Detroit Automakers Have Big Plans for 2021
If you’re wondering about the new models Ford, Fiat Chrysler and General Motors have in store for 2021, we’ve got details on some of their favorites.
Chrysler’s consistently in-demand Pacifica, minivan is back, offering what the automaker calls “the pinnacle of family rides.” Chrysler has made a 10.1-inch dashboard touchscreen standard along with several safety features. The Pacifica’s base model is the Touring, which, according to Car and Driver has a base price starting at $36,540. If you’re in the market for something a little showier, you can check out the Pacifica Pinnacle with Nappa leather and a wood-trimmed interior.
“For more than 35 years, Chrysler has led innovation, and the new 2021 Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica AWD … are designed to build on that position,” said Tim Kuniskis, global head of Alfa Romeo and head of passenger cars. “The new premium Pinnacle model, and the new 2021 Pacifica is America’s most capable and most technologically advanced minivan.”
Over at GM, the Yukon line of SUVs is getting a lot of attention, with the Next Generation Yukon SLE/SLT starting at $50,700. These vehicles offer 16-20 mpg, the SLE seats up to nine passengers and the Yukon AT4 full-size offers a four-wheel drive configuration. Some of the line’s exterior features include the satin-chrome multidimensional Denali grill and advanced lighting with LED headlamps.
Meanwhile, Ford is bringing back the Bronco, including its first-ever four-door version. The 4×4 Bronco offers “smart off-road technology” and select models have stowable roof panels and doors. Want to skip the beaten path and go off-road? The Bronco offers segment-exclusive digital trail mapping that allows planning, recording and sharing from an all-in-one app. Base MSRP for the Ford Bronco is $29,995.
“Our dream for Bronco was not just to design a family of vehicles people would love, but to build a community around people who love to go off-road and get into the wild, who want to customize and personize their Broncos, and share experiences with each other,” said Jim Hackett, Ford president and CEO.
