gone.
Now the second row and the third row in this 35th Anniversary Limited Pacifica gets an all-black leather interior with cranberry wine stitching. By default, you get captain chairs, but you can add four additional seats in the middle for about five hundred dollars. in terms of amenities, there are two slide-out cupholders in the second row, vents on top, climate control, sun shades, and heated seats. This specific on testing comes with your connect theater system. Which has two large screens in the seatbacks along with an HDMI USB and headphone ports.

As for trim levels and pricing, the Pacifica change for the 2021 model year. The lower-trim L and LX are no longer available. They have been turned off into a separate minivan model called Voyager. The lowest base trim is now the Touring. Which gives you all the essentials such as second-row stone go seating, a power liftgate, power sliding doors.

And, lastly, of course, the same engine and transmission found throughout all the trims. The Touring starts around thirty-three thousand seven hundred and forty-five dollars.

Special leather interior with the cranberry stitching inside. 20-inch polished wheels and ventilated front seats. And this 35th Anniversary Limited is coming in around forty-five thousand seven hundred and ninety dollars.
