With seemingly more SUV models releasing every year, in an array of shapes, sizes, and amenities, you’d believe that there’d likely be no place for minivans to exist in 2020. However, the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica does all it can to prove minivan doubters wrong. The Pacifica carves out its placement on top of the minivan mountain from its typically uncharacteristic-of-a-minivan features. The Pacifica is luxurious; from its sloping front-fascia to its LED headlights and refined interior, the Pacifica far succeeds in not looking like your average minivan. How does the Pacifica really blow the competition out of the water? Performance. Read along with the folks at Great West Chrysler, to see how the performance features of the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica take it above and beyond what other minivans can offer.
That’s a Seriously Efficient V6 in Your Minivan
The centrepiece of the Pacifica is easily the 3.6L Pentastar™ VVT V6 engine, delivering 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque—that’s more power than many SUVs are capable of. That power allows a Best-in-Class towing rating as the Pacifica can haul up to 1,633 kg. Fuel economy is excellent as Stop-Start technology turns the engine off when you come to a stop. For your longer trips, the Pacifica lands a rating of 8.4L/100 km on the highway, sending you further on less. The biggest reason for the Pacifica’s highway efficiency comes from the standard 9-speed automatic transmission, with Rotary E-shift dial. To round out the suspension and handling of the Pacifica, you’ll find a MacPherson strut layout to provide a comfortable ride; combined with the Pacifica’s streamlined design, handling is both crisp and nimble. With power, efficiency, innovative engine technology, and one-of-a-kind design, the Pacifica accomplishes what most other minivans could only dream of.
