Under the Hood
The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid continues with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 gas engine that uses an Atkinson-cycle combustion system for improved efficiency. The gas engine gets teamed with an eFlite electrically variable transmission system. The EVT uses two electric motors — one for driving wheels and the other for generating power. The system also employs a one-way clutch that allows the generator to transfer power to specific wheels as necessary. Total output is 260 horsepower directed to the front wheels. Although Chrysler did add AWD to the 2021 Pacifica, it is not yet available on the Hybrid.
