Finding the one that best suits your family however, can be troublesome.

One the left side, we have the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica and on the right, the 2021 Kia Sedona. Keep reading to see just how they stack up and which one we believe you should go home in!

2021 Chrysler Pacifica Power & Handling

There are two powertrain options available for the Chrysler Pacifica. The main powertrain option is a 3.6-liter V6 engine that generates 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard but all-wheel drive is available. The second powertrain option is a plug-in hybrid that utilizes the same engine with the addition of a battery pack and two electric motors that creates 260 horsepower and 33 miles of all-electric driving range.

2021 Kia Sedona Power & Handling

One engine also powers the entire Kia Sedona trim lineup. This engine is a 3.3-liter V6 that generates 276 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is the match to this engine and all power is sent to the front wheels only. No option for all-wheel drive with the Sedona.
