Despite several reports, the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica most likely won’t feature bigger changes. This minivan has been introduced two years ago and it is considered as one of the best minivans on the market. It comes with a high level of comfort, long list of standard equipment and amazing mpg ratings. Considering all these qualities, as well as the fact that this isn’t very competitive segment, there is no real need for bigger updates at the moment.
When it comes to the exterior design, this model comes with a classic minivan appearance. Besides familiar shape, it features Chrysler’s new design language, which utilizes a lot of smooth lines. The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica shouldn’t feature any bigger change, though it won’t be a surprise to see some novelties in terms of wheels and exterior colors.
Along with fuel economy, the interior design is definitely the strongest point of this minivan. With this one, you can count on plenty of benefits. First of all, this model is very spacious. There is more than enough room to accommodate 7 passengers. Also, the seats are amazingly comfortable, perfect for long journeys. When it comes to materials quality, it is on a pretty high level. The Honda Oddysey is probably the only model that beats Pacifica in this aspect. On the other side, the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica will have one big trump in its pocket. It’s about Stow-n-Go seats. These seats make the minivan without any doubt the most flexible model in class because such design allows hauling any combination of people or cargo. Finally, there is a long list of tech features, which includes 7-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, USB ports and smartphone integration already in base models.
The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica will continue with two familiar powertrain options in the offer. Base models will come with a familiar 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, which has a max output of 287 horsepower. Acceleration seems ok, while fuel economy is very good. It goes around 18 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. The optional plug-in hybrid is definitely a great choice if you want great mpg ratings. This version comes with the same V6 engine, but with a help of two electric motors. With this one, you can count on amazing 32 mph in a combined ride, which is by far the best result in the class. In the all-electric model, it features a max range of 33 miles, while the economy is equivalent to 84 mpg.
2020 Chrysler Pacifica Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no bigger changes to come, the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica should come late in the next year. Base models should cost around $27,000. On the other side, the hybrid version starts at $40,000.
