2020 Pacifica from rumors to reality

What changes will we see in 2020?
When will we see the official information?

Let's discuss it based on the rumors and educated guesses.
A fleet management company says that the 2020 should be available to order right now, so it is about time we have a discussion

My thoughts:
The last generation Grand Caravan was introduced in 2008, had its first major update in 2011. It raises the chances that Pacifica will follow a similar timeline.


FCA announced a new generation of Android based entertainment systems, with rollout starting this year. https://www.motorauthority.com/news/...cloud-services Considering problems with the current Uconnect, Pacifica should be a strong candidate for the new system.



The AWD rumors are strong, but light on details. Will it be a traditional or a Hybrid based system?



Somewhat off topic, Toyota says it will offer a "dark" package for 2020 Sienna, which means that the old design will continue for at least another year.

There's probably no chance, but I'd love to see the giant Connect screen that the Dodge Ram has!

The RAM system is still based on Uonnect 4. If Pacifica will get an upgrade, it will be to the new Android system (Uconnect 5?).

Yea but the screen isn't the OS. In fact I believe its separate from the actual CPU unit. So they "could" still put the giant screen on the Pac and run the latest OS.

But you're right, they need faster processors, especially for the UConnect theater! I will say that FCA isn't afraid of technology, some of their newest designs have USB-C port! Wow!

Over-the-air updates sound nice. I haven't had one yet (had my vehicle for only a week), but I believe the current PacHy update process takes 6 hours at a dealer!?

I kinda like the halogens, it's got a warmth to it, can see clearly and doesn't seem to blind oncoming traffic. Of course it could always be better but the stock ones seem fine to me.

I doubt we will see a major refresh yet, mainly because the van is still as good if not better than the competition. Toyota is still using a very old platform and there is no reason to put out a new model before they do. Honda has a new model, but frankly it sucks. The people who buy a Honda are going to do so because its a Honda, and they are not going to convert. Other things

- There are still some bugs with uconnect 4 I would like to see fixed, but otherwise its a solid van.
