2020 Chrysler Pacifica AWD Launch Edition Coming Soon to a Dealer Near You

June 9th, 2020 by

Chrysler is going above and beyond for its newly redesigned 2021 Chrysler Pacifica with all-wheel-drive (AWD) capability, combining not only a fresh new look and feel, but also the most standard safety features of any vehicle in the industry. The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is slated to hit dealerships later this year (2020), but AWD is making an early arrival for those who just cannot wait. The automaker has opened the order books as dealers can now order the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica AWD Launch Edition, making it available for the current model-year Pacifica with its all-weather-capable, fully automatic and seamless AWD system.

“Reaction was overwhelmingly positive when we announced that the new 2021 Chrysler Pacifica will offer AWD capability. We know there is a demand for AWD capability along with Stow ‘n Go seating, and the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica AWD Launch Edition allows us to get our customers the all-weather capability they want even sooner. The Pacifica offers families solutions and with the 2020 Pacifica AWD Launch Edition, we’re delivering the most advanced system in its class, and one that engages without any driver input, to help owners get where they want to go in any type of weather,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romero and Head of Passenger Cars — Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA — North America. 

Exclusively available on the Touring L trim, the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica AWD Launch Edition is equipped with the same exact AWD system that’s going to be offered on the 2021 Pacifica. The Pacifica is officially the only vehicle in its class to pair AWD and exclusive Stow ‘n Go seating, while additionally being the only vehicle in its segment able to transfer all available engine torque exclusively to the rear wheels, or whichever wheels have the most available traction. Additionally, the Pacifica AWD system can even sense when AWD is no longer necessary, stopping the driveshaft from spinning — yet another class-exclusive feature that improves overall efficiency. 

The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica AWD Launch Edition also offers buyers the S Appearance Package, including a Black Noise AWD badge, along with Black Noise Pacifica and Chrysler wing badging, and rides on upgraded 18-inch wheels in the all-new “Foreshadow” finish. Gloss Black headlamp trim, grille surrounds, and rear valance all complete the S Appearance Package. The Pacifica AWD Launch Edition also includes Michelin Premier self-sealing tires. On the inside of the cabin, the all-black S Appearance Package includes McKinley leather seats with Light Diesel Grey stitching accents, brushed metal hydro bezels, and a standard 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment display. Other optional packages include features such as Uconnect Theater, Uconnect Navigation, a tri-pane panoramic sunroof, trailer tow, Advanced SafetyTec, KeySense, and the Premium Group Package. 

The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica AWD Launch Edition is now available for ordering at Chrysler dealerships nationwide, including our very own Hollywood Chrysler Jeep.
