Chrysler will turn cheaper trim levels of the Pacifica minivan into an entirely separate nameplate with the 2020 Voyager. Now come the changes for the progenitor minivan. What’s different about the 2020 Pacifica? Here are five things to know.
1. Higher Trims Only
Last year’s mid-level Touring Plus trim is now simply the Touring, and it forms the base trim for the 2020 Pacifica, as the L and LX below it have set sail for the Voyager. Above the Pacifica Touring is the Touring L, Touring L Plus and Limited. Major features roughly match the four higher trims on the 2019 Pacifica, which is to say the Touring features cloth upholstery but a power driver’s seat, tri-zone automatic climate control, power-sliding doors, a power liftgate and a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
2. Plenty of Available Features
Climb the trim levels, and you can still get all the Pacifica’s goodies: dual- or tri-pane moonroofs, a larger touchscreen (8.4 inches), heated and ventilated seats, regular or Nappa leather, a power passenger seat, dual-screen rear entertainment, an integrated hand vacuum and a power-folding third-row bench.
3. New Red S Appearance Package
Available on Pacifica Limited only, the Red S Appearance Package has red Nappa leather seats with gray contrast stitching, unique silver door and gauge accents, gloss-black exterior accents and unique 20-inch wheels (18s on the Pacifica Hybrid).
4. Safety Tech Still Costs Extra
A blind spot warning system with rear cross-traffic assist is standard, but forward automatic emergency braking — an important safety feature that’s standard on the 2019 Toyota Sienna and five out of six 2019 Honda Odyssey trims — remains optional in the Pacifica. It’s part of a safety package available on all four trims that bundles in full-stop adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, semi-autonomous parking and 360-degree camera systems.
5. Plug-in Hybrid Still Available
Chrysler still offers a Pacifica Hybrid, which (despite the name) is a plug-in hybrid. With an all-electric range of more than 30 miles, it comes in Touring, Touring L and Limited trims. That’s similar to 2019 except — similar to the situation with the non-hybrid — the Touring Plus is now simply Touring. All versions get a new honeycomb-grille insert.
