2021 Chrysler Pacifica vs 2021 Kia Sedona

The Chrysler Pacifica has been the most-awarded minivan for the last four years and has accumulated over 135 industry accolades and honors. Now for the 2021 model year, the Pacifica has been elevated to a whole new level. The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is bringing a new range of standard safety features, a new AWD powertrain, new exterior design cues, and a new top-of-line Pinnacle model. This redesigned Chrysler offers the latest Uconnect 5 system with a standard 10.1-inch touchscreen and an available Uconnect Theater Family Package bundle.


This minivan lineup consists of the Touring, Touring L, Limited, and Pinnacle trim levels, all four of which are available with a gas-powered or hybrid powertrain. Many shoppers here at Classic CDJRF wonder how the Pacifica stacks up against the rest of the minivan competition.
