Chrysler introduced the updated Pacifica minivan at the Chicago Motor Show. The model received a modified appearance and interior, a modernized multimedia system, and also became available with all-wheel drive.

A restyled minivan can be distinguished from its predecessor thanks to a modified grille with a different pattern, upgraded LED headlights and flashlights, as well as wheels of a different design.

The Chrysler Pacifica is now available with an all-wheel drive system that is capable of shifting up to 100% of the torque to the rear axle or to the wheels with the best traction when coated. The company noted that this is a “unique option” for cars of this class.

All-wheel drive versions received a rear anti-roll bar, as well as a retuned suspension with 20 mm increased ground clearance.

Chrysler Pacifica is offering the all-new Uconnect 5 multimedia system with an enlarged touch screen up to 10.1 inches, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, as well as Alexa voice assistant. In addition, the minivan is available with 12 Type A and Type C ports, as well as a wireless charging station for smartphones with LED indicators.

The engine lineup remains the same. It included a 3.6-liter gasoline V6 with a capacity of 287 hp as well as a hybrid power plant based on the same engine. The vehicle is capable of driving more than 50 kilometers solely on electric traction, and in combined mode, the power reserve exceeds 800 kilometers.
