Autotrader.com has announced their 10-Best Cars for Dog Lovers list yesterday, which was National Dog Day. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) had two of their vehicles featured on the list, with the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica and 2019 Jeep® Wrangler taking home the honors.
Editors at Autotrader curated the list of the best rides to help shoppers find the perfect new car for traveling with their four-legged friends. Cars on the list include extensive features geared at keeping both human and canine passengers secure.
“At Autotrader, our goal is to help people navigate the car-buying process through our extensive lists of vehicles that suit consumers’ various needs,” says Brian Moody, executive editor at Autotrader. “With this in mind, we came up with a list of cars that offer both comfort and convenience features pet owners should consider if they’re buying a car.”
As the Chrysler Pacifica continues to be the most awarded minivan since its introduction in 2016, the Chrysler minivan features convenient dog-friendly features, such as an available Stow ‘n Vac integrated vacuum powered by RIDGID for quick cleanups. The Stow ‘n Go seating and storage system with Stow ‘n Assist and Easy Tilt, as well as optional power-folding Stow ‘n Go third-row seats, clear out an extra room for pets without needing to remove seats. The segment-first hands-free sliding doors and liftgate open with the kick of a foot, making loading pets easier.
The Jeep Wrangler continues to be the most capable and recognized vehicle in the world. For those who live an active lifestyle with their dogs, there are Mopar pet-friendly accessories for both the Wrangler and Pacifica. The lightweight Mopar pet kennel features two pockets, three doors, a carrying handle and tie-down straps that secure to the cargo area to help prevent sliding, while Mopar all-weather floor mats and cargo mats protect the interior. We recently got to see the Mopar pet kennel first hand on the Mopar-Modified 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon from Mopar.
