Five Things About the 2020 Pacifica and More
Chrysler made quite a splash last week when it announced not only the upcoming 2020 Pacifica model, but also introduced the upcoming Voyager model that’s slated to replace the low-tier trims of the existing Pacifica. After such an announcement it’s obvious that there are changes for the progenitor minivan. What’s new about the 2020 Pacifica? Here are five things prospective buyers should know.
The plug-in hybrid variant of the Pacifica – the Pacifica Hybrid – remains a substantial part of the lineup. The all-electric range offers a 30-mile range and comes in three trims: Touring, Touring L and Limited. The old Touring Plus trim now simply becomes the Touring trim. All variants, hybrid and non-hybrid receive an upgraded honeycomb-grille insert.
Advanced Safety Tech
Still standard on the minivan is a blind spot monitoring system with rear-cross traffic alert. Optional on the Pacifica is forward automatic emergency braking that’s part of a safety package. The safety package is available on all four trims and sold as an upgrade package that bundles lane departure warning, 360-degree camera systems, semi-autonomous parking, and full-stop adaptive cruise control.
Plenty of Features
The higher the trim, the better the features and accents. It’s not uncommon to find dual- or tri-pane moonroofs, heated and ventilated seats, Nappa leather, an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display, a power passenger seat, an integrated hand vacuum, dual-screen rear entertainment system, and a power-folding third-row bench throughout the Pacifica lineup.
Like we mentioned earlier, what used to be the mid-level Touring Plus trim is now simply referred to as the Touring. For the 2020 model year, the Touring trim is the base trim as the prior L and LX trims are now part of the Voyager lineup. Now the Pacifica lineup consists of four trims – Touring, Touring L, Touring L Plus and Limited – instead of the six, it used to offer in the past. Many of the 2020 features match the same features on the higher four trims of the 2019 Pacifica.
Red S Appearance Package
There’s a new package available on the Pacifica Limited only. The Red S Appearance Package includes unique silver door and gauge accents, unique 20-inch wheels, gloss-black exterior accents, and red Nappa leather seats with gray contrast stitching.
Looking for an introductory minivan instead? That’s what Chrysler offers with the newly-introduced 2020 Voyager. Advertised as a “no compromise minivan,” the Voyager will offer buyers entry-level prices coupled with advanced safety features such as blind spot warning and parking assist. Experts believe that Chrysler will choose to differentiate the prices between the Voyager and the Pacifica via rebates, but nothing is certain. Future advanced safety features for the Voyager would be features such as automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.
