For the 2021 model year, Chrysler is bringing some changes to its Pacifica minivan. These include some body styling updates, especially to the front and rear, a new top-line luxury trim level called the Pinnacle, and the option of all-wheel drive.
Unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show, the all-weather-capable AWD system for the Pacifica will arrive later this year. This mechanical system is derived from the viscous coupling system used in the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Challenger, and other Fiat-Chrysler vehicles. Importantly, the Pacifica’s AWD system will not interfere with the Stow-n-Go fold-down seating that creates a flat loading floor in the van.
