Chrysler Has the Perfect Vehicle for Pet Owners, Just in Time for National Pet Day

April 11th is National Pet Day. Chrysler believes the minivan's special features make it the perfect vehicle for your four-legged friend.


Next week, the nation will celebrate National Pet Day on April 11th. Chrysler is already celebrating, pointing out how its 2022 Chrysler Pacifica is “purrfect” for pets. The Chrysler Pacifica is also perfect for children and many of the same features protect your furry friends the same way they protect small children.

Pet Friendly Features

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica now has a new standard rear-seat reminder to alert the driver with a chime and dashboard message to check the rear seats whenever you exit the minivan. Never again should a child or pet be forgotten in the back seat.

The Chrysler Pacifica also has the FamCAM interior camera, so you can keep an eye on the back seat and know your pet is alright. The FamCAM keeps the driver’s focus on the road where it belongs, while providing reassurance to the driver that their pet is happy and healthy. The driver can even zoom in to determine exactly what the pet is doing.

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica has plenty of room to accommodate your furry friend, no matter how big they may be. The minivan has Stow ‘n Go seating, plus the second and third-row seats fold flat into the floor, providing lots of space for pet kennels or for pets to roam when the vehicle is parked.

Another great thing about the Stow ‘n Go system is the in-floor storage. There is a lot of added room for pet toys, food and equipment. The in-floor bins mean that the items aren’t cluttering up the minivan, leaving more room for other passengers and their items.

A great perk for pet parents is the built-in Stow ‘n Vac system that makes clean up a breeze. Everyone needs to vacuum out their vehicle upon occasion. The Stow ‘n Vac makes it less of a chore.

Added Safety for Passengers and Pets

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica earned a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and is the most awarded minivan over the last six years. In other words, it is one of the safest vehicles you can buy. It is also the only minivan with available all-wheel drive. It can take you more places, safely. It will make getting to the dog park or out on the trails easier and your “best-friend” will love you for that.

Mopar even has specially designed pet kennels to safely transport furry family members. The kennels can be anchored to the van’s floor to help the pet ride more securely and safely. The kennel folds flat when not being used. The minivan also has hands-free sliding doors and liftgate. Access to the Pacifica is as simple as a kick under the door or liftgate, making it easier to juggle pets and personal items when getting in the vehicle.

Those are just some of the reasons that Chrysler believes the 2022 Pacifica is the perfect pet chariot. I’m sure you can come up with more perks to add to the list!
