Overview

The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is a leader among today's minivans. It has seating for up to eight passengers in a roomy, quiet interior. It also features unique Stow 'n Go seats that fold into the floor to maximize cargo space. Offered in four trims, the Pacifica uses a standard 3.6-liter V6 paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission with a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The Pacifica is equipped with the latest version of Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system, one of the most intuitive systems available. A plug-in hybrid variant is available with front-wheel drive only. The only other hybrid minivan is the Toyota Sienna, which isn't a plug-in but does have an optional all-wheel drive.

What's New for 2021

The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica boasts a refreshed interior and exterior styling, a new interior camera, and the latest version of Uconnect infotainment with a 10.1-inch touchscreen and quicker responses.

Trims and Pricing

Chrysler offers the 2021 Pacifica and 2021 Pacifica Hybrid in four trim levels: Touring, Touring L, Limited, and Pinnacle. All hybrids are front-wheel drive. The Touring and Touring L with the gas engine has standard front-wheel or optional all-wheel drive ($2,995). The Limited and Pinnacle with the gas engine are all-wheel drive only.

The base Touring has 17-inch wheels, an eight-way power driver's seat with four-way power lumbar, cloth seating surfaces, a 10.1-inch infotainment screen, and seating for eight passengers. It starts at $37,315 (including a $1,495 destination fee).

Our top pick, the Touring L ($40,615), adds perforated leather seat trim, driver's seat memory, rear ambient lighting, and a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel. It's a modest price increase to improve the interior's comfort levels.

The Limited is priced from $47,290 with a hands-free power-sliding door and liftgate, tri-pane panoramic sunroof, integrated vacuum cleaner, 13-speaker Alpine audio system, and heated second-row seats.

The Pinnacle sits at the top of the lineup at $52,290. It has 20-inch wheels, second-row captain's chairs, quilted Caramel Nappa leather seats, second-row lumbar pillows, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, and Uconnect Theater with wireless streaming.

The Pacifica Hybrid is available exclusively with second-row captain's chairs. The base Touring starts at $42,115, with the top Pinnacle model priced at $53,045.

The Toyota Sienna is a more affordable hybrid option with a starting price of only $35,000. The Kia Sedona is a more economical option for those who want a gas engine. However, it doesn't offer the range of trims or luxury options of the Pacifica.

  • What is MSRP?

    MSRP stands for Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price, sometimes also known as the sticker price. Because this price is only a suggestion, a dealer can choose to sell a vehicle above—or, more often, below—MSRP.

  • What is Market Average?

    Based on actual recent transactions other buyers have made, the Market Average shows you the average price others paid for vehicles similar to the one you want, while taking into account that most of these vehicles have different option combinations from the ones you specified.

  • Statewide, Regional, and National Data

    If there are insufficient transactions in your area, we calculate your Market Average by gathering statewide, regional, or national data. Because this data can come from a large geographical area it may not be as representative of your local market.

Nationwide Data

This graph helps you recognize a fair price for the Chrysler Pacifica by displaying national new car sales transactions from the past 30 days. This data can come from a large geographical area, so may not be as representative of your local market. The prices have been normalized to account for transactions involving different configurations of this model.

Engine and Performance

The Pacifica uses a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 287 horsepower that quickly gets this minivan up to highway speeds. Its smooth nine-speed automatic transmission makes good use of the engine's power, quietly doing its job without excessive noise intruding into the cabin. The Pacifica handles well and is composed and controlled, even during quick highway lane changes that tend to make large vehicles feel unwieldy. Braking is solid, and the ride is impressively smooth and quiet. Once the kids fall asleep, they'll stay that way for the duration of the trip.

The Pacifica Hybrid has a 3.6-liter V6 hybrid engine paired to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Although CVTs are notoriously loud under hard acceleration, this one stays quiet even with a heavy foot on the accelerator. Power is again well managed with a peaceful ride, primarily when operating in electric-only mode.

Regardless of which Pacifica you choose, it's responsive, quiet, and ideally suited to carrying the family around town or on road trips. While the Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey both offer comfortable rides, the Pacifica has a better suspension feel and less road noise.

Fuel Economy

The Environmental Protection Agency rates the front-wheel-drive Chrysler Pacifica at 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg for highway driving. All-wheel drive drops those numbers to 17 city/25 highway. This mileage is comparable to the Honda Odyssey. Buyers looking for maximum fuel economy should consider the Pacifica Hybrid. It provides 32 miles of electric-only range and delivers 82 mpg combined using gas and electric power, beating the Toyota Sienna's efficiency.

Interior

The Chrysler Pacifica is an attractive minivan with an upscale interior and room for eight. Optional captain's chairs can replace the second-row bench, but that configuration drops seating to seven. The interior is comfortable and spacious, with top trims offering luxury touches, such as premium leathers. There are cubbies galore for storage and plenty of cupholders, something you can't have too many of with a family. It's easy for everyone to get comfortable, even in the third-row seats.

Hauling cargo is a breeze. The Stow 'n Go seats fold into the floor, making it easy to reconfigure the cabin at a moment's notice. With all seats upright, there are 32.3 cubic feet behind the third row. That measurement increases to 87.5 cubic feet with the second row folded down and 140.5 cubics with the second and third rows folded flat. While the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, and Kia Sedona have comparable interior space, the Pacifica offers a more premium cabin.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The Uconnect 5 infotainment system in the Pacifica is easily one of the most intuitive available. It comes with a standard 10.1-inch infotainment screen, six-speaker audio system, wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, and dual phone connectivity. Navigation and Wi-Fi are available on higher trims along with either a 13-speaker Alpine or 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. There's also an available rear-seat entertainment system and Chrysler's new "FamCAM" interior camera, which lets the driver monitor passengers in the rear seats more easily. Neither the Toyota Sienna nor the Honda Odyssey matches Pacifica's impressive screen size or available technology.

Safety

The Chrysler Pacifica earned a top overall rating of five stars in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) crash tests. It also made a top rating of "Good" in all crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Pacifica has numerous features, including standard automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path detection, and lane-departure warning. This year, the Pacifica is equipped with 14 standard features, such as LED lights and pedestrian automatic emergency braking.

Chrysler Pacifica vs. the Competition

The Chrysler Pacifica offers plenty of choices with front-wheel or all-wheel drive, gas or hybrid models, and four well-equipped trims. No matter which you choose, it's an upscale minivan with a roomy interior whose Pinnacle trim approaches luxury levels. It's pricier than the Honda Odyssey but delivers a more premium experience. The Toyota Sienna combines its hybrid powertrain with all-wheel drive, but it can't match Pacifica's smooth ride and interior quality. Busy families who want the convenience of a minivan with an attractive interior and a quiet ride will find the Chrysler Pacifica a perfect fit.

The Starting Market Average is a proprietary mathematical calculation based on actual recent transactions. It provides a statistically accurate understanding of what other buyers are paying for the least expensive configuration of this vehicle. Adjustments to the calculation beyond make, model, and trim are normalized based on detailed, anonymized transaction information. This accounts for the fact that most or all recently-sold vehicles included different option combinations. The data underlying the Starting Market Average calculation are filtered for extreme outliers and subjected to a weighted averaging process that considers factors such as the recency of transactions and the timing of data lags. In certain instances, the calculated result is adjusted to take account of abrupt changes in the market that may not yet be fully reflected by recent transaction prices. In all cases where the Starting Market Average is shown there is sufficient sample size and transaction detail to be statistically reliable.
