Chrysler is giving the 2020 Pacifica an AWD Launch Edition. Aimed at customers in search of a minivan that has more traction during winter or rainy season, it fetches a starting price of $40,240,

However, the refreshed styling introduced in February this year is nowhere to be found on the model. According to FCA, these will be available in the upcoming 2021 edition, and the one getting an AWD this time is still the current generation.

“Reaction was overwhelmingly positive when we announced that the new 2021 Chrysler Pacifica will offer AWD capability. We know there is [a] demand for AWD capability along with Stow ‘n Go seating, and the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica AWD Launch Edition allows us to get our customers the all-weather capability they want even sooner,” Head of FCA Passenger Cars in North America Tim Kuniskis said.

For the interior, the vehicle comes with black McKinley leather seats, contrasting Light Diesel Grey stitching, and brushed metal trim in the cabin. Optional add-ons, meanwhile, include the navigation and tri-pane panoramic sunroof.

The all-wheel-drive setup can deliver up to 100% of available torque to the rear axle. Too, it is capable of disconnecting to boost fuel efficiency. Moreover, there are several ways to activate the AWD system such as cold exterior temperature, rough road conditions, and using windshield wipers.
