So many great three-row minivans and so little time. With a plethora of options on the market, its often hard to choose, particularly with that of the upcoming 2021 Chrysler Pacifica, which made its debut at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, last month. As per usual this year’s Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna thought that they could upstage the Queen and made quite a spectacle, but in the end, this magnificent minivan made both of those lesser vans beg for mercy.
The upcoming Chrysler minivan made use of the opportunity to show off its advanced technology, rear-seat entertainment systems and second-row seating. It has always been a show-stopper since its 2017 debut when it was named Best of 2017 award winner by Cars.com and since then has gained some noteworthy enhancements for next year including new standard features, a new multimedia system and an available all-wheel-drive as well as front and rear styling.
Here are just a few reasons of how the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica stands out among its competition!
One of the best features of the new Pacifica is its latest Unconnect 5 multimedia system, the newest version of Chrysler’s exciting advanced-tech lineup. The Unconnect 5 is standard in this model and comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen with clear and distinctive graphics, dual phone pairing over Bluetooth, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Andriod Auto. This incredibly modern system runs on technology from Andriod but has a familiar Unconnect version that has been updated and is very user-friendly.
In the meantime, tweedle-dee and tweedle-loser, otherwise known as the Odyssey and Sienna have a smaller 8 inch and 7-inch touchscreen, successively, with interfaces that are less thoughtful.
Although families often bring their own devices with them on the road, rear-seat entertainment systems are still a valuable as well as an appealing feature for parents of children who are too young to be trusted with a tablet, and luckily automakers have continued to make enhancements to these systems.
The Odyssey and Sienna both offer optional Blue-ray rear-seat entertainment systems that assist in media streaming from Android devices and have screens overhead in the second row. The Odyssey has a 10.2-inch and 16.4-inch screen display that can show two different programs at the same time. However, the 2021 Pacifica still dominated in this area when it launched the Uconnect Theater, as its two 10-inch touchscreens have similar Bluetooth capabilities and Android-based streaming but also includes built-in games, including new ones like chess.
Comfort and Adaptability
Lastly, the Pacifica is more than optimal when it comes to comfort and versatility. All three vans showed to have second-row captain’s chairs at the auto show but there are still dramatic differences between them.
The Pacific’s Stow n’ Go bucket seat can fold into the floor when you feel like you don’t need them, therefore eliminating the tedious removal process. All of Pacifica’s chairs and very comfortable and supportive. It also has an interior that has a very stylish, sporty, and I dare say a somewhat futuristic type of feel.
There are conflicting opinions as to whether or not the Pacifica is the most comfortable vehicle out there but that doesn’t take away from the fact that both of the Sienna and the Honda still look like underdeveloped has-beens on the inside and provides little to no presentation to the eye.
Miami Lakes Chrysler
Those who are interested in the 2021 Pacifica will have to wait for just a bit, as it is not set to be released until the end of this year but don’t fret! Miami Lakes Automall currently has a wide range of different vehicles, especially that of 2020 Pacifica’s that have very similar features to its successor.
