More Chrysler cash for adaptive equipment

by Bill Cawthon on

Chrysler Group has increased to $1,000 the cash reimbursement it offers to help cover the cost of installing adaptive driver or passenger equipment on Chrysler, Jeep®, Dodge and Ram Truck vehicles. The company’s Automobility program was the first in the industry to help special-needs customers with the cost of installing rear-door lifts for wheelchair loading, hand controls for steering, braking and accelerating and other aftermarket products.

“We continue to have an unwavering commitment to the continued success of the Automobility Program so that our special-needs customers can fully participate in society and enjoy the freedom and independence that automotive transportation makes possible,” said Fred Diaz, Lead Executive for U.S. Sales.

Previously, only conversions to Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans were reimbursed up to a maximum of $1,000. Buyers of other Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram Truck models were limited to a maximum reimbursement of $750.

The Automobility cash reimbursement is available in addition to other incentive programs in effect at the time of purchase or lease.

Bill Cawthon grew up in the auto industry in the 1950s. His Dad worked for Chrysler and Bill spent a number of Saturdays down on the plant floor at Dodge Main in Hamtramck. Bill is also the U.S. market correspondent for, a British auto industry publication, and a member of the Texas Auto Writers Association, which has named the Jeep Grand Cherokee the “SUV of Texas” several times and named the Ram 1500 as the “Truck of Texas” two years running.

Bill has owned five Plymouths (including the only 1962 “Texan”), one Dodge and one Chrysler and is still trying to figure out how to justify a Wrangler. He also has owned at least one of every 1:87 scale model of a Chrysler product. You can reach him directly at (206) 888-7324 or by using the form.
