Chrysler gave its popular Pacifica minivan a hefty facelift for the 2021 model year. It debuted at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show in February, which feels like prehistoric times amid the global coronavirus pandemic. It launched with updated styling, new features, a new trim level, and expanded all-wheel-drive availability. It didn’t launch with a price, but Chrysler has finally announced starting MSRP for all Pacifica trim levels.
The big news here is that entry-level pricing increases by a relatively light $1,000 compared to the 2020 model. The Pacifica Touring starts at $35,045, and that gets you a plethora of standard equipment including a host of safety systems. Automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot and cross-traffic detection, and lane-departure warning are part of the basic package. The Uconnect 5 system with its 10.1-inch touchscreen is also standard, and power still comes from a 287-horsepower (214-kilowatt) 3.6-liter V6.

If you want AWD, prices start at $38,040 and that’s actually $2,200 less compared to 2020. It’s not really an apples-to-apples comparison, as AWD was only available on the launch edition that had some extra visual pizzaz. The Pacifica Hybrid clicks in just under $40,000, while at the far end of the spectrum, the new range-topping Pacifica Pinnacle AWD bursts past $50,000 a starting MSRP of $53,390.
Here’s a full breakdown of models and starting prices, not including a destination fee of $1,495.
