This time of year brings a refreshing energy as the sun is shining, kids are getting out of school and flowers are in full bloom. Along with summertime comes hot weather and the desire to stay cool.
Check out our tips to help you cool down while riding around town:
- Remote Start: Most people use the remote start feature to heat up their car in the winter. However, starting your vehicle a few minutes early in hot temperatures can help the air circulate and give the air conditioner a chance to cool the car’s interior. Remote start is an optional feature in every Stellantis vehicle, including the Chrysler Pacifica. You can even download the Uconnect App to start your car directly from your phone.
- Ventilated Seats: If your car is equipped with ventilated seats, they are a great way to cool off. Much like heated seats, ventilated seats are another form of temperature control for your seat. Ventilated seats use a series of fans to cool you down to your desired temperature. You can find ventilated seats in select models of the Jeep® Cherokee and Compass, Chrysler 300 and Pacifica (Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid), and Ram heavy-duty trucks.
- Tops Off: Driving with your vehicle’s top down doesn’t just look cool, it helps you feel cool too. When you take the top off your car, you’re able to feel the summer breeze, which will inevitably cool you off. You can drop the top down in the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Gladiator.
- Half Doors: Using the new half-door feature that Jeep offers on the Wrangler and Gladiator has a similar effect as dropping your car’s top. Half-doors will allow the wind to blow freely, helping to lower the temperature in your vehicle.
Take advantage of these vehicle features to make your drives, short or long, more comfortable during the summer months.
