The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica brings plenty of great news. The new model will get numerous upgrades and is for sure one of the best minivans on the market. The exterior possesses fantastic aerodynamic abilities and some further changes will improve that ability even more. The interior won’t get any drastic updates, as subtle changes are more likely.
Under the hood, Chrysler claims there will be three engine choices. A single V6 unit is confirmed and the hybrid variant will also appear on the markets. The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica arrives with numerous trim levels and all models will offer seating for seven. If you opt for a gasoline model, an eight-passenger configuration is available too.

Compared to the previous generations, the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica won’t be much different. The overall shape and dimensions will stay intact, however, modern lines and styling cues are notable. The aerodynamics are great and the 20-inch alloy wheel is the latest exterior addition. New tires are a must as well and front and rear bumpers are larger now. Generally, the whole body will utilize the mix of aluminum and carbon fiber materials.
Thanks to the hard steel the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica minivan is tougher but the overall weight is reduced. The front end will get thinner and wider headlights and the grille longer than before.
