Autotrader has announced its annual list of the 10 best cars for dog lovers and this year the Ram ProMaster City joins the four-time honored Chrysler Pacifica and Jeep® Wrangler as the ultimate dog-friendly vehicles.
A recent survey by Autotrader shows that more than 85% of dog owners think about transporting their dog when considering which vehicle to buy. To select their best cars for dog lovers, Autotrader experts started with vehicles that offer a plethora of pet-friendly features and accessories.
Being on the prestigious annual list for the first time is the 2022 Ram ProMaster City. The dog-friendly features of the compact van include a low load floor for easy entry and exit, comfortable seats and a second row bench seat that can be folded down and folded forward. The spacious cargo area behind the second row is easily accessed through double sliding doors and offers open floor space with D-ring mounts for travel crates and all the essentials a favorite pup needs.
“The Ram ProMaster City may seem like an odd choice for a dog-friendly car, but there’s no arguing with its features,” said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. “The low load floor and the variety of accessories and configurations make the ProMaster City a surprising yet competent dog-friendly transporter.”
As a four-time honoree, the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica continues to reinvent the minivan, a segment Chrysler invented, with an unprecedented level of functionality, versatility, technology and bold styling and the most advanced four-wheel drive system available in its class. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, the first and still the only plug-in hybrid in the segment, offers an all-electric range of more than 50 kilometers, the equivalent of more than 80 kilometers per gallon and a total range of more than 500 kilometers. When traveling with furry family members, the second and third rows of seats fold flat with industry-exclusive Stow ‘n Go seats, leaving plenty of room for dog kennels or room to roam when the vehicle is parked. Other dog-friendly features include the available Stow ‘n Vac system for quick and easy cleaning and the FamCAM interior camera, which allows front seat passengers to see rear occupants and even zoom in on dog passengers.
“Minivans are great dog-friendly and people-friendly transportation, but the Pacifica is attractive and has the option of a built-in vacuum to keep pet hair from building up,” Moody said. “The Stow ‘n Go seats are also useful for carrying dog toys and snacks on a road trip.”
Also a four time honoree, the 2022 Jeep Wrangler is perfect for taking man’s best friend on the road or trail. Dog lovers and their loyal dog lovers can enjoy year-round freedom in the open air with a variety of options available from Jeep Performance Parts, including the Sunrider for Hardtop and various water- and heat-resistant cab covers. All-weather floor and luggage mats protect the interior from mud, dirt and all the mess a dog can make. For dogs and their owners who prefer a quieter adventure, the first electrified 49 MPGe Jeep Wrangler 4xe offers legendary Jeep off-road capability in almost complete silence.
“The Jeep Wrangler is probably the perfect vehicle for dog owners looking for adventure,” Moody said. “In addition to its off-road capabilities, Jeep offers a host of great accessories, such as a soft box and other items, that make driving your four-legged friend safe and easy.”
Mopar accessories are available to complement the pet-friendly features of Chrysler, Jeep and Ram vehicles. Dog lovers can choose from lightweight pet kennels, as well as weatherproof floor mats and luggage mats to protect the interior of their vehicle. See the Mopar e-shop For more information.
