Chrysler Pacifica AWD Arrives a Year Early

June 12th, 2020 by

The newly redesigned 2021 Chrysler Pacifica with all-wheel-drive (AWD) not only combines a fresh new look and feel, but it also offers the most standard safety features of any vehicle in its segment. The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is scheduled to hit dealerships during the fall of this year (2020), but AWD is arriving a year ahead of schedule for buyers who can’t wait. Chrysler opened the order books and dealers can now place orders for the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica AWD Launch Edition. This move makes the AWD capability available for the current model-year Pacifica minivan with its all-weather-capable, fully automatic and seamless systems.

“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. 

The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica AWD Launch Edition is exclusively available on the Touring L trim, and it’s 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 adds the S Appearance Package as an option for prospective buyers. The package  includes 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 help complete the look. The Pacifica AWD Launch Edition also comes with Michelin Premier self-sealing tires.

On the interior of the cabin, the all-black S Appearance Package also features McKinley leather seats with Light Diesel Grey stitching accents, brushed metal hydro bezels, and a standard 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment display. Other available packages from Chrysler 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 to order at Chrysler dealerships nationwide, including our very own Cape Coral Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
