The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is a minivan that can seat up to eight passengers when equipped with the second-row bench seat. In addition to the standard gas-only Pacifica, there’s also the Pacifica plug-in hybrid, which offers better fuel economy. However, the Pacifica Hybrid is only available with a seven-seat configuration.
The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 rated at 287 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque, and the engine is paired exclusively to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Pacifica plug-in hybrid pairs the same 3.6-liter V-6 to an electric motor, a CVT, and a lithium-ion battery for a combined output of 260 hp.
EPA fuel economy ratings for the gas-only Pacifica are 19/28 mpg city/highway on models with the engine stop/start system and 18/28 mpg on those without it. Plug-in hybrid variants are capable of traveling up to 33 miles on a single charge. With a full tank and a full charge, the Pacifica Hybrid is rated at 32 mpg combined and has a driving range of 570 miles.
