We can’t recall the last the minivan war flared up so dramatically. Even if all players in the segment are new or all-new for 2021, FCA still has quite the lead. Now that the Chrysler Pacifica has been split into two models, the new Pacifica and the Voyager, FCA wants to increase its offering in the segment with everything from value to technology, luxury, and performance.
The early and mid-2000s, when Ford, GM (Pontiac, Saturn, Oldsmobile, Chevrolet, Buick), Chrysler (Dodge), Honda, Toyota, Mazda, Nissan, and Kia all have minivans of their own, was the last time there was a war in the segment. In fact, so strong was the minivan segment that Volkswagen absolutely wanted in, but we’re not supposed to speak of the Routan anymore…
Of them all, the Chrysler magic van, the Dodge Grand Caravan, has reigned supreme in FCA has no plans on giving in. Production of the new more macho-looking 2021 Pacifica has begun at FCA’s Windsor (Ontario) Assembly Plant with the first units arriving in showrooms come December.
“FCA invented the minivan segment, and the new-for-2021 Chrysler Pacifica continues to drive our leadership and innovation,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “Whether it’s all-weather driving capability with Stow ‘n Go seating or more than 80 MPGe and no range anxiety with the only plug-in hybrid minivan in the segment, the new Chrysler Pacifica gives families what they want and options that best fit their busy lives.”
