Email   small font medium font large font


The Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Journey have been awarded Bark Buckle UP's 2010 Pet Safe Choice Awards at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show. The Pet Safe Choice Award is given to vehicles that best accommodate a variety of pet needs, including ventilation for pets and adaptability of third-party pet-travel gear.

"The 2010 Chrysler Town & Country continues to be the best vehicle to transport people, belongings and their pets with minivan-first second- and third-row fold-in-floor Stow `n Go seating, large in-floor covered storage bins, low step-in load floor, power-sliding doors and power liftgate," said Olivier Francois, President and CEO — Chrysler Brand, Chrysler Group LLC.

Bark Buckle UP evaluated vehicles on a variety of criteria, including accommodation of animals and various kennel sizes, ease of pet access within the vehicle, ease of pet entry and exit, pet-friendly interior surfaces and their ease of clean up.

"Pets are an extension of every family, and the Dodge Journey's best-in-class seating and storage solutions meet the needs of all family members from kids to pets. With features like the available integrated booster seat that accommodates children comfortably, to in-floor storage that keeps all the pet-essentials organized and easy-to-reach, the Dodge Journey makes every trip better for the entire family," said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO — Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC.
