Although the cold, snowy winter is behind us, Chrysler has announced that the 2020 Pacifica AWD Launch Edition is available to order. What’s interesting is that Pacifica AWD Launch Edition does not have the refreshed exterior that’s going to arrive for the 2021 Pacifica.

“Reaction was overwhelmingly positive when we announced that the new 2021 Chrysler Pacifica will offer AWD capability. We know there is 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,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America.

If all-wheel drive is something that you need, the Pacifica’s all-wheel-drive system can send up to 100 percent of the available torque to the rear axle when more traction is needed. The AWD system can also deactivate when it’s not needed to improve fuel efficiency.

The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica AWD Launch Edition is based on the Touring L model and gets the S Appearance with the Black Noise exterior trim package. It also rides on 18-inch wheels in the new “Foreshadow” finish that are wrapped in Michelin Premier self-sealing tires.

Inside there are McKinley leather seats with Light Diesel Grey stitching.

The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica AWD Launch Edition is priced at $40,240 and it’s scheduled to arrive in the third quarter of this year.
