2020 BMW M5 Vs 2021 Chrysler Pacifica


Speed, comfort, elegance and sheer luxury on the road. That is what the new 2020 BMW M5 is all about. But you’re better off getting behind the wheel to experience what the car has to offer so as to make a conclusion on its capabilities. Your first experience will blow your mind. Acceleration to the 60 mph happens in less than 4 seconds.  The engine roars to life with 600 plus horsepower, confirming that indeed, the M5 is a beast on the road. That shouldn’t come as a surprise given that the M5 comes complete with a twin turbo V8 engine. The car is by all means the big luxury sedan you’ve been dreaming of.

The 2021 Chrysler Pacifica comes close as a competitor for a handful of reasons. Its optional hybrid powertrain is its main highlight. Other than that, think of it as any other minivan. It is sluggish in terms of speed, compared to the M5, as it hits the 60mph mark in 7.3 seconds.

Design & Style

It is impossible not to fall in love with the M5. Elegant leather interior complete with supple, comfortable supportive sport seats, you can be sure your driving experience will be transformed for the better. The seating position ensures you are comfortable. Then there is a slew of desirable features within reach. You get to adjust the radio with little to less distraction.  Ventilated front seats complete with massage functions ensure you drive like a royal. The list of luxurious extras goes on and on with heated front and rear seats, a power adjustable steering column and a four zone automatic climate control.

2021 Chrysler Pacifica’s design and style is good but does not hold a candle to the M5. Like hinted, it is a light weight minivan. That’s it really. The exterior does not inspire much as it is somewhat aesthetically average. It is in all fairness, a common utility van.

Technology & Safety

There’s of course, M5’s all-time popular iDrive software to make your driving easy. But then again, there is M5’s infotainment system which is just as mind-blowing as the car’s engine. Forward warning collision, adaptive cruise control complete with stop and go technology, standard lane departure warning coupled with lane keeping assist and most importantly, automated emergency braking. All these will make you feel like a pro driver.

As for 2021 Chrysler Pacifica, you get to enjoy the usual safety features. There isn’t much to expect other than rear parking sensors and a blind spot monitor, features which the M5 has. Chrysler clearly losses the battle to M5 here.


Hit the 60 mph mark in less than 4 seconds and you know for sure you have a special car. Keep in mind you have 8 auto transmission modes too. The M5 is simply a car you cannot afford to criticize. 600 plus torque will also have you feel like a champ on the road.

Chrysler minivans aren’t known to be too fast. To that end, the new 2021 Chrysler Pacifica lives to its billing. Not fast enough but strong enough to get you and your family moving. It is a non-hybrid model with an engine that is only capable of churning a 287 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

From comfort and style all the way to speed and overall performance, the 2020 BMW M5 series is your ultimate go to car. It does not drag expectations under the carpet, it does not struggle to impress and most importantly, it guarantees safety. What more can one ask for? Meanwhile, the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica is an everyday minivan for a modern young family.
