Minivans are made for families, and if you have had your heart set on making the jump to the minivan world so your family can finally have more room on grocery night and on trips across the state, you may find yourself wondering which minivan is going to do the job. The 2021 Toyota Sienna, newly redesigned and with a hybrid powertrain across its entire lineup, is an ideal fit for just about any family, though it is not without its share of competition. Let’s take a look at a 2021 Toyota Sienna vs 2021 Chrysler Pacifica comparison to help inform your minivan research.
2021 Toyota Sienna
2021 Chrysler Pacifica

||Base Fuel Economy||19 City / 28 Hwy MPG|
|8 (7-passenger configurations available)
||Base Seating Capacity||7 (8-passenger configurations available)|
|33.5 Cubic Feet
||Cargo Volume Behind Third Row||32.3 Cubic Feet|
|Standard||Apple CarPlay® & Android Auto™
Given that the Toyota Sienna uses a hybrid powertrain on all models, it should come as no surprise that its base fuel economy far exceeds the fuel economy delivered by the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica. In all fairness, a hybrid variant of the Pacifica is also available, but that model is a plug-in electric vehicle, which is a whole other ballgame. With the Sienna, you won’t have to try to choose—it's just a hybrid across the board, with remarkable fuel economy.
The Sienna also begins with eight-passenger seating, so you can have the maximum seating possibilities right out of the gate. If you want eight passengers in the Chrysler, you’ll have to pay more for higher trims. Behind the third row, the Sienna offers a bit more in the way of cargo volume, so you can carry plenty of your items with you even when the Sienna is fully seated.
This is just a taste of what the Sienna has to offer families. Are you in the San Francisco area and want to learn more? Contact us today!
