The Chrysler Pacifica minivan model replaced its predecessor with the Town & Country name in 2016. The car began to look much more modern, solid and prettier.
In the front, there is a certain amount of aggressiveness in the “look” of the headlights. Also, the mesh radiator grille, the massive bumper with a large air intake and the embossed hood are in good harmony here. The profile part of the car is notable for the chrome edging of the windows, convex “ribs” along the body and a smoothly “descending” roof.
Behind the “American” everything also looks good – a large luggage compartment door, a low laconic bumper and attractively shaped original lanterns – perfectly complement the external image.
At the moment, Chrysler Pacifica is equipped with one gasoline naturally aspirated engine with the following characteristics:
- Number of cylinders – 6 V-shaped;
- Working volume – 3.6 liters;
- Power – 280 hp;
- The number of valves is 24.
The torque is transmitted to the front axle via an automatic 9-band transmission. Acceleration from zero to the first hundred takes only 7.4 seconds, and the maximum speed is 210 km / h. In mixed mode, the minivan consumes 10.8 liters of fuel per hundred kilometers.

Minivans are superior than SUVs when it comes to transporting people and goods—a fact that more customers should accept—and the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is our current top pick and recipient of an Editors’ Choice award. The Pacifica is a well-designed, comfortable family van with enthusiastic driving characteristics. Both a regular V-6 engine and a plug-in hybrid engine are available, and in our evaluation, each proved to be very fuel-efficient.
The second and third rows collapse completely flat to transform the Pacifica into a large cargo van, making it ideal for transporting big things. The Voyager name was reintroduced on entry-level versions of the Pacifica in 2020, so we’ll evaluate them separately.
The standard Pacifica is sluggish (it reaches 60 mph in 7.3 seconds, around mid-pack in terms of performance), and it feels somewhat sluggish around town. It comes with a 287-hp 3.6-liter V-6 and a nine-speed automatic gearbox as standard.
The Pacifica Hybrid is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that makes 260 horsepower and two electric motors, each backed up by a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery. Its zero to 60 mph time was 0.5 seconds slower than the gas-powered version in our testing. We’ll conduct instrumented testing on the all-wheel-drive Pacifica as soon as possible, and we’ll update this review with its results.
