The Chrysler brand has now opened up ordering for its new Fathom Blue (PPS) exterior color on all trim-levels of its revised 2021 Chrysler Pacifica minivans, according to a post from the company’s Twitter page. The new color was originally discussed as a late availability color for the 2021 model year.
The new Fathom Blue color features a “color-shifting” hue so depending on how much ambient lighting is hitting the vehicle, it will appear to be a different shade of color depending on how you look at it. So if the vehicle is out in direct sunlight, the vehicle would appear to be almost a teal exterior color. Place the vehicle in the shade, you get a much deeper color look of almost a dark blue.
This isn’t the first time the manufacturer has had colors that have had these properties. Back in 2011, Chrysler featured a Blackberry Pearl Coat (PBV) across many vehicles in its lineup including Pacifica’s predecessor the Town & Country. That color would appear to be almost black when placed in the shade, but when ambient light would hit the vehicle it would turn a vibrant deep purple color.
Fathom Blue joins 9 other exterior colors that are available for 2021 on Pacifica. Those colors include Ceramic Grey, Billet Silver, Bright White, Brilliant Black, Granite Crystal, Luxury White, Maximum Steel, Ocean Blue Metallic, and Velvet Red. There is no additional cost for choosing the Phantom Blue color on any of the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica models.
