When it comes to making canine companions bark in approval, the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica and 2019 Jeep® Wrangler stand out as among the best. Both vehicles were recently revealed by Autotrader as among the 10 Best Cars for Dog Lovers.
The 10 Best Cars for Dog Lovers list, announced for the sixth consecutive year by Autotrader, helps mark National Dog Day, celebrated on August 26. 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.”
The honor is the latest for the Chrysler Pacifica, the most awarded minivan since 2016 with more than 100 industry accolades. The Chrysler Pacifica includes 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 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 iconic Jeep Wrangler, the most capable and recognized vehicle in the world, also keeps pets in mind. Helping the Jeep Wrangler, as well as the Chrysler Pacifica, make tails wag in approval are available Mopar pet-friendly accessories for both vehicles. 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.
