The Chrysler Pacifica has been given a thorough overhaul for the 2021 model year. The van will now be offered in an all-wheel-drive variant and has fresh exterior styling. It also has gotten a long list of new technology and added standard safety features. But before that model arrives at dealerships, many of its features, including all-wheel drive, will be available on the 2020 Pacifica AWD Launch Edition.
The 2020 Pacifica Launch Edition builds on the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L model and is equipped with all-wheel drive. It includes the S Appearance package that includes a Black Noise AWD badge, Black Noise Pacifica and Chrysler wing badging, and rolls on upgraded 18-inch wheels in the new “Foreshadow” finish. Gloss Black features on the headlamp eyebrows, grille surrounds, rear valance, and daylight opening.
