Out of all the models Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler have to offer, these are sure to make summer family travel easier and more enjoyable.
Summer is well under way, and for many it’s time to head out on family vacation. Whether you’re looking to buy a vehicle to account for your growing family or you just want to rent a reliable mode of transportation for your vacation, these Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep models can more than accommodate your needs.
Dodge Grand Caravan
We’ll start out with Dodge’s Grand Caravan. For families, this minivan delivers the goods in the technology department. The Grand Caravan features two screens: one for the second and one for the third row. Each is independent, so kids can watch two different movies at once. The Grand Caravan also comes with a Blu-Ray option.
Rear seating features USB ports to keep gaming systems, tablets and smartphones charged for the entire trip. Add in Sirius XM Radio, and you’ve got enough entertainment to last for even the longest of drives.
The Grand Caravan gives passengers a roomy interior; it offers up to 143 cubic feet of cargo space, with fold and go second and third rows to make getting in and out as easy as possible.
Chrysler Town and Country
The Chrysler Town and Country is another minivan option that offers families the option of spacious comfort for summer road trips. Storage is king in the Town and Country. Rear seating cup holders can be accessed and filled from the front row, and numerous storage compartments throughout the vehicle add more space for your luggage.
Like the Grand Caravan, the Chrysler Town and Country features two screens independent of one another to keep passengers entertained. Seating is versatile, with fold away seats to create added cargo space and a third row that can become rear-facing should the need arise.
The Town and Country is also known for its safety features such as airbags surrounding the entire interior and LATCH systems to help keep children’s safety seats tethered to anchor points in case of an accident on the road.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
Unlike the minivan options, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a more rugged vehicle and can be especially useful if you plan on taking your family to the great outdoors for summer vacation this year. The Grand Cherokee comes with ample technology, including an optional Wi-Fi hotspot, second row Blu-Ray screens, wireless headphones and the connectivity options to accommodate all of your entertainment devices.
For the outdoors, there’s nothing like a Jeep, and the Grand Cherokee is made to get you where you want to be. Its 4-wheel-drive can tackle any terrain, and the Grand Cherokee accomplishes this with safety in mind. It’s equipped with airbags surrounding the interior and an emergency call button to easily reach 911 if needed.
The Chrysler 300 sedan is a great option for those who don’t necessarily want the bulk of a minivan or SUV but are still looking for a comfortable ride for family travel. The Chrysler 300 features many entertainment technology features including BeatsAudio™, easy connectivity for cell phones and a media hub for connecting to USB devices and playing music for the whole car. The 300 provides lots of leg room and comfort for both the front and rear seats to make traveling easier.
For longer trips, the Chrysler 300 gives drivers All Wheel Drive and an 8 speed transmission that offers great fuel economy. Safety features on the 300 include brake assist that provides extra brake pressure in emergency situations and blind spot monitoring for safer lane changes and driving on the highway.
