Be Ready for Tailgate Season with These Four FCA Vehicles
Football season is right around the corner and no matter which team you cheer for, you gotta’ be ready to tailgate! Kendall Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram has plenty of brands and vehicles that are ideal for tailgating.
Tailgating tends to require plenty of cargo. A tent, table, chairs, cooler(s), and more are all common tailgate items. So, of course, you want and need space in your tailgate vehicle for all your goodies. The Chrysler Pacifica has 140.5 cubic feet of cargo space when the Stow ‘n Go seats are folded into the built-in floor storage compartments and that is more than enough room for all your gear. Or maybe you aren’t the cargo driver, but the people driver. The Pacifica has plenty of room for friends and family hauling with three rows of seating for seven to eight passengers.
If you need even more tailgate ready features, don’t worry, there are plenty of other features that come standard on higher level trims or buyers can add on to their Pacifica. Available entertainment features include a 13-speaker or 20-speaker audio system, UConnect 8.4, and a 115-volt auxiliary power outlet is available. Also, the Chrysler Pacifica Limited features a built-in vacuum cleaner, os after all of the tailgating fun, users can quickly vacuum all of the grass and crumbs out of the van!
Entertainment features include a booming six-speaker sound system, UConnect 5.0 on the Tradesman and Express trims and UConnect 8.4 on all of the other trims. Features also include several USB ports, Bluetooth streaming, an auxiliary port and AM/FM capabilities. Just like the Pacifica, the Ram 1500 has a standard 12-volt power outlet for all of your charger needs while tailgating!
Whether you need plenty of cargo room or just a bit, the Ram 1500 comes with two different bed options. The standard bed size is a 5’7” and there is also a 6’4” option. Other useful Ram 1500 features for tailgating include the standard locking bed (so when you head into the game your truck is secured) when you have the locking bed cover, a spray in bed liner to protect the bed from cargo and people, and all-season tires (bad weather can’t stop your tailgate!).
The best tailgate feature is the available RamBox cargo management system. The RamBox cargo management system includes helpful organization bars for the truck bed as well as two built-in lockable containers on both sides of the truck bed. The lockable containers can be used for extra storage as well as a cooler! Yep, the lockable containers have drains, so you can fill them up with ice and your drinks and never even worry about carrying a cooler again.
Additional entertainment options to get your tailgate party poppin’ like SiriusXM radio, HD radio, premium speakers, or 9-Alpine speakers with a subwoofer are offered.
The Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited are equipped with features like a standard eight-speaker sound system, an audio jack for mobile devices, a 12-volt power outlet, and radio 130. In addition, plenty of extra entertainment features are offered. UConnect, a remote USB port, Bluetooth streaming, SiriusXM radio and an Alpine premium 9-speaker system with an all-weather subwoofer are options.
Now, let’s talk convenience! Get your mirrors out of the way and fit into that tight tailgating spot with manual fold-away mirrors. Tinted windshield glass will help keep the inside of your vehicle from getting too hot in the beating sun. Also, the standard off-road tires can help you get to any spot, no matter the terrain!
There are plenty of convenience options available for the Wrangler. Many of these features come standard on higher up trim levels like the Rubicon. All-season tires, all-terrain tires, tinted rear quarter and liftgate windows, and side steps are just some of the many additional features and options.
Upgrading to more convenience is, of course, an option! A cargo net, a second-row console for extra cargo storage, a third-row console, a power sunroof, and second-row 60/40 fold and tumble seats are available. The exterior of the vehicle, features a power liftgate, roof rails, all season performance tires, and side steps add extra capability.
A 12-volt power outlet, UConnect 5.0, a media hub with USB, SD, and Aux capability, Bluetooth audio and phone streaming, and a six-speaker audio system come with the base model. If you are looking for additional entertainment or standard tech with higher up trim levels, the Durango has plenty of options.
