    Interesting article. Thank you.

    You state that minivans with AWD cannot use a spare, thus special tires. Is this due to space limitations? Couldn’t a full-size spare / tire be used to replace a flat tire - without affecting the AWD feature?

    So, this is a mechanical AWD system and not the eAWD that was talked about here several years ago?

    Does anyone else see some 300M in the design? And some 2005 300C? I like this redesign.

    There probably isn't room to carry a full size spare (or a "tall" compact tire, or any other tire with the same outside diameter). That's my guess.

    That's what I gathered from the article too. Cool!

    I'll take 8!

    This does make it look more like a crossover from the front.

    Also there's a misspelling in the first paragraph. You forgot an "n" in Pinnacle:

    "After years of rumors, stretching from before we even knew its name, the Chrysler Pacifica will finally get all wheel drive. It’s also getting numerous other new features, and a new model at the pinnacle of the range — the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica Pinacle."

    Wow, it looks much better up front and much better out back.
    I think it still needs some love on the rear quarters.
    AWD is BIG!

    Will it have rich Corinthian leather?

    Wow. It looks awesome! The sporty front reminds me of a modern take on the 96 vans. I think they are trying to do things with the interior to outclass everyone else like they did with the Ram. I am truly impressed with the effort made on this mid cycle refresh. Will the Voyager stay as-is?

    The Detroit News is reporting the Voyager will not receive the update or AWD for the 2020 or 2021 model: All-wheel drive returns in redesigned 2021 Chrysler Pacifica minivan (at https://www.detroitnews.com/story/business/autos/chrysler/2020/02/06/2021-chrysler-pacifica-minivan-redesign-all-wheel-drive/4591555002/ )

    Guys I'm afraid :eek::eek:, Chrysler has made me love a minivan?!?! Now I demand they make my crossover, because looking at this thing I know it's going to be hotness.

    This is such an improvement.
    Now if only they released the 7-seat SUV...

    This looks inspired by the 1998 refresh of the Town and Country. It's beautiful, and my family has bought AWD Chrysler minivans since it was offered in '91, so maybe they'll finally upgrade.

    I'd immediately order a midsize Chrysler crossover that had this level of content and a Pinnacle trim level.

    Totally thought the same thing. I had a 1998 Town and Country LXI and that was the first vehicle I thought of when I saw the pictures
